Genius Scale Only Shows You How Much You've Gained Or Lost

Illustration for article titled Genius Scale Only Shows You How Much You've Gained Or Lost

When you're battling the bulge, your bathroom scale can either be your best friend or your worst enemy. So instead of displaying your actual weight, which can be discouraging, this scale only tells you how much you've lost or gained.


The first time you step on the $78 Quantum scale it registers your weight, but still keeps it a secret from you. And after that it simply gives you a plus or minus reading depending on if you've gained weight since your last reading, or lost some.

Admittedly it's not the easiest way to tell if you're making weight loss progress unless you're keeping tabs on your up and down measurements on a daily basis. But if you're dedicated to the cause, it should make the morning routine of weighing yourself a bit less dreadful. [Firebox]


Arggh! there goes a...snake a snake!

Don't worry, Apple will sue them for using the word Genius...

Joking aside though, I think this is really expensive for a scale that just tells you you change in weight. I have a pretty cool scale which tells you all kinds of things, including how much you've gained or lost as well as any goals you may have, BMI, etc. All for like $25 iirc.
