5 of the finest smart scales to trace and improve your body weight

Smart scales are similar to "dumb" ones in that they lay on the floor and dish up your body weight when you stand on them. This is a concept ripe for improvement, thanks to advancements in sports tracking technology.

Smart scales sync up with fitness and health tracking apps on your smartphone and deliver detailed monitoring of changes in your body composition over time, including advanced metrics like BMI, sceletal muscle, bone mass, water weight, and pretty much everything else related to your body mass.

They are also able to assist in planning an exercise or diet regime and monitor your progress toward weight loss or gain goals. They are priced in the ballpark of $100 and are widely available, so if you are interested in one, check out the five products we've rounded up below.

It also tracks your full body composition with weight, BMI, total body fat and water percentage plus bone and muscle mass.
