In order to be able to do fitness in an advanced way, in this guide we will show you the best smart and "Impedance" scales, compatible with Android and iOS. They are therefore patient scales that not only measure the actual weight, but are also able to estimate, through the principle of impedance or impedance, other physical parameters such as the percentages of lean mass (FFM) and fat mass (FM) , the amount of water in the body and much more.
Once purchased it is enough connecting the scale weighs people, via Bluetooth or via Wi-Fi, to our smartphone and start using dedicated apps or fitness apps to manage the collected data.

Best Smart Bathroom Scales
The scales that we will report below can be connected wirelessly to both Android smartphones and iPhones, so that we can collect data with any devices in our possession.
Great technical characteristics are not required, since in fact digital scales have existed for many years: we will only have to be sure that can be connected via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and that they can benefit from the dedicated app.
Some of the best scales can connect to fitness apps without the need to use a dedicated app (very useful if we already use one smartwatch or a smart bracelet for fitness).
Laica Smart Libra
If we don't want to spend too much money on this smart accessory, we can view the Smart lay scale.
By choosing this scale we will have a device with a large backlit display that can measure weight and also calculate fat mass, water retention, skeletal muscle, basal metabolic rate and body mass index, obviously inserting the data relating to the height.
The data can be synchronized via Bluetooth to our smartphone, using the app Laica Home Wellness, available for Android and iOS.
