Withings Body Cardio review: stylish scales for health obsessives
It replaces the Withings Smart Body Analyzer, which could calculate fat mass as well as measure weight, and adds a new reading to the scale – Pulse wave velocity. PWV measures the speed that vibrations from your heartbeat travel along your arteries and provides an indicator of the stiffness of arteries and of cardiac health.
The beauty of scales as a health monitoring device is that they’re simple. The Body Cardio doesn’t break with tradition. It like any other, with a small screen for a read out, but a bit more hi-tech.
