Which scale suits you?

Which personal scale is the right fit for you depends on your intended purpose of use. Are you looking to get a good reading of your fitness progression, monitor your weight-loss goals, or find a scale the whole family can use? The best scale needs to fit your wishes. In addition, it would be a waste of money to pay extra for a scale that displays measurements that don't interest you. In this article, I'll tell you which properties are important for each usage situation.

Monitor diet progress

Diet progress scale

If you're working on a specific weight-loss goal, it's nice to be able to measure your progression accurately. In that case, you're looking for a scale that measures you weight, as well as your BMI and body fat percentage. If you're a true fanatic, a reading of your visceral fat is also a relevant measurement. This is the fat surrounding your organs. If you like to keep an eye on your progress in an app, then a scale with Bluetooth application is the best choice for you.

  • Weight, BMI, and body fat percentage reading
  • Optional: visceral fat reading
  • Optional: pairing with mobile app
