Can Body Impedance Analysis (BIA) affect my pacemaker?

Yes, BIA may affect your pacemaker.

The smart body analyzer in the Wyze Scale circulates a small electric current through your body. This current calculates some of the scale's measurements, including body fat percentage. Though the current is weak, it can affect your pacemaker. 

However, your Wyze Scale can be used even if you wear a pacemaker or are pregnant. If you turn on the Only Measure Weight setting, the signal will be turned off and the scale will not affect your pacemaker.

Set the scale to only measure your weight.

Unlike other smart scales, the Wyze Scale has a unique feature that lets you disable the BIA measurement entirely to only measure weight. With this option turned on, the scale will not affect your pacemaker.

  1. Open the Wyze App and tap Wyze Scale.
  2. Tap on the gear to open Scale Settings.
  3. Tap Users, then select your email address to open the Account Info screen.
  4. Tap the slider next to Only Measure Weight, then Yes to confirm.
