Studies have found that regularly weighing yourself can promote weight loss. Furthermore, it makes it easier to stick to healthy habits. So, having a high-quality bathroom scale at home is good for your health.
But why settle for conventional weighing sales when smart versions are available? These devices do not measure just your weight. They can also measure your BMI and heart rate. That gives you more details about your body, which is good for your health.
Interested in buying a smart scale but not sure which one to buy? Here’s a list of the best smart scales on the market.
Eufy Smart Scale P2 Pro
Tech firm Eufy launched a new smart scale to take things up a notch. This one uses hidden – rather than exposed – sensors to take readings. You stand on the Eufy Smart Scale P2 Pro, and a bioelectrical impedance analysis happens. That generates your readings. This scale can take 16 measurements of your body, including weight, body fat, BMI, muscle mass, bone mass, and heart rate.
Some data appears on the scale’s digital display. It sends the rest to an app through Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. The app uses that data to generate a 3D model of you, which you can navigate to pick up all the readings.
There’s even a pet mode, which is useful for taking care of your dogs.
Withings Body Plus
This scale is definitely one of the best ones you can buy. It boasts an attractive design, for starters. The Withings Body plus gathers more information than many other scales. On top of that, it presents the information in an easy-to-understand app.
Every weigh-in appears on the Health Mate companion app automatically via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth sync. Your measurement history is available all the time. Thus, you can see which parts of your routines effectively bring your desired results.
If the Eufy Smart Scale has a pet mode, this one has a pregnancy mode. It can give you readings without raising safety concerns when you’re expecting.
The top budget pick is the Wyze scale. It costs a mere $20 but is loaded with features. This smart home device supports 12 health metrics – including weight, BMI, heart rate, body water percentage, visceral fat, and more.
Admittedly, the Wyze Scale’s app and display are a bit basic. But it includes Apple Health and Google Fit integrations, which can help you see the full scope of your fitness journey.
Since the Wyze scale is inexpensive, you can’t expect it to have all the features pricier scales have. You need to keep your phone close for syncing because this scale only supports Bluetooth connectivity. It does not have Wi-Fi connectivity.
Renpho Smart Body Fat Scale
This smart scale tracks 13 metrics using its built-in bioelectrical impedance analysis tech. That measures body fat percentage, skeletal muscle percentage, overall muscle mass, fat-free body weight, etc.
The Renpho Smart Body Fat Scale boasts a large LED display that is clear and easy to read. But that only shows body weight. You need to connect it to the app to see the other metrics. Also, you have to keep your phone with you because this smart scale does not connect to Wi-Fi; it only has Bluetooth connectivity.
Furthermore, you can track, save, and share trends to make more informed decisions when working towards various health goals.
Sportsneer Smart Scale
This smart scale features eight high-precision electrodes and a handle. That enables it to take you on a deeper dive into your anatomy with segmented body analytics. Often, that is a feature reserved for machines in a doctor’s office or gyms.
Most smart scales that use impedance are limited to electrodes that only come in contact with the feet. On the other hand, Sportsneer’s scale has handles with sensors, enabling it to give a slightly more specific picture of your body composition.
Please note that you may want the other options more than this one if you are pregnant or an athlete. For the rest, this is a solid choice.
The Withings Body has not many features. But it does have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, so it is easier to use than other options. Also, it measures your weight so accurately.
This smart home device has a 2.4 x 1.6-inch display that shows your weight, weight trend (up or down), and BMI. It also shows the weather forecast – so useful when you plan to jog after weighing yourself.
The Withings Body scale sync with the Health Mate smartphone app. You can view your data as a dashboard and see how your weight and BMI fluctuate over time through the said app. Furthermore, you can set goals and pair the smart scale with apps like MyFitnessPal.
This smart scale also has a pregnancy mode.
Fitbit Aria Air
You can use this smart scale even if you don’t have an Aria Air fitness tracking watch. But it is meant to be a companion to one of the best Fitbits. So it is better to buy them both.
Unfortunately, Fitbit Aria Air only measures body weight and BMI. Meaning it lacks body fat, muscle mass, bone, and water weight metrics, which are included in other smart scales.
This smart scale also lacks support for pregnant women, and it takes time to display your weight.
RolliBit Rollifit F8
This brand is less popular than the other brands that sell smart scales. But its smart scale Rollifit 8 deserves recognition. It has an attractive price tag. Also, it works with the biggest health apps, such as Apple Health, Google Fit, and FitBit’s cross-platform app.
The Rollifit 8 has a minimalistic design. It lacks any display until you step on the tempered glass. The display only shows your weight.
Also, keep in mind that this smart scale has a smaller footprint than most. It is coming in under 12 inches.
Be warned: it may give you weight-loss advice and display a sad face emoji if it thinks you need to go on a diet.
