Following a weight loss or physical activity program that's giving you uncertain results? Unsure of where to start when planning a course of fitness action? Never be left in the dark about your health again. New smart scales available in the USA are capable of measuring so much more than your weight allowing you to be as informed and effective as possible in your chosen lifestyle.
Here's our list of the best smart scales and body analyzers to buy in 2016
Best Smart Scale #1: QardioBase
The QardioBase is dedicated not only to getting accurate weight readings but also analyzing your entire body. This device finally clarifies your weight gain or loss. Are you burning fat or gaining muscle? Are you actually losing weight or are you just losing water? The QardioBase will let you know and give you an indicative smile while doing so. You can also use the app to set goals and track progress with easily readable charts and graphs. This scale will know you so well that it will be able to recognize you despite use by other members of the same household. With smart feedback in addition to traditional modes, your body is finally much more than a number.
The second scale on our list uses cutting-edge technology to give users the knowledge they need to live happier and healthier lives. The Body Cardio brings a vital new heart health metric, standing heart rate plus pulse wave velocity, to the table so that you can keep tabs on your own cardiovascular health and have the information you need to make conscious improvements. With the help of the Health Mate app you can now view your weight, BMI plus body fat, water percentage, muscle mass, and bone mass on your smart phone.
The app also has its own smart capabilities. Once you weigh-in and the app receives a pulse wave velocity reading, the app takes your age into account and informs you as to whether or not the reading was optimal or not and provides you with tips on how to improve your health. You may also set your own weight goals and receive corresponding coaching.
Bonus scale features include local weather forecast and a step tracker when paired with a Withings activity tracker or the app’s built in tracker. Finally, this scale can recognize up to 8 separate users automatically, making it a healthy investment for every member of the family.
The Under Armour Health Box, a bundle deal available in the USA, has everything you need to stay on top of your own fitness. First, you have the UA Band.

It will also alert you when you’ve been inactive too long and syncs with UA Record for real-time data.
The UA Heart Rate is a heart rate monitor designed to give you the most accurate heart rate reading possible during even your toughest and sweatiest workouts. Besides basic heart rate, this monitor can also calculate the intensity of your workout and the calories burned. Water resistant and comfortable, this heart rate monitor also easily syncs with UA Record for accurate data tracking.
The UA Scale tracks your weight, body fat percentage and progress over time, easily syncing with UA Record where you can create your own profile to store data and goals. The scale easily recognizes your profile based on weight and can have up to 8 different users. Bonus features include an LED screen display with speaker notifications and automatic power on and off modes based on weight applied.
Fitbit Aria is here to help you stay on track of your fitness goals by tracking your weight, lean mass, body fat percentage, and BMI. Aria, like the other contenders on this list, can be used by up to eight individual users so that the whole family can participate in good health.

Safe, low-level electrical signals are shot from foot electrodes throughout the body. Quick and non-invasive, this is also one of the most thorough and reliable ways to measure body composition and is clinically comparable to DEXA (dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry) and hydrostatic (underwater) weighing. Data retrieved includes weight, body fat percentage, body water percentage, muscle mass, physique rating, basal metabolic rate, metabolic age, bone mass, visceral fat, and BMI.

FDA and CE approved in the USA and Europe, this scale meets or exceeds rigorous accuracy standards making it extremely accurate. When it comes to accessing and analyzing the data, the iHealth Core is compatible with most Android and iOS mobile devices.
Last but not least on our list is the Wahoo Balance. This scale tracks your weight and BMI to analyze your progress over time and help you achieve your fitness goals. With the help of the Wahoo Wellness app, you can set goals, add multiple users, and view highly accurate charts and graphs of your progress over time.
