Myzone have made their name in the fitness industry by creating wearable fitness heartrate systems that use wireless and cloud technology to monitor physical activity. This allows fitness club operators to use a connected solution to accurately monitor their clients’ progress. Myzone can provide information on heart rate, calories and time exercising that convert into Myzone Effort Points (MEPs), with a focus on rewarding effort rather than fitness.
The Myzone MZ-20 Home Scales can be used as a standalone product - it is not necessary to be a Myzone user, however, if you are, you will find this additional information useful. These scales not only provide you with your overall weight but also give you a comprehensive breakdown of your body metrics. That might be a bit over kill for simply shedding the Christmas lbs, but if you are looking to change your health with some serious training, this could be exactly the information you need. These scales are available in two colour designs: White or Black. Both would look sleeker without the colourful Myzone logo on them, but besides that they feel sturdy and well made, with a large clear digital display that pops up when you step on.
For a full body metric breakdown you will need to pair these scales with the Myzone app, it is here you will find a live data breakdown of your body metrics that includes your weight, body fat, muscle mass, water mass, bone mass, protein and mineral content, as well as providing an estimate on the number of calories you should be consuming for your personal goals. The downside to this system is you need to grab your phone, switch on your Bluetooth and wait for the scales to connect every time you want a detailed reading, and like so many similar products of this nature, most of the time it syncs and sometimes it doesn’t. It’s frustrating but not a deal breaker.
The Myzone MZ-20 scale is a great device to use alongside your Myzone fitness routine. Even if you don’t already use Myzone the information you gain through the scales can be used to track your health and improve your overall fitness. Best suited for those looking to monitor their body metrics on a regular basis. RRP $69.00
