Withings releases Smart Body Analyzer
Withings has launched Smart Body Analyzer, a "smart" scale capable of measuring heart rate and air quality, as well as traditional weight measurements and body composition for up to eight users.
It provides users with a health snapshot providing an overview of data: weight, fat mass percentage and heart rate. In addition to users’ physical data, Smart Body Analyzer also measures the air quality of its surrounding environment through temperature and carbon dioxide monitoring.
The Smart Body Analyzer can be set up with just a few taps from a smartphone or tablet (iOS or Android). Then, users just need to weigh themselves for the data to be automatically sent to the free Withings Health Mate application, which provides a detailed history of past weigh-ins.
Within the app, users can see the weight, BMI (Body Mass Index), fat mass, and heart rate recommended values for each user based on health professionals and the World Health Organization (WHO). Data is accessible from whichever device the user chooses (iPhone, Android phone, tablet or computer). Each user has their own account protected by a password, so that all data stays personal and confidential.
The Smart Body Analyzer is available at a recommended retail price of US$149.95 from withings.com .
