Body Fat BMI Scale

When it comes to getting healthy, just knowing your weight isn’t always enough. Depending on your body type and goals, knowing your other health stats such as your body fat percentage, BMI, basal metabolism rate, etc., can help you know if you’re going in the right direction or not. For example, if you wanted to gain muscle, this scale would help you determine how much muscle you’re gaining or if you’re just gaining water weight or fat. When HUTbIT reached out to have their digital scale reviewed, I was happy to give it a spin to see how it worked. Overall, it works exactly how described and gave all the details that a regular scale can’t give you.

Measurements on the HUTbIT

The HUTbIT digital scale measures your weight, BMI, body fat percentage, subcutaneous fat, visceral fat, body water, skeletal muscle, muscle mass, bone mass, protein, basal metabolism rate and metabolic age

How to set it up

After you open the scale, inside the instructions is the QR code you scan so you can download the Feelfit app that will give you all the measurements. You download the app, sign up, set up a profile and then it’s time to get on the scale. Take off your socks when you step on it so it can get an accurate measurement. The measurements take about 20 seconds. Once you’re on, your phone will connect to the scale through bluetooth and load your stats. You can create unlimited profiles for the different people in your home.

Here’s what it looks like when it loads all your stats:

Overall thoughts

When it comes to getting all of your health data, the HUTbIT scale is a great option. I wish the weight was in lbs instead of stones and having to convert it. It wasn’t too big of a deal, but thankfully the weight on the scale itself is in lbs. Every time you get on the scale, it records it to the app so you can see your progress in every area.

Here’s a video to show you exactly how it works:

WiFi Endoscope

The Vodool Wireless Endoscope is a semi-rigid IP67 inspection camera with a nearly 12 foot long cable that allows you to slap a camera where the sun don’t shine.

If features a rechargeable battery, several end tools you can attach to it including a mirror, magnet, and hook. Extremely useful if you’re fishing for keys in a storm grate.

Using the WiFi Borescope app the image from the camera streams in fast enough to be useful (a few frames a second,) the picture quality is a decent 2mp, although it very much varies by distance and what the lighting source is. My 5yo immediately stuck the camera in her mouth while I was recording so she could see what’s bothering her (new teeth). No, I did not ask her to, no that’s not what it’s for, here’s a picture however of a 5 year molar coming in.

Unfortunately the lighting isn’t automatic. You can raise or lower the light at the end of the endoscope to get a better image. The software needs some work. Videos saved seem to have issues if I attempt to play them in other players, but I don’t think that’s generally what most people are looking for in an endoscope. You want to see what’s clogged in the drain or what’s right under the engine of your car, of what’s inside this wall here before I hit it with an axe.

Or like my 5yo, what’s bugging you at the back of your mouth.

I’ve had so many uses for this type of product in my life, and since I got it I’ve had next to none, however it does work well, let you check out what’s in that mouse hole or kid’s mouth (not recommended,) and see things you couldn’t otherwise.

Coming in at $35 I’m thinking this thing is beyond useful.

That said, you’ll quickly realize while attempting pipe spelunking that the camera head will immediately manage to get gunked up, and the rigid cable has to keep bending. I do not think this is particularly suited for pipe inspections. My dreams of having Roto Rooter’s cameras are a ways off. It is great for peeking in an air vent however.

The only thing I really wish it could do is be on something other than WiFi, or have casting built in. I had a use case where I needed to broadcast my view to a TV, and since my WiFi was devoted to talking to the endoscope, I couldn’t screen cast.

I never ran the camera battery down, coming in at 1000mAh my guess is it’s got about a 75 minute runtime. Simple USB recharging via Micro USB. A pretty cool product.

Smart Plug

If you’ve got Google Assistant/Home or Alexa and a plug somewhere in your house you want to turn on and off remotely but don’t want to invest in a smart home hub, Vodool’s Smart Plug may be what you’re looking for.

You can schedule on/off times with a timer, control via Google or Amazon smart services, and all you need is a 2.4gHz WiFi network.

The Vodool Smart Plug also packs a 2.4amp USB port for device charging, is UL listed, and is built like a brick.

What’s good about the Vodool Smart Plug?

  • Connects to your WiFi
  • Up and running in about a minute
  • Works great with Google Assistant (probably with Alexa too)
  • Adds a USB 2.0 2.4amp plug as a value added bonus

What use is this?

Personally I was using it in my living room to turn on and off the lamp that is located in the worst possible position for a human to reach.

Overall

If you’ve been looking for an inexpensive Assistant/Alexa integrated solution to turning things off and on, you can get into the smart plug game for about $20.
