Renpho Bluetooth Smart Scale Review
We purchased the Renpho Bluetooth Smart Scale over a month ago and I wanted to report our experience with it. We have been very impressed with this scale, especially for the price. It has been a very reliable scale. What is particularly impressive is the amount of data that it automagically provides based on nothing more than your weight and the electrical contact pads. You do need to be barefoot for the scale to work properly, though it will work with socks too, just perhaps not quite as accurately. It will weigh you with shoes, but you don't get any other data other than weight if you do that.
If you use it properly, it provides you a wealth of data that it tracks over time for you, via an app that you install. When you setup the app you create an account, so it maintains your data when you log back in even if you lose the app. The data points that it tracks include:
- Body Weight
- Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Body Fat Percentage
- Body Water Percentage
- Skeletal Muscle
- Fat-free Body Weight
- Muscle Mass
- Bone Mass
- Basal Metabolism
- Subcutaneous Fat
- Visceral Fat
- Body Age
That is a very impressive list of data that is extrapolated from seemingly little information, yet in my experience the numbers are very close to reality, and it's awesome to see those results graphed over time.
This scale can be used my multiple people. The normal way to use it is to open the app on your phone, then sit your phone to the side so you aren't adding it to your weight, and step on the scale, which will then display your weight and transmit the data via bluetooth to your app. You can also use the scale without your phone, and the next time you open the app and the scale is on it will transmit the older data to your phone as well. In that case, it will match up the data to the right person based on weight, and it will ask you if it's unsure. Many people can use this scale, just close the app when you're done weighing and the next person can open the app and weigh. It works quite well.
The only negative is that the resolution is only one-fifth of a pound, meaning that it will display only every other tenth of a pound, not every tenth of a pound. But that's not a deal breaker and for the price, it's still a good buy. It will measure up to 396 pounds, so that's high enough for most people. It takes 3 AAA batteries which lasted us just over a month with probably 4-6 weigh-in's a day on average.
Overall I would definitely recommend this scale. Please like, subscribe, and click the bell!
