I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting weight loss products. The two products shown above are interesting to me for very different reasons. I have a weight scale in my bathroom already, but this Smart Bluetooth 4.0 Fat Scale with Intelligent Weight Tool App (in white), available on Gearbest intrigues me because of the smartphone app function that is available. The scale is also available in black and orange.
I am overweight for my height, I’ll admit it, have been since my second child was born. I don’t love to exercise and having children somehow changed my previously naturally slim frame and high metabolism so that I didn’t lose the weight after my son was born. Add a third child on top of that, adding more weight and combine with my love-hate relationship with exercise and eating healthy and you can see where this story ends, right? I know many women out there have a similar story.
So, here’s where I stand — 5 foot 3 inches and about 40-50 pounds overweight. It’s my ugly truth, and man does it hurt to see it in black & white.
I don’t obsess over it and, in fact, rarely weigh myself. And while I have tried many diets and workout programs, there are few that I seem to be motivated to follow through with or keep track of long-term. That’s why I was interested in trying this particular weight scale because it comes with an accompanying smart phone app that takes all the work out of tracking weight and determining BMI among other features like body fat and water levels. And the 3.0″ backlit LED night vision screen display is nice, too.
This smart scale tracks body weight, body fat, water, BMI, bone mass, visceral fat, muscle rate, metabolic rate, indoor temperature, and more. Weight can be displayed in kg or pounds, to suit your personal preference. I like that the history of weigh-ins is tracked and displayed in graph form, making it really easy to see your progress. The app can also support mutilple household members, allowing your entire family to benefit from the health-tracking features. If you’re into sharing your progress with others, there are social sharing functions that enable you to do that, as well.
To use, simply step on the scale with your smart phone nearby and the scale will use Bluetooth to automatically connect with the app and upload your current measurements. So easy! This scale and app combo will make the perfect no-fuss addition to your fitness regimen. My husband is going to love this because he’s even more concerned with his weight and all that stuff than I am!
These Magnetic Weight Loss Toe Rings are something I have never heard about before, so I was interested to see what they were all about. They are marketed as a device that helps you lose weight without exercise by stimulating accupressure points on your big toe via the powerful magnets on each ring. They are also supposed to make you use your abdominal and femoral muscles more effectively, thus enhancing your physical fitness even more.
I’ve only been wearing them for about a week, so I’m not sure if they are helping me lose weight yet or not. But, they are pretty comfortable to wear, even with socks and shoes on. No one even knows they are there. I do feel like more muscles are stimulated while walking, but I’m not sure if that’s really happening or if just the fact that I read that they would do that has influenced me. But, they are super inexpensive and comfortable to wear so I think they are worth it.
GearBest has tons of really neat products. I am very satisfied with what I have received from them and am interested in trying other products. Shipping was fast and easy, too, which is always a plus! Check out their site at the links below and let me know if you’d be interested in trying the products I’ve discussed here or another product found on their site. Why are you interested in the product you chose? I’d love to hear all about your fitness journey and how you think GearBest might help you with that!
