At CES Unveiled, Jamie Davis, the Podmedic got a chance to talk to the folks at Withings about their Smart Body Analyzer scale. According to Alexis it’s not just your ordinary bathroom scale.
This new home scale was awarded a CES 2013 Innovations Award. This scale measures not just your weight, BMI and body fat but also your heart rate and home air quality (carbon dioxide levels) and temperature. The device also connects wirelessly via WiFi or Bluetooth with an app on your mobile device to track all the data.
Home Air Quality Monitoring
Because it monitors air quality in your home, Alexis at Withings recommends you place the scale in your bedroom so you can test the carbon dioxide levels and temperature in your room while you sleep. With today’s homes sealed tight against the weather, it’s important to make sure you can vent air to the outside often enough to ensure high enough oxygen to carbon dioxide levels.
The Withings Smart Body Analyzer will be available for purchase by the end of March and is expected to be priced at $149.00
