The best smart scales for meeting your fitness and weight goals

Whether you’re starting a new fitness plan, resolving to get healthy this year, or just trying to watch your weight, it’s time to ditch your old analog scale and upgrade to a smart scale. 

What makes a smart scale different from a regular scale?

Standard bathroom scales only tell you your weight, while smart scales give you a more comprehensive view of your body composition that can help you tailor your weight-loss (or muscle-building) plan. They use Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology, which sends small currents through your body to capture body composition measurements.

Not all smart scales track the same measurements, but you can expect to find ones that show you body mass index (BMI), body water percentage, body fat percentage, muscle mass, bone density, fat-free body weight, metabolic age, and more. Of course, smart scales will also tell you your weight.

The number of measurements tracked varies from scale to scale. Some, keep it simple with just a handful of measurements like BMI and body fat, while others track up to 14 different metrics.

Smart scales not only give you all of this information, but they give you the ability to track your body composition data by connecting to your phone via Bluetooth or WiFi. (Bluetooth scales are often easier to set up.) Most smart scales will only show you your weight on the scale’s actual screen or panel. You’ll have to open the mobile app to see the rest of the measurements. Some scales require you to have your phone open to the app nearby in order to pull the data, while others work in the background and will sync with your phone the next time you open the app even if you didn’t have it near you when you stepped on the scale.

Some smart scales do have limits to the number of people who can use them, so if you have a large household you’ll likely want one that can accommodate everyone who lives with you. Each person who uses the scale will have their own user profile and the scale automatically knows who’s on the scale based on their body composition. (Though, users with similar body types and weights might get mistaken for each other.) If the scale pulls up the wrong profile in the app, you can easily correct it by manually selecting your profile. 

Do smart scales really work?

At-home smart scales aren’t going to give you as accurate readings as you could get from a medical professional, but can definitely give you more data than a traditional scale. Your readings might fluctuate more with a home smart scale.

Smart scales are accurate enough for everyday use and can help you track your physical health and fitness goals.

Can everyone use a smart scale?

Because smart scales use BIA technology, not all of them are recommended for everyone to use. BIA is pretty noninvasive, but some smart scales have warnings for children, pregnant people, and anyone with a pacemaker or similar medical device. If you have any concerns, check with your doctor before using a smart scale.

That said, there are some smart scale models that are designed for tracking pregnancies and child growth if you’re interested in tracking measurements for the whole family. We’ll indicate which ones are OK below.

This is an impressively accurate device for a relatively low price.

Image: Withings

The Good

OK for pregnant people and children to use • Automatically recognizes different users • Highly compatible with other fitness apps • All measurements are visible on the actual scale

The Bad

Expensive • Some reviewers have issues connecting to WiFi

The Bottom Line

The Withings Body+ is a good option if you want to splurge a little for a brand you know you can trust.

Withings Body+

Pregnancy and baby modes make Withings stand out.

  • What it measures:
    Weight, body fat, water percentage, muscle mass, and bone mass
  • Number of users:
    Up to 8
  • Size:
    12.8 x 12.8 x 0.9 inches
The price tag is higher than some of the competition, but that’s because you’re getting an established, recognizable brand. Withings has impressive fitness trackers, so you can expect the same high quality in the brand’s smart scale. The Withings Body+ is great for all users and has pregnancy and baby modes, which allow you to monitor your body composition and nutrition as you go through a pregnancy and gather information about the babies or tots in your life to monitor their growth

Image: RENPHO

The Good

Good price • Unlimited users • 13 type of metrics • Great customer service

The Bad

Some reviewers reported different readings in back-to-back weigh-ins

The Bottom Line

This is a good scale if you’re unsure about committing to the smart scale lifestyle.

Renpho Bluetooth body fat scale

The Renpho scale has a good number of features for its low price.

  • What it measures:
    Body weight, BMI, body fat percentage, water percentage, skeletal muscle, fat-free body weight, muscle mass, bone mass, protein, basal metabolism, subcutaneous fat, visceral fat, and body age
  • Number of users:
    Unlimited
  • Size:
    11 x 11 x 1 inches
I personally have the Renpho smart scale, and while I’ve never had my body composition measured by a professional to compare accuracy, it seems to do a good job. There have been some occasions where I’ll have to step on the scale twice for the measurements to show up in the app, but overall I like the app layout and the scale is easy to use and it seamlessly differentiates between users as long as the app is open at weigh-in.

Image: GREATER GOODS

The Good

Full results displayed on scale • Part of purchase goes toward charity

The Bad

Some reviewers had difficulty connecting Bluetooth • Larger than most scales

The Bottom Line

This scale is a great choice if you don’t want to have your phone nearby when weighing in.

    Weight, BMI, body fat, lean mass, water weight, and bone mass
  • Number of users:
    Up to 8
  • Size:
    15 x 15 x 4 inches
You don’t need your phone by you to weigh in on the Greater Goods smart scale — your info will sync next time you open the app. Something unique about Greater Goods is that a portion of each sale goes toward the brand’s nonprofit charity partners. So, it’s a high-quality product that also gives back. As for accuracy, this smart scale nails it in the weight category, while some reviewers reported other measurements being a little off.

Image: FITBIT

The Good

Fitbit app has advanced fitness tracking and planning

The Bad

Only tracks weight and BMI • Pricey for what it does

The Bottom Line

The Aria Air is the way to go if you don’t need full body composition readings but like Fitbit products.

Fitbit Aria Air Bluetooth smart scale

Fitbit users will find this to be an easy addition to their fitness arsenal, though it doesn’t track as much as the competition.

  • What it measures:
    Weight and BMI
  • Number of users:
    Up to 8
  • Size:
    11.81 x 11.81 x 1.06 inches
Fitbit is one of the most trusted names in fitness tech, so you can assume you’re getting an efficient and quality smart scale. If you’re already a Fitbit user, you don’t have to download a second app as the Aria Air syncs to the Fitbit app. Unfortunately, this scale is not super impressive in terms of what it tracks. It only measures weight and BMI, but the app does have additional fitness planning and goal setting.

Image: GARMIN

The Good

Displays all measurements on screen • Long battery life • Shows weather on scale display • App provides comprehensive look at overall body health for Garmin users

The Bad

Expensive • Might experience WiFi connectivity issues

The Bottom Line

The Index S2 was made for Garmin users to enhance their fitness tracking.

Garmin Index S2 smart scale

Garmin users can get a comprehensive view of their health.

  • What it measures:
    Weight, weight trend, BMI, body fat percentage, skeletal muscle mass, bone mass, body water percentage
  • Number of users:
    Up to 16
  • Size:
    18 x 16 x 3 inches
This is a pricey smart scale, but if you’ve got the cash and are a die-hard Garmin user, the Garmin Index S2 is definitely a good scale. The scale itself displays your profile name and cycles through all of your measurements instead of making you open the app. The scale’s screen even shows you the weather to help you plan for your day.

The Good

Image: 1byone

The Good

Fast app syncing • Easy setup • Unlimited users • 14 metrics

The Bad

Take the body fat measurements with a grain of salt

The Bottom Line

While body fat measurement won’t be as accurate as a professional reading, this scale gives you a comprehensive look at your body composition.

1byone smart scale

Store your fitness data in the cloud, export it as a PDF, or even enter it manually.

  • What it measures:
    Weight, BMI, body fat, body water, bone mass, visceral fat, BMR, muscle mass, protein, skeletal muscle rate, fat-free body weight, lean body mass, body type and body score
  • Number of users:
    Unlimited
  • Size:

The 1byone smart scale provides a whopping 14 body composition measurements and is ready to roll when you are and turns on without you having to tap it awake first. Within the app, you can save your data progress in cloud storage or export it as a PDF — and there’s even an option to insert data manually.

How a smart scale can help you lose weight

It’s easy to see how smart scales could promote motivation to stick to losing or maintaining weight. After you step on the scale, your information is recorded and sent to the accompanying app. Most of these apps track your progress in charts and allow you to set goals. Being able to see your goals and see where you are in terms of meeting them can motivate you in ways that simply writing down your weight can’t. 

This means you can track things like body fat and muscle mass over time, and most scales and their apps are compatible with other fitness apps like Fitbit, Apple Health, and Google Fit, so you can sync your data where you’re already tracking other fitness goals.

Some of these measurements might not be necessary for you to track. If you are just casually trying to watch your weight, you probably don’t need a scale that tracks your bone mass and muscle. But, getting a holistic view of your body composition can promote more mindfulness of your physical health overall.

You can enjoy everything you love, all the time.

Ultimate Ears might be one of the younger companies in the audio space, but it has already carved out a place for itself as a respected name in this market.

All of these brands are worth your consideration, but none have set the standard like Bose. The brand is generally viewed as the leader in this space, and consistently delivers products with crisp sound regardless of size.

The Good

Good overall audio • Water resistant design • Can link with another XB10 speaker

The Bad

Bass could be better • Easily attracts dust • Can occasionally suffer distortion

The Bottom Line

A well balanced speaker that provides excellent value for money.

Sony SRS-XB10

If you need a speaker that’s affordable and consistent, the XB10 is the one to look at.

  • Speaker:
    1 channel with 1 passive radiator
  • Wireless functionality:
    Bluetooth, NFC
  • Battery life:
    16 hours
  • Water Resistant:
    Yes
First up from Sony is the XB10 Portable Speaker. This is the type of Bluetooth speaker to check out if you are looking at the smaller end of the spectrum. This speaker is able to strike a nice balance between size and power compared to other speakers at this scale, especially as a one channel speaker. 
One way this balance is established is through the improved bass performance, which can always be a question mark for small speakers. And with a 16-hour lifespan on the battery and waterproof capabilities, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth.

The Good

Solid audio output • Water resistant design • Easily portable • Built-in 3.5mm cable for physical connection

The Bad

Low bass output • Speaker only has skip forward button • Shorter battery life compared to other speakers

The Bottom Line

The Clip 3 is portable, reasonably priced, with solid audio output

JBL Clip 3

Just clip the JBL Clip 3 to your belt and enjoy your music with one of the easiest portable speakers to carry around.

  • Speaker:
    Mono channel
  • Wireless function:
    Bluetooth
  • Battery life:
    10 hours
  • Water resistant:
    Yes
The JBL Clip 3 is one of JBL’s smaller Bluetooth speakers. That doesn’t mean JBL skimped on features, though.
Thanks to the body’s design, the Clip 3 is one of the more durable speakers out there. Not only is it waterproof, but the materials will make sure it survives other trials daily life might deliver. It can also be daisy chained with another Clip 3 to bump up the sound. And with an 10-hour battery life, it will help pass time during anything from day-long hikes to your bike commute into the office.
Users on Amazon have been happy with the speaker as well. Currently, 88% of users have given the speaker five stars, so it definitely delivers where it counts.

The Good

Excellent 360 audio • Water resistant • Voice assistant ready

The Bad

Average battery life

The Bottom Line

With rich 360-sound and a durable design, the SoundLink Revolve lives up to the Bose name

Bose SoundLink Revolve

Whether it’s at home or at the beach, the Bose SoundLink Revolve will deliver deep audio wherever you need it.

  • Speaker:
    Dual channel
  • Wireless functionality:
    Bluetooth
  • Battery life:
    12 hours
  • Water resistant:
    Yes
The SoundLink Revolve by Bose is a bigger version of the small speaker mentioned above. Bose does a good job of integrating the same features across all Bluetooth speakers available. So once you know what you get with one, its simply a question of how big you want to go. That said, with 360-degree sound, the SoundLink Revolve definitely steps it up from the Micro’s sound quality.
The quality of the Revolve is reflected in the 5-star ratings by 79% of Amazon users.

The Good

Solid bass • App features • Solid performance for the price • Daisy chaining to other Sony speakers

The Bad

Proprietary charging port • App can be buggy at times

The Bottom Line

Extra power and the capacity to daisy chain make this speaker an ideal party partner

Sony SRS-XB30

This ultra portable speaker packs plenty of punch for the price.

  • Speaker:
    2 channels with dual passive radiators
  • Wireless functionality:
    Bluetooth, NFC
  • Battery life:
    24 hours
  • Water resistant:
    Yes
If you’re looking for something that can bump out extra power, the SRS-XB30 might be the speaker to look at. It comes sporting some typical features, like the waterproof design, allowing for flexible use. That said, the XB30 is a definite step-up in power to the XB10.
While the XB10 sports a one channel design, the XB30 uses a dual channel design since its a larger speaker. That also means that the XB30 is louder simply because of the extra audio channel and can make the party that much more enjoyable. It will also be able to last as long as you need it with a 24-hour battery life.

The Good

Plenty of power for the size • Water resistant

The Bad

Can suffer distortion

The Bottom Line

The WONDERBOOM is small, portable, water resistant, and can deliver decent power

Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM

Ultimate Ears delivers a small, portable speaker that’s ideal for dealing with anything nature can throw your way.

  • Speaker:
    Mono channel
  • Wireless functionality:
    Bluetooth
  • Battery life:
    10 hours
  • Water resistant:
    Yes
One way Ultimate Ears has been able to find its place in the market is thanks to a product like the WONDERBOOM. While it may be small, it does pack power into that small body with a best of both approach. 
Now you might be asking, “what’s best of both approach?” Essentially, it provides durability similar to JBL speakers with the battery and sound quality on par with Sony speakers. And similarly to those, it can be paired up with a second WONDERBOOM for that extra oomph. The added bonus is the 100-foot range for Bluetooth, so connectivity shouldn’t be an issue.
With 77% of Amazon users giving it five stars, it’s definitely proven to be a popular and reliable speaker.

The Good

Well-rounded audio performance • Water resistant • Can connect two smart devices

The Bad

No navigation buttons • Battery life is shorter compared to other speakers

The Bottom Line

The Flip 4 provides a loud, solid speaker for anyone who doesn’t need all the bells and whistles

JBL Flip 4

JBL leans into pure audio performance and removes the physical extras with the JBL Flip 4.

  • Speaker:
    Stereo
  • Wireless functionality:
    Bluetooth
  • Battery life:
    12 hours
  • Water resistant:
    Yes
The phrase “bigger is better” can be very hit or miss depending on what you’re talking about. When it comes to speakers, it can become even more inconsistent. That said, the phrase rings true when it comes to the JBL Flip 4.
The Flip 4 delivers a bigger and better version of the Clip 3 speaker. The body is just as durable, making it ideal for group trips to the beach. The battery life is bumped up to 12 hours to make it through a long day out. However, the biggest improvement is in the speaker chaining. The Flip 4 features JBL Connect+, which allows for up to 100 JBL speakers that also have Connect+.
With 82% of Amazon users rating the Flip 4 at five stars, its definitely a quality product.

Bose speakers typically deliver when it comes to sound quality, so sound shouldn’t be an issue. It also features improved voice integration, since its able to work with Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant devices. And unlike previous speakers, the Bose Connect app allows the Micro to pair up with any compatible Bose speaker, and not limit it to the same speaker.
