How does the Body Cardio measure my heart rate?

The Body Cardio uses a Withings proprietary technology to measure your heart rate through your feet while you are standing on the scale to weigh in.

What do I need to do to measure my heart rate?

Just stand on the scale barefoot as you normally would to weigh in. There is nothing more you need to do! You may just spend a few extra seconds on the scale while your heart rate is determined. Keep in mind that you must stand still and not speak while you are weighing in so that your heart rate can be more accurately measured. If you are in a hurry and prefer not to have your heart rate measured simply step off of the scale once the weight measurement has been completed. Your weight data will still be recorded.

Why is tracking my heart rate useful?

Measuring your heart rate at rest is an indication of your overall fitness level. A lower heart rate at rest implies more efficient heart function and better cardiovascular fitness. You will see your resting heart rate decrease as you are moving towards a more active lifestyle.
