Greater Goods Wi-Fi Smart Scale
The best smart scale
This Wi-Fi–enabled scale provides consistently accurate readings, and its app reliably tracked each reading in our testing. It’s also the least expensive Wi-Fi–enabled model we considered.
Note: Greater Goods is discontinuing the Wi-Fi Smart Scale and will be replacing it with an updated version in summer 2021, a company spokesperson told us. According to Greater Goods, the new version of our top-pick scale will have an improved Wi-Fi chip, and Greater Goods will make connection-related improvements to the accompanying app (connectivity issues are the number-one complaint customers have had with this scale). The company says that it will support the existing scale and app indefinitely, and that the work-around for current scale owners who experience connectivity issues will always be freely available. Because this scale has bested the competition for two years running, we continue to recommend it.
The Greater Goods Wi-Fi Smart Scale was more consistent than any other scale we tested, both in accurately registering weight changes and in sending data to its associated app. Because it uses a Wi-Fi connection instead of Bluetooth, you don’t need to have your phone within arm’s reach for the scale to send data to its Weight Gurus app. Compared with other top-rated Wi-Fi scales we considered, this Greater Goods model typically costs about half as much.
Eufy Smart Scale P1
A reliable scale with a user-friendly app
This Bluetooth scale gives consistent readings, and its app is easy to use. But you need to have your phone nearby to record readings, and we confirmed with the company that the scale sometimes recalls previous weights instead of weighing fresh each time.
If the Greater Goods scale is unavailable, we recommend the Eufy Smart Scale P1. It was the second most reliable scale out of all we tested and has a user-friendly app. Unlike the Greater Goods scale, which uses Wi-Fi, the Eufy uses Bluetooth, which requires that you have your phone nearby to send data to the EufyLife app. One particular thing we like: In contrast to the Greater Goods scale, this model doesn’t beep when you use it.
