Knowing these additional data provides an in-depth look into your weight loss. You may feel frustrated that you do not seem to lose weight, only to realize you are actually gaining muscle mass hence the result.

The company also offers an in-app purchase called Story Running, which provides four interactive audio experiences that would “help users get in shape”. It comes with travel, fantasy, adventure, and motivation modes. For instance, the travel mode immerses runners into the streets of Rio de Janeiro, while you take on the role of an escaping prisoner in the adventure mode.

The Runtastic Libra scale will be available beginning mid-November for $130.
