Works with Linux,
This review is from: Withings Black Wifi Body Scale (Personal Care)
Just got these scales a couple of days ago and am very impressed so far. When I bought them there was no mention anywhere that the setup software was Linux compatible but I thought I'd give it a go anyway. Upon going to the download page of the Withings website, my Linux operating system was detected and the appropriate setup software was offered for download.
I was pleasantly surprised that the Linux support for this device worked so well as a lot of manufacturers ignore this platform. I thought I should mention it in my review as I couldn't find a definitive answer as to whether it would work or not before I took the plunge and bought the scales.
As for the device itself, it is very well made and works extremely well. The web application that tracks your weight is very slick and easy to use.
As other reviewers have said, the scales are quite expensive, but unless I somehow manage to break them I don't think I'll ever need to buy another set of scales again.

Thanks about the Linux comment. I use Linux only at home and wish manufacturers of all kind of peripherals would take notice that Linux support will help sell their products.

I have just ordered one of these myself. If it hadn't been for this comment about it being Linux compatible I probably would have umm'd and ahh'd for a good month or two more and then not bothered.
I hear good things about these scales but the Linux support was the clincher! I am looking forward to their arrival now.
Withings really should mention Linux support on their website somewhere.
