On top of that, the unit comes already calibrated and ready to go right out of the box, and can be instantly be calibrated at any point in time just by stepping onto the scale, waiting for the numbers to show up, then stepping off, and then stepping back once the unit has powered down.
It also comes with a full and complete warranty and some of the best customer service in the business, as well as a complimentary body tape measurer for those that want to be track other aspects of their weight loss journey.
What’s not to like
The only negative that we were able to dig up in regards to this particular bathroom scale is that it could be a little bit on the more difficult side of things to power until it is “broken in”. Not a dealbreaker by any stretch of the imagination.
2. EatSmart GetFit
The EatSmart GetFit Digital bathroom scale is not only one of the most accurate bathroom scales on the planet, but it’s also capable of providing vertical information about total body fat percentage, body water percentage, muscle mass percentage, and bone mass density percentages so that users of this platform know exactly when they’re losing fat (or gaining muscle) regardless of how much or how little the actual “weight” they see as changed.
- Auto-calibrating technology
- Step-On Power system to turn the scale on automatically
- Body fat, body water, and muscle mass percentage information
- Tracks the bio-info for 4 people
What’s to like about the EatSmart GetFit
This unit is incredibly simple to use and power on, taking advantage of the company’s patented “Step On Power On” technology. There is no tapping the top of the scale and then waiting for it to power on before you can then step on it to get your measurements – just climb aboard and go!
Auto-calibrating and self-correcting, you won’t ever have to worry about this scale giving you “phony numbers”. As consistent as it gets, this is a scale you know you’ll be able to trust completely.
What’s not to like
A little bit on the more expensive side of things (though compared to the prices of some of the other, not quite as nice units we’ve reviewed it can be seen as a bargain), the only real knock against this bathroom scale is that it’ll set you back about $50.
3. BalanceFrom High Accuracy
One of the more smartly designed bathroom scales we’ve ever seen, the odds are pretty good that this scale is going to look picture-perfect in your bathroom regardless of your design aesthetic. On top of that, this is an incredibly accurate scale (measuring individuals up to 400 pounds/wondered 80 kg) and provides almost instant information about weight directly on its 4.3 inch extra-large LCD readout.
- Has a 400lb capacity
- Includes an oversized (the largest we’ve seen) LCD readout
- Automatic power on technology provides instant feedback
- Extra-long guarantee and warranty from the manufacturer
What’s to like about the BalanceFrom High Accuracy
Powering on just as soon as you step onto this bathroom scale, it will only take about two seconds or so for you to receive critical information about your body weight, right down to a 10thof a pound.
Protected with a 100% satisfaction guarantee that allows you to return this unit for any reason whatsoever – literally any reason – within two years of owning it, you’d have to be at least a bit crazy not to at least consider purchasing this particular setup.
What’s not to like
There have been some questions about the durability of this scale, though the company behind this scale have heard about the complaints and changed their manufacturing process to fix the issues. Still, it would be something to be on the lookout for – you’re still protected by that two-year satisfaction guarantee and warranty, though.
4. GoWISE Ultra Slim
This great bathroom scale includes incredibly sensitive bio impedance analysis technology that accurately estimates body fat, water, muscle, and bone measurements and percentages, displaying them on the oversized LCD readout right alongside the traditional weight measurement.
- One of the best looking and most compact bathroom scale showcased
- Incredibly accurate, with almost instant readings provided on the “see from any angle” LCD readout
- Can accurately weigh individuals up to 400lbs
- Tracks biometric info for up to 4 users
What’s to like about the GoWISE Ultra Slim
This gives individuals that are serious about making the most of their weight loss journey everything that they need to know about their body at any given point in time, helping them make the right adjustments along this weight loss journey to give them the body that they’ve always wanted – the body that they deserve.
Attractively and simply designed, this is a relatively compact bathroom scale that can still accurately measure individuals up to 400 pounds. With a “Body Profile” memory system on board, you can track progress and measurements for up to eight users with ease when you use this particular solution.
What’s not to like
Some customers that have purchased this particular bathroom scale have reported that it has a tendency to “run off the rails” every once in a while, showing error codes on the LCD readout as opposed to the accurate weight and bio impedance information – but then flashing to those details so long as the individual stays on top of the scale.
This glitch has been addressed by the company (and they offer full replacement scales for anyone dealing with this headache), but it may be something that you’ll want to pay attention to.
5. Omega Ultra Slim
There are a lot of customers out there that are absolutely over the moon about the Omega Ultra Slim Digital bathroom scale, and for good reason.
For starters, this bathroom scale instantly powers on when it is step down, with absolutely zero delay whatsoever as far as weight measurement feedback is concerned. On top of that, it’s one of the few scales on this list that includes extra sensitive high precision “G sensors”, sensors that provide feedback on individuals up to 400 pounds (or 180 kg) with an accuracy rating of .002 pounds difference.
We are talking about a real All-Star here!
- Simple, clean, and elegant design to fit any bathroom aesthetic
- 400lb weight capacity
- Includes G Sensors for extreme sensitivity up to .002lbs
- Extremely energy efficient
What’s to like about the Omega Ultra Slim
Customers are also going to be happy with the clean design and the very, very easy to read LED feedback display, providing individuals with up-to-date information about their body in any light condition thanks to the oversized 3.5” screen.
Running off of four AAA batteries (that are included), you shouldn’t have to change the batteries on this device for a year or two – just another reason to make this kind of investment!
What’s not to like
There are a couple of customers that have purchased this scale and reported that their original weight measurements fluctuated wildly every time they stepped on the scale, including when they only stayed off of it for 30 seconds maximum.
Quality-control issues are always a concern when purchasing a bathroom scale, but the manufacturer behind this particular unit has seemed to address these issues as the most recent reviews are pretty glowingly positive across the board.
6. Fitbit Aria Smart Scale
One of the coolest (and most beautifully designed) bathroom scales we’ve ever had the opportunity to review, the new Fitbit Aria scale is truly something special.
Not only is it absolutely jampacked with next generation body measuring and weight tracking technology (including bio impedance technology to measure your body fat, BMI, bone density, muscle mass, and other critical bio criteria), but it also interfaces nicely with the overall Fitbit ecosystem – including the online applications and tools.
This gives you every edge and advantage when it comes time to really build the body of your dreams, tracking your progress across the board absolutely every single step of the way.
- Beautiful industrial design (available in black or white)
- Compact and energy efficient
- Interfaces with mobile devices and applications for fitness tracking
- Bluetooth enabled
What’s to like about the Fitbit Aria Smart Scale
The Fitbit scale pairs perfectly with Fitbit fitness trackers and the mobile application, which gives individuals the opportunity to track all of their progress across the board. Beautifully (and some would say elegantly) designed, there may not be a more attractive bathroom scale on the planet.
The best part about this particular unit is that it connects to mobile devices through Bluetooth, and can interface with multiple software solutions and applications using API technology.
What’s not to like
A little bit on the more expensive side of things (especially compared to some of the other top bathroom scale options that we’ve included on this list), you’re going to have to shell out about $120 or so to get your hands on this next generation piece of weight measurement equipment.
It might seem like quite a bit at first, but when you remember that it uses Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity to interface with a number of different fitness and exercise trackers, tools, and technology, you’re really looking at something special here – something definitely worth the premium level price tag.
7. Omron Full Body Composition Monitor and Scale
Omron products have always been some of the most respected in the weight loss and medical industries, with their blood pressure monitors and their scales/sensors being some of the best options in both of their areas.
This next level Omron body composition monitor and scale is really something special, a combo solution that includes a bio impedance scale to measure seven critically important fitness factors while interfacing directly with a brand-new handheld sensor that measures your BMI, resting metabolism, and a number of other critical details as well.
- Tracks weight measurements for 8 profiles, up to 90 days
- Carries the Omron reputation for high quality manufacturing
- Using multiple tools to track critical biometric details
- Accurately measures BMI and metabolism information to optimize workouts
What’s to like about the Omron Full Body Composition Monitor and Scale
So much more than just a typical or traditional scale, this combo pack is going to be able to provide you with nearly instant feedback about all of your influential biomarkers as you pursue your body transformation journey. With a 90 day memory included, you’ll be able to track your progress (and then export that progress for more long term storage solutions) every single step of the way.
What’s not to like
A bit pricey (and there are some questions about consistency as far as accuracy is concerned), some have balked a little bit about investing in this particular solution.
However, Omron has always been (and likely always will be) one of the innovators in this field, consistently pushing the boundaries of what this kind of technology can do, and this scale/monitor combo pack is a perfect representation of that “corporate personality”.
8. Withings Smart Body Analyzer
If not THE priciest of all the bathroom scales we’ve reviewed it’s definitely one OF the priciest, though you definitely get quite a bit of bang for your buck with this particular investment.
Absolutely everything (and we mean everything) about this bathroom scale has been designed and developed from the ground up to shock and surprise users that decide to purchase it – only in the best ways possible!
- Currently the most advanced bathroom scale on the planet
- Includes biometric tracking tools and technology to measure body fat, water, bone, and muscle percentages
- Includes an air quality and CO2 measuring component
- Automatically uploads all information collected to the cloud for instant (and easy) access
What’s to like about the Withings Smart Body Analyzer
It provides critical biometric details about body weight, BMI, and body fat tracking capabilities, a positional control/recognition system that lets you know that you are in the perfect position to be weighed accurately, a heart rate calibrating system that lets you know when you are really “in the zone”, and air quality tracking system that measures the CO2 levels around you.
And a temperature tracking system that lets you know about any variances throughout the day, tight integration with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity to really open up all of this data across multiple applications and APIs…
… And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
What’s not to like
There are bound to be at least a couple of bugs when you’re talking about a product as innovative as this one, and the first generation of this particular scale had a couple of issues that it was dealing with.
However, this current generation system has come a long way since those early days, and continues to be improved upon regularly still today. Customer service and support is top-notch, regular updates are pushed to this scale via Wi-Fi connection, and there is an incredible guarantee and warranty that customers will be able to take advantage of if they find themselves in a bit of a quandary with their particular scale.
It’s all going to come down to what you’re looking for, what you’re expecting, and what you intend to use your new bathroom scale for. Hopefully you had a chance to check out all of our reviews, and decide to investigate these options a bit further.
We think you’ll be happy with any of them going forward!
