Engadget Review

Withings Body Cardio is a handsome, elegant and easy-to-use scale. At $180, however, it’s relatively expensive. And the main feature you get for that price, the “pulse wave velocity” -- a measurement of your blood pressure -- seems gimmicky. On top of that, I didn’t have a lot of confidence in the measurements given for both PWV and heartbeat, as those things are measured very indirectly. It does everything else well, like weight tracking, fitness progress and more, but you can get those features via Withings’ much cheaper $100 Body Plus scale.
