The Withings scale is an amazing scale. It tracks your weight for you and send it to your iPhone or iPad. You can see a graph of you success or failure as you track your weight. If you are daring you can even have it post your weight daily to Facebook or Twitter. The scale knows who it is weighing and can track your whole family. I think can with this scale and the Fitbit that was previously recommended, you can't help but to lose weight.
