Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Reports in sync with other Withings devices.
This scale offers more readings than most of the scales on our lineup, including weight, body fat, heart rate, body mass index, air quality and even the temperature.
You also can just connect the WS-50 to your iPhone or Android device using Bluetooth, handy if the room in which you place the scale doesn't get a Wi-Fi signal.
Withings’ Smart Body Analyzer WS-50 offers some tangible improvements to the Connected Scale while preserving its best prior features—an atypically nice industrial design and a multi-user wireless weight tracking system
The Withings Smart Body Analyzer WS-50 not only looks cool, it's accurate and will benefit anyone at any level.
The scale also monitors the air quality inside your home and provides the local weather report, which is useful if you're weighing yourself first thing in the morning.

What reviewers didn't like

The scale’s data display shows only once. If you want to see the weight again, you have to step on and off again.
There is no phone support for this product.
We wish, though, that the battery life gauge were not buried in the app. In order to see how much juice is left, you have to press the icon with the three lines at the top left, then Settings, scroll down to My Devices, select Withings Scales, then Associated Scales.
One issue from the Connected Scale has carried over to the Smart Body Analyzer and expanded somewhat with its new functionality—a disconnect of sorts between the scale’s attempts to be fully automated and actual ability to do so, absent sonic or on-screen prompting.
Our first real complaint, however, is that some reads can be a bit hit and miss. Heart rate, for example, won't always work. Neither will the air quality - assuming you can decipher what it's telling you about CO2 content.
