Pros and Cons of the Withings Smart Body Analyzer WS-50The Withings Smart Body Analyzer WS-50 represents the newest technology from your home. All you need is a smartphone and the app required by this Body Analyzer. It is very convenient because it works on both iOS and Android, so you don’t have to worry about ‘What if it doesn’t work?’.
Another pro is that this device is also very easy to set up. You can connect it with the app on your smartphone just by clicking one button underneath to activate Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Once you are paired, the device will read all the information that your body can offer, like what is your weight, how much percent of your body represents fat, it will read your heart rate and it will also analize the quality of the air in your home. As if all this wouldn’t be enough, this device it will also give you informations about the weather, if it will be a rainy day.
Another pro argument is that you always have your data under control, so you can always know if you burned or not some calories.
Although we really love this product, there are some cons that we would like to discuss.
For example, sometimes the graphic that measures your weight changes it can be very difficult to read due to the fact that the scales are extremely sensitive and just a moment of abstraction can ruin your graphic. It is important to know that during the whole day your weight constantly changes. It only takes one soda or a heavy meal to put on pounds. Therefore, it is recommended to use your Smart Body Analyzer at the same time every day. But, to make sure that you register your results properly, the best you can do is to use the device once a week, so the final graph won’t look like an earthquake analyzer. The problem here is that you won’t be able to see immediate results, so unfortunately, you will have to wait a few moths before you really understand your readings and your graphics.
This device gets another minus because of the heart rate monitoring which works almost never. Not to mention that it takes a while until the device register your result, so you have to stay focused and without moving for a long and useless time.
In other words, although the Withings Smart Body Analyzer WS-50 can be gawky sometimes and a little bit difficult to understand, it is an excellent and complete device and with a little bit of attention and care, you will obtain some long-lasting results. So no more excuses, because now, every kilo that you put on it will be there to see.
