Im not sure, but I think the Apple Watch can't determine your weight. How should the watch do that? Or you want to step on the Watch to measure your weight?

He probably just means if it can track it.. Yes, you can do that with the health app

Yes you would have to stand on it.

This basic stuff folks. No offense.

Gravity is tricky no? :D

Then again, it could measure body fat/wrist circumference, altitude/location and make a good guess.

Get the withings scale it syncs with your phone
Second that. I've been very pleased with my WiThings Smart Body Analyzer scale. Like... way happier than I expected. It's a small thing, but, taking out all the "effort" besides just standing still for a minute from monitoring my weight and resting HR has been great. Never had such consistent recording of this data before. So, if you're someone who cares to track this data (and if you do any fitness/health stuff at all, even just dieting, you should) then it's so nice to have one of these things.

Plus it's kinda cool to get the day's weather report while staring at my feet lmao.

If you have a weight with wifi that integrates with Health, then yes you can see your weight on the watch.

Well this is weird......
This morning I was in the Health app looking through all recorded data for Weight and whilst practically every data point was added by the Health app there is one solitary data point that says the source was from my Apple Watch.

My question being, how the heck did the watch pass the data to the iPhone?

If I remember right, when you set up your watch it checks your height and weight and such. It then puts that info into the health app.
