How much you weigh is not an indicator of health – muscle is heavier than fat, for one. But do your scales take that into account? Probably not if it's one of the classic step on, number appears, step off jobs.
Enter: smart scales. Those babies can measure any number of more accurate variables than just your weight and we've found one that's 39% off on Amazon right now. No need to thank us, just snap up the deal that could transform how you measure your progress and we'll call that square.
Okay, so what else can these smart scales measure besides weight?
- Body fat percentage
- Visceral fat
- Subcutaneous fat
- Muscle mass
- Bone mass
- Skeletal muscle
- Fat-free body weight
- Body water
- BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate)
- Metabolic age
The scales also sync to various phone-based apps such as the Fitbit app, Apple Health and Google Fit which means you can keep all your data in one place.
Why are smart scales better than standard ones?
Well, as we said before, they measure much more than just your relation to gravity – e.g. your weight in stone, pounds or kg.
But they can also stop you growing discouraged if you step on one day and your weight has inexplicably changed from one day to the next. More than that, they can reliably tell you how well you're progressing with your goals.
Want to lose body fat for a more toned appearance? Track your body fat percentage for more accurate progress than solely your weight which takes everything (water, muscle mass, bone mass, fat mass) into account.
Trying to put on muscle and build strength? Note down your muscle mass percentage for an accurate, specific picture of how effective your plan is.
Basically, smart scales give a much more well-rounded picture of how your body's tracking as opposed to just telling you that you weigh X-amount with so much of a sniff of context as to how exactly that weight's made up.
