Weighitz is a new smart-scale focused on being the ultimate tool to use just about anywhere- in the house, in your office, or abroad. This must-have packing list item is capable of extreme precision all the way to weighing large, bulky items up to 90 pounds.

The technology works by sycning to a blue-tooth enabled device to read and chart weights, and multiple Weighitz can combine together to weigh objects much larger than their individual load limit. All you have to do is find a suitable balancing item to place your weight on, be it a bowl, piece of plastic, a pillow, or whatever you like, and off you go.
You can even use the Weighitz to turn your suitcase into a smart scale! This is an interesting concept because as a traveller you never know when you’re going to need to check a weight on the fly. There is the most common use of weighing luggage, to making a meal in a hostel kitchen, or even on a random shopping trip when you need to measure the weight of something to see if it will fit in your suitcase for the trip home. The functionality could come in quite handy over the current tether-based scales that I’ve endured in my quest to pack it all in while traveling over the years.
Weighitz are also useful in the kitchen, they can be used a smart scale to weigh ingredients, and because they output their readings to an app, they can also track calories and help you with healthy recommendations for recipes.
