Bello's belly-fat scanner should inspire you to get on the treadmill (Jan 7, 2020 Engadget)

It analyzes how much fat you've got around your waist, and offers tips on how to get rid of it.

I tried Bello for myself at CES 2020, and the process is surprisingly fast: turn the device on, connect it to the app, and you're ready to go. Then you just press the device just above your belly button for three seconds, and then below it for the same amount of time. Inside, a pair of infra-red sensors are measuring the absorption and scatter of the light to work out how much fat you're carrying.

Unsurprisingly, I'm carrying too much timber, and the companion app told me that I'm on the border between "Bad" and "Worst." You then get a score out of 10 to reflect your general health (I was 5.4), but will get more accurate over time as it aggregates a number of fat measurements with your activity data. On a single charge, the device will run for 120 or-so-days, assuming you make one scan each day.

Bello is currently being crowdfunded on Indiegogo, with early backers getting 50 percent off the retail price of $379. Those who buy now will also get a free lifetime subscription to the app thrown in, whereas latecomers will need to spend on a regular subscription. The price may be a little higher than I'd like, but I can see how a daily fat scan would maybe help folks stay motivated, especially during diet season.
