For a few years, the Nintendo Wii game console was incredibly popular selling out all across the nation. The same thing happened with one of the accessories for the Nintendo Wii game console, the Wii Fit Balance Board. Today, the popularity of the Nintendo Wii has reduced significantly meaning that all around the country there are a bunch of Wii Fit Balance Boards going unused.

A new application has turned up for Android device users called FitScales that will allow you to use that Nintendo Balance Board with your Android smartphone or tablet. The application allows you to synchronize the Balance Board using Bluetooth to your Android device. Once you have the app installed and the Balance Board connected, you can use it as a highly accurate scale.

The application also allows users to pass data from the FitScales app to other Android health applications such as Fitbit and RunKeeper. The process of pairing your Android device and the application to the Balance Board promises to be very easy. All you need to do is install and launch the app, select your height for BMI measurements, and connect your preferred services.

Then you press the red button to synchronize the Balance Board and wait until it's calibrated. After that you're done and ready to weigh yourself. The application is available on the Google Play store right now at no cost.
