For those of us trying to lose weight, you all know what a long and painful process it can be. Critical to the process is the recording and tracking of your weight over time in order check progress and determine whether your methods are proving successful. Enter the Withings WiFi Body Scale. Gone are the days of scribbling your progress on a sticky note – this set of scales can record, track and even publish to your friends (although of course this is optional!) your weight and all you have to do is stand on the thing.

“The ideal gift for that New Year fitness regime.”
Stuff Magazine – Nov ’10




First, let’s start with the looks. A department in which the Withings scales certainly don’t fall down. The sleek hunk of black tempered glass and aluminium combination is glorious and wouldn’t look out of place on the shelves of an Apple store. Which is convenient given how well the scales integrate with iPhones, iPads, Macs and PCs alike. The 2.4″ x 1.6″ display shows your weight in your choice of kilograms, pounds or stones (and pounds) up to a maximum of 180kg (396lbs).

Not only does scale measure your weight, but through biometric impedance analysis, it can accurately measure body fat as well. But now the best part. Upon standing on the scale, your measurements are instantly beamed to your very own private custom webpage that tracks and displays your progress. The data can be viewed in a graph or a tabular arrangement allowing you to easily gauge whether your hard work is paying off, or if you need to up your game. You can even check progress on an iPhone or iPad using the dedicated (free) Withings apps which display your data both logically and aesthetically.

If you’re the daring type, you can also automatically share your data on Twitter, Facebook or by email adding that little extra pressure to keep working at the gym. See how it help this man shed over a quarter of his bodyweight! Alternatively, if you’re a member of online fitness programmes like Weightbot, Fitburn or Google health, you can automatically sync your measurements with these, increasing your ability to meet those weight loss goals.

Another clever feature of this WiFi scale is that it can tell the difference between up to 8 different family members using previously recorded data, and send the data to each appropriate webpage.

“The best bit is that this all happens automatically. The scales can even recognise up to eight different family members by the their personal weight profiles”
The Scotsman – Oct ’10
