Wyze, the budget-focused technology company that now sells everything from security cameras to headphones, has launched a new smart scale with four built-in electrodes capable of measuring everything from body fat percentage to body water percentage. In addition to weighing people, there is also a dedicated mode to let you weigh your “baby, pet, luggage or your child’s absurdly heavy backpack,” Wyze says. Scale S follows the original Wyze Scale released last year, but it’s $ 5 cheaper with a price of only $ 15.
Weight appears on the built-in 3.5-inch LED display, while an accompanying app (of course) lets you set goals and track progress over time. It can sync data with Fitbit, Google Fit and Apple Health and track data for up to eight different users. The battery life is estimated at 18 months from the included trio of AAA batteries.
In total, Wyze says the Scale S is capable of measuring 11 body composition metrics, which is largely consistent with the original scale. These include: weight, fat percentage, slim body mass, BMI, muscle weight, visceral fat, basal metabolic rate, bone mass, metabolic age, protein and percentage of body water. The Scale S will also eventually be able to track the pulse, Wyze says, though this functionality will be launched later.
In addition to its scales, Wyze also announces a version of its Wyze Cam Outdoor with a Forest Camo skin made in collaboration with Dbrand. The camera now ships for $ 59.99, which means a $ 10 premium over the outdoor safety camera. The Wyze Scale S can meanwhile be pre-ordered from today and shipped in November.
