Research Finding

There are many body and food scales in the market. But none integrate all the data into a seamless interface. Having to enter data into different applications for each device is a barrier. User interfaces of health applications do not make the process fun and exciting.

​Product Design- Food Scale

Sleek Design

The Dux food scale was designed, giving attention to every tiny detail. Resembling a plate, it fits right in with the kitchen decor. It comes in many finishes like mahogany wood, ash wood, or a very elegant textured rubberized plastic.

Independent Timers

This feature was decide based on the interviews we conducted. Everyone needs timers while cooking, and the phone is not always around. The Dux Food scale comes with dedicated timers that can be operated independently of each other. To set a timer, just rotate the center dial and press the dial to start/pause.

Clean Interface

As the Dux food scale sends all the data to the mobile device, the interface on the scale is kept very simple and displays the item's weight.

Sleek New Design

The Dux body scale boasts a simplistic yet aesthetic design. The device has four stainless steel contact pads for measuring various physiological data points. The size of the pads affords the direction in which the scale is supposed to be used.

Numberless Display

We decided that we will not display the absolute value of a person's weight on the scale through numerous research inferences. This is linked to increased anxiety amongst the users. Instead we are going for a very subtle way of showing a person's progress in their weight loss journey. Green LED glow means you are getting closer to your goal and Red means you are going further from your goal.
