Withings Body Composition Bluetooth Scale

Position ControlTM Technology

Getting an accurate weight measurement can be very difficult with any type of scale. The way you have your feet and body positioned can alter the reading significantly. To eliminate this issue, Withings has embedded Position ControlTM Technology in their Body Composition Scale. This technology will guide you through the process, by utilizing visual tools. As soon as you step on the scale, the display will light up and then on-screen arrows will appear. Just follow the arrows until you achieve the proper stance, so the scale can do the rest.

Supports Multiple Users

Withings Body will support up to 8 users. Each user will need to create a personal user account, by accessing the Health Mate app dashboard. This cannot be completed until the primary account holder makes each user “independent” and adds individual emails for each. Once your account is set up, you will simply step on the scale and it will automatically recognize you, using your weight readings. If your body weight is similar to another family member and Body has difficulty recognizing you. All you need to do is gently lean toward the side that displays the users’ names. You can then select your name from the list and let Body do the rest.


Body is compatible with most iOS and Android devices. In fact, your measurements will be sent directly to the Health Mate app downloaded on your device. It is also compatible with Apple Health, but you will need to use the Health Mate to extract and push the data to Apple Health. If you have any issues with this process, you can simply contact customer service for assistance.

Withings scales, wearables, and blood pressure monitors are all IFTTT, if this then that, compatible. This makes it possible to sync the data from your scale directly to Google Calendar, Twitter, Evernote, and Facebook. The IFTTT compatibility greatly enhances the overall functionality of the device and truly makes the usage possibilities endless.
