Unboxing The Withings Smart Body Analyzer Scale
The Withings Wi-Fi Smart Scale comes in an easy to identify box that illustrates what the scale is capable of tracking but also how it can provide air quality and daily reporting functions as well.
On the back of the box, you’ll find every function the scale can track; Weight, Body Fat, Heart Rate, and Air Quality. It also states that it can display activity reports on the scale such as steps for the day and also that its multi-user capable (up to 8 different users). There is also a free App for iOS and Android that can be used, along with support for the Apple Watch.
The box was very easy to open, no zip-ties to break or other annoying things. Kudos to Withings for providing frustrating free packaging! The scale is wrapped by plastic to help protect it and there is also a cardboard insert to help protect the scale while in transport.
The scale comes in two colors, black or white. As for the weight of the scale it’s not overly heavy but definitely not light and flimsy. It seems very solid and durable from the initial feel of it. There are body fat analyzer strips that run underneath the scale. Some of the older body fat analyzer scales had metal pieces you must align your feet on in order to obtain a reader, but this Withings scale does not. It’s all very polished and looks cosmetically appealing.
On the bottom-side of the scale, you’ll find the feet which are ready for hard flooring, the battery door, and the buttons.
Batteries come pre-installed, yeah Withings! So there will be no need to go out and purchase batteries or even install any, if you had some. All you must do is pull the plastic strip hanging out of the battery door, so they can begin working.
There are two buttons underneath which I’m sure we’ll learn more about during the configuration part of the review.
As I stated earlier, the scale is ready to go on hard flooring like hardwoods or tile.
If you plan to utilize the scale on carpet, there are four rubber feet toppers that must be installed on the feet. Here’s what they look like installed;
