With every beat the heart generates a wave that propagates along the arteries. The propagation speed of this wave is directly linked to the health of your arteries. Faster speeds indicate stiffer arteries, which increase the risk of developing hypertension or cardiovascular disease.
Improve your cardiovascular health
Each weigh-in will provide a pulse wave velocity reading and assessment within the Health Mate app. Taking age into account, the app will inform as to whether it is optimal or not, and provide tips to improve it. Whatever your fitness level, you will be able to clearly see how adopting small lifestyle changes — like a healthier diet and more activity — can have a big impact on improving the health of your arteries.
Data at your fingertips
Every weigh-in appears in the Health Mate app automatically, via WiFi or Bluetooth sync. With your weight, body composition, and heart health history available 24/7, you can see what works, reinforce positive behaviors and stay focused on the big picture.
At only 0.7 inches thick with a solid aluminum base, Body Cardio has no feet to adjust, making it the thinnest, most stable scale available. And while you might weigh less on the moon, it’s nice to get a highly-accurate weight anytime you are on earth — thanks to its design, Body Cardio works equally well on any surface, from a hard floor to a thick carpet.
More reasons to step on
When the scale is connected over WiFi, it will provide a daily local weather forecast to help you plan your outfit and the day’s activities.
And, if you use a Withings activity tracker or the app’s built-in tracker, the scale can display the previous day’s steps to help you see how your efforts impact what you see on the scale.
