bought this one directly from Amazon and so far I am pretty impressed.
Setup is easy, used my smartphone with bluetooth and Withings app to configure Wifi, did not have any problem with the setup, pretty user friendly. You need to create a Withings account directly in app or on their website.
User profiles allows the scale to automatically detect who is using the scale and if users are about the same weight you can easily select the profile during the weigh-in.
Weight capture and BMI is pretty quick (1-2 secs), body fat is about 2 seconds longer and heart rate is another 5 seconds so you need to stay about 10 seconds on the scale to measure everything, not bad.
The scale also measures CO2 levels and temperature every time you weigh-in and every 30 min.
It will only upload data when you weigh-in or once a day so don’t expect to monitor your bedroom temperature/CO2 levels live when you our outside your home, it will only update once a day.
I successfully connected my account with runkeeper so I can track my running, you can connect to other dozens of web-services like MyfitnessPal, I would love to connect to Garmin Connect but this might be an issue on Garmin’s side more than on Withings’.
What needs more testing: battery life, software update/upgrades, third-party compatibilities.
Overall, it satisfies my geeky person, I’ll post an update if some issues come up.
UPDATE 04/24/2014: After about a year of usage the scale is still going strong, changed the batteries twice so that’s about 5-6 months per set as I said in my last update. Withings also finally enabled the button on the top of the scale. With a simple touch you can get the CO2 level and temperature without having to weight yourself. This feature, although not absolutely necessary was advertised in the presentation video before the product came out.It was about time. Overall still happy!
UPDATE 09/06/2013: Just a quick update to say that my batteries have run out this week. So it lasted about 5 months of daily use. Note that the scale still had enough juice to capture weight and body fat but not enough to upload the result and CO2 levels.
UPDATE 08/07/2013: Withings has updated their site. It’s much nicer now and you can finally view all the data the scale captures (including temperature and C02 levels)
UPDATE 04/26/2013 : Small edit concerning customer service, I asked a couple question via the Withings website and got answered very quickly, quite pleased. They are apparently going to update their web site “in a few weeks” so that we can see the CO2, temperature and heart rate data.Looking forward to that.
