The Body Cardio is a connected scale that helps users improve their health over time.

Created by the electronic company Withings, the Body Cardio scale tracks the user's health and features an app to inform and encourage a healthy lifestyle. The connected scale is very accurate and can measure weight, BMI, body fat, water percentage, muscle mass and bone mass. Most importantly, this scale has the capacity to measure "pulse wave velocity" which tracks "how quickly your heartbeat vibrations spread through your arteries." This is important because it is a measure of cardiac health -- fast pulse wave velocity means that the user likely has "high blood pressure, stiff arteries and a risk of hypertension."

The Body Cardio connected scale is an excellent investment for those who are not just looking to lose weight, but also to become healthier overall. The app-accompanied product tracks fitness goals while appealing to consumers who are embracing health-conscious lifestyle choices.
