Innovative company Withings have announced the release of the Wireless Scale WS-30, the first in their new line of internet-connected bathroom scales. Combining Bluetooth and wifi connectivity to offer a seamless, PC-free experience from the very first use, the latest Withings technology provides users with an ultra-intuitive experience.

Trailblazers in the world of wellbeing, Withings develop gadgets to help people stay on track with their health goals. Having released the world’s first Wifi-enabled scale in 2009, this latest product takes that concept a step further, providing more simplicity, greater accuracy and a higher degree of flexibility for users.

Easy-to-use Technology and Tools

Once set up, the scale instantly recognises individual users and gives each user access to exclusive Withings services that help with weight management. Whether you want to keep the scales in your bathroom or plan to travel with them, WS-30 is portable and doesn’t even require a computer to use. When no wifi signal is available, you can record your results by connecting to your smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth.

Cédric Hutchings, Co-Founder of Withings, says: “With Wireless Scale, we have simplified even further the way people automatically assess how fit they are. Now anyone can enjoy the benefits of self-measurement in a really simple way without worrying about connectivity.”


Additional Features

As well as being able to recognize individual users, the scale’s Position Control™ technology provides smart, visual feedback that enables users to properly position themselves for greater accuracy in measurements. Using the app, you can store data about their weight and BMI, which you can then access from anywhere using the Withings Health Companion app. Motivation is the key when it comes to weight loss, and the app is packed with features that encourage goal setting and provide coaching services, you can use the app to generate weight graphs and map your success so far.

All this and more happens automatically as soon as you step on the scale. Graphs and tables are tracked in your personal account, saved for you to view at any time. With the ability to keep track of up to eight different profiles, the scales provide accurate measurements and mapping for the whole family. Each user can choose to keep their data private, or share it with others, such as doctors, coaches or accountability partners.
