Withings Wi-Fi Body Scale Automatically Charts Your Progress

Withings Wi-Fi ScaleSome people use a favorite pair of jeans, others a tape measure. I’ve always been a fan of the scale as a means of monitoring my weight.

Withings Wi-Fi scale iPhone appWhen I was pregnant, I even kept a paper chart and pen inside the medicine cabinet to track my weight gain (hey, whatever works). That’s why I was intrigued by the Withings WiFi Body Scale. It tracks weight, lean and fat mass, and BMI (body mass index) and sends them to a secure web page or your iPhone.

The scale uses bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA) to calculate the weight of lean and fat mass instead of a percentage. So drinking a lot of water shouldn’t throw it off.

The 0.9-inch thick scale will automatically recognize and track up to 8 people. Recognition is initially based on the age, height and weight you input for each person, and then on the last weight and BMI readings.
