Bagel Labs PIE Smart Body Tape Measure

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2018-05-29

Monitor your body size in a healthy way with the Bagel Labs PIE Smart Body Tape Measure. Designed to improve your health and fitness, this device focuses on your body size instead of the numbers on the scale. Unlike scales, PIE can tell you where your visceral fat storage is by measuring your waist circumference. To use this smart tape measure, start by wrapping the retractable tape around any body part. Then fasten the tape tip to the hook and adjust the tightness by scrolling its gear. Press save and send your measurements to the app on your smartphone with just one click. PIE syncs your size measurements with the app, making it easy to set goals and monitor different body parts. To get the most out of PIE, it’s best to measure yourself once every few weeks at the same time of day. PIE also offers very accurate results, with no room for error larger than 1/31 inches.

Yes, providing a way for users to download their data is a part of our contingency plan for any unexpected turn of events that leads to us shutting down. If that happens, which we hope is never the case, we will also modify the app to save your data on your phone.

Great to know. Could you plan a way to download our infos if for whatever reason you would ever close the servers down? Wouldn’t want to lose this 🙂

Great questions. Saved measurements are encrypted and stored in the cloud (currently Google Firebase) and not the app itself. Also, you will be able to go back to any period in time to see all of your saved measurements. Hope that helps!

Well I did wonder where that data would be stored? On the cloud? Only on the app? Also, how far back will we be able to see?

Hi! Thanks for asking. Both iOS and Android versions of the app will be released in early July before your PIE is shipped. We've finished developing all the core features including receiving/saving/plotting the measurements, setting goals, and adding new members. Remaining tasks are: adding measuring tips and improving the user interface. If you have a specific feature that you'd like to see on the current version of the app, please let us know and we'll upload a video in our weekly update on Thursday.

Thank you for your support. It really means a lot to us. We'll keep doing our best to deliver quality rewards on time and become every backers' favorite Kickstarter project. @Véronique Janelle
Thank you for a great question. We took a close look at the CRON-O-Meter app and it seems like they don't provide APIs that we can integrate into our app. In this case, they will have to use our API in their app to let you link your CRON-O-Meter account with PIE, like they did with Fitbit, Nokia, Garmin, Polar, and Strava. We'll have them on our to-do list of 3rd party app integration and contact them once our API is ready at the end of the year.

Any plan to make the pie compatible with the chronometer app?

Just further commenting after reading other comments. Guys please make sure this product works! Your next crowd funding and general sales will go much better if it does.

Review from Kickstarter
To those out there thinking of backing, you are getting a lot for the price in my opinion if you think about the electronics and software development. Also, if this project manages to deliver in July, or even August, after a funding round in June then this may we’ll win the award of best run Kickstarter project ever. Best of luck! Looking forward to my body tap measure!

@Terry Fogarty,
We understand your concern. Guaranteeing accuracy is crucial for any measuring device. We've spent most of our last two years developing algorithms and testing with various hardware designs to make PIEs deliver perfect measurements at any condition. We are sure that all measurements will be within 1mm(1/32 in), and this error range is being trimmed even more as we speak. Please take a look at one of our accuracy test videos on the campaign page and let us know if you have any specific tests that you'd like us to shoot and upload. Thanks.

Review from Kickstarter
I am out, too many problems with the last project and many people trying to get their money back. Good luck. If it is a quality product that is accurate, as it should be, I will buy later.

@Peter Holdstock,
If you are using iOS, our app does work with VoiceOver. We've checked to confirm that all text and measurements can be read out by iPhones, and have just a few buttons that we will have to carefully label. If you are using an Android phone, we will message you once we have the results!

Review from Kickstarter
Hi. I'm a backer of the previous version, bagel. I am also an architect who often goes out into the field to take measurements of existing conditions. Accuracy is super important. If you are off by the slightest amount, it can be a disaster. The bagel was wildly inaccurate. I say wildly because the laser was missing the mark by a few feet. The tape measure was off by 7 inches and the wheel didn't work properly. I cannot and my clients cannot afford my drawings to be inaccurate. Inaccuracies lead to additional expenses, dangerous and/or unusable spaces as well as lawsuits. A measuring device is a super important tool and if the company cannot produce one that functions properly, they should seek another venture. This is a warning to all the backers. Don't blindly trust this product. I will never support this company again as it could have gotten me into some serious trouble. Good luck to everyone and hopefully this product turns out better. Unfortunately, I don't want to be a part of it.
Peter Holdstock
Review from Kickstarter
Thanks. I’m more bothered about the app being accessible than the device itself as I assume if I can access the app I will be able to get the measurements. In most cases it’s easier to make an app accessible from the outset that it is to modify it afterwards and any good developer should make their apps accessible anyway.

Another backer of the original Bagel here, just taking the time to warn others that it was probably the worst of the 30+ kickstart products I’ve ever backed. Steer clear of this one! Peace out

@Winter Schatz
Happy to hear that you are interested in the PIE.
Appreciate your trusting Bagel Labs.
In response to your inquiry, we don’t make a left-handed version yet, but we will look into it with our team members.
We will try and keep you updated once we have additional information to share. Thank you! @Peter Holdstock
Thank you for backing us.
We haven’t decided it yet, but we will consider adding the feature to the PIE.
We will post it on updates once this feature is added. Please stay tuned!
Thanks! @Bill the Raven, @Paulo Briski Campos, @Manny M
We’re sincerely sorry for disappointing you.
We are always devoted to review and improve our product to ensure we satisfy our customers in the best possible way, so we're very sorry to hear that you're not happy with the previous Bagel and we would like to resolve this as soon as we can.

If you would like to receive the proper response immediately, please send email to support@bagel-labs.com, and we will help you right away. Thank you. @James Candelo
Again, we apologize for your disappointment. We just sent you a Kickstarter message.
Please check the message and response it. Thank you!

I’m blind Will the app work with voice-over, the built-in screen reader on Apple devices? I’m hoping so as I already backed the project.
James Candelo
Review from Kickstarter
Sorry... was....
@Winter Schatz
Just be careful.... that's all....
I wish I was the only one worried about it, and that I was the only one with bad luck.... but I'm not
Even more I wish I was happy with the previous project.... if that was the case I would support them every single time or project as I have done it several times with Ugears or Mipow (creators).
But unfortunately this is not the case.... @creator. With all do respect.... You could actually have done a lot better with us.... I understand the difficulties related to new products because I had to start from scratch with my company... but at the end you guys left us alone in the dark even after writting you tickets and mails.... and I believed in you.... to know at the end that you didn't care about me or other backers.... that's what hurts me the most.
James Candelo
Review from Kickstarter
@Andrew Schatz totally understand your point.... now... is it really gonna do that? because I did see a WONDERFUL and BEAUTIFUL video in the first project.... ohh my god!!!! exactly what I needed!!!! BUT.... at the end..... well..... shame on me!

Review from Kickstarter
Hey folks. I just wanted to point out why I supported this project. I do appreciate the advertised use for fitness. But I have my own interest in mind. I'm going to be using this to track my transition, and how HRT changes my body. This way I can easily measure fat redistribution and visualize the changes easily in addition to the actual uses. I just wanted to thank y'all for adding in the custom body parts and custom goals to this product, they're the reason I'm here. Glad you're making all the features and accessibility to empower folks whether or not it was a planned use or the product. Can't wait to get started!!!! Minor request if possible: is there a way to make a left-handed version? I already have a "right to left read" tape measure, it would be cool if the PIE could be as well :) Thanks again!!!!!

Review from Kickstarter
@Bagel You're a robot who said the same things about accuracy and consistency in your first campaign. Of course you're going to promise the same here. My point and the point of many others is that there's evidence you can't back that up. In short though, i couldn't care about a response from you. My comment here isn't for you. I've come to terms with the loss of my investment. This is kickstarter after all. It's just a buyer beware warning for other uninformed consumers out there.

Hello Everyone.
Back again after being deleted.
PLEASE, DO read about the previous project from this creator.
BROWSE in the comments section.
AFTER that you can decide if you want to continue. I have pledged in a lot of projects and we as backers are the only ones that can protect each other. PLEASE just read, and not just about this creator... ALWAYS read as much as you can in all the projects you pledge.

@Florian Weiss, @Collette,
Thank you for a great question. Yes, you can add up to 100 members on a single account to add measurements, set goals, and track progress for each member on your list. We've uploaded some example images for you on our FAQ page here: https://bit.ly/2GRhY1i.
We also have plans to launch a software development kit by the end of the year, with which other developers will be able to create customized apps or embed PIE's functions to other apps for more specific needs.
Hope that answers your question!
Bob

Review from Kickstarter
I agree with Florian. I am a personal trainer and measure many clients on a regular basis. The ability to add profiles or link pie to multiple accounts would be extraordinary. I backed for a single one but I work at a big gym and if it works well and there is the ability to do multiple profiles then I know other trainers I work with will be interested.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi, i want to ask if there will be the possibility to create more than one account on one smartphone. My wife sews as a hobby and it would be perfect to store the body measurements of others in the app.
I know that thesis not the main purpose of this tape but it would be a nice bonus.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. We are truly thankful to all of our backers that have helped us come this far. We've read all of your comments and have improved upon your feedback. We are happy to provide evidence that this new version provides consistent and accurate measurements, and will upload more test videos such as this one: https://youtu.be/2pEeNs9hc0w.
Please let us know if you have any specific test environments you wish to see PIE in and we'll share more test videos accordingly.

Review from Kickstarter
I was a backer of the first project BAGEL Smart Measuring Tape which was one the worst Kickstarter projects I backed. I would have rather that the project creators would have been upfront and honest about the inaccuracy of their "smart" tape measure; you know, a tool that you are using to avoid approximations in the first place, and offered backers a refund, even if only a partial refund, instead of receiving a useless paperweight that sits on my shelf as a reminder about failed ambitions. My advice to anyone considering backing this project is to save your money and buy a five-pack of $1 retractable measuring tapes and leave them around your house. They'll work all the time and give you consistent accuracy, will never have a dead battery, and when it breaks you can simply toss it in the trash and use the next one. If the creator wants to change our mind about backing them on this new project, they are welcome to provide evidence that this new version provides consistent and accurate measurements and short of that, I wouldn't expect a tape measure that gives you anything better than an approximation that can be off by a couple of cm or mm for any given reading.

Review from Kickstarter
Pledge $1 just to complain about the quality of their last product Bagel, it's horrible, it wasn't accurate. I wouldn't back this project unless you want to be disappointed.
MaryJane
Review from Kickstarter
i don't understand why so many complaints. I'm using Bagel still and it works fine.
Manny M
Review from Kickstarter
I'm echoing the sentiments of others here that are backers of the first campaign and also backers of many other projects... ... this is the worst tech I've backed and was a huge regret. It all sounded amazing, just like this campaign no doubt does... but honestly, save your money for a product that will hit the market that is tried and tested. Don't take the gamble on what will be an amateur product that looks the part but doesn't work like described and very quickly becomes an expensive paperweight. I'll also warn you against digital tape measures of this kind in general as they have some practical hurdles you won't think of, and unless you're using them every day or are constantly keeping them charged, they'll be dead when you need them most. My bagel tape measure is grossly inaccurate and was a total waste of money. Please, I implore you to save yours.
Moeen
Review from Kickstarter
Backed $1 just to warn others not to pledge. I bought a 4-pack of bagels- opened one and didn't bother with the rest. Gave that one away to somebody, who then threw it away because it was useless. Bought the 4-pack as gifts- was too embarrassed to give them to anybody. Emailed offering to return opened units at my expense for a refund, but was declined. I'm an experienced backer, and I have only come across a few worse run campaigns that made this much money. I know what was promised, and am not complaining about the sonar not working because I misunderstood and thought I was getting a laser measure. It is just genuinely an unfit for purpose product. Avoid. Seriously.

Review from Kickstarter
This company's last product is in my top 3 of worst Kickstarters:
A) No testing, it had a lot of bug that would have been obvious very early on
B) Not admitting any guilt or saying sorry.
C) An extremely expensive product that does not work for measuring.
D) No refunds.
I have an unpacked one (I bought two)
As this company kept insisting nothing was wrong, there was no refund. I would advise you to look at their last campaign.
Be very careful!
They also claimed that there were no issues the first time. Top 3 worst Kickstarter product, out of the 500 that I have backed. If they admit having made an unusable product full of errors they should offer to ship this working product to those who have already paid, but received no working product.
(Other ethical Kickstarters have done that)
