Best Smart Scales of 2017

I started my weight loss journey about 11 months ago and since then I’ve lost 50 pounds. After reading the book Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle i realized how  important it was to track not just my weight but my body composition. To explain it in layman’s terms the wight of a normal scale isn’t important, because that weight includes  muscle, fat, bone, and water. Out of the four the one you should focus on is the fat. But how can you determine how much of your total weight is fat, well that’s why we have smart scales now. These scales are relatively accurate at reading BMI, Body fat percentage, muscle weight, water weight, and bone density. You can get detailed tracking of your body composition that would have required a doctors visit before. The scales send all this information to an app on your smart phone which tracks your progress, and can be shared with physicians, and trainers that are helping you reach your goals. For someone struggling with their weight, or someone who just wants to live a healthier lifestyle, this is a great way to track your progress and really know your body in detail. So we did the research and summed up the Best Smart Scales we could find online. Here is a breakdown of each scale and which Smart Scale you should buy and also how body fat scales work.

The Withings Body Cardio scale

The Withings Body Cardio scale gives you your body-fat ratio, heart rate, bone mass, water mass, forcast the weather, and also tracks your heart health as well as the air quality. What sets this scale apart from every other smart scale is that this one measures your heart health. This new technology that Withings has developed is called pulse wave velocity. Pulse Wave Velocity is the speed of the blood pressure wave along the arterial tree. Pulse Wave Velocity is linked to the elasticity of the arterial wall, and is considered the gold standard in measuring arterial stiffness which helps determine your heart health. Basically your paying your paying $35 more than the Withings body  to measure your heart health. The scale also has a built in battery that last for a year and can be charged with a micro USB charger so theirs no need buy AA batteries. This seems to be the most accurate body fat scale we’ve encountered. If you don’t mind paying the extra cash then this is by far the best smart scale based on the amount of features it offers. It even connects with the IFFFT app to do all sorts of cool things and also the My fitness pal app in order to help better track your goals.

The Withings Body Scale

The Withings body scale offers the same weight and body composition (lean mass, fat mass, BMI) tracking features, heart rate and air-quality trackingThere’s a large LCD display at the front that’s very easy to read without needing to bend over. When the Smart Body Analyzer Scale is connected to your Wifi network all of this data is automatically logged into your online account
that you can access with your phone. This was you don’t need to have your phone around to track your data. It can send data directly to your Withings account regardless of whether your phone is close by or not. The Withings body scale is now only $90.95 which is at an all time low for a high end scale that used to cost over $150.00. After doing our smart scale comparison we’ve decided that this one is the best bang for your buck. It can even sync with the IFTTT  app so you can set it up to turn on your Philips Hue lights when you weigh yourself each morning.

Garmin Index Scale

Garmin Index scale the Garmin reads weight, body fat, body water, muscle mass, and bone mass. easily putting the Garmin at the level of the Withings, and Under Armour scale. All your progress is track on the Garmin app on your smart phone you weigh yourself every morning and it create a detailed progress chart to let you know how far you’ve come. It’s a good way to track your health without you having to worry about writing anything down or logging anything on a computer. For Athletes who really worry about getting that extra edge it’s a must with the muscle mass, and body fat reader.

Under Armour Scale

The Under Armour scale is available primarily as part of the under Armour Health Box. which includes a fitness tracking band and heart rate monitor. The Under Armour scale track weight and body fat percentage and saves up to 8 different users. The data is uploaded to Under Armour’s impressive app ecosystem that can be seen on MapMyFitnessPal and MyFitnessPal as well as UA Record. This is one of the best looking body fat scales however many people with larger feet have complained about the circular design not fitting well.

Fitbit Aria Scale

The Fitbit smart scale record’s your weight, but like the Withings Body Scale, the Aria will also measure your body fat percentage and calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI). It does this by sending a tiny electrical signal through your body to differentiate between muscle, and fat. The scale records up to eight different people. The best feature of the Aria resides in its Web-based software and deep analytical tools that live online. Once the Aria has recorded your weight and other stats, it automatically transmits the data to Fitbit’s App its Wi-Fi. If your already invested in the Fitbit ecosystem we suggest you go with the Fitbit Aria

Polar Balance Scale

Polar Balance Weight is measured in either pounds or kilograms, and up to 10 different people can be recognized. one limiting factor of the scale is that its “smart” functions are enabled through sync with Bluetooth devices, not Wi-Fi connection. Users can pair the device not just to a phone, but to one of several Polar fitness trackers including the Loop series: the A360, the M400, and the V800. This makes it possible to sync weight without having a phone handy, though ultimately you’ll still want to transfer that data to a phone or computer.  Its interface not only graphs weight and BMI, but offers a quick look at the rate of progress, indicating whether your weight is changing rapidly enough and by how many calories you need to adjust.
