5 Best Digital Scale Reviews

These best digital scale reviews comprise 5 of the most worthwhile modern scales on the market right now. Equipped with precision gauges and often automated functions, these scales offer the latest in physical condition monitoring. Of course, you have to keep in mind that they’re all bound by a specific Achilles’ heel in that they won’t give you precise readings if you use them on a carpeted surface. Still, given that most people keep these on tiled bathroom floors, that shouldn’t be much of a problem.

Mosiso CF351BT

Capable of turning on and shutting down automatically, the CF351BT from Mosiso also comes packed with Bluetooth connectivity for pairing with a logging app on your smartphone. It can give you your weight, BMI, BMR, body water percentage, body fat percentage, visceral fat percentage, and bone mass measurement.

Pros

  • Sleek and stylish
  • Consistent readings
  • Very large LCD screen

Cons

  • Somewhat on the big side

It may seem pricey, but this is a whole lot of scale. Not only does this monster take your weight but it can also give you a ton of other health metrics that include your BMI and your body fat percentage. This makes it ideal for the health buffs as it really does deliver a lot of value for people who want to keep an eye on as many indicators of physical health as possible. Just keep in mind that it’s one of the bigger scales out there, though.

EatSmart Precision Premium Scale

This scale has automated step-on technology, automated shutdown, and automated calibration. It departs from most of its competition by using a non-slip plastic plate fused to an aluminum base, and that makes it somewhat more knock-resistant than many other scales nowadays. It has a 3.5 in display.

Pros

  • Plastic top plate makes it less fragile than tempered glass scales
  • Huge display
  • 2 year warranty

Cons

  • Has some minor fluctuations

EatSmart makes some popular scales and this one is a great example. Available for a reasonable price, this plastic and aluminum scale offers a lightweight but super durable form that can still keep up with the modern looks of its tempered glass rivals. It’s easy to use, has a fantastic display, and is reasonably accurate. It sees minor fluctuations by about (0.2 lbs or so), but most people won’t mind that, especially considering everything else it offers.

Weight Gurus Bluetooth Smart Connected Scale

Another Bluetooth Smart-capable scale, this Weight Gurus product helps you keep track of your data by sending it to an appropriate app on your mobile. It takes your weight, BMI, body fat percentage, bone mass percentage, water weight, and lean mass percentage. It also has automatic user detection for multi-user settings. Its gauges can take measurements at gradations of 0.1 lbs.

Pros

  • Precise
  • Very slim
  • Great user identification function

Cons

  • Restricted to users 10 years old and above

Another of the mid-ranged priced scales, this nevertheless offers much the same advanced metrics and functions as the other similarly priced digital scales on this list, so you know you’re getting real value for your money. The user detection function is especially nice if you share the scale with several household members—that way, the scale can log the right measurement history for each user without confusing them.

Utopia Scales USJK-B01-1

This scale offers readings in pounds, kilos and stone. It uses a CR2032 lithium battery, and also has a low battery indicator. The top is made of 6 mm thick tempered glass and the scale automatically shuts itself down if it goes for 15 seconds without activity. It takes measurements in increments of 0.2 lbs.

Pros

  • Rubber stopper at base works beautifully
  • Very stylish
  • Very cheap

Cons

  • Rather poor instructions come with it

This is a relatively easy scale to work as long as you remember to turn it on (there’s a switch in the battery case!), so the issue with the instructions really shouldn’t turn you against it. It’s also pretty good-looking, quite accurate, and overall a great performer. However, here’s the real kicker – it’s very cheap!. That makes it one of the absolute best scales you can get in our book.

Smart Weigh Precision Ultra Slim Digital Bathroom Scale

This very wide, 12x13in scale has step-on and automatic shutdown technology, a modern style, a backlit display, and the ability to take measurements in kilos, pounds, and stone. It also comes with a 2 year warranty.

Pros

  • Ultra-slim profile
  • Quite affordable
  • Sleek look

Cons

  • Some have reported occasional minor inconsistencies in theirs

This is a nice scale for the entry level price, even if some have noticed an occasional fluctuation in the weights they get when stepping on and off it in successive weighing attempts. The discrepancies are small enough to be generally negligible (anywhere from 0.2 lbs to 0.4 lbs), although those who want more precision may be annoyed by them. The point should be made, though, that the vast majority of digital scales have this issue. On the whole, this is a solid product with a lot to like about it, especially its price.

Summary

Depending on what you’re looking for, the top product here can be one thing or another. For the health buffs, for instance, the best buy is most likely either the Mosiso model or the Weight Gurus one. While both seem pricy compared to the rest of the scales in this lineup, they’re actually terrifically affordable for scales in their category (ones capable of taking all the measurements they do).

However, not everyone really needs Bluetooth connections for a scale, and you might not even care to know your body fat percentage.  As such, for most casual buyers and the average person on a budget, the best buy in the list will be the Utopia product for its sheer value for money.
