UP by Jawbone meal event
MINNEAPOLIS-The Escali SmartConnect Kitchen Scale now connects to the UP by Jawbone application, enabling users to update their body weight and meal logs with measurements gathered by the company's kitchen and body scales.
The SmartConnect Kitchen Scale will improve the accuracy of nutrition information stored in the UP application by calculating nutrition information from actual weight measurements instead of relying on the user to correctly estimate a portion size. "Rather than guessing if the banana you had for breakfast was small, medium or large; you'll now know exactly how much banana you've consumed by weight," said Theo Prins, president of Escali. "This will give you the most accurate idea of how many calories or carbs you've consumed."
"Escali's SmartConnect products are designed to give users easy access to information about their diet and body to help them make healthy decisions. Part of that equation is letting users share their data with their favorite applications," Prins said. "We're not looking to be the next MyFitnessPal or compete with Apple's recently announced HealthKit. Rather, we'd like Escali SmartConnect to compliment those applications."
