I want to bring data from a scale (I can get a new scale if needed, but have a MyWeigh 8000) into my computer or my phone. I’m trying to track exactly what I add to recipes, so I need the ability to get the weight from the scale into the computer automatically.

Do any scales have computer or Bluetooth interfaces?

Thanks for the help.

I’m a software developer as well; my thought is to create a small application that I pick the ingredient, then when I’ve weighed it, hit a button that gets the weight from the scale and adds the weight to the total for that ingredient. This combines with knowing the WeightWatcher’s point value to let me just weigh the ingredients and easily calculate the point value of something that I cook at the time that I cook it. The hurdle here is talking to the scale and importing point values for common foods.

True. I sent an email to the people at MyWeigh asking their opinion.
