Sports company Under Armour is working on a new fitness device, with the help of phone maker HTC.
Roughly one year ago, Under Armour announced a new fitness app, called UA Record, and at the same time, HTC announced it had formed a partnership with Under Armour to develop products that integrate directly with the sports platform. Now, according to some documents posted to Bluetooth.org, which oversees development of the Bluetooth standard, both companies appear to be making a connected scale.
PhoneScoop first noticed the listing for the device - which looks like it was made available in late November. The device is called "UA Scale" and described as a "Bluetooth scale" for measuring "weight and body fat". It also uses Bluetooth 4.1, meaning the scale will likely be able to pair with smartphones in order to remotely surface your fitness results in real-time.
Both HTC and Under Armour are mentioned as providers of this device. The companies, which haven't yet announced or even confirmed the existence of UA Scale, were previously working on a fitness wearable known as the Grip. But that has been delayed until next year.
Keep in mind HTC said it was working with Under Armour to develop products that integrate with UA Record (a partnership that'll see Under Armour's sports experts working with HTC's Connected Product unit), so we can assume UA Scale will work with UA Record.
