If you’re interested in a wireless scale there are a lot available, from cheap ones to expensive ones and some in the middle.
When you’re looking for a wireless scale there are three thing to look at that are important.
1… Wearables such as FitBit
If you have a wearable such as a Fitbit you’re going to want to go with a compatible scale.
2… Features such as BMI
What you want from the scale such as BMI is important but there are many more metrics a scale can have.
With the many Bluetooth scales available prices can vary widely. The good news is with the many available there is one to fit anyone’s budget.
Our Picks for The Best Wireless and Bluetooth Weight Scale 2017
Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale, Black
One of the most popular wireless scales is the FitBit Aria.
Fitbit is a hugely poplar company and the the Aria is their best scale.
It works really well with Fitbit applications and will have no problems logging your BMI and your body fat percentage. Up to 8 users can log their information.
Most all the scales will measure your BMI with some doing a better job than others. The Aria does a good job with BMI but like the many other smart scales the Body Fat index can be often off.
The body fat percentage measured from smart scales is notoriously faulty.
Wahoo Balance Bluetooth Smart Scale for iPhone and iPad
The Wahoo Fitness balance smartphone scale is unlike some of the other ones and it’s not going to sync via WiFi.
It uses Bluetooth to send information to your phone.
It’s uses the Wahoo fitness wellness App, which is it’s not the greatest application out there but it can send your information to my fitness pal.
The price is lesser than many other units so it is a good smart scale for those looking for a starter or budget unit.
Polar Balance black
The Polar Balance scale is going to sync your information over Bluetooth and not via WiFi.
What’s really cool about this one is that it will send information to the Polar Flow App on your smartphone or to your supported Polar device. If you have the n400 or one of the more recent Polar devices you can actually sink your weight to that.
The Polar has a App for your smartphone that is going to record your weight and your BMI and can have up to 10 users.
It is nice option and it doesn’t just log your information but it’s going to try and create you a little plan to meet your weight goals.
Unfortunately you can’t set up goals for gaining weight but you can set goals for maintaining weight or losing weight over time.
For example say you need to lose four pounds over two weeks, it will guide you through what sorts of foods you should avoid for that two week period. You will also know your progress along the way. They are big into tracking calories and how you’re progressing against your goals.
