Dear Withings Community,
I am very happy to introduce our new feature available on the Body Cardio scale: the Vascular Age.
This new metric, which will be deployed starting today, will allow you to compare your arterial age with other Withings users from the same chronological age.
How can this feature be activated on your scale?
- If your scale is installed via Wi-Fi:
The feature will automatically be activated via an automatic update. You will also need to download the latest Health Mate version (version 5.5).
- If your scale is installed via Bluetooth:
You will first need to download the latest Health Mate version (version 5.5). Then, you will have to open Health Mate on your phone in order to manually update your scale.
If you are interested, here are some articles regarding Vascular Age:

UPDATE: If you notice that your Vascular Age resets and reverts back to 1/5 qualifying step, please know that our development team has found a fix. The Vascular Age will reset one last time and you will need to do the 5 steps again but it won’t reset again after that.
Enjoy this new feature!
