I’ve been using a Nokia scale for several years. I just upgraded to the Nokia Body Cardio and really like the insight. It automatically uploads to Apple health and then can be pulled into various fitness apps.
I’d suggest looking at your trends over time, like everything numbers don’t always tell the true story. What really matters is how you feel and how you feel you look, not an arbitrary number on a scale.
I use a simple €25 Bluetooth scale that measures my weight and body fat / water / muscles percentages. It also calculates my BMI. Weight, body fat, and BMI are automatically transferred to HealthKit.
I have been measuring (daily) for more than a year now and I’m lucky that I’m at a healthy BMI with a pretty constant weight (hardly any outliers). I thought that was the case, but it’s nice to see that confirmed in a trend graph in the Health App.
The Apple Watch might support that luck… (I try to complete the rings everyday)
I got a “Xiaomi Bluetooth 4.0 Smart Weight Scale” - writes the data directly into Apple Health. In use for over a year now, no problems. For Nokia i’am not sure, because they sold the Health-business back to Withings.
Used before a normal scale, entered the data into workflow to get them into Apple Health. But the automatic way now its much easier.
I’m using an old-fashioned scale and the iOS app Scelta. Scelta gamifies weight-tracking. It’s a dumb idea but it’s working for me — down 8 pounds since April. Moreover, it’s helping me maintain a good weight now.
I’ve been using a Withings for years now. The Withings app was horrible, got a lot better, then Nokia took over and forced me to switch to a new app (Health Mate) which was worse than horrible. It didn’t work and often crashed.
Over a few months, the app improved, and now it’s pretty good. I rarely use the app unless there’s a problem or I need to change the batteries on the scale. You have to set up the scale all over again when you remove the batteries, which is ridiculous.
Other than those glitchy app years, it’s been reliably sending data to Apple’s Health app, which is all I care about.
