Wireless Scales can tweet user weight
Withings today announced the US availability of its next generation of Internet-connected bathroom scale. The Wireless Scale WS-30 brings Bluetooth Smart technology and Wi-Fi capability to the bathroom, allowing users to wirelessly beam vital information without having to connect to a computer directly. The Wireless Scale also includes on-screen visuals that will help users correctly position themselves for accurate weighing.
When a user steps on the scale, it displays their weight and body mass index on its backlit screen. After each weigh-in, the scale transmits the user's BMI and weight to the user's Withing's Health Companion App. Users can also send their information to a physician, Twitter feed, or one of over 60 other compatible applications.
The WS-30 is also capable of instantly recognizing eight individual users, giving each user a custom profile with privacy and sharing options. The new Wireless Scale WS-30 is available now from Withings for $130.
