The World’s Smartest Measuring Tape : Bagel

We all measure size in our daily lives. Whether it’s for a DIY home improvement project or for measuring body size, everyone uses a tape measure. 

Despite the various uses for a tape measure, the way we measure size has remained the same for more than a century. It’s about time that we stop trying so hard to read tiny numbers and markings on tape measures.

Bagel is the only tape measure you will ever need. With three different measuring modes, Bagel lets you measure just about anything. 

It can also save measurements, record voice memos, and send data to its mobile app, where you can easily organize and analyze your measurements. That’s why Bagel is nick named as a smarttape measure.

Ease of Use

Bagel is easy to use. Select one mode from three different measuring modes, take a measurement, then click the save button to save your data.

You can also choose to add a voice memo that describes what you measured. As soon as you connect Bagel to its mobile app, this voice recording will be automatically converted into text and tagged to your measurement. 

You can use Bagel’s string mode to measure length like you would with a traditional tape measure. Its flexible yet strong string allows you to easily measure curved objects and surfaces, various body types, and- needless to say- flat surfaces. Bagel’s string mode can measure up to about 10 feet (3 meters).

String mode helps you to measure length like a traditional tape measure. Its flexible yet strong string allows you to easily measure curved objects and surfaces, various body types, and- needless to say- flat surfaces. Bagel’s string mode can measure up to about 10 feet (3 meters).

Wheel mode is great when you don’t have both hands available to measure length or distance. Just switch to Bagel’s wheel mode and roll its wheel. Wheel mode is perfect for measuring distance on curved surfaces and can measure up to about 33 feet (10 meters).

Remote mode helps you measure the distance of areas that are far away or hard to reach . Simply point the ultrasonic sensor at objects, walls, or ceilings and Bagel will tell you how far away they are. The remote mode automatically activates a laser that points at your target spot to indicate where you are measuring. You can measure up to 16 feet 4 inches (5 meters) in remote mode.

Save Data and Voice Memos

After taking your measurement, save the data with just a click of a button. You can also choose to record a voice memo that describes what you just measured. Never experience the hassle of going back and forth between your notepad and tape measure !

Bluetooth Connectivity

You can connect Bagel to your smartphone via Bluetooth and transfer all of your measurements to Bagel’s mobile app.

You can browse through your measurements, all of which are tagged with a voice memo. Additionally, take advantage of the app’s ability to export your data as CSV to use on your computer.

If you want to track your body size, simply open up a graph that will display how your measurements have changed over time.

Both iOS and Android versions of the mobile app will be available for free.

You don’t have to connect Bagel to your smartphone every time you want to take a look at past measurements. Bagel has internal memory that can save up to 100 measurements and voice memos. You can easily bring up all of your logs on its digital display.

Bagel comes with built-in lithium polymer battery that lasts up to 24 hours and averages 8 hours with constant use. Any micro USB cable lying around the house is fit to charge Bagel.

Whether you use inches or centimeters to measure size, Bagel will adapt to meet your needs. On Bagel’s mobile app, you can even choose to display your measurements in feet or meters.
