BlipCare launches Wi-Fi weight scale in time for New Year resolutions
CHICAGO — BlipCare on Tuesday launched the BlipCare Wi-Fi Weight Scale, one of the first weight scales to provide reminders of the time users prefer to step on the scale.
Whenever the user steps on the scale, the scale stores the reading with a time stamp and transmits it to the user’s account over their home Wi-Fi network. The user or their caretaker can now track, chart and trend the data from anywhere.
"We felt the need for a simple and accurate weight scale that a user could use anywhere and take control of their weight without worrying about connectivity issues," stated Sukhwant Khanuja, CEO BlipCare. "We look forward to developing other easy-to-use wellness products to meet the growing demand for personal monitoring."
The scale helps track weight and body mass for up to 10 users and provides goal setting features along with easy-to-read data charts. The Blip Wi-Fi Scale also provides accurate weight readings on carpets. "We realized that in order to provide the most precise weight reading, simply stepping on the scale was not enough," Khanuja said. "So we designed our scales to work in different environments yet consistently providing accurate readings."
The Blip Scale also features kick-buttons, which allow multiple users to use the scale.
