The Device

A small scale that connects to mobile devices via Bluetooth.

The App

The scale would be accompanied with an app that…

  • Displays the weight of the item placed on the scale
  • Let’s you adjust the unit of measurement
  • Let’s you use the tare function
  • Let’s use calibrate the scale
  • Displays the battery level of the scale

A Few Other Thoughts

  • If the scale could be integrated with Square, charges could automatically be determined by the weight of the item(s) being sold.
  • There could be a larger version with a higher weight capacity.
  • It would use Low Energy Bluetooth to communicate with the device and hibernate when it’s not in use.
