Withings announces best scale so far

Withings has just announced one of the best scales ever, at least in terms of price and specs. The new Body Smart Scale is now the entry-level scale that can measure body composition, visceral fat, basal metabolic rate, standing heart rate, BMI and, of course, weight. The scale is accurate to within 50g thanks to the four weight sensors. The scale can measure up to 180 kg and automatically detect and track up to 8 users.

Thanks to the bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) multifrequency, Body Smart is able to measure the percentage of body fat, total body water, muscle mass in kg or lb, bone mass in kg or lb, visceral fat index and basal metabolic rate, which will be introduced in a future update.

All data is displayed on a 2.8-inch colour display LCD (320 x 240 pixels). The scale connects to the cell phone and home network via Bluetooth and WiFi, and data can be tracked further via the Health Mate app.

Overall, the Withings Body Smart Scale is a great tool for anyone looking to improve their health and fitness. With its advanced features, compatibility with popular health and fitness apps, and user-friendly design, the €99.95 investment is well justified. Their Body Scan is their best product but it costs as much as a good smart watch or a phone.

However, I’d wait for the first reviews that will tell you how the scale works and if there are any issues that usually occur with newly released devices. For more details on the new Withings Body Smart check the official page.
