One of the best things about technology is how it can mediate mundane or annoying activities, such as hopping on the scale to see the damage caused by the last few months of winter. Enter the Medisana TargetScale ($207), which transforms the entire notion of the bathroom scale into a device that any UFO fan could appreciate. The TargetScale quickly and accurately measures weight, BMI, water percentage, and even muscle and bone mass. Information for up to four users can be stored, and as you program a target weight, the rings on the scale will glow accordingly to how close you are to achieving your fitness goal. This information can also be monitored remotely with its free VitaDock app from your iPhone, so there’s no escaping your guilt at the next three martini lunch.
