REASONS TO BUY
Tracks many metrics

REASONS TO AVOID
Bigger feet hang off the side

Because the entire surface of the Wyze X is covered in sensors, it provides consistent readings in both pounds (up to 400) and kilograms. It also tracks 12 different body metrics and is compatible with Apple Health, Google Fit, and Fitbit, in addition to the Wyze Fitness Tracker. The scale has a baby mode, so you can weigh your newborn or pet, too. And the 11.8-inch by 11.8-inch, ITO-coated-glass scale—which comes in black and white—is easily storable. At only 1.2 inches thick, you can slip it right under the countertop or even standing upright.

While our overall winner, the Wyze X has a few small setbacks. Although you can track many metrics, you need to be barefoot to get readings on them. The scale won't pick up anything under 13 pounds. It also doesn't measure in stones, unlike some other digital models on our list, like the Etekcity Smart ESB4074C, which also boasts a 40-pound higher weight capacity. Our runner-up, the Eufy Smart Scale C1, scored almost as well as the Wyze and was just shy of winning our coveted Editors' Choice award. It is also sleek, with a vast array of app compatibilities.

The Wyze X comes with an intuitive app with all kinds of useful features at an affordable price.

  • App 9.0
Standard Deviation: .20 | Type: Smart
REASONS TO BUY
Easy-to-use app

Not great for big feet

The Renpho Bluetooth Body Fat is a sleek, easy to use scale, with a great smart app and accurate overall performance. Setup is a breeze, as it easily pairs with the app, and a host of smart features will quickly and easily get you up and running in your quest for fitness and health tracking. It also has an approachable price compared to similar smart models.

The Renpho Bluetooth Body Fat, while awesome, does have a few minor drawbacks that may or may not affect your buying decision. For instance, it does not display weight in stones, which may affect some non-American users. It also isn't the best choice for users with larger feet, and it won't take readings with socks on. However, minor caveats aside, it is an exceptionally capable scale that will help you easily and accurately track your health and fitness journey. Another equally worthy option — at an even lower price — with a host of similar features and highly versatile app functionality is the Eufy Smart Scale C1.

We check for things like accuracy and ease of storing to evaluate each scale.

  • App 1.0
Std. Deviation: .23 | Type: Digital
REASONS TO BUY
Very precise
Small footprint
Easy setup
REASONS TO AVOID
Should not be stored vertically
Limited adjustability

Because the Etekcity EB9380H is a digital scale, it is not able to offer the robust technological features of a smart scale with a connected app capable of extensive health-tracking functions, but for many users trying to simply get weight readings for their own health and fitness tracking, it fits the bill and then some. It is easy to set up, the design is modern and attractive, and perhaps most importantly, it's an incredible value.

The accessible price of the Etekcity EB9380H does not mean you will have to compromise on precision or performance. It is unable to display measurements in stones, so it may not be ideal for some of our non-American readers, but an easy-to-read, blue-backlit display, in addition to the aforementioned features and accolades, make this an incredible value at the price point. This unit is sufficient for those looking for a basic digital scale, and not a smart scale. If you are looking for a digital model that does measure in stones, the Etekcity Smart ESB4074C is a simple solution from the same company.

We test accuracy and precision with a combination of body weight and hand weights. Here, the Etekcity EB9380H correctly picked up the 3lb weight we were holding.

SCORE
  • Accuracy and Precision 8.7
  • Ease of Use 5.2
  • Features and Storing 7.5
  • App 6.5
Std. Deviation: .33 | Type: Smart
REASONS TO BUY
Lots of health tracking on app
Excellent accuracy
Footprint is small
REASONS TO AVOID
Requires Fitbit for full benefits
Not compatible with other apps

If you are a Fitbit fan and already use a Fitbit device, then the Fitbit Aria Air Smart will be right up your alley, as it works seamlessly with the technology you already know and love. You will get to enjoy a large number of health-tracking options on the app, many of which you may already be familiar with. We experienced some connectivity issues when first pairing the scale to the app, but once connected, we were ready to take full advantage of the features in combination with our app and a Fitbit device.

While it's pretty clear that this model is an excellent pick for Fitbit users, and is one of the few models in our lineup that can be set to display in stones (as well as pounds and kilos), it's fair to say it isn't the best option for those looking for a versatile smart scale. You simply won't reap the benefits of this scale without wearing a Fitbit device. And at the price point, there are more affordable and more cross-compatible smart options that would be worth looking at instead, including the Renpho Bluetooth Body Fat by Renpho and the C1 Smart Scale by Eufy. Neither of these alternatives will display weight in stones, but each is a low-cost, high-functioning product.

  • App 1.0
Std. Deviation: 1.14 | Type: Analog
REASONS TO BUY
Very simple

REASONS TO AVOID
Large size
No adjustments or features

The Adamson A27 is the best analog solution for those interested in a simple and easy-to-use scale. It does not have the features or frills of either a smart or digital scale, but it might be a welcomed step back toward a less complicated world where you want to do a simpler level of health and fitness tracking through weight measurements alone. Many folks aren't interested in an overly complicated product that requires the pairing of a smart device to use, or even a digital scale that requires the occasional changing of batteries, and this analog scale is a refreshingly simple choice.

If you are interested in making your health and fitness part of your daily digital realm, this is not for you. However, on the opposite side of the spectrum, the Adamson A27 is also a great analog scale for those looking to measure their weight with an uncomplicated, maintenance-free device. The Inevifit I-BS002S by Inevifit is also a simple scale that doesn't throw other measurements into the mix besides weight. There's no app—just a clean and sleek scale, although the screen can be difficult to read. Another model that offers a simple digital display without a litany of other tech enhancements that we think you'll appreciate is the Etekcity EB9380H.

We make it our job to get very familiar with every scale we test, measuring, weighing, adjusting, and putting each one through its paces.

How We Test Scales


To evaluate bathroom scales, our test team designed and implemented a set of tests to assess each model's ability to deliver weight results accurately and precisely, using different objects of predefined mass throughout the process. Our team not only performed tests to capture raw statistical data, but we also set up evaluative tests to see how usable the data collected by smart scales via their respective apps would prove to be. We looked at how easy and intuitive these associated fitness-tracking apps and digital scale displays are to use. And we assessed the practicality and usability of more simple analog scales for comparison. We even looked at how easy each model is to set up and stow away when through.

Through testing, we learned which models were great for simply taking a weight measurement alone, which digital models were great for large and easy-to-see displays, and which smart models provide the most robust health tracking metrics, so that our team could provide the top recommendations for your needs.

Our testing is divided across four key rating metrics:
  • Accuracy and Precision (40% of overall score weighting)
  • Ease of Use (35% weighting)
  • Features and Storing (15% weighting)
  • App (10% weighting)

How to Pick the Best Scale for You


You may be someone who wants to meticulously track their exercises and organize your goals. Or, you could be someone who just wants to keep their weight in check. If you are one of these people, or somewhere in between, one of the units in our lineup will be sure to fulfill your needs.

Smart Scales


These units come with a smart app that often has tracking abilities and can sometimes connect to your fitness tracker, such as the Wyze X or Fitbit Aria Air Smart. Most baseline smart scales come with meal and BMI tracking. If you're detail-oriented and like to keep track of your progress, you'll likely want a smart scale.

Digital Scales


Digital models are often much simpler and cost-effective than those with smart capabilities. If you simply want to step on a scale without all the extra features but also value accuracy, we recommend choosing a digital scale.

Analog Scales


These devices may not always be the most accurate, but they come pretty close and are often the cheapest scales you can find. With an analog, you also won't need to replace the batteries. Just unbox it and go on with your day. If you value simplicity and are budget-minded, we highly recommend purchasing an analog scale.

Analysis and Test Results


Our test team examined accuracy and precision, user-friendliness, the presence and quality of smart features like apps, any value additive features, and lastly, the storability of each scale. We compared them to one another and used each to monitor health and track fitness.


Value


To find the best value in a bathroom scale, there are several factors to consider. Firstly, it is important to determine your specific needs and preferences. You will want to consider whether you require additional features such as body composition analysis, connectivity to apps or devices, a large display, or want a more simple analog scale to simply take a weight measurement. Deciding on your base requirements upfront will help you identify which one of the many great scales we tested will best meet your expectations, but also fit nicely within your budget.

The old adage “You get what you pay for” is becoming more obscured with incredibly affordable manufacturing processes and highly affordable, yet still complex, electronics. When it comes to a bathroom scale, you do not need to compromise on accuracy and quality to find a balance between affordability and quality. In the world of smart scales, we found the Renpho Bluetooth Body Fat to not only be incredibly capable but also very budget-friendly, and in the world of digital scales, the Etekcity EB9380H stood out for its easy setup, a great degree of accuracy, ease of use, and a very low price point. The Etekcity Smart ESB4074C also comes at a similarly low price point, but you'll only get weight and BMI readings. Contrary to what you might expect, the analog scales we tested are actually among the more expensive models we tested, which may still present a good value if you desire simplicity.

Accuracy and Precision


The importance of precision and accuracy of bathroom scales is fundamental for reliable health monitoring and tracking. Accuracy ensures that the measurements provided by the scale provide trustworthy data for decisions related to diet, exercise, and overall lifestyle adjustments. Precision, on the other hand, ensures that the scale delivers consistent measurements over time, allowing users to track small changes in weight that could indicate progress toward fitness goals, potential health issues, or the effectiveness of a dietary or fitness regimen. Therefore, both precision and accuracy are essential for a bathroom scale to function as a valuable tool in maintaining and improving individual health and well-being. Given the obvious importance of accuracy and precision, the scores from this test metric have accounted for 40% of each product's overall score.


Our precision and accuracy tests followed a strict set of procedures using known weights. These procedures included the tester wearing the same outfit and having bare feet while weighing themselves five times, allowing 5 minutes of time between each weighing, and standing in the same location on the scale every time. We also restricted the use of the bathroom, eating snacks, or drinking liquids during these weighings to maintain consistency.

In order to measure the accuracy of each model, we calculated their standard deviation using various measurement tests involving body weight and free weights. The smaller the bar on this graph, the better the scale performed during testing. Products are listed in the order they scored, with the Eufy Smart Scale C1 leading the pack.

That procedure was repeated for additional testing while we held a 10 pound weight for three rounds for detecting noticeable increases and a 3 pound weight for detecting minor gains. Lastly, a similar procedure was performed with weighing a 10 pound black ball on its own three times with 5 minutes between each weighing. Scales with the lowest standard deviations received the highest scores, and a couple of models stood out from the rest for their excellent precision and accuracy.

The Eufy Smart Scale C1 narrowly led two runner-ups with a near-perfect score for the metric. Specifically, the Eufy had zero deviation in recorded weights across multiple tests and achieved a nearly perfect score overall. The Wyze X and the Etekcity ESB4074C were hot on the heels of the Eufy Smart Scale C1, and both offered nearly as accurate measurements with very minor standard deviations.

If precision matters most to you, then you'll want to take a look at those top models, but the Fitbit Aria Air Smart and Renpho Bluetooth Body Fat also offered incredibly accurate data, with very small standard deviations in measurements — which is fortunate for Fitbit users, and users looking at the Renpho Bluetooth Body Fat to save some money.

By no means were any scales inaccurate; they simply didn't have as small a standard deviation in our testing as the top models. However, the two analog models we tested produced the largest deviations, and it was evident in our testing that the digital and smart scales are more precise than the analog ones.

Ease of Use


Ease of use is a significant factor when it comes to bathroom scales. Ideally, these products should be simple to operate, with clear and readable displays, and straightforward functionality. Overly complex scales can lead to misinterpretations of readings, which can result in incorrect health assessments. Moreover, if a scale is difficult to use, people might be less inclined to use it regularly, thus limiting its potential benefits for ongoing health monitoring. User-friendly scales can accommodate a wide range of users, including the elderly or those less comfortable with complex technology. Given its importance when looking for a bathroom scale, this metric comprises 35% of the overall score of each model.


At the top of our product lineup, the Adamson A27 proved to be the easiest model to use. As an analog model it is fairly straightforward, and a large display with a red high-contrast needle makes taking readings about as easy as looking at large digital numbers. Initial setup involves calibration, which is easily done via the taring dial. Its standing area for taking readings is also quite large, so you won't need to do any balancing acts to get an accurate reading.

The Etekcity EB9380H, a digital model, also stood out above the majority of models we tested for its ease of use. Namely, unboxing and setup are simple. A protective strip simply needs to be removed from pre-loaded batteries, and the model we tested needed no calibration. A digital backlit screen lights up with an attractive blue color and is a decent size, making it easy to read the black high-contrast numbers on the display.

We found the Wyze X was also easy to use and read. It fits most feet with a dimension of 11.8" x 11.8", and we enjoyed the feeling of the coated glass platform beneath our feet.


While the more complicated smart scales we tested are obviously disadvantaged by their additional features, app setup, and Bluetooth pairing, the EatSmart Precision Plus and the Renpho Bluetooth Body Fat both earned above-average scores compared to the entire test group for their easy and intuitive setup and great display screens. These are worth considering if you are in the market for an easy-to-use smart scale.

Features and Storing


For our third major test metric, features and storing, we evaluated and rated each model's features and storability. For features, we specifically examined the ability to tare each model and the number of units each model displays. IE: Pounds, Kilograms, and Stones. For the storage portion of the metric, we looked at the general size and weight of each scale and whether or not models could be stored on their side. Features and storage scores contribute to 15 percent of each scale's overall score.


The Wyze X stood out from other models in this metric for a clean and clear on-scale display along with its many body composition measurements. These include weight, BMI, heart rate, basal metabolic rate, protein, and more. It can be set up for eight different users and recognizes who steps on the scale, and it even includes a 'Baby Mode.' Additionally, its streamlined shape makes it particularly easy to store.

The Fitbit Aria Air Smart followed our leader with an ability to display in three units of weight: pounds, kilos, and stones, and can also be adjusted to display BMI and body fat percentage. It's also capable of tracking up to eight user accounts. The thin design has rounded corners, which allows it to easily slide in and out of tight storage spaces when not being used.

The Eufy Smart Scale C1 and the Inevifit I-BS002S both trailed these models with above-average scores for the metric. Both are limited to displaying weights in pounds and kilograms and are limited in features on the scales themselves. Still, the Eufy Smart Scale C1 also has an accompanying smart app that expands its abilities for much more advanced health and fitness tracking.

App


Our fourth test metric, Apps, accounts for 10% of each product's overall score and primarily focuses on the five most intelligent products in our test lineup. Specifically, we evaluated an available app's interface and health-tracking features and weighted each submetric equally. Of course, our scoring system takes into account an unfairness if a scale has no smart features by design, as is the case with analog scales, and we have been careful to make a minor normalization to our collected data to balance those less intelligent models scores, without adversely affecting our data-driven results.


Of the smart scales we tested, the Wyze X, Renpho Bluetooth Body Fat, and Eufy Smart Scale C1 all stood out as truly exceptional and tied with nearly perfect scores for their robust and intuitive interfaces. However, the Wyze X and Renpho out-scored the Eufy by both tracking 13 health metrics—from weight and BMI to bone mass, protein, and body water—while the Eufy tracks 12 health metrics. The difference, while minor, was enough to identify a top model.

The Etekcity Smart ESB4074C is also a notable performer here, as the app is easy to navigate with accessible information. That said, we wished it had offered more tracking capabilities like the others instead of just a weight log. We also found the meal-planning portion of inputting foods to be finicky at times.

The Fitbit Aria Air Smart also earned a fairly average overall score for having a great interface. Users can leverage the app to log water consumption, exercise, mindfulness, food, and menstrual health—though these features have little to do with the scale itself.

Given their lack of smart features or an app, the rest of the basic digital and analog products we tested received mathematically normalized scores.

This smart scale is ready to help you on your health and fitness journey.
