Withings rolls out baby and toddler Wi-Fi scale
Thursday, January 17, 2013 @ 2:50pm

Accessory manufacturer and designer Withings has announced the availability of its Internet-enabled baby and toddler scale, the Withings Smart Kid Scale. The Smart Kid Scale has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, which allows for the instant transfer of data measured by the scale to be sent directly to the Withings Baby Companion application. The scale and app combo provides parents a simple and accurate way to monitor, understand and share a child’s growth using the Internet.    



By using the Withings Smart Kid Scale and accompanying application, parents can access the history of their child’s weight readings and easily communicate the progress of the child’s weight with a doctor, pediatrician, family, and friends. In addition to storing weight data, the Withings Baby Companion app allows parents to capture other data and keep track of milestones -- users can log a child’s height, and compare with other children of the same gender and age. Breastfeeding parents can log when the last feeding was, which side the baby fed from and how long the feeding was. Parents using bottles can keep also track feedings by number of bottles and ounces consumed. The Smart Kid Scale can be used from infancy to 55 pounds. The scale features a large graphical screen for animations and instructions, and a button that allows parents to easily record the child's height. The scale comes with a two-piece interlocking baby basket that is inserted into the scale’s base and is used to weigh infants safely. The Withings Smart Kid Scale is available from the company's website and at retail for $180. The Withings Baby Companion app is free at the Apple App Store.
