Wyze’s new $ 15 smart scale has a luggage, pet and baby mode

Wyze, the budget-focused technology company that now sells everything from security cameras for headphones, has launched a new smart scale with four integrated electrodes capable of measuring everything from body fat percentage to body water percentage. In addition to weighing humans, there’s also a dedicated mode that lets you weigh your “baby, pet, luggage, or your child’s absurdly heavy backpack,” Wyze says. The S scale follows the Original Wyze Scale released last year, but it is $ 5 cheaper with a price of only $ 15.

Weight is displayed on the built-in 3.5-inch LED display, while a companion app (of course) lets you set goals and track progress over time. You can sync data with Fitbit, Google Fit, and Apple Health and track data for up to eight different users. Battery life is 18 months from the included AAA battery trio.

In total, Wyze says the Scale S is capable of measuring 11 body composition metrics, which is in line with its original scale. These include: weight, body fat percentage, lean body mass, BMI, muscle weight, visceral fat, basal metabolic rate, bone mass, metabolic age, protein, and body water percentage. The Scale S will eventually be able to track heart rate as well, Wyze says, although this functionality will be released later.

Alongside its scales, Wyze is also announcing a version of its Wyze Outdoor Cam with a Forest Camo leather made in collaboration with Dbrand. The camera now ships for $ 59.99, which translates to a $ 10 premium over the standard outdoor security camera. The Wyze Scale S, meanwhile, is available to pre-order starting today and will ship in November.
