This scale is a great tool to expand your fitness kit. It will help you keep track of your weight and body fat and the Fitbit website or app will show you a graph of your progress over time. It is a great motivator! Whether you own a Fitbit tracker or not, this scale will help motivate you to lose weight. The scale will accommodate up to 8 users and you can choose to share your weight with friends to create a weight loss competition if you choose. I personally had a separate one and lost 47 pounds in about 6 months and this scale was a big help in that. Anytime I got a craving for something sweet I'd load up the app and look at all the progress I made. I highly recommend this scale if you're serious about losing weight and turning around your personal fitness towards the right direction.
