Best Smart Scale (prefer body composition measurements also)



Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I usually just lurk in the background and read up on everything. But I'm getting closer to surgery now and my old scale is on the fritz. I'd like to invest in a smart scale and ideally one that is somewhat accurate for body composition measurements. Anyone have any they'd recommend?

Thanks!!

I got one based off of recommendations here and I love it! I got this one from Amazon

https://www.amazon.com/Bluetooth-RENPHO-Rechargeable-Bathroom-Wireless/dp/B079DQ7JK6/ref=sr_1_4_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1533860193&sr=8-4&keywords=renpho+bluetooth+smart+scale

I like that it connects to my phone and I can track it. I'm not sure how accurate the body comp measurements are but once I got my baseline, I can see it ticking down.

We bought the Weight Guru scale at Bed Bath and Beyond .... but here’s the link for it on amazon! We’ve had it over 2 years and it works as well as the day we bought it! https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00N9ENKDI/ref=mp_s_a_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1535065656&sr=8-1&keywords=weight+guru&dpPl=1&dpID=41mW5BeGZHL&ref=plSrch

Just got my Renpho scale delivered earlier today. Put it on charge so still haven't used it yet. DL'd the app but have to wait to turn it on to connect the two.

I'm using the FitBit Aria, because I have a FitBit Charge HR 2 watch, (and I've had FitBits for the past 8+ years now). It's pretty expensive compared to what's on the market now, but it works great.

I use this one. The only thing I don't like about it is that it's about the size of a linoleum floor tile, makes it a little awkward to stand on for a big guy. Other than that, it's great. Tracks my weight and other measurements over time with a phone app.

About body measurements other than weight: I've read that the base numbers may or may not be completely accurate, but a scale like this is still useful for tracking their progress over time. So, for instance, while my starting body fat percentage number of 49.1% may or may not have been completely accurate, the spread of -12.1% from that time (reading of 37% this morning) is more than likely correct and would probably be corroborated if I'd had measurements taken by a physician.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
