NutriBullet Balance blender shows you what's really in your smoothiesNutriBullet's newest blender will use Bluetooth and a built-in scale to help you build smoothies, soups and dips.
[MUSIC] NutriBullet has launched a new Bluetooth-connected blender, called the NutriBullet Balance, that will help track the nutrients of your smoothies and guide you step-by-step through recipes. Here's how the Balance works. You find a recipe on the iOS and Android-compatible NutriBullet Balance app. You place the blending cup on the blender and begin to add ingredients per the app's instructions. The blender measures the weight of your ingredients as you add them to the cup and sends that info to the app. Once you hit the right amount of an ingredient, the app dings and tells you to move on to the next step. You can also press the button on the Balance to move forward to the next step on your own. Nutribullet teamed up with the smart scale-maker called the Perfect Company to create the Balance. The Perfect Company has also worked with Vitamix to create a smart scale designed specifically for the premium blender brand. The Nutribullet Balance Blender costs $180 and it's available for pre-order For now. It will start to ship in early November. [MUSIC]
