November 17th, 2012
I’ve known for the last couple of years that my home scale is a bit off, so I wonder if an expensive digital scale will do better. The idea of a smartphone-connected scale isn’t something new, but Withings new scale looks pretty spiffy and it’s supported by plenty of apps to help you keep track of your weight.
The Withings WS-30 Wireless Scale is thinner and $30 cheaper than than the original model. It also adds Bluetooth 4.0 in addition to 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, in order to track your weight and Body Mass Index (BMS) via the free Withings app – or you can shuttle data to the other 60+ fitness apps that support it. Each time you use it, it automatically syncs and uploads your data. It also automatically calibrates itself when you’re away, and offers position detection for highly-accurate measurement.
The Withings WS-30 sells for $129.95(USD) and will allow you to keep to a fitness or weight-loss program easily.
