Withings Body Cardio Description
Overview
With its slick and extra thin design, the Withings Body Cardio allows you to easily track
your weight and monitor your progress. Additionally, it calculates your fat mass, muscle
mass, bone mass and water mass by bioelectric impedance to inform you about your body
composition.
Of course that’s not all your Withings Body Cardio does. It provides you with information
about your heart rate and measures your Pulse Wave Velocity, a key indicator
of cardiovascular health. If you activate the Weather screen, you also get your daily weather
report everytime you weigh in.
Because the Withings Body Cardio is a connected scale, its true potential is achieved
when you use it along with the Withings Health Mate® app. Beside allowing you to install
your scale, the Withings Health Mate® app allows you to customize its display, to set
a weight goal, and to check the entire history of your weight data.
Thanks to its in-app activity tracking feature and the numerous partner apps you can
connect it to, the Withings Health Mate® app helps you reach your health goals faster
by helping you track your activity and check your calorie balance.

Using Your Withings Body Cardio
Tracking your weight and body composition
Overview
The Withings Body Cardio allows you to track your weight and lets you see how your
weight trend changes over time. Beside your weight, it also allows you to check your body
composition (fat mass, muscle mass, bone mass and water mass) which gives you a better
idea of your level of fitness.
Make sure you follow the following recommendations to get accurate and representative
weight measurements:
• Make sure you always weigh yourself around the same time to improve the consistency
of your measurements.
• Wait five seconds before weighing yourself if you have just moved your scale.
Weighing yourself
Thanks to the Position Control ™ technology, getting an accurate weight measurement has
never been easier. If your weight is not properly distributed on your Withings Body Cardio,
arrows are displayed on the scale to indicate in which direction you should lean to stabilize
your weight.
If several users have a similar weight, the following screen can be displayed:
Withings Body Cardio
v1.0 | June 2016
EN - 33
Simply lean left or right to select the correct name. Your measurements will then
be affected to the correct user. Make sure you return to your initial position before the heart
rate measurement starts.
If you want to get information regarding your body composition as well, make sure that:
• Body composition measurements are enabled. Refer to “Disabling body composition
and heart rate measurements” on page 30 for more information.
• All the body composition screens are enabled. Refer to “Changing the screen order” on
page 27 for more information.
• You step on the scale barefoot.
• You stay as still as possible during the measurement.
• You are recognized by your Withings Body Cardio, with your name appearing on the
screen display.
Retrieving your weight data
As soon as you weigh yourself, your weight is displayed on the display of your scale.
If you’ve activated the Weight Trend screen, you’ll also see a graph showing your eight last
measurements as well as the difference between the latest measurement and the previous
one. Refer to “Changing the screen order” on page 27 for more information.
To see detailed graphs about your weight and body composition, and see your full history,
you have to check your data on the Withings Health Mate® app.
You can access your graphs:
• By tapping the Weight widget at the top of your Timeline.
• By tapping any weight measurement item in your Timeline.
Once you’re viewing the weight graph, you can alternate between the tabs to view your
weight graph, your body composition graphs and your BMI graph.

Tracking your Pulse Wave Velocity
Overview
This product is not a medical device and should not be used to diagnose, treat,
cure, or prevent any medical conditions.
Withings Body Cardio
v1.0 | June 2016
EN - 38
With every heartbeat, your heart induces a wave along the aorta and arterial tree, which
leads to changes in blood volume within your vessels, making them expand and contract
accordingly. Your Pulse Wave Velocity indicates the propagation speed of this wave along
the arteries. It is a key indicator of your cardiovascular health.
The Withings Body Cardio allows you to track your Pulse Wave Velocity and lets you see
how it changes over time.
If you want to get Pulse Wave Velocity measurements, make sure that:
• Heart rate measurements are enabled. Refer to “Disabling body composition and heart
rate measurements” on page 30 for more information.
• The Heart Rate screen is enabled. Refer to “Changing the screen order” on page 27
for more information.
• You step on the scale barefoot.
• You stay as still as possible during the measurement.
• Your feet are centered on the scale, and in contact with all the stripes on the surface
of the scale. Ideally, your heels should be on the second stripe from the bottom.
• You take the measurement before drinking coffee or having a cigarette. Ideally, you
should wait at least three hours after drinking or eating anything to take
the measurement.
Withings Body Cardio
v1.0 | June 2016

Retrieving your Pulse Wave Velocity measurements
Your Pulse Wave Velocity measurements are only displayed in the app. They are never
displayed on the screen of your scale.
To see detailed graphs about your Pulse Wave Velocity and see your full history, you have
to check your data on the Withings Health Mate® app.
You can access your graphs by tapping any Pulse Wave Velocity measurement item
in your Timeline. Go to support.withings.com/bodycardio/pwv for more information
on normal ranges for this measurement.
Note that after installing your Withings Body Cardio, you will need five valid measurements
before you can access the Pulse Wave Velocity graph. These measurements are required
to calibrate Pulse Wave Velocity measurement on your scale. You will receive a Timeline
item every time you get a valid measurement, and a final one once you can access
the graph.

Linking Your Account to Partner Apps

your calorie outtake.

Technology Description
Weight
Your weight is measured thanks to four weight sensors placed below the surface
of your Withings Body Cardio.
Body Composition
Your body composition (fat mass and water percentage, muscle mass, and bone mass)
is measured by bioelectrical impedance analysis thanks to electrodes placed below the
surface of your Withings Body Cardio. These electrodes send a small current that goes
through your body, and then analyse the way your body reacts to measure these metrics.
Heart Rate
Your Withings Body Cardio uses patent-pending heart rate measurement technology
to measure your heart rate while you weigh in.
Pulse Wave Velocity
Your Withings Body Cardio uses patent-pending pulse wave velocity measurement
technology to measure your pulse wave velocity while you weigh in.
