Can Body Impedance Analysis (BIA) affect my pacemaker?

Yes, BIA may affect your pacemaker.

The smart body analyzer in Wyze Scale  X 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 X can be used even if you wear a pacemaker or are pregnant. If you turn on Weight-Only Mode 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, Wyze Scale X 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.

To only measure your weight:

  1. In the Wyze app, tap on your Wyze Scale X.
  2. Tap on the gear to open your Scale Settings.
  3. Tap Users and select your Nickname.
  4. Tap the toggle next to Pregnancy/Weight-Only Mode, then Yes to confirm.
