With many positive reviews from happy customers, RENPHO Bluetooth Body Fat Scale is definitely a nice option to consider if you want a reliable body fat analyzer. In this review, we will try to cover all the important aspects of this scale, helping you decide if it’s worth purchasing it. From so many body fat analyzers available these days, it’s highly important to opt for a model that successfully blends accuracy with ease of use and durability. It seems that this model covers them all, but let’s take it step by step and truly convince ourselves before giving the final sentence.
Once you step on the scale, you can find out details related to your weight, body fat and water, muscles and bone mass, sckeletal muscle, protein, basal metabolism, fat-free body weight, and body age. The main purpose of all these measurements is to help you monitor your health and lose weights faster. Nevertheless, except for the weight, you will need your mobile phone to read the measurements. For this, you have to download the RENPHO app which works with iOS 7.0 and Android 4.3 and their up versions. Then, by using Bluetooth connectivity, you can connect your phone to the scale. In order to save your data and track your progress, you need to create a personal profile. What is really great about this scale is that it supports an unlimited number of user profiles. Another great feature that we like is the fact that the scale automatically turns on and off, thus helping extend battery life. Once the battery needs to be replaced, you will see on the display the low battery indicator.
This model is available in black and white and features a sleek and elegant design. It is 11 inches wide, 11 inches long, and 0.8 inches tall. The surface of the scale is made of 5 mm thick tempered glass while the bottom is made of ABS plastic. The metrics are shown on the backlit LED display. For accurately reading the metrics, it features 4 high-precision sensors and 4 electrodes. It can handle users with a weight of maximum 396 pounds/180 kilograms and has an interval of 0.2 pounds/0.05 kilograms. You can change the unit of measurement with the help of the app. It works with 3 AAA batteries which are included.
Setting up and using the scale is pretty simple. Once you download the app, you can start creating your profile by introducing details regarding your age, gender, height, and weight. This step may take a little bit longer as the app is not the most user-friendly one. The scale connects very quickly to your phone which is a great plus. The app also works with Fitbit, Google Fit, and Apple Health. If you want you can use the scale without your phone but only for weighing yourself.
The manufacturer offers a 12-month warranty for the scale. During this period of time, the body fat analyzer will be covered against defects in material and workmanship and it will be repaired or replaced for free.
