Mi smart scale design

White LED displayScale displays weight onlyBattery powered (4 AAA batteries, not supplied)

The mi Smart Scale has a lovely, minimalist thiết kế that belies its budget price tag. It’s not just a plate of glass plonked onto some feet: its underside curves pleasingly up khổng lồ meet its shiny, tempered glass surface, & the display is in bright trắng LEDs. In the centre of the scale is a discreet, mirrored mi logo và in the corners, four silvery discs.


If you’re not familiar with smart scale technology, here’s how it works. When you stand on the discs with bare feet, a small electrical charge is sent up into your body. By measuring the resistance it encounters, the scale is able to bản đồ your body toàn thân composition.

You can’t feel it and it’s perfectly safe for most people, although anyone with a pacemaker or other medical implant should speak khổng lồ their doctor before using one.

Smart scales aren’t necessarily perfectly accurate in determining your body’s makeup but as long as they’re consistent, they can be a really useful part of a fitness journey. If your motivation is ebbing, opening the ứng dụng to view your progress can give you a real boost.

But the mày scale does claim weighing accuracy at least, with a stated precision of 100g. While testing it, we compared it lớn other scales & believe that it was on target. However, it does take a couple of attempts khổng lồ calibrate properly, so prepare yourself for some unlikely numbers the first time you step onto it.

The mi scale is powered by 4 AAA batteries. If you’re thinking of buying it, stick a pack of batteries in your basket as well – because it doesn’t come with them. That’s really the first sign that you’re looking at a budget scale.


Using the ngươi scale

Bluetooth only connectionUp to lớn 16 profiles13 body measurements

The scale works via Bluetooth và doesn’t have a Wi-Fi option. That means you’ll need lớn have the app open to log a weigh-in. Still, on the plus side, that means there’s no annoying Wi-Fi syncing stage. It just works instantly.

At your first weigh-in, you can create a profile for yourself. The scale can support up khổng lồ 16 separate profiles và without a Wi-Fi option there’s less of a chance that the stats will be sent khổng lồ the wrong account. Just make sure that other family members who use the scale aren’t nearby and on the ứng dụng when you weigh in.


The scale itself will only display your weight (you can choose between kg and lbs) but the ứng dụng will also tell you your BMI, body toàn thân fat percentage, muscle mass, protein & water percentage, bone mass, visceral fat, body age and ideal body toàn thân weight.

Usefully, it’ll also give you your basal metabolic rate, which lets you see how many calories your body needs a day lớn maintain its current weight. (Less usefully, the ứng dụng describes your toàn thân type, with weirder options being “thick-set” and “lacks exercise”. This seems unnecessary & worse, users may find it insulting or off-putting.)

The ứng dụng also defines the key stats và lets you know whether they’re in a normal range or not, by separating them into metrics that need your attention or into goals reached. There’s also a “history” section with clear, easy lớn read charts to lớn follow your progress.

All of this makes it a solid option for the general user but where the tiện ích really comes into its own is for people who are already xiaomi ecosystem users. If you use a mày Band or a mày watch, you’ll already have the ngươi Fit app và that means your other health stats, including sleep & exercise tracking, are just a tab away.

Price & availability

The Mi toàn thân Composition scale is priced at £29.99 in the UK and $40 in the US (although you’ll be able to buy it for around $10 less), making it a very affordable option.

The premium Withings smart scale, by comparison, retails for around £129/$149. What you’ll get for that is a much more comprehensive on-scale display, rechargeable battery power, plus heart rate and heart health information. If you’re already a Withings user, an investment like that makes sense but for most people, the more budget-friendly option will be enough.

Verdict

A USB charging option would be preferable khổng lồ battery power and it would be nice to lớn see more measurements on the scale itself but if you can compromise on these points, the Mi body toàn thân Composition Scale 2 is a good buy for anyone: it’s very reasonably priced và well designed.


However, if you’re already a ngươi smartwatch or fitness band user, it’s highly recommended.
