One of the best things about the connected world is that taking care of your body and tracking your weight, body-fat composition, and more, is no longer challenging. What used to require laborious measurements and likely visits to dietitians and doctors to be calculated correctly can now be achieved at home.
In recent years, scales have become better and smarter, to the point that you can now use them to conveniently monitor your progress whether you are on a diet plan, working out or moving toward a target of some kind.
There’s plenty of smart digital scales on the market, but we’ve limited the list to just a few real winners for you to take a gander at.
Fitbit Aria 2
In this digital age, Fitbit looks a bit like the king of personal fitness. The fitness trackers are very common and the monitoring they do is phenomenal as well. Nevertheless, if you wear a Fitbit every day, but want a more comprehensive understanding of your results, and want it to flow into the same information and reporting ecosystem, the Aria smart scale of Fitbit’s second generation is a fantastic addition.
The scale will calculate your weight, body fat percentage, lean mass and BMI and its true strength is shown by the way it uses Wi-Fi to automatically synchronize with your Fitbit app, leaving you with little to do but walk on and off.
You can have as many as eight different users and the ease of use is superb. This really is the essence of anything from a smart scale that you’d like, and we can’t praise this high enough.
Tanita RD 953
However, if you’re not entrenched in the Fitbit universe and have a hankering to try another brand, Tanita is offering a similarly impressive scale at an equivalent price. This has its own well-designed companion app for monitoring and evaluating the performance over time, measuring 10 different measures of body composition including peak weight and BMI muscle strength.
Withings Body Cardio
Another great name in the field of health monitoring is Withings, the manufacturer of smart trackers like smartwatches and sleep monitors. The Body Cardio scale is a powerhouse with smart features like a heart rate tracker to allow more than just your weight to take stock.
If you have a smartwatch for Withings, the scale is a no-brainer, even if you’re not in the network, it still makes sense. Withings ‘ software is beautifully laid out and its scale stripped nature is a little less robotic than some others on this list.
Completing our depiction of major fitness tracking brands is Garmin, which makes some of the most exciting quality wearables on the market, such as the Fenix 6 Pro smartwatch. Its smart scale is just as impressive as its watches, measuring weight, BMI, body fat and water percentage, bone and muscle mass. Like devices from Fitbit and Withings, it automatically uploads your data to eliminate the pressure from your shoulders and the Garmin Connect app allows you to take a very thorough look at breakdowns of your performance.
Nokia Body+ body composition Wi-Fi scale
You may consider it under the name of Nokia, or under Withings, because it was designed by the latter, but the Body+ scale is simply a less costly, slightly less powerful version of the Body Cardio we were featuring above. Nevertheless, it is still a great option for those with slightly smaller budgets who still want to get the benefits of a big scale linked.
It can connect with a number of fitness trackers like Apple Fitness and Google Fit, and its style is elegant and classy. The Body+ is a great choice, since it still monitors an amazing variety of stats.
