About


Everybody loves going on holiday. But the stress of having overweight baggage when you get to airport can get your holiday off to a nasty start. With excess baggage fees rocketing, that’s money out of you pocket that could have been spent on your holiday.

Unfortunately, luggage scales let you down. They give inaccurate results, break easily or require you to lift heavy bags in order to read the weight. Not to mention the repetitive process of zipping up and weighing your bag every time you add or remove something.

We also don't really think that the smart luggage of the future is versatile enough - not everyone wants to buy an expensive case that you are confined to using and then worry about breaking. These also don't get over the issue of having to lift your bag to weigh it.

If only you had a super smart luggage scale that could tell you how much your bag weighed...as you packed it.

Well we have just the thing.

Introducing Weigh-to-Fly, the smart extendable luggage scale that sends real-time weight updates to your phone, as you pack. 

Weigh-to-Fly adapts to all your existing cases, requires no heavy lifting and you don’t need to worry about your expensive tech-case arriving in pieces. And best of all, it tells you the weight your bag automatically as you change the contents. 

Weigh-to-Fly will help make your check-in experience less stressful by avoiding embarrassing excess bagagge costs and reducing your queuing time. The experience is also improved for the airport staff, by reducing the likelihood of having to confront the customer at check-in desk.

Weigh-to-Fly is Patent Pending. 

 Extendable Scale 

Weigh-to-Fly has an adjustable telescopic frame, which slides and locks to fit whichever case you want to take. Just unclip, slide the poles out as far as you need them and place your case on top. The sensors are in the four corners, so make sure your case is securely on the points and on a flat surface, such as a table or the floor. 

The App

The easy to use App displays the weight as you put items in (or take them out). When you first install the App, it takes you through a tutorial on setting up your Weigh-to-Fly and how to successfully weigh your case.

The App can be customised to different Airlines, allowing you to input whoever you are travelling with and the type of ticket you have - it then calculates the weight limit so you don't have to. The app also remembers previous settings, making it even easier next time you use it. 

The App works on both Android and Apple devices - and you can even run it on your Apple Watch.

Proximity Sensor 

Have you ever left your luggage behind? Or have you ever had it stolen? Well this feature is for you. Weigh-to-Fly has a built in proximity sensor so that if you leave your case behind, an alert is sent to your phone to remind you. 

Compact Hanger Design 

Weigh-to-Fly is compact and light, making it ideal to take with you wherever you go. It even includes its own weight in the calculation, meaning you can just pop it in when you are done packing. 

 It also doubles up as hanger, making for crease-free clothes and easy storage. You can fold jackets around the arms or trousers though the middle bar, keeping your packing neat and tidy.

 Dimensions: 

Weight: Weigh-to-Fly is approximately 450g.  But remember - it includes its own weight when you are packing, so you won't be tipped over the limit when you take it with you. Maximum bag weight 40kg. 

Batteries: Weigh-to-Fly uses rechargeable Lithium Polymer batteries. It can be charged by plugging in a Mini USB charger. These batteries are accepted on flights and fit in with the guidelines of both the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the The Transportation Security Administration (TSA). 

The Batteries have an expected life of 5 hours. 

Bluetooth 4.0: The sensors use low energy Bluetooth 4.0 to talk to the App. The App is compatible with IOS, Android and Apple watch.

Proximity Sensor: The proximity sensor is activated once you are over 5m from your luggage. 

With the average charge on excess baggage sitting at £42 why not get your Weigh-To-Fly now and avoid those nasty charges in the future!
