The best electronic floor scales with diagnostics on your smartphone

This category includes 3 models of scales from popular foreign companies. For the convenience of users, we have arranged them in ascending order of price, but this is not an advantage of one model over another. Each position has its own characteristics and nuances, due to which it is considered the best in its price range.

Xiaomi Mi Body Composition Scale 2

Rating: 4.7

Xiaomi Mi Body Composition Scale 2

The Xiaomi Mi Body Composition Scale 2 model from the famous Chinese manufacturer of consumer electronics and various gadgets opens an overview of the category of the best floor scales with diagnostics displayed on a smartphone. The scales are made in China, like all equipment under the Xiaomi brand, and the official one-year warranty is provided for the products.

The device is made in a compact plastic case and has a glass platform on which 4 round stainless steel electrodes are located. It is through them that the analysis of body weight and other related indicators will take place. At the top of the platform is a display that is invisible under white glass when not active.

The scales are connected to a smartphone and display all indicators through the proprietary Mi Fit application. On the screen, a general assessment of the body and weight is available, as well as various parameters, including body mass index, the presence of proteins, water and fats, and general metabolism, muscle, bone mass and estimated body age. Some parameters are displayed in the form of graphs, which allows you to visually track the curve of changes for a specific period.

One of the features of the model is a high weighing limit, which is 150 kg, as well as an accuracy of 50 grams. Scales quickly set up and are immediately ready for use. The equipment is powered by four AAA batteries.

According to information from the Yandex.Market resource, the scales have a rating of 4.8 (based on more than 1600 reviews and more than 7000 ratings), and 90% of users recommend them for purchase. Among the key advantages, the owners of equipment named good reading accuracy, detailed analysis in the application, compact size and stylish appearance. Among the main shortcomings, it is worth noting some synchronization problems with the application, as well as sometimes occurring values ​​​​of +1.7 kg when turned on (instead of two zeros).

Wide functionality, practicality, accuracy of readings, a convenient application on a smartphone and an adequate cost have allowed Xiaomi Mi Body Composition Scale 2 to become one of the best in its price range.

Advantages

  • Modern look.

  • Accurate measurements.

  • Tracking various parameters.

  • Convenient application.

  • Low price.

Flaws

  • Not always stable synchronization over Wi-Fi.

  • Sometimes it shows +1.7 kg when turned on (according to user reviews).

REDMOND SkyBalance 740S

Rating: 4.8

REDMOND SkyBalance 740S

The next scale on our list is the REDMOND SkyBalance 740S. The equipment is made in China and has a one-year factory warranty.

The model is made in an ultra-thin body with a tempered glass platform. In the central part of the device there is a large informative LCD display, which displays the main weighing parameters. The scales are made in a modern design, and the glass surface has a pattern of gray concentric circles.

The device is synchronized with the Ready for Sky proprietary application, to which all REDMOND’s “smart” equipment is connected.

The application itself is implemented quite conveniently, and for clarity, the current weight is presented as a color chart. Other parameters (fluid volume, muscle and bone mass) are also present. The user can select a specific period of activity, and the application will display a graph of changes in weight and other indicators. To obtain data for detailed body analysis, the scale uses bioimpedance measurement technology (passing a charge through the body of low power), so you need to stand on the scale barefoot.

The owners of the scales speak positively about the stylish appearance, compact size and accurate measurements, as well as a fairly convenient and functional mobile application. The disadvantages of some users include an error of 100 grams, as well as the inability to track weight changes for several users on one smartphone. The problem with several users is solved in only one way – everyone installs an application on their smartphone, creates an individual account and synchronizes it with the scales before weighing.

We recommend the REDMOND SkyBalance 740S scales to all people who monitor their weight and lead an active lifestyle, since with this technique you can conveniently track the main indicators for a specific period.

Advantages

  • Stylish design.

  • Bioimpedance method of analysis.

  • Convenient application.

Flaws

  • You cannot track the data of several people through one application.

  • Large error (according to user reviews).

Picooc Mini WH

Rating: 4.8

Picooc Mini WH

We complete the review of the category of the best electronic SMART scales with diagnostics on the Picooc Mini WH smartphone. This is a Chinese manufacturer of “smart” scales, whose products are popular due to their high measurement accuracy and wide functionality. The model is traditionally made in China and comes with a two-year warranty.

Picooc Mini WH is a compact miniature version, the size of the platform is only 26×26 cm with a height of 2 cm. Despite the laconic appearance, the scales have a wide measurement range, affecting 12 parameters – from body weight to metabolic age of the body. Measurements of indications occur through contact with bare feet with four metal sensors located on a glass platform.

According to the principle of operation, the quality of analysis and measurement accuracy, this model is very similar to the Xiaomi Mi Body Composition Scale 2 considered earlier. The fundamental differences include perhaps a more thoughtful application, a more thorough analysis with the recommendations of a virtual trainer and nutritionist, as well as a more visual display all parameters thanks to the construction of activity graphs for a specific period.

Users who bought these scales positively evaluate a large number of indicators for analysis, the availability and clarity of the results. The disadvantages of some equipment owners include an unstable connection with a smartphone and the need to synchronize the scales several times.

Picooc Mini WH is gradually conquering the market, displacing competitors with high reading accuracy and in-depth analysis of various indicators, remaining one of the best solutions in its price range.

Advantages

  • 12 evaluation criteria.

  • Accurate analysis.

  • Clear and detailed display of results.

Flaws

  • Small platform.

  • Sometimes the connection with the phone is lost.

The best electronic scale analyzers (diagnostics without a smartphone)

In the category of the best analyzer scales without synchronization with a smartphone, 3 models from well-known foreign manufacturers are presented. Each of the models has wide functionality, tracking several indicators of the state of the body at once. All three nominees have their own characteristics, advantages and nuances, due to which each of them is considered the best in its class.

Tefal BM6010

Rating: 4.7

Tefal BM6010

The category of the best electronic analyzer scales is opened by the Tefal BM6010 model from a popular French company that produces small household appliances. The scales are made in China and have a two-year factory warranty.

The weighing platform is made of glass and enclosed in a metal frame. There are also four metal strips on the surface of the case, 2 on each side. This is not just a decor, but bioelectric analyzers, thanks to which the device determines the amount of fat mass in the body. At the top is a large LCD display, on the sides of which are touch controls.

Among the key features of the model, it is worth noting the ability to memorize up to 4 profiles, which will allow all family members to use the same scales. To register an entry, you must enter your gender, age and height. These are key indicators that, together with the current weight, will help to calculate the percentage of adipose tissue and its change with each weighing. It is noteworthy that the scales can independently determine the user as soon as he gets on the platform.

Weight is displayed on the display in large numbers, which provides clarity of measurements, the increase or decrease in fat mass will be shown below on the scale with arrows.

Feedback from the owners of equipment confirms the high measurement accuracy and visibility of indicators due to the large display. Also, the benefits of many users include the ability to daily track the dynamics of changes in fat mass and memorize 4 profiles. Among the shortcomings, some consumers note the lack of analysis of the dynamics of weight and adipose tissue over a certain period.

We recommend Tefal BM6010 scales to all users who monitor their weight, but do not want to buy a model with a connection to a smartphone, and will not delve into the analysis of body weight by 10-15 criteria.

Advantages

  • High measurement accuracy.

  • visibility.

  • Intuitive menu.

  • Memory for 4 users.

  • Modern design.

Flaws

  • There is no analysis of indicators for a certain period (according to consumer reviews).

Omron BF508

Rating: 4.7

Omron BF508

The next model on our list is the Omron BF508 from a well-known Japanese company that manufactures health products. The device is made in China and has a factory warranty of 5 years.

Omron BF508 is not just a scale, but a real body composition monitor with a wide range of functionality. The first key difference from most analogues is the presence of a remote information display module, which is made in the form of a display with two metal handles, and is fixed at the top of the weighing platform. The block itself is connected to the base with a flexible wire.

Sensors-analyzers are located not only on the platform, but also in the metal handles of the remote unit, therefore, for correct measurement, you need to be barefoot on the scales, grab the handles of the remote module and raise it to chest level. In addition to the display on the unit, there are control keys, thanks to which the user can see the analysis of additional parameters – body mass index, total fat percentage, as well as the amount of visceral fat.

The device has its own memory, which allows it to support up to 4 profiles. To create your own account, you must enter your height, gender, and age. Together with the weight, these data will form the basis for the analysis of the main parameters of the body.

Also, the model is equipped with a “guest” mode (without storing data) and the “just weight” option (regular weight mode without analysis of adipose tissue).

According to user reviews from the otziv-otziv.ru resource, most equipment owners speak positively about the high measurement accuracy, a simple and understandable menu, and also about the analysis of fat mass. The disadvantages of some consumers include problems with the display, which appear for 2-3 years of operation.

The Omron BF508 is a bathroom scale with legendary Japanese precision that remains one of the best models in its price range.

Advantages

  • 8 sensors for analysis.

  • Remote module with display.

  • High measurement accuracy.

  • Visibility and convenient menu.

Flaws

  • There may be problems with the display (according to consumer reviews).

Tanita BC-587

Rating: 4.8

Tanita BC-587

The latest scale in this category is the Tanita BC-587 from the famous Japanese manufacturer of health products. The official warranty for the device is 36 months, and all issues related to the maintenance or repair of equipment can be resolved through branded service centers, which are in many cities of Russia.

The model is made in a case made of tempered glass, and the platform itself has an increased size compared to analogues, which is important for people with large feet. One of the features of the device is that the maximum weight limit is 200 kg, which is considered one of the highest rates among household scales.

In the center of the platform is a display and a control panel with buttons that runs through the entire body, gradually narrowing towards the bottom. At the corners of the glass platform there are 4 tinted metallic zones, which are analyzer sensors.

The device analyzes 10 key indicators (fat level, body mass index, visceral fat, muscle and bone mass, etc.), which allows you to get real information about your body condition and take the necessary measures to improve the situation.

The presence of its own memory allows you to store readings of 4 different users. When you turn on the “guest” mode, the data will not be saved. For people who have been actively involved in sports for a long time, a special Athlete mode has been developed, when activated, the device uses a special algorithm for analyzing indicators to obtain the most accurate results, taking into account constant loads. Also, the user can turn off the analysis of the state of the body and use the device only for weighing (relevant for pregnant women who are contraindicated in bioelectric body analysis technology).

According to user reviews from the Yandex.Market resource, the model has a rating of 4.7 points, while 100% of consumers recommend an analyzer scale for purchase. Owners of equipment note the high build quality, measurement accuracy, wide functionality and a convenient menu. No critical shortcomings were identified, only some respondents point to small errors in measurements of about 2-3%.

We recommend the Tanita BC-587 analyzer balance to all users who want a multifunctional, accurate and practical device with true Japanese quality.

Advantages

  • Analysis of the state of the body according to 10 parameters.

  • Convenient menu.

  • The maximum weighing limit is 200 kg.

  • Storage in memory up to 4 user profiles.

  • Athlete mode.

  • Display illumination.

Flaws

  • Not found.

Kitfort KT-804-3

Rating: 4.6

Kitfort KT-804-3

The model is made in beige-pink color, and the entire surface of the glass platform is decorated with a floral ornament.

Polaris PWS 1861DML

Rating: 4.8

Polaris PWS 1861DML

Completes the category of the best floor electronic scales Polaris PWS 1861DML from a well-known domestic company. The model is made in China, and the manufacturer gives it a two-year warranty.

Scales differ from the two models considered earlier not only in appearance, but also in the materials used and functionality. If most inexpensive floor scales have a platform made of glass, and the lower part of the case is made of plastic, then the Polaris PWS 1861DML platform is made of polished stainless steel. This at least gives the scales a stylish look, and also significantly increases their strength. In addition, getting barefoot with wet feet on stainless steel is a little safer than on glass.

The second interesting point is that the model shows not only the current weight of the user, but also the air temperature, which is displayed on the right side of the display.

The maximum load on the platform is 180 kg, and the measurement error is 100 grams.

The owners of the scales speak positively about their appearance, a solid platform made of stainless steel, the presence of a temperature sensor and high accuracy of determining the weight. Among the shortcomings, some consumers note difficulties with opening the battery compartment and inconsistencies with the instruction manual (the user manual states that to replace the batteries, you need to unscrew the screw that fixes the cover, but in fact the compartment opens by pressing on the cover and shifting to the side) .

The stainless steel case, room temperature detection, robust design, bright large display and high measurement accuracy have made Polaris PWS 1861DML floor scales one of the best in their price category.

Advantages

  • Stainless steel platform.

  • Display of the air temperature in the room.

  • Large illuminated display.

Flaws

  • Problems with opening the battery compartment (according to consumer reviews).

The best mechanical floor scales

For this category, 3 models of mechanical scales from different manufacturers were selected. Despite the general similarity and the same principle of operation, each of the presented positions has its own differences and nuances that make it the best in a particular price category.

FIRST AUSTRIA 8020

Rating: 4.7

FIRST AUSTRIA 8020

Our review of the best mechanical floor scales opens with FIRST AUSTRIA 8020. The brand has Austrian roots, as indicated in its name, but all products are made in China, which made it possible to make the equipment as affordable as possible. Among all the models of scales considered in our review, these are the cheapest. Low cost does not mean poor quality, which is confirmed by this model.

The scales are made in a plastic case, and the upper part has a embossed rubberized surface that prevents slipping if you become bare/wet feet. In the upper part of the case there is a measuring scale with an arrow. A calibration wheel is installed under the platform in the lower part, thanks to which you can fine-tune the scales at the first use, as well as periodically adjust them during operation.

The maximum allowable load is 130 kg, and the measurement error is 1 kg, which is within the normal range for mechanical scales in the budget segment.

According to consumer reviews, most of them are satisfied with the technology, while people attribute low price, simplicity and the absence of the need to regularly buy batteries to the positive points. Among the shortcomings, some respondents note a large error.

Low price, good build quality and simplicity of design allowed the FIRST AUSTRIA 8020 scales to take one of the leading places in the budget price segment and in our rating.

Advantages

  • Low cost.

  • Simplicity and reliability.

Flaws

  • Error 1 kg.

Scarlett SC-BS33M043

Rating: 4.8

Scarlett SC-BS33M043

The next model in our review is the Scarlett SC-BS33M043. This is another budget mechanical scales. According to the type of design and principle of operation, they are no different from the previously considered model. The difference will be only in appearance, measurement scale markings and the maximum allowable load.

The scale platform looks stylish and original thanks to the color pattern, which depicts a pink lotus flower on a dark background. One of the features of the model is a dual measurement scale that displays the result in kilograms (black numbers) and pounds (red numbers). The measurement limit is 136 kg, the error remained at the level of 1 kg. The calibration of the scale is carried out in the same way as in the previously considered scale model.

The advantages of the model include a simple and reliable design, low price and stylish appearance. Among the shortcomings, some respondents indicated too small numbers on the scale.

We recommend the Scarlett SC-BS33M043 balance as a simple and practical device with good measurement accuracy (within its class) and at an affordable price.

Advantages

  • They are inexpensive.

  • Good accuracy.

  • Stylish design.

Flaws

  • Small numbers on the scale (according to consumer reviews).

Medisana 40461 PSD

Rating: 4.9

Medisana 40461 PSD

The review is completed by the Medisana 40461 PSD model from a well-known German manufacturer that produces professional and household appliances for health. The scales are made in Germany and have a three-year official warranty.

The model belongs to the high price segment, and its cost is more expensive than most inexpensive electronic scales (and even some popular models with a body mass analyzer). What is so remarkable about this device?

The first thing that catches your eye is the original and non-standard appearance. The model is made in retro style and looks more like old hospital equipment than a modern measuring device.

The second important point is a huge dial with a contrasting scale, which occupies almost the entire upper part of the case. This allows you to visually track the measurement results.

The third feature is an all-metal case, which gives the product increased mechanical strength and resistance to stress. The scale has a measurement limit of 150 kg, which makes it a universal solution for almost all users.

The upper part of the metal case has a rubberized embossed coating, which allows you to comfortably stand on the scales with bare feet.

Unlike most models of competitors, these scales can be used not only at home, but also in the professional field (sports clubs, medical institutions). They are designed for high loads and intensive use.

According to the reviews of equipment owners on Yandex.Market, the model has a rating of 4.7, and 89% of people recommend it for purchase. Among the positive aspects, it is worth noting the high measurement accuracy, metal case, true German quality and original design. The disadvantages of some users include high cost and a not very large platform.

Low measurement error, durable metal case, real German quality and stylish retro design allowed the Medisana 40461 PSD balance to take one of the leading positions in its product group.

Advantages

  • Big dial.

  • Accurate measurements.

  • Metal case.

  • Rubberized platform.

Flaws

  • High price.

  • Not a very large platform area (according to consumer reviews).
