MobileFitI want to lose weight and track my progress along the way. Sure, there are several scales available, but this is Connectedly. I decided to check out the Withings Smart Body Analyzer (WS-50). It measures weight, body composition, heart rate and air quality. Withings has also partnered with hundreds of compatible apps such as RunKeeper, MyFitnessPal, and LoseIt.

You need to do a follow up blog in a few weeks after you have some data in there and lets us see how it really works!

Will wait for the review of this one. This is cool. It can measure my fats. Hahaha!

I like mine, but have had some minor issues with wifi setup and "phantom" readings that occasionally show up. The readings are easy to delete - the app lists them as unknown assignments and asks if you want to assign or delete. Bluetooth works well, if a little slow to register on the phone. Customer support is very responsive. Nice solid device and it does play well with the Fitbit app.

Ordered one today. Should get it this week. I have a BlackBerry Z30 and the Android app seems to be working well and I'll see once I get to use it how it works. I'm also looking at getting their Pulse O2 band to complete the fitness package. Hope it's good and it helps.
