I use body composition scales in my job as a dietitian. It’s good to know what a person’s fat and muscle % is so they can come back and compare each time. It sets goals and targets and can provide real motivation.
I was contacted recently to review some Beets Blue Smart Bluetooth Scales, which measure your weight and body composition and send the results automatically to your phone via an app you can download from both the Apple and Android Stores. I was definitely up for this!
The scales arrived and were so easy to set up. It was a case of downloading the app. This is pretty self explanatory. You can add more than more user profile and set it to the correct person prior to taking a measurement. You add details of sex, height, body type and your goals and you are away.
The scales take 4 x AAA batteries which are included. You insert them and the scales are ready to be used. It is important not to rest them on carpet or lino, or basically anything soft as will affect accuracy. If you move the scales you must follow a series of steps on the instructions, which includes stepping on and off, before taking a measurement. However, the instruction list is really short, which is great!
They are so easy to use!!
I wasn’t sure of the accuracy with me being pregnant at the moment but I hopped on and had a go to test it. It did my weight easily and then I had to wait for the scales to send my body composition over to my phone. It did this really quickly. Hubby programmed his details in and set up a profile and he had a turn too.
I am hoping to use these more after the baby has come to monitor my progress a bit, once I am exercising. I’m sure a monster bump will have affected things.
These scales were one of easiest things I have ever set up. It took me about 60 seconds. I cannot comment on the accuracy but at least they will be a benchmark to work from for anyone wanting to set and achieve goals with weight loss or toning up.
I would definitely recommend!
Disclosure – I was provided these scales in exchange for a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Oo, I think I need scales like that. I am fed up with my analogue ones, but I don’t mind it when they tell me Ive lost two pounds when I bend down to read them!
Technology is so incredible. Not sure if I would actually want all that information :/ Will keep this in mind when I am feeling more motivated. Great review. #TwinklyTuesday
Wow these do sound good, I would love to see the composition of muscle vs. fat especially at the moment as I feel smaller from all my running but my weight on the scales isn’t showing it. It does sound a bit complicated though and not sure what floor we would put it on as we have lino in the bathrooms! Great review though hon xx
Ooo I’ve been thinking of getting some scales as I’m trying to get leaner. i don’t have any at the moment but I think they might help to motivate me? I lift weights though and I know muscle weighs more than fat so normal scales wouldn’t do but these might be the right sort to try? xx #TwinklyTuesday
This looks great. I’ve always tried to use fat and muscle % as a barometer of how I’m doing as opposed to just weight. Unfortunately I’m not doing overly well by any scale. #twinklytuesday
This all sounds highly technical – I’m not sure I’d want to know that much detail!! #twinklytuesday
