    Somewhat flawed

    • Written by from Ottawa

    I've been using this scale for about 3 months now; initially, I had a heck of a time pairing it with my iPad 4th-gen over Bluetooth. Took 4-5 tries, but once I was connected and the scale weighed me properly, I had few issues. The key is that you need to install the Withings free iOS App and select and synchronize the Scale. This will check if there's a Firmware update, and i've had two so far. Sensitivity was increased and tweaked, and it has become better with time. Likewise, if the Scale is not PERFECTLY level on the floor - either carpeted or laminated/tiled/hardwood - essentially, if all four feet aren't making contact on a level floor, you will have wildly different measured weights, and the scale won't associate your weight with your 'account', and then fail at Heart Rate, BMI, Fat%, etc. The Withings App is very good, and ties in to other paid and free Apps that track nutrition etc. But as with other reviews, unless you're standing perfectly perpendicular to the scale, the measured weight will flip-flop all over the place, as much as 5-10 pounds or kilograms, and you will lose patience fast. I've become used to it, and it's the only scale that goes up to shy of 400 lbs.

    I have 2 and I want to buy a third one

    • Written by from Lyon

    This is a perfect example of an internet connected object. Together with the Withings and RunKeeper apps this is the perfect tool to better control your health and quality of life.

    Don't put it on a carpet if you want reliable measurement this is common sense.

    Why 3 ? because I need one in each of the place I live in

    Awesome web-connected scale!

    • Written by from Highlands Ranch

    This scale works like a charm, both in the setup process and in daily use. After I paired it with my iPhone over bluetooth, the Withings app smoothly completed the rest of the initialization procedure by transmitting directly to the scale the wifi connectivity details already established on my iPhone - I didn't even have to enter my SSID/password at all! That was clever. Daily use has gone without a hitch as well; weight measurements were spot on, and the CO2/temp readings were very informative. Fat percentages varied somewhat, but that is understandable since it attempts to measure the impedance of the body.

    The Withings app is a pleasure to use. I love seeing graphs of my metrics over the course of time. The fact that all those numbers get wirelessly transmitted and stored online without needing any manual intervention is a beauty. This is automation done right.

    It's a great device but not that useful.

    • Written by from Halifax

    It's nice that it can measure the air quality and temperature but almost nobody needs those things. The most important job is measuring the weight that you can do it with a normal 10$ scale. But I really like the graphing because you can see the change in yourself.
    If you have enought money I would suggest it.

    Now Worth Money. Flawed.

    • Written by from Mequon

    I've had the Withings Smart Body Analyzer for a few months now, and I would say it's definitely not worth the money and is still not ready for prime time.

    If you stand on the scale three times in a row, you will get three different weights, which makes me question it's accuracy.

    The heart rate measurement only works 1 in 4 times. I would say on average I have to stand on the scale 2-4 times before I get a measurement, and they are all over the place.

    The scale only sends data to their app, so I end up having to manually enter it for the other two apps I use, which really defeats the purpose of having the thing.

    I wouldn't waste your money on this flawed product.

    Disappointment

    • Written by from Edmonton

    Interface for iphone, not hd, not easy to use but what is worse... Weight reading is quite inaccurate (can change +/- 0.5 kg between one measurement and the other and the measurement is abt 1 kg lower than the real value) and.... It does not work on the carpet, even if it is not particularly thick...i think it will go back to Apple....

    I wouldn't recommend this product

    • Written by from Coquitlam

    This scale definitely looks fancy enough to make your room a better environment but unfortunately this product's isn't worth the money. I ordered this product online and waited for so long to get it but when I tried to put it in my room (thin carpet floor), it didn't give me a right weight even with the carpet stands... so I brought it downstairs and it worked fine for the first and second week until yesterday. Me myself is a 88kg guy, and yesterday when I stepped on the scale, it gave me a weight of 84, second time 85 and third time 85. I tried my another normal scale and it gave me the right weight 88kg. I gave a few more try on the withing scale but it still gave me the wrong weight and the number was slowly increasing every time I stepped on it. I dunno what's wrong with it but I decided to return this product and hope my review helps to people who is considering this product. If you still want to buy it then I think just go ahead since apple provides a great after-sell service and you got nothing more than after-sell service to worry about.

    Great Scale!

    • Written by from Franklin

    This scale is fantastic! I understand $150 is A LOT for a scale, but this is well worth it if you are interested in finding a good way to track your health and/or weigh loss progress and love high tech gadgets. The Withings App is simple to use and keeps your data at your fingertips and allows easy sharing to your health practitioner of your choice. It's not for everyone, but if you want a high end scale that does it all this is my recommendation. We also have the Blood Pressure Monitor, and the Baby Monitor on an unrelated note, which is worth a look as well.

    Good tool to track your progress.

    • Written by from nepean

    If you're serious about your nutrition/fitness goals this scale is a great tool. The online weight and fat tracking graphs are great. The one negative I would say is that it's a bit expensive for what it is. But if you're serious about your goals this may be a good tool to have.

    Great analyzer

    • Written by from San Diego

    I ordered this before it came out so had a few issues that have been resolved by firmware updates already. (C02 was way off) The weight is accurate and easy. Like all scales that get body fat %/lean mass % is not accurate, however it is consistent making it useful. The heart rate monitor is cool. You can also add your heart rate manually via the app.

    The integration on line with other apps is great.
