Our choice, Best high-end

Amazfit Aurora

Its large amount of data, multiple settings and dual connection allow it to satisfy a wide audience by easily providing a personalised health report.

£ 63.37 on Amazon

In addition to a large platform that is comfortable for all types of feet, it displays your eight favourite measurements on its customisable screen. It takes a total of 16 readings and is suitable for both sports and pregnant women thanks to its settings. During our tests, we found it easy to use thanks to its intuitive app and Wi-Fi connection that makes it smartphone independent. Despite some weight variations and a rough heart rate, we were convinced by its price-quality ratio.

 

 

Best budget

Eufy Smart Scale C1

In addition to its very compact design, it benefits from an ultra-simple operation, an intuitive application and, above all, a large amount of data which, even if approximate, speaks for itself.

£ 24.99 on Amazon

It is easy to use and has strong assets, which, combined with a very competitive price, deserve a place in our ranking of the best models. In addition to the 12 data points collected, it can analyse up to 16 user profiles and its application is certainly the easiest to understand. Although you have to make some concessions on the accuracy of some of the values, we recommend it to a buyer who wants to have a global, simple and complete idea of his physical condition.

 

Best mid-range

Withings Body+

Despite its higher price, it stands out not only for its connectivity options but also for its accuracy and the eight data points it collects in a comprehensive and professional application.

£ 89.95 on Amazon

Although it is a little larger, it has an ergonomic design with a display that shows up to eight pieces of data. During our test, we found it technically flawless in terms of accuracy, reliability, responsiveness and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections. Although its application is not the most intuitive and could include even more data, it is still quite complete with its different modes and its great compatibility. Moreover, it meets the needs of all types of users.

 

Budget alternative

Huawei AH100

Although it is slightly less functional, it is slightly more accurate than its competitors. It also has a more complete intelligent display, and its application is just as intuitive.

£ 27.95 on Amazon

This smart scale offers a good price-quality ratio. Even though it only provides nine pieces of data (compared to a dozen for its competitors), it has the advantage of being a little more accurate. Its design is both smart and ergonomic, as it stops automatically and the screen displays a range of information. It is also one of the easiest to handle, thanks to its two intuitive applications and simple synchronisation. We therefore recommend it to anyone with a small budget.

Honorable mentions

Xiaomi Mi Body Composition Scale 2 (£27.31 upon publication): versatile but lacks accuracy, especially in terms of balance and muscle mass index. The LED display is still perfectly readable but it only shows the weight. Its great advantage is that it can weigh anything from 100 grams. Thanks to its reliable Bluetooth connection, you can access its intuitive application. It provides 13 pieces of data on your body composition and can save up to 16 user profiles. However, it is quite power hungry.

Honor Scale 2 (£32.99 upon publication): good for small feet and for functionality, but a little small and with a shorter battery life. It reads up to 14 data points and displays some of them on its LED screen. Although it is not suitable for large feet and is smartphone-dependent without a Wi-Fi connection, it is easy to use thanks to its intuitive app that can save a large number of user profiles. It is just a shame that the batteries need to be replaced after six months of use.

Huawei Scale 3 (£29.99 upon publication): more information-rich but not very durable and more expensive than its competitors. Its dual connectivity and its 11 data points were particularly appealing to us. Even if we can criticise its low battery life and the inaccuracy of its heart measurement, we are overall very satisfied with its accuracy. After a more complicated synchronisation, it becomes very easy to use and offers an intelligent display. Overall, it is a good way to get a rather complete and reliable health report.

How to choose your smart scale?

Smart scales have made their way into many bathrooms. Whether it is to monitor your weight, your muscle gain or just to keep a close eye on your overall fitness, it is becoming the health ally – along with smart bands – for many of you thanks to its easy tracking capabilities.

In order to choose an efficient smart scale adapted to your desires and needs, we advise you to take into account these few essential points: 

  • The different measurements: these smart objects do not just indicate your weight: depending on the model, it will be possible to measure your BMI (Body Mass Index), but also your body composition (fat, water, muscle or bone mass). Some scales can even detect your heart rate or determine your daily calorie requirements. However, you should be aware that these measurements are often quite approximate.
  • The paired application: it needs to be intuitive, easy to install and ideally free. The applications work via Bluetooth and/or WiFi. One obvious benefit is that your data is all stored in a history. Most of them can be used with both Android and iOS systems, but remember to check compatibility with your own smartphone before purchasing.

  • The display: although your data is compiled in the dedicated application, it is best to choose a scale on which the main measurements are directly visible. While some scales only display weight, others show BMI, progress line and weights. In addition, choose models where the numbers are clearly legible and possibly backlit.
  • The number of profiles that can be saved: most scales can be synced with multiple smartphones and tablets or accept multiple accounts on the same device. This means that they can be used by all members of the family, without ever (or almost ever) getting tangled up in measurements. Most of them have an automatic user detection.

  • The compatibility with other devices: some applications linked to your scale can synchronise with other smart objects such as smart bracelets or heart rate monitors. This allows you to compile all your health information in one place. Apps are also often compatible with other similar health and/or fitness related apps.
  • The options: the most complete models are equipped with functions such as a weather indication or an indication of the quality of the ambient air, which, if not useful in controlling your weight, may be interesting – but in our opinion remain rather “gadget”.

  • The power supply: generally, the devices are battery operated. However, there are a few high-end models with built-in rechargeable batteries, which is not only practical but also economical and ecological.
  • The design: if you use your scale on a daily basis, it will be more pleasant to choose a model that is pleasing to the eye. However, the most important thing to consider is a lightweight, compact scale that can be slipped discreetly under a piece of furniture for easy storage.
