If you need high technology in every household appliance, you'll be happy to know that the Withings WiFi Body Scale is now available in Australia, letting you track your weight over Wi-Fi.
The device can track up to eight different users, sending results to a password-protected website or iPhone app. It not only measures weight, but also calculates BMI and fat and lean masses. Plus, it automatically switches itself off.
The superfied set of scales will set you back $249, although it's available for $225 until Xmas.
