The latest smart scale from Withings wants you to get a handle on your health, literally. The Body Scan, introduced at CES 2022 in Las Vegas on Monday, features a retractable handle fitted with additional sensors capable of far more analysis than the traditional smart scale. It’s slated to launching this spring.
Four weight sensors, 14 electrodes in the scale’s base, and an additional four electrodes in the handle allow the Body Scan to perform six-lead ECGs (electrocardiograms) and “segmental body composition analysis.” In plain English, the scale tells you exactly where your body stores fat.
Segmental body composition analysis is popular in the sports and fitness industries. It provides early warning of potential health problems and gives athletes and bodybuilders a better idea of what areas they should focus on during training.
