In the last few months, I’ve gained some weight. My body composition never allowed me to call myself a skinny guy, but I’ve never weighed so much as these days. That’s why I’ve started running, every evening at 8 PM, five days a week. Right now I’m able to make 10 rounds around the school playground what makes roughly 2.5 miles. Having in mind I’ve started with just two rounds, it’s big progress for me. I’m using Endomondo app to track it, and as a beginner runner, I can tell it’s a nice and simple app that suits all my needs.
At the same time, I’ve extremely lowered my calorie intake and made some real changes in my eating schedule.
On the other side, my mom, which lives downstairs in the same home, has some digital bathroom scale which I’ve started using when I started running. And boy…. It’s a painful experience. After a few days, I’ve noticed it shows 3-4 different measures that differentiate in more than 2 pounds, in just 10 – 15 minutes – which means it’s not precise. So I was pushed to make some research on bathroom scales, and you can read the results of that research below.
Modern looking bathroom scale, with a bit larger platform than the average scale, is a smart device. Besides the weight, it gives you insights into 12 measurements, including muscle mass, bone mass, body water, and more, making you aware of your weak points, and what you actually should be working on. It can be connected via Bluetooth, using the free VeSyncFit app, to all the main fitness apps like Apple Health, FitBit, and Google Fit, so you can store all your data to one place and track your progress.
It’s covered with 6-mm thick tempered glass, and measures up to 400 lbs, with the ability to track unlimited profiles, or simply said, family members. The display screen is a bit larger compared to the average display size in the category. The scale uses three 1.5 AAA batteries that come included with the package.
It’s a very nice and strong bathroom scale, and one of the highest-rated and best-selling products in the category. We highly recommend it.View on Amazon
RENPHO Body Fat Scale is the best-selling bathroom scale and the Amazon’s choice for best weight scale. Like the previous one, this bathroom scale does not only provide you with your body weight information but also gives you useful insights into 13 measurements, using BIA technology. All of the information is stored in your favorite fitness app, like Google Fit, FitBit, Samsung Health, or any other, using a free RENPHO app and Bluetooth 4.0 and above. Same as the previous one, this scale also uses 3 AAA batteries which are included in the package. The only consideration for this bathroom scale is that the display screen is a bit smaller than in the previous one. Otherwise, this is a very good and precise scale and offers enough features to be compared to a lot of pricier, clinic scales.View on Amazon
This bathroom scale is another equal competitor to the two above-mentioned scales. It’s a sturdy built, precise smart device that gives you insights into 13 measurements using Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis, or BIA, technology. Same as the previous ones it connects to your favorite fitness or health app via Bluetooth connection using the free FitIndex app, which you can download from Google Play or Apple Store. It measures up to 400 lbs and uses three AAA batteries that come with the package. Also, it allows the creation of multiple profiles, so your family members can use it, too. This can be done using different Smartphones, with a different user ID and e-mail – it means you can’t add a new profile directly on the scale.
It’s made of high-quality materials and it’s pretty accurate with a scale interval of 0.2 lb. The most important part is that it will keep you motivated to stay healthy or to achieve your goal.View on Amazon
INEVIFIT Bathroom Scale is an Amazon’s Choice for the most accurate scales for body weight. It’s the highest-rated product on our list and the most expensive one. It looks really elegant with a large 3.6 inches display and made of high-quality tempered glass. The bathroom scale itself is a bit larger than the average scale – 11.8 x 11.8 inches. It uses four AAA batteries, measures up to 400 lbs with 0.2 lb increments, and allows you multiple user creation. Also, it has a built-in auto shut-off and auto shut-on option, thus saving the battery life.
It’s made with no intention to be another all-in-one device. On the contrary – it’s simply a bathroom scale that does exactly what it’s supposed to do. It’s simple to use and convenient, high-quality and precise bathroom scale and we highly recommend it.View on Amazon
This scale is so far the most expensive bathroom scale on the list. It uses award-winning precision dual BIA technology, offering you insights into 17 measurements and all that in fewer than 20 seconds. It allows the creation of 8 users per device which the scale automatically recognizes – even infants, which makes it a far more advanced device comparing to the above-mentioned bathroom scales. All the information is gathered using the FitTrack Pro app, which connects to the scale via Bluetooth connection. Also, the information can be stored in Google Fit, FitBit, Apple Health, or any other app you prefer. It supports 400 lbs of maximum weight and requires 3 AAA batteries to operate. The only consideration we could think of it’s that it’s pretty heavy, but that’s something we can deal with.
Overall it’s an excellent choice that will keep you engaged!View on Amazon
As its name says, this bathroom scale tracks your body composition as well as a heart rate. It’s one of the most accurate bathroom scales on the market, but the most expensive on our list, too. What differentiates it from the rest of the competition is that it uses Wi-Fi to connect to all the most popular fitness apps for smartphones and that it even has a baby mode feature, so if you’re expecting a baby you can keep track of its weight, too. Besides that, it can add up to 8 users, and it automatically recognizes who is who.
It’s a high-quality bathroom scale made of the premium aluminum base and heat-tempered glass, and it’s an overall great product worth every penny.View on Amazon
