The typical scale is a very limited tool that most likely leaves you frustrated with a so-called lack of results. Think about it. What does that single number really tell you? How do you know you haven’t lost fat but gained muscle? Or maybe you’ve just put on temporary water weight. You’ll never truly know unless you have the right measuring tools. And that’s where Garmin’s new Index Smart Scale comes into play. Thanks to its many index metrics like body fat percentage, muscle mass and BMI, you’ll know exactly where you stand rather than constantly questioning all of your efforts.
Rather than having to go in search of your smartphone or ANT+ watch (and most likely first thing in the morning) just to weigh yourself, Garmin wanted to streamline the weigh-in process by eliminating the need for extra gadgets each time you decided to hop on the scale. Instead, the Garmin Index Smart Scale connects directly to your WiFi/WPS router or Garmin Connect Mobile app.
Yes – you can set it for any of the following three display modes: LB, KG, and ST.
It adds both muscle mass and bone density metrics, giving you a larger overall picture of what your weight in pounds, stones or kilograms really means.
At this point in time, MyFitnessPal— a free downloadable app that also acts as a food diary and activity-tracking display, making it a nice one-stop-shop alternative to Garmin Connect.
