PICOOC Smart Weighing Scale Mini Review

Sunday, September 24, 2017

Everyone's into their #balikalindogprogram lately and I can't help but stand back and assess myself. Here's the deal, I haven't watched my weight in a long time. And I also don't observe any diet to complement my health either. Eeeeck! 

I didn't expect that with a smart weighing scale, I will get the nudge that I needed to finally be on track for my health.


PICOOC SMART WEIGHING SCALE MINI


The PICOOC Smart Weighing Scale comes in a pizza box-like package that contains the following:


As soon as I was able to unbox the items, I noticed that there is still a transparent film to protect the unit from scratches. I tried looking for the batteries in the box, but I found out that it is already installed at the back of the PICOOC smart weighing scale

This unit comes with a rubber stopper in every corner at its bottom to protect it from movement and damage.

CONNECTING TO SMARTPHONE


To be able to monitor 11 body indexes, I needed to download the PICOOC app on my smartphone. (Both available in the App Store and Google Play Store!) I synced PICOOC Weighing Scale to my phone by scanning the QR code present in the box and unit itself.

After creating my account, I was able to finally see the dashboard of the app where all the information is stored. The app dashboard is idiot-proof therefore making it easy for me to navigate around.

LET THE WEIGH-IN BEGIN!


These are the following situations needed to be avoided to get the accurate weight measurements:

* After strenuous exercise
* After sauna or a bath
* After heavy drinking
* After ingesting significant food and/or water

There is a "weigh button" at the bottom of the dashboard to start the weight taking. As the unit is connected to my phone via bluetooth, the PICOOC app will advise once one can set foot on the unit. The person who's about to take his/her weight should step on the metal plates of the weighing scale to get the accurate results. (Apologies on my sausage-y feet! 😂  )

The LED numbers being displayed may initially vary for several seconds when measuring. After the measurement is complete, the numbers will settle to show the correct measurement. The same measurement together with a report will also be sent to the app as soon as the process is successfully complete.

The measurement report includes the following body indexes: 

* Basal metabolic rate
* Body weight
* Muscle
* Visceral fat index
* Body water
* Protein
* Bone mass
* BMI
* Metabolic age
* Body Score
* Body Type

If these terms daunt you, don't worry! They are defined when you click them on the measurement report. Take this for example. 😊

What makes weighing with PICOOC Smart Weighing Scale more fun aside from the intensive measurement report is that you can have your family and friends create their own account on the app, too. They'll also be able to see the trend of their weight through their own account in the PICOOC app.

This weighing scale didn't fail to ride the everything's-going-smart memo. It only took me a few minutes to setup the scale and sync it to my phone.

The PICOOC Smart Weighing Scale did a perfect job in providing a seamless process to check weight over a period of time with body index information such as BMI, Bone Mass, Body Water and etc included. The only important thing that I needed to know to gain accurate results is my height in cm. :)

The unit looks sleek and modern that's why it looks nice in the household. As for the app, I'm glad that it didn't hang when I tried to weigh or just check on my measurement report.

For Php 1,990, this may come tad pricey for a weighing scale to some. However, the PICOOC Smart Weighing Scale made me realize what I need to work on to sustain an outstanding body score. This is also perfect for those who are trying to reach a weight goal over a period of time. Not that they can only track their weight loss, but they can also get a glimpse of their general health status.
