Yeah, I'm kind of surprised this isn't a feature.
However, If they add this feature, I really hope it is optional. One of the things I loved about Up (as compared to something like bodybugg or maybe even fitbit) is that it doesn't have a strong focus on Calories and weight, but instead focuses more on a generally healthy lifestyle. To me, that gives it a broader appeal because it can be used by everyone. Even if weight loss isn't one of your goals, it still retains it's appeal. (I'm one of those people who can get obsessed with weight in an unhealthy way, so staying away from that kind of stuff is better for me.)
I do like the scale integration idea, though, for those who want it. It would be neat if it could sync online data from a wireless scale.
Today I purchased the fitbit scale. We really like the UP band, when will products like the fitbit scale or withins scale be able to inegrate with the UP band, if Jawbone doesn't have interest in developing a scale like devise of their own to be used with the UP band, it would be really nice to have the ability to work with other devices.
