Finally, a much-wanted and, frankly, a much-overdue feature is just about to hit your current Garmin Index Smart Scale.
It’s nothing too fancy, you can now properly record more than one weights per day. Ta-Da.
Note: The current firmware is unchanged at v3.10 but the new functionality for the Index Scale is enabled IN the Connect app. Just make sure the app is up-to-date and all should be good.
As the image implies this might be handier than you think for athletes. Bearing in mind that, apart from the obvious expulsions from the body, your essential bodyweight doesn’t change too much during the day. Thus changes in your weight might be quite closely linked to sweat and hence your hydration status. As an athlete, you want to stay well-hydrated.
Should you rush out and buy a Garmin Index Scale?
- Well, you’re probably in lockdown right now so please don’t rush out anywhere for a relatively needless purchase.
- As we found in the leaks last year an Index Scale 2 is slated for release and my guess is that the probabilities of this year are much more likely than next year. I’m going to buy one of those, so hurry up please Mr Garmin.
