I just hope on the scales in the morning and hop off. No need to open the app! No need to have the phone even in the same room! The Scales connect to WiFi and therefore send my results "to the cloud". I get to work and open my phone app and it's all there. Amazing. As a bonus, it shows me the weather when I get on the scales, which is actually quite useful. I know what to expect, what to pack for the rest of the day. Brilliant.
