You may have heard or seen a lot of stuff to do with the Withings Wireless Scales so far, which allow you to check you weight and keep track of it via applications and your Internet Browser, which is all done without the need of a PC or cable, as the system can connect to your devices via your already installed Internet Connection and Bluetooth capabilities.
So what new in the updated versions of the wireless scale? Well for starters it features the latest Withings technology for a better all round experience, alongside the ability to recognise individual users and automatically add the data to their profile and not someone else, which is great if you have a family of weight watchers (as long as there’s only 8 of you).
Alongside that the updated scales also work with the new Withings Health Companion app, which lets you keep track of your weigh-ins whilst on the move, alongside it the device also features enhanced Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, and a new feature Position Control technology, which allows you device to provide “visual feedback for users to properly position themselves for high-accuracy weighing”.
The new Withings scale will launch this September for €119.95, until then you can check out the press release below for the full details.
