The best smart scales on the market do far more than just monitor your body weight. Depending on which model you choose, you'll be able to get readings on your body mass index (BMI), body composition, and even heart rate.
Forget just standing on the scales every morning, like most of the devices in our home, the boring bathroom scale has received a digital facelift. You'll be able to connect the scales to your smartphone to get a collection of metrics.+Well-designed app+Useful stats on-display+Pregnancy mode+Stylish design-Small display
Overall, the Withings Body Plus is the best smart scale. It sports an attractive design, gathers more information than any other scale and presents the data in an easy-to-understand app. Each and every weigh-in appears in the companion Health Mate app automatically, via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth sync. And with your measurement history available at any time, you can see what parts of your routine are bringing you your desired results. The Withings Body Plus also has a useful pregnancy mode, which can give you readings without raising safety concerns when you're expecting.
For an upgrade, the $150 Withings Body Cardio offers heart health features, including a Pulse Wave Velocity measurement that is only available to users in the European Union. That data can be an indicator of hypertension, but the scale itself doesn't diagnose medical conditions.

The Renpho Smart Body Fat Scale is the next best thing for most fitness buffs. It's easy to use and provides a breadth of information for those who want to track their body composition changes. There are 13 metrics tracked using the scale’s built-in bioelectrical impedance analysis tech to measure body fat percentage, skeletal muscle percentage and overall muscle mass, fat-free body weight, subcutaneous and visceral fat, body water, bone mass, and more.
The large LED display is clear and easy to read, instantly showing weight. To see additional metrics, you’ll need to have the app connected and your phone with you, as the scale’s display only shows body weight.
If detailed and in-depth metrics about your health are important to you, the Renpho scale is an easy choice to make. It is affordable, hassle-free, and extremely informative. The ability to track trends and save or share them allows for informed decision-making when you are working towards various health goals.

Of all the best smart scales, the Wyze Scale is our top budget pick because it's loaded with features and costs a mere $20. The Wyze Scale supports a whopping 12 health metrics, including weight, body mass index (BMI), heart rate, muscle mass, body water percentage, lean body mass, bone mass, visceral fat, and more. It looks as good as the Withings Body Plus, and while its display and app is a bit more basic, it includes Apple Health and Google Fit integrations that can help you see the full scope of your fitness journey.
We wish the Wyze Scale had Wi-Fi connectivity so we didn't need to keep our phone nearby for data syncing, but that’s a minor qualm. This is a great pick for your first smart scale purchase and will cost you less than most other fitness equipment on the market.

If you don't need a scale with quite as many features, Withings' $59 Wi-Fi scale, Withings Body, delivers the basics in a stylish package. The scale measures your weight, of course, and does so accurately.We compared it to the $150 Body Cardio and a dumb (er, not Internet-connected) $20 digital scale, and the scale was within 0.2 pounds of both.
The Body, which comes in black or white, has a 2.4 x 1.6-inch display that flashes your weight, weight trend (up or down), BMI and the weather forecast. That's useful if you're weighing in at the beginning of the day before you head outside. The screen isn't the biggest, but it's easy to read and the numbers are big and bright.
The scale syncs with the Health Mate smartphone app, which is where its Wi-Fi connection comes in handy. There you can view your data as a dashboard and see how your weight and BMI fluctuate over time. You can also set goals and pair the scale with apps such as MyFitnessPal. And like Withings's higher-priced scales, the Body offers a pregnancy mode.
The Body doesn't measure your heart rate or your home's air quality, but those are bonus features you can do without to save some money. Plus, this scale works with both iOS and Android devices.A reliable and affordable smart scaleConnectivity: BluetoothSize: 11 x 11 x 0.9 inchesAndroid/iOS: Yes/YesMax Users: 16Stats: Weight, BMI, BMR, body fat percentageMax Weight: 397 poundsMyFitnessPal Compatible: NoBatteries: 3 AAA+Seamless connectivity+Easy-to-use app +14 body metric measurements+16 user profiles-No pregnancy mode-No athlete mode-No Wi-Fi connectivity
Eufy's Bluetooth scale, which pairs effortlessly with the EufyLife app for iOS and Android, displays your weight almost instantly on-screen. As one of the best smart scales, it nailed the weigh-in. The BodySense scale then syncs that number, along with a host of other metrics, to the app. Those other data points include BMI, what percentage of your body fat is made of water, and how much of your weight is muscle mass, bone mass and body fat mass.
The downside with the Eufy P1 Smart Scale, however, is the lack of pregnancy and athlete modes, which give better readings based on your body composition. If you're really into sports like weightlifting, the chances are your readings will be slightly off, and this might not be the scale for you.
That said, the Eufy Smart Scale P1 is a solid choice for anyone who does not require athlete mode. It is affordable, very user-friendly, and provides all the basic information you need plus more data in the app.

The Aria Air is Fitbit’s answer to the digital body weight scale, designed to sync with the Fitbit app and provide data to the collection of information gathered via your Fitbit smartwatch.
The Aria Air is an attractive Bluetooth scale that measures body weight and calculates BMI. Although you can use the Aria Air without owning one of their fitness tracking watches, the scale is meant as a companion device to one of thebest Fitbits. That said, the Aria Air lacks metrics such as body fat, muscle mass, bone, and water weight.
The scale takes several seconds to display your weight, which is annoying. It also lacks support for pregnant women. But if you're deeply embedded in the Fitbit ecosystem, the Aria Air is worth a look.
