If you’re trying to manage your weight, Withings has the device that will tip the scales in your favor. This is our Product Review and Buyer’s Guide for the Withings Body Cardio smart scale.
This smart scale is easy to use. Charge it up, pair it with the Health Mate app, and step on. It measures weight, BMI, muscle and bone mass, and standing heart rate. Your data is tracked on the app, so you can be coached to your health goals.
What makes this scale different than other smart scales is it monitors heart health. It uses a clinically tested measurement known as Pulse Wave Velocity to track how long it takes blood to circulate from your heart to your feet. A faster PWV can mean high blood pressure, stiff arteries or a risk of hypertension. You won’t see your PWV until your sixth weigh-in. And standing in the exact spot for measurement has given some early users difficulty. But, the results are accurate.
The scale is available from Withings for $179.95. It’s a lot of money to invest in a scale, but it provides a comprehensive health overview. And you can accurately monitor your heart’s health between doctor’s appointments. The Withings Body Cardio smart scale is easy to setup and use, making it great for knowing how healthy your body really is.
