The humble scales has come along way in the last few years offering more than just your body weight..
I am not one to step on a scales often and not because of the fear of what I will read but because I dont have one nor would I bother looking for one to keep in check what the figures might read overtime, I usually let my belt do that or which clothes either stay up or cant fit no more.
The Terraillon R-Link has much more to offer than the conventional scales but first check out the unboxing below…
R-Link is the thinnest scale in the world with only 12,5 mm height. It analyses your weight, BMI and your body composition (body fat and water, muscle and bone masses). It connects to the free Wellness Coach app where you can monitor your progress and get free advice to reach your goals.
Yeah it comes with an app just like kettles and lights do in your home today,If that bothers you get use to the idea of apps and connected tech in your home because its here to stay. The app is available on both Android and iOS platforms..
The Build Quality..
Well its built like a tank..Putting it mildly and it also weighs like one too,its by no means light comapred to a standard scales but you are getting one that will last quite some time so its worth its weight in this respect. Its got an LCD display up top with three virtual keys to toy with being “Set -Up and Down”
Its a toe and fingerprint magnet so socks on never mind underneath you wont see nor will anyone else unless they fancy a nosey of the underside which is home to the pairing button and power supply. Its also sat on 4 feet raised with rubber caps to keep it steady in one place. It blends in nicely on a tiled or wodden floor too given its neutral colour..
To use the scales is simple once set up via the app and this measures more than your weight and more than one person can use it, Up to 8 people can use this so it ideal for any household if they are bothered about themeselves. To wake it up you just stand on it,nothing to press or buttons to fiddle with I like that it reminds me of mobile phones with tap to wake.. Pairing it a first was a bit of a nightmare but it was sorted eventually and you have to sign up to the app which collects data,This might be a put off for some. Aside your weight it also measures body mass index (BMI) bone,muscle,fat and water. Its more than enough for most.. You can also set targets and get activity reports.
The Scales is really aimed at those whom want to keep a check on more than their weight and would most likely suit athletes or fitness finatics for example of for those who want some kind of information delivered to them daily but not the entire offerings here, For me my interest was weight and this was what I kept my eye on over the last few weeks on and off between holidays and trips I had to do.For the money you are getting a solid piece of equipment with an easy to read display but would be an overkill for the average householder in one sense but a really good looking and info based machine nonetheless.
