Product Review

Scales are an essential tool for weight management. Today, there are ordinary scales and there are "smart" scales. When you step on an ordinary scale, it tells you your weight - that's it. When you step on a smart scale, it tells you your weight, your body mass index, your water retention, your metabolic age, your bone density and so much more. The latest smart scales automatically syncs this information to your smartphone so you can easily track your progress. This particular smart scale by Wyze tracks 12 essential body metrics - weight, lean body mass, metabolic age, body fat %, muscle mass, bone mass, body water %, protein level, basal metabolic rate, BMI, visceral fat and heart rate - for up to 8 family members. It is designed to automatically identify each unique user and sync that user's measurements directly to their smartphone.

In traditional Wyze fashion, it does nearly everything as well as, or better then, its competitors yet it costs less. Setting up the scale is easy. Once you unbox the scale, you insert the 4 AAA batteries (included), install the Wyze app (if you haven't already), connect the app to the scale via bluetooth, and step on the scale. First time users will have to step on and off the scale a few times to get the scale to calibrate for them specifically. After that, everything is pretty much automatic. All measurements are synced to your smartphone as soon as you open the Wyze app. The app itself is very simple to navigate and all the information provided is pretty easy to understand. Additionally, each number has a little blurb that explains what that measurement means.

The biggest flaw to this scale is it's only available in black so footprints will be visible. Overall, Amazon users were thrilled with this purchase giving it 4.7 out of 5 stars with over 750 reviews.
