Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: There’s Now A Fitness-Tracking Mirror
If your scale wasn’t stressing you out enough as you try and track your fitness goals, there is now a mirror you can use that will scan your body and tell you what progress you are (or aren’t) making.
It’s the Naked 3D Fitness Tracker from Naked Labs. It looks like a jazzy version of your ordinary mirror, but really, the tracker and its accompanying turntable scale scan your body and calculate your muscle growth or loss, and body fat. You stand still and naked on the scale, in front of the mirror, and when a circle lights up on the side of it, that confirms that it’s reading your body composition. The data is then sent to your phone where you can see your developments via the Naked Fit app. And with time-lapse results, you can track the changes your body has gone through over a period.
The turntable scale is also marketed as having precise weight sensing; when charged it can go months without having to be charged again, and the wireless turntable scale and mirror fits seamlessly into your home. And, at the least, you can always just use it as an ordinary mirror to get more bang for your buck.
The scale, which won’t ship until March 2017, is originally priced at $999. But Naked Labs has special pricing going on through May 17, with the scale and mirror selling together for $499.
I think it’s a nice idea if used in a healthy manner. That means, not stepping on the scale every day to the point that you become obsessive about it all, because Lord knows that happens so easily. But I think that we can all agree that even when the bathroom scale is playing with our emotions, we are aware that we’re making progress based on the way our clothes fit us: if our jeans aren’t so tight, if we can tuck our tops into our pants–through the inches we’ve lost. So in that way, I do think this tracker could be nice to have for the fitness lover. Is it worth the money, though? Well, if you’ve got it like that…
