Top Smart Scale Picks
Koogeek is a new competitor; so far they have been quite impressive in technological standard and consumer experience. Koogeek has a polished attractive tempered glass appearance. Its blue LED display can present clear data. Users can see 8 indexes in easily understandable graphs: weight, bone mass, lean mass, water percentage visceral fat etc. Koogeek APP is simple to set up, and can be used for Android or iOS 8.0 systems, Bluetooth 4.0 or Wi-Fi. Consumers would be impressed by Koogeek’s goal setting function. Koogeek uses high precision pressure sensors and professional weight calculation chips to measure accurately. Maximum 16 users can be recognized, so users can enjoy family or friends fitness competitions. Users can even see family members’ body data through Koogeek APP! Koogeek can also do baby weighing. Babies can be weighted without staying alone on scale.
Koogeek has done well for consumer services. User guide is available in different languages. Shipment covers the USA and EU. Koogeek also has all-year discount deals on many selling platforms: Amazon USA (coupon 9PRDMZZ6); Amazon UK (coupon C7Z6BTKX); TOMTOP site (coupon KS1-10). Compared to iHealth, Koogeek does not have muscle mass measurement, and Koogeek’s weight range is less than iHealth’s.
Xiaomi is a fast developing enterprise famous for its cellphone. Xiaomi entered the smart scale market in the year 2016. So far Xiaomi only published one model for its smart scale, and it did do some aspects well in scale connectivity. Xiaomi scale can fit Android 4.4, and the scale has competitive price. You can find 50 or 60 dollars Xiaomi scale on Amazon. Like Koogeek and iHealth, Xiaomi also has a modern surface design, LED digital display and easy-use friendly mobile APP.
However, Xiaomi needs to focus more on its scale measurement capabilities. Only body mass index (BMI) and weight are covered in its body healthy index system. Xiaomi scale does not have baby weighing function compared to Koogeek. Xiaomi only has 12 months warranty, which is less than Koogeek brand's 18 months warranty. Although we can easily find Xiaomi scales on Amazon, the company does not have an English version website.
iHealth has the highest price: 130 dollars on its Amazon platform. HS6 is iHealth’s latest model. HS6 can fit Android 4.2 and iOS 7.0 device. However, no bluetooth function can be clearly seen on their official non-Amazon website. Koogeek, Xiaomi and HS6 all have APP analysis, such as fitness goal setting and graphic tracking. HS6 is really heavy and bigger than Koogeek and Xiaomi scales, so it may not be convenient for home store or office use. HS6 has 9 body index measurements, which is one more than Koogeek's scale. However, HS6 can only record maximum 10 users, and no baby weighing function. HS6 has some unstable issues. It displays different weights every time users step on it. HS6 APP may also be hard to connect to Apple devices. iHealth does better than Xiaomi in consumer support, but iHealth is still not as good as Koogeek. iHealth’s international shipment service can send to the USA and within EU, but no discount deals are available on their official site.
Top Smart Scale Conclusion
Koogeek won the top smart scale review fast progress 2016. Overall Koogeek does brilliant in scale connectivity, capabilities and accuracy, consumer and shipment services. Koogeek APP can be easily connected to mobile devices and operates smoothly. In contrast, Xiaomi does especially well in scale APP connectivity for Android platform, and iHealth prefers to target on body index measurements. In fact no matter how “smart” these scales are, you still need to do exercises by yourself. Looking forward to seeing these brands have big sales in coming years.
