Charts & graphs! Who doesn't love them? Especially when they're about your weight, body fat percentage, and BMI. This little Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled scale will give you all the charts and graphs you want about your weight. Track in all on an app on your phone and connect it to your fitness tracker to see what happens when you walk all those steps. Just don't blame it when it doesn't tell you what you want.

What could happen if something went wrong

This product meets our Minimum Security Standards and Fitbit seems to do a good job taking privacy and security seriously. It does send your weight, BMI, and other biometric data to an app on your phone. Although unlikely, if someone happened to get into the details of your app, they'd be able to see all those charts and graphs of your body weight and what percentage of your body is fat. Oh, and news recently broke that Google is buying Fitbit. What does that mean? We don't know quite yet, but it does seem that all that sensitive data Fitbit collects will now be owned by Google, a company that likes to have as much data on people as possible.

Updates

A Google Fitbit means new possibilities and questions for the smartwatch
CNET
Google's Fitbit acquisition will lead to a new Google watch on the horizon. But will Fitbit users get their sensitive data pulled into a bigger ecosystem?
Google is buying Fitbit: now what?
The Verge
Google is buying Fitbit and the reasons why are both simple and complicated. It’s the kind of big acquisition Google has done before (more money than YouTube, less than Nest or DoubleClick), but this one seems to have struck a particular nerve. My Twitter replies are currently filled with Fitbit customers promising to go buy Apple Watches right now.
