Choosing a bathroom scale seems like it should be a fairly straightforward purchase, but there are a surprisingly large number of options available. Thanks to advancements in technology, many scales go beyond just measuring weight and now provide information on body fat, calorie intake, and more. For some people, this extra information can nudge them toward their health goals, while for others a basic scale is best. Besides what you want it to measure, you'll also have to think about where you will put it, so design and size are also something to keep in mind. Here are the best bathroom scales that will work well for you and your family.
Our Top Picks
Best Overall: EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale
Digital scales are great if you want a quick reading of your weight, and reviewers say that the EatSmart Precision scale is at the top of its game (it’s gained over 20,900 5-star reviews on Amazon). Users say that the tempered glass scale is easy to calibrate, consistent in its measurements and attractive to boot.
There’s no need to tap the scale to turn it on. You simply stand on it and—voila—your weight appears in seconds. A backlit LCD display ensures that you’ll be able to view the reading even in poorly lit bathrooms. This unit can measure up to 400 pounds.
Best Analog: Conair Extra-Large Dial Analog Precision Scale
If you prefer a no-frills scale or are tired of changing the batteries on a digital model, a basic analog scale is for you. The Conair features an oversized, easy-to-read rotating dial, and the large (13’’ x 7’’) platform is constructed from a non-slip, pebbly material, making it safe to weigh yourself if you’re wet from a shower or bath.
Owners of this scale say that the old-fashioned shape is bulky and heavy, but explain that this is part of the appeal, since its heft ensures that the scale won’t slide out from underfoot (the device has a maximum weight limit of 350 lbs). The retro style will look great in both traditional and modern bathrooms.
Best Body Fat Scale: Nokia Body+ - Body Composition Wi-Fi Scale
Scales that analyze full body composition give you a more complete picture of your health. After all, there’s more to your well-being than how much you weigh. If you’ve been strength training and adding on healthy muscle, for example, your body weight might go up. This Nokia scale goes above and beyond by monitoring weight, body fat, water percentage, muscle mass, and body mass (it even informs you about the weather—seriously). It then syncs your information via WiFi or Bluetooth to an accompanying app so that you can view your ups and downs over time.
Best Smart Scale: Fitbit Aria 2 Wi-Fi Smart Scale
More and more scales sync to your phone these days, allowing you to check on your weight loss progress when away from home. The Fitbit Aria 2 is one of them, using WiFi to transfer your weight data (including weight, lean mass, and body fat percentage) to a Fitbit app. Not only can you view your weight trends over time on the app, but you can also track exercise, log food, and set health goals.
Best for Calorie Tracking: TAYLOR 720941033W Digital Glass Cal-Max Scale
Wondering how much you should eat in order to maintain your current weight? This Taylor scale has an answer. Input your height, age, and fitness level and the scale will analyze those numbers against your weight to come up with a recommendation on how many calories to consume.
Users say that the tempered glass scale, which has a 440 lb. capacity and a 12’’ x 13.5’’ platform, is great for larger people. They also compliment the sleek style, which looks nice in any room.
Best for Accuracy: Greater Goods Backlit Digital Body Weight Bathroom Scale
Raise your hand if you’ve done this: You step on the scale, don’t like the reading, so you get off and try again until a number appears that you’re happy with. With this Greater Goods scale, those days are done (for better or worse!) thanks to four weighing sensors that work together to ensure an accuracy of +/- 0.2 lb. Users say that this spot-on digital device—which supports up to 400 lbs.—is consistent with its readings.
Even better, this is a product that gives back. A portion of proceeds from the purchase goes toward Love146, an organization that fights to end child trafficking and provides care for survivors.
Best for Travel: NewlineNY Mini Travel Bathroom Scale
Whether you live in a small apartment or are a frequent flier, a pint-sized scale will work well with your lifestyle. The NewlineNY Mini scale clocks in at just 1.5 lbs. (it’s 12.2’’ x 6.3’’ x 0.8’’), allowing it to easily tuck into luggage or tight spaces.
Reviewers say that despite its small size, the scale can still accommodate large adults (FYI, it’s normal for your feet to hang off the edges when you weigh yourself), and that they’ve taken it on cruises, airplanes, the gym and more. Basically, wherever you go, this compact scale can go too.
