    Bluetooth Scale Question

    Is there a Bluetooth scale available, where your personal trainer can see your weight (and other things like body fat percentage) remotely?

    With the COVID situation, I am lucky enough to have a trainer helping me virtually. It would help her if she could see my progress on the scale. I don't know if that can be possible or not. I don't want to buy a random one, before asking.

    Thanks

    bluetooth is pretty short range, isn't it?

    Only way I can think of to do this, would to be to use a fitbit scale, and give your trainer access to your fitbit account. fitbit isn't the only brand that does this, but that's what I use...

    It would be safer for your personal information, to email your trainer updates when needed.

    I use the Withings scale, it has multiple users and links to your phone and health app for ios. The accuracy of BMI or anything else it reads is up for debate.

    The scale that builds up on my bluetooth is just earwax. Just wipe it off with a damp paper towel. A swab with isopropyl alchol (rubbing alcohol) to clean the orifice and rubber cup.
