The best bathroom scales for 2021

The best bathroom scales are not only affordable, but they can also tell you metrics like your body fat percentage, muscle composition, how your weight today compares to last month, and so much more.

To help you pick the right scale for you, we’ve spent hours examining the latest models and connecting with manufacturers to get a feel for their newest devices. We’ve reviewed the best bathroom scales, and we’re already doing jumping jacks about some of the newest features. With today’s scales, you can get reports about BMI, body fat percentage, muscle composition, and even body cardio reports for health. Even better, you can connect via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and receive customized reports. Check out our picks for the best smart scales below.

Withings Body+

The Withings Body+ scale and its app.

The Withings Body+ scale is a great choice if you’re looking to expand your knowledge of your own body. Within a sleek design, it measures weight, BMI, muscle mass, and fat percentage — and that’s just to begin with. The scale also has a user-friendly app that can collect all information and allow you to track weight history over time (no need to plug in numbers; the scale will automatically update the app when you weigh in). It also supports up to eight users, so everyone in the family can have their own profile.

The Withings Health Mate App connects to more than 100 fitness apps, including Apple Health, Beeminder, Google Fit, Fitbit, and LoseIt. There are also several neat extra features, including a pregnancy tracker for those expecting and a baby mode for weighing the very smallest. If you’re more interested in looking shredded, you’ll appreciate the water percentage tracker, which also helps you keep properly hydrated. There are even weather forecasts and daily step trackers for those preparing for a run! Plus, if you use any Alexa devices, the scale is Alexa-compatible with a skill that offers motivation, progress updates, and more.

Finally, the Withings Body+ scale has excellent battery life: Four AA batteries will last up to two years without needing a replacement.

Eufy Smart Scale C1 with Bluetooth

The Eufy Smart Scale C1 with Bluetooth.

If you’re looking for an extremely affordable smart scale and a holistic approach to health, try Eufy’s C1, which you can buy for around $30. Connect it to your phone via Bluetooth, and it’ll track a bunch of different measurements to help you meet your fitness goals: Body fat percentage, body mass index, water, basal metabolic rate, visceral fat, lean body mass, bone mass, muscle mass, and, of course, weight.

Cheaper options like the C1 typically aren’t compatible with as many fitness apps as the more expensive competitors. The C1 works with the Eufy Life app, which currently connects with Apple Health, Google Fit, and Fitbit.

Up to 16 users can be on one account, so your entire family can use the Eufy Smart Scale C1. Plus, features like an anti-slip top plate and rounded corners make the scale safer and more user-friendly. Heck, since this scale costs less than a couple of large pizzas, why not give it a try (and forgo the pizza)?

Greater Goods Body Composition Scale

Greater Goods is a company on a mission: The brand gives a portion of proceeds from the sale of every product to a variety of charities. Buy a kitchen gadget and you’ll fund meals for children in the care of the Global Orphan Project. Buy a bathroom product such as the Wi-fi Scale, and you’ll help Love146 provide medical care to survivors of trafficking.

The Body Composition Scale (listed on Amazon with the epic name of “GreaterGoods Digital Body Fat Weight Scale, Body Composition, BMI, Muscle Mass & Water Weight”) tracks a host of metrics around your weight, revealing data in a striking blue display screen easily readable from a distance.

We had some challenges setting up the Greater Goods scale — a handful of units carried a defective Wi-Fi chip, and we got the golden ticket. The company’s tech support was responsive and very helpful, and such units should be long-cleared from the market by the time you read this. Great products serving a greater good — how can you go wrong?

Renpho Bluetooth Bodyfat Scale

The Renpho scale excels at doing a whole lot at a very affordable price — it includes 13 different measurements, including weight, BMI, body fat, and much more.

You don’t have to use the scale with an app, but if you do, it’s compatible with Samsung Health, Fitbit, Apple Health, and Google Fit, along with Apple Watch. As long as you connect this model with the right apps, it will do a good job of helping you reach the goals that you set. It can also independently chart your progress over days, weeks, months, and years. The Renpho scale is rated at up to 396 pounds and requires three AAA batteries.

FitTrack Dara Smart Scale

The FitTrack Dara Smart Scale and app.

The FitTrack is an affordable scale with a no-nonsense app that logs regular measurements for easy body tracking. The dual-frequency technology used by the scale can track up to 17 different measurements, including popular options like body mass, obesity, and muscle mass.

We also like that the app offers a couple of different modes for more unique situations, including an infant mode for weighing babies and an athlete mode for those who want to maximize the results of their training. The Dara scale is also family-friendly with the ability to track eight different users, their settings, and their key indicators. If you want to expand into the FitTrack ecosystem, the brand also has a smart watch called the Atria.

Wyze Scale

The Wyze Scale and its app.

Based on the name alone, it’s clear the biggest advantage you’ll gain with the Wyze Scale is its ability to pair with the Wyze platform and Wyze app. This device also allows you to connect with other Wyze-compatible programs, like Apple Health, Google Fit, and more. For the people who have never used Wyze before, that’s okay. You’ll still get an extremely effective smart scale, accurate glass sensor, and comprehensive weight analysis results straight from your device. 

The Wyze scale helps keep track of your fat percentage, heart rate, lean body mass, and nine other metrics to get an accurate look at your health and weight from a bigger picture. With protection level measurements, body water percentages, and basal metabolic rate tracking, this scale is also a great choice for serious bodybuilders too. You can count on accurate and detailed readings. This scale has a social component to help you stay motivated on your fitness journey. The device has space for up to eight different profiles, so you and other friends or family members can keep each other motivated and accountable.
