Features and functionality
Is Body Segment a clinically validated product?
No. Body Segment is a wellness product, with a focus on helping users get a handle on their health.
Why is there a handle on the scale?
The handle allows the user to get much more accurate body composition measurements. It also enables segmental body composition for which users get fat & muscle mass of each body part: torso, legs and arms.
What's the difference between Body Segment and other Withings smart scales?
Body Segment is our most advanced smart scale to date. With a simple weigh-in, users get access to the largest number of health biomarkers ever seen on a scale.
How does the body composition capability of Body Segment differ from other similar scales?
Contrary to classic body composition scales without handles where the current is flowing only through the lower body, segmental body composition is performed by transmitting a current through the entire body from the hands to the feet.
This technology delivers segmental body composition metrics:
- Fat and muscle mass metrics are provided for each body part independently (torso, arms and legs).
- Body composition metrics (fat, muscle, water and bone mass) are calculated based on the entire body.
