@WyzeGwendolyn I can’t weight to take my weight on an accurate Wyze Scale. … at least that’s what my doctor and wife say.
Hopefully this scale has Apple Health and Google Health (or whatever they call their app) integration.
My current smart scale has integration with these apps and it will calculate my BMI, muscle mass, fat mass, bone mass, and water weight. It also supports 8 users. It transmits all this information to each user’s phone via Bluetooth. I paid $50 for it three years ago.
We’ll give more information about this during the Wyzies tomorrow. I can honestly say that I really enjoy my scale and I never thought I would ever say that about such a product!
I definitely think so!
Can we make our smart devices punish us if we don’t hit a target weight? Smart Plug refuses to turn the TV on? Bulbs force us to live in total darkness?
That might be an added feature later on.
I for one am looking forward to the scale. Thanks Wyze for expanding into other aspects of this high tech world we live in.
You’re welcome! We are happy to hear it.
Are there plans to make it compatible with Apple’s HomeKit? It would be great to have the data go straight into the iOS Health app.
It doesn’t need to be Homekit compatible in order for the App to use Healthkit. They are different APIs.
Will it have a Wyze Cam included? (Just kidding)
How sensitive will the Wyze Scales be? Could you use it for weighing cooking ingredients or meals for your diet for example? And then in the app it could calculate the calories and exercise requirements to burn that off.
Maybe this needs a separate set of smart scales specifically for the kitchen.
Verbal compliments like “Keep up the good work” or “Wyze supports your weight challenge”.
Will the Scales be purely about weighing, and NOT about the requirements for losing weight? As you will have to be sensitive in this respect, as not everyone needs to lose weight, as some people after surgery, are suffering from Anorexia nervosa or another illness need to gain weight.
I believe the scale is based on this hardware, so I assume the specs will be similar, if not identical.
Precision is definitely for a bathroom scale, not a kitchen scale. It can apparently track BMI, although I’m not sure exactly how that feature works.
BMI is a simple calculation based on individual height and weight. Should be easy enough for any app or chip to figure out.
My current smart scale tracks muscle, fat, bone, and water mass using bioelectrical impedance analysis.
Oh, I see. I just Googled it. I guess I was conflating BMI with body fat percentage, which isn’t the same. Body fat percentage would be tougher for a scale to measure precisely. Probably pretty impossible unless it has some kinda magic tech. Haha.
There are scales out there that do body fat percentage, I believe it’s done by sending a small electrical current through the body and measuring resistance
Cool! Sounds like magic tech to me. Haha
