Takeaway: Large bright display, easy to read graphical chart of weigh-ins and multiple metrics.

I received this scale as a sample from Inevifit, so I could test out its smart features and overall functionality. The scale has a 5-year warranty, and there’s a free mobile app that it works with to save and track your measurements over time. It comes with an instruction manual and registration card to activate the warranty. You can find the mobile app by scanning the QR code on the sticker in the middle of the scale which will launch the Google Play or Apple app store to download it; it’s called Eros Scale. Once that’s done you can remove the sticker on the scale.

The scale’s weight plate is made from durable tempered glass and it measures about 12 inches square and an inch high. At the left and right sides are four metal electrodes, that you stand on to take bioelectrical impedance reading which are used to estimate your body fat content. Basically these contacts send a very small and harmless electrical current through your body and the voltage is measured to calculate your lean and fat percentages since fat has a higher impedance than lean tissue. On the bottom of the scale you’ll find four rubber feet which need to be placed on a level surface to accurately measure your weight. In the middle is the battery bay and the scale requires 3 AAA batteries, which are not included. If you need the barcode to download the app, it’s in the manual and also printed on the spec sticker which indicates the max weight it can measure is 400 lbs, or 180 kg.

Setting up the app takes only a minute after choosing the units you want to use and creating a free account. Then just fill in your profile like age, height, and fitness level. The app can also share data with a fitness tracker like Fitbit or Google Fit. It’ll ask you to choose a device, even though for now there’s only one product in their catalog. Then to pair the scale with the app, all you have to do is step on it, and it’ll pair via Bluetooth. If you’re wearing socks, or you step off the scale immediately after your weight appears, you’ll notice the app will tell you that no bioimpedance is detected. Instead, make sure you’ve got bare feet so your skin makes contact with the electrodes and wait on the scale until you see the zeros running across the LCD stop. Then in the app, your weight and the other 13 metrics will appear. You’ll find those in the hex-shaped boxes below the main weight readout in the app.

The values recorded are weight, BMI, Body Fat, fat-free body weight, subcutaneous fat, visceral fat, body water, skeletal muscle, muscle mass, bone mass, protein, bmr, and metabolic age. Some of these values are measured like weight and body water, while others are calculated using the other data you provided like age and height. If you tap on any individual measurement, it’ll give you a brief explanation of what it is and put your number on a scale so you can understand if the number is desirable, for example, my body fat of 11.8% falls into the typical range for athletes and my visceral fat value of 3 is good because high values can lead to health problems like insulin resistance and high blood pressure.

In the settings you can set a weight goal and body fat percentage goal and the app will tell you on the measurement screen your progress towards that goal. You can track all the measurements in a graph format to see the changes over time. You can view the past week, month or even year of progress, but note that in the year view, the data point for each month displays as the last recorded day of the month and not an average for the month. This is really helpful if you want to see the general trend of your body composition changes after starting a new diet or fitness routine. The measurements are a pretty good estimate of the composition of your body, but don’t expect the numbers to be exactly perfect for each individual reading as your measurements could be affected on a day to day basis based on the time of day, whether or not you ate or exercised prior to stepping on the scale, and whether or not you’re dehydrated. The best way to get an accurate picture of your overall measurements is to get on the scale at the same time each day at the same point in your daily routine.

I’ve been trying the keto diet this past month so I’ve been eating plenty of healthy proteins like fish and vegetables and much fewer carbs. The results in the graph of my weigh-ins shows that my weight is steadily declining except for a coupledays of backslides that were quickly erased. Not only is the weight coming off, but the fat numbers are declining too, and I feel much more energetic and light on my feet, and you can see the difference in my face and around my body. The scale appears to be accurate tracking my weight and progress and it's nice to be able to view and keep tabs on the other metrics too. I'm very thankful to Inevifit for sending me the scale to test and think that it's a great tool for anyone trying to make changes to their health and fitness to track their progress over time.
