Polar has announced that it will be getting more involved in lifestyle tracking by adding its first smart scale to its offerings in the Polar Balance.

Polar Balance isn't just a weighing scale as it offers much more data for the user, in conjunction with other Polar hardware and software options.

The Bluetooth connected Balance smart scale can send weight measurements to a Polar wearable or directly to the Polar Flow app via iOS or Android device.

The scale works with the Weight Loss Speedometer in Polar Flow which shows, at a glance, how a person's efforts to shift some weight is going. The scales also offer motivational goal updates and encourage healthy eating.

The Polar Flow app tailors goals to suit the individual. By using daily activity data from wearables combined with the scales information those goals should be more efficient and effective than ever.

Polar Balance works with Polar Loop, Loop 2, Loop Crystal, A360, M400 and V800. It can also be used as a stand-alone scale by up to 10 people who are recorded in the memory.

The Polar Balance Scale is available now for $100 or €100.
