The point, of course, is to track your measurements over time to help motivate you to achieve your fitness goals. It even compares your measurements to "ideal" values as an added incentive. If you are serious about getting fit, keeping a record of your progress is always a good idea—although at $183, only serious food and gadget junkies need apply. [Withings via ChipChick via Hometone]

Perhaps I'm a little out of the loop on weight maintenance, since I've been the same size since I was 15, but isn't this being a little obsessive? Also, how is a scale going to know your body fat measurements?

$183 will also buy you a nice weight set, use it for that instead.
