Garmin Advances Smart Body Scale

Garmin has released the Index S2 smart scale with a new weight trend graph feature, enhanced accuracy, and a variety of biometric data for both serious athletes and health-minded customers alike.

Data syncs over Wi-Fi to the Garmin Connect account and users can view all their detailed health information in one place. It features a sleek, slimmer profile with a high-resolution color display.

“The Index S2 builds on the success of the first-generation Garmin smart scale with exceptional accuracy, improved design, and new weight tracking features that make it valuable for the wellness-minded customer and elite athlete alike,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vp/worldwide sales.

For the everyday user, the new weight trend feature keeps users from getting sidetracked by normal day-to-day weight fluctuations. This on-screen widget shows a line graph of the previous 30 days of weight readings, making it easy to stay focused on the bigger picture. For elite athletes who depend on tracking these fluctuations to monitor hydration levels, the Index S2 displays on-screen the difference between the current weigh-in and the previous weigh-in.

For a more holistic view of one’s health, the Index S2 measures a wide range of biometrics including weight, body fat percentage, BMI, skeletal muscle mass, bone mass and body water percentage.

The Index S2 smart scale comes in black or white, features a battery life of up to nine months, and is available now with a suggested retail price of $149.99.
