Review: Beets BLU Smart Scale

I'm a bit of an all or nothing person. I'm like this in most  aspects of my life. I ether put my everything into something or I don't pay a second thought to it.

The same goes for the way I use scales. I either jump on the scales every day or I stay well away for weeks, months sometimes! Since being on my mum bod mission I do weigh myself most days. I've heard in the past that it's not ideal to do it so often but daily motivation helps me, especially when faced with decisions like having salad for lunch or not going in for that 3pm chocolate bar.

I recently came across a set of smart scales by Beets BLU that really could give me my 'all' when it comes to everything I may want in a scale. They look great and connect by bluetooth via an iPhone app. The app not only records and tracks all your weigh-ins but it also tells you your BMI, fat & muscle percentage, lean body mass, body water and even bones percentage. This is definitely an ALL kind of scale and perfect for me, although slightly scary!

The scales come from Amazon and delivery was easy and speedy. The box included set up instructions on the back and there was also a leaflet inside. I knew what the scales would look like when I saw the online pictures but was still delighted at the unboxing. They looked so slick, stylish and shiny when I took them from the box and they matched my monochrome bathroom perfectly!



I spent about 20 minutes slightly confused by the set up because it's not clear with the instructions I had but after a quick check online I realised I was totally over complicating things by trying to pair the device to my phone when it's so simple, you don't even need to do that. Once the app is downloaded on your phone the scales and app speak instantly via bluetooth - nothing more for you to do!

Beets Blu Smart Scale Instructions

  • Download the app from App store or Google play (app is compatible to iPhone4S upwards, iPad3 or Android with OS 5.0 and Bluetooth 4.0 hardware)
  • Pop in a few basic details in the app to set it up
  • Throw in 4 x AAA batteries at the back of the scales
  • Set your scale up on a hard flat surface - a bathroom floor is ideal
  • Step on your scales and your weight will appear on the scales
  • Wait for the beep, open your app and within seconds you other measurements will appear showing todays results and your previous ones so you can compare your progress.

The app settings will automatically show you the most popular measurements which are weight, body fat percentage, muscle mass, body water and BMI but if you tap on the graph you have the option to also include bones percentage and lean body mass or take any other measurements away. The body water is the line that runs across the screen with the water drop.

Your results can also sync with Apple Health which can talk to your other fitness apps so it saves having to manually input details multiple times.

My Verdict?

I'm loving my Beets BLU smart scales so far. They the perfect addition to my bathroom from a decor perspective. They track so many different measurements and it's good to see how they progress (although I must say my BMI measurement is pretty depressing - there's some motivation for me!). My favourite part is that it instantly records my results and stores the data. I'm a graph kind of girl so seeing the line going in the right direction is the ultimate motivation for me. I'm still very much on a weight loss journey and I'll definitely be binning my old scales and keeping these ones to help me on my way.

My only gripe would be there wasn't one central place for instructions on everything and I had to go to lots of different sources to get clarity on things like how the app works, understanding the graphs and how to configure them. Now that I'm clear on it all it's not a problem and I've tried to include everything in this post so if you do try one out, everything you need to know is here.

The Beets BLU smart scale is currently on sale through Amazon for £49.95 (down from £69.95) with free delivery in the UK.

We are gadget lovers in this house and love anything techy that makes day to day life easier. I would love to hear what your favourite weight loss gadgets are?
