People looking to measure their progress in a meaningful, nuanced way during their fitness journey, and want to keep track of body composition. Measures weight, BMI, body fat, lean mass, water weight, and bone mass. It connects with Bluetooth, shows full results, and stores the data, which will sync to your app when your phone is around. It also connects with FitBit, Google Fit, Apple Health, and other popular fitness apps. It is easy to sync with all apps, and users say it gives very accurate readings within 0.5-0.8% of what a Bod Pod calculates.
Sometimes the Bluetooth feature does not connect as efficiently as it should. However, users say they just need to close and restart the app, or restart their phone
Based on user ratings (92% being 5 out of 5 stars on Amazon) this is the highest rated smart bathroom scale. Based on the information it provides, the user friendly interface, and the convenience of tracking all body measurements in one easy step, this scale is a nuanced, must-have tool for your fitness journey

The health and wellness journey is different for everyone—and that means tracking the journey is different for everyone as well. And as a health coach, I never have my clients measure their progress solely in pounds, because if you are lifting, you are most likely putting on muscle mass. Muscle mass is more dense than fat, so most scales will show an overall weight increase as you gain muscle, without distinguishing between muscle and fat. Many people get discouraged from there, because they don’t realize that they are indeed, losing fat.
Enter the smart bathroom scale. This was an incredible introduction to the fitness world; before this, we’d have to measure our body composition by going to a Bod Pod and paying $75 every time just to see our body fat percentages. But with these new in-home scales, you can record your body fat, water composition, BMI, and much more, and then keep track of your progress on an app. Here’s more information about the smart scale I’ve grown to love.
