Yes, it does the smart scale “basics” like weight, heart rate, body fat and water percentage, and bone mass, but the Withings Body+ SmartScale takes all of that to the next level. In addition to the aforementioned features, this very sharp-looking piece of tech shows weight trends—which, as we should all know by now is more important than the absolute number—and links all of that data via WiFi to the Withings app or to Apple Health.

The beauty behind the Withings Body+ SmartScale’s connectivity features is that you don’t have to interpret your data early in the morning when you’re all foggy eyed, but rather the stats are compiled, saved, and can be analyzed automatically for whenever you’re ready to face them. Also, any hardcore Zwift adherents can sync this info up to their Zwift profile for constant weight/power ratio adjustments.
