This is no ordinary digital scale! It's the first scale I've tried that includes an app and wi-fi! It's also the first with information so in-depth.
For proper weight measurements, here's a summary of some of the requirements, which can be found in the iTeknic instruction manual:
- Test yourself around the same time and conditions daily.
- Make sure you're barefoot and your feet are not dirty.
- Use on a hard, flat surface.
- Do not weigh yourself when sick, after a shower, sauna or bath, after heavy drinking, engorgement or strenuous exercise.
According to the manual, those factors may cause inaccurate results, which is reasonable.
After downloading the app, I understand and like this scale even more. Following your weight posting on the scale, you hear a tone on the app. You are then given a multitude of information. It displays your weight, BMI, Body Fat %, Visceral Fat, Body Water, Skeletal Muscle %, Muscle Mass, Bone Mass, Protein %, BMR, and Metabolic Age. It's embarrassing, especially being overweight, to see that the metabolic age is so many years older than my actual age, but it is necessary and motivating to have it on screen, right in front of me.
