If you’ve decided that you want to improve your health or lose weight but don’t know where to start, you might want to invest in this scale from Yunmai, a Xiaomi company. It does all the basics and it does them well.
The Yunmai Smart Scale 3 delivers 13 measurements: weight, BMI, body fat percentage, skeletal muscle mass, water, protein, visceral fat index, bone mass, BMR, biological age, fat weight, body fat mass index, and fat-free mass. If your focus is on weight loss, this will give you plenty of information to go on. Just bear in mind that you won’t get any heart health measurements.
On the scale itself, you’ll see your weight and body fat percentage, the rest of the measurements will be sent to the app via Bluetooth. The app is simple, straightforward and easy to use. You can set a body weight goal and, instead of using critical labels to evaluate measurements, it uses red and green zones, which may be less off-putting. You’ll only get trends for weight and body fat percentage though, so it isn’t a good option for people who want to track increases in muscle mass, for example.
It’s a little bit larger than some other budget models at 11.8 x 11.8 inches and it weighs accurately up to 330 pounds. It charges via USB-C, which means there’s no need to buy batteries.
