Are you the proud owner of a new Body Cardio? Want to know how to make the most of it? You've come to the right place. Read on to learn about all of the exciting features of your new connected scale.
Once you’ve finished pairing the Body Cardio with your phone, you’re ready to start tracking your weight, body composition, and overall heart health.
1. Find a home for your scale. Your scale can live in the bedroom or the bathroom, really anywhere that’s convenient for you. Just be sure to pick a spot that helps you remember to actually use the scale.
2. Hop on the scale. Our Position Control™ technology will help you find the center for the most accurate reading. If your weight resembles that of another user, the screen will split showing both trigrams (the three letters you choose to identify each user). Lean to the side displaying your trigram to signal which user you are, and the data will register to your profile.
3. The scale will display weight, body composition (muscle and bone mass plus body fat and total water percentage), heart rate, and a local weather report (if connected through a Wi-Fi network). It can also show your steps from the previous day if you’ve been using a Nokia activity tracker or Health Mate’s built-in activity tracking feature and you activate this screen.
The Body Cardio will also begin measuring your pulse wave velocity starting at your first weigh-in. This measurement will not display on the scale’s screen, but once Body Cardio has successfully recorded five measurements, you can begin tracking your Pulse Wave Velocity in the Health Mate app.
To customize what appears on the scale screen go to “my devices” > select the Body Cardio > select “Screens customization.”
Note: Don’t worry if the weather screen doesn’t show up the first time you step on the scale with Wi-Fi enabled. Once your first round of data is sent to Health Mate, the scale’s location will be set, and the weather screen should display during your next weigh-in.
4. All data, including pulse wave velocity, will be instantly and automatically updated on your Nokia Health Mate account. Open the Health Mate app to analyze your trends and track your progress.
Interpret Your Results
When you open Health Mate after stepping on the scale, you will find several screens to help you interpret your results.
The screens below display a snapshot of your weight, BMI, body composition and PWV.
Remember that you must successfully weigh in five times before Pulse Wave Velocity measurements will be displayed.
Understand Pulse Wave Velocity
Body Cardio is the first scale that can give an accurate assessment of your overall cardiovascular health. Thanks to all-new sensors, the scale measures the propagation speed of the pulse waves along the arteries – also known as Pulse Wave Velocity – which can indicate risks of hypertension or arterial stiffness.
The lower this measurement gets, the better your heart health. Increased activity and healthy eating habits can help anyone improve pulse wave velocity in a relatively short amount of time.
