This digital scale measures 13 biometrics, including body fat, muscle mass and BMI. Want to track your progress? You can sink the scale with your phone using its app where you can store all your measurements.

This little scale packs a weight-tracking punch — it does more than just spit out your weight in numbers. It goes a little bit deeper with its measurements. It tracks 13 biometrics — it can measure your body fat, your muscle mass and your BMI!

If you're serious about tracking your health, it can connect to Apple Health, Google Fit and Fitbit so you can see your progress from month to month, week to week or day to day.

If aesthetics are important to you, it has an LCD display that lights up when you step on it. It's also made with sleek tempered glass that won't easily crack or shatter and can handle up to 400 pounds/180 kilograms. Yep, that means it can show you your weight in both metric and imperial units! It also delivers accurate results, thanks to the four sensors it's equipped with.

Still not convinced this is the smart scale for you? There are 40,000 shoppers that gave it five-star reviews, that might convince you.

Some shoppers are blown away by the different things you can measure.

"Unbelievable!" wrote one rave reviewer. "Of the many scales that I've owned over the course of a lifetime, this weight scale is the crown jewel of them all. On one hand, if all you crave is a basis scale, it is that. It gives you an accurate measure of your weight. However, along with the app, you can see a picture of yourself in numbers. Specifically, in addition to the weight, it provides information on your BMI (Body Mass Index), Body Fat Percentage, Subcutaneous Fat, Visceral Fat, and Muscle Mass, among eleven other metrics. Learning how these numbers contribute to your Metabolic Age will spark you to change your habits or to maintain your present form."

"This scale tells you SO much more than your weight," raved another delighted shopper. "I’m so obsessed with it. It’s an important tool to any weight loss or gaining journey and it’s going to be a staple in my house from now on. Well done!"

Others love how accurate this scale is.

"I don’t normally get excited about a scale, but this one was amazing," an enthusiastic shopper shared. "I’ve always hated digital scales because it seemed like you could weigh multiple times in a row and get completely different results. This one is not like that. I moved it, recalibrated it, got the same result. Did it again, got the same result. Took off my watch, did the same thing, it went down a tick."

"The scale is accurate to the T," wrote another satisfied customer. "Other scales I have use if I weigh myself 3 times in a row I will get slightly different weight. Although the weight variance with other scales are minute it makes a big difference to me to have exact accuracy. $20 dollars is nothing for an accurate efficient scale. AWSOME DEAL!"

"Cruel but accurate," wrote another satisfied shopper. "Yea, so I was feeling a little soft after the 3 months of lockdown, and after going back to the gym, I wanted to know my body composition breakdown.... It really does help to chart my progress. Am I gaining muscle weight? water weight? or that horrid fat? And if it is fat, is it subcutaneous or visceral? I use the results to help me sculpt my body, exercise, water intake, and diet better. It's a great tool."
