Withings Smart Body Analyzer: measures weight, body fat, BMI and heart rate

The Withings Smart Body Analyzer is the next iteration of the original Withings Body Scale.

There are three main differences between these two Internet connected weight scales: the Withings Smart Body Analyzer offers a heart rate monitor, Bluetooth Smart syncing, and air quality monitoring (temperature and carbon dioxide) – see Withings Smart Body Analyzer press release.

A world first for tracking weight, heart rate and environment in a single device earned Withings Smart Body Analyzer a CES 2013 Award for Innovation.

The WiFi enabled weight scale integrates seamlessly with the Withings Health Mate app (iOS and Android), which acts as a hub for your connected body tracking devices, including Withings’ own Smart Activity TrackerScales and Blood Pressure Monitor, as well as others like BodyMedia activity tracker and Zeo sleep tracker.

  1. Hello Sahar,I have a client that I’ve been wriokng with who has been struggling to lose fat. She just got one of these this week. She is loving the feedback that she gets from it and said it is quite an eye opener seeing the figures at the end of the day. Hopefully this will be a helpful tool to get her to her goals! It’s reassuring to hear good words about it from you.If my client has success from wearing it I’ll be recommending it to others having difficulty losing the extra fat pounds Aaron recently posted..
