Real life use

The quality and detail of the Weight Guru wifi scale is noticed immediately as you take it out of the box. It has a great LCD 4.4 inch display, with a neon blue background light, ensuring it is extremely easy to read in any lighting condition.

The main body of the wifi scale is slender and stylish, with a tempered glass design that will look great in any bathroom.

We found the “Auto-On” is the simplest way to use this body fat analyzer. All you need to do is step on the metal conductors and evenly distribute your weight on the scale.

Once you have completed the user set-up, the auto-detection will connect you to your profile. If the device doesn’t  match up to any user profile, then the Weight Guru scale will only display your weight result.

The body composition calculations require your height, activity level, and gender, to be able to calculate, so ensure you input that data beforehand.

Overall review

Overall, the Weight Gurus Bluetooth Smart Connected Body Fat Scale is a lower end, digital scale, but does what it is designed to do.

There are a few little bug bears with the device and the main one if that you need to take a pic of the barcode every time your weight yourself, so that the scale can log your information.

Another small issue is the fact the application doesn’t seem to store bone and water mass, but as mentioned earlier, there are other applications you can download that will log these if that is important for you.

For a relatively low cost, it is certainly one of the better digital scales for those looking for a bargain.

    My partner got me the weight Guru scale for my birthday in the new year as I wanted to measure more than just my weight. Having health issues, it is important for me to check my body vitals everyday and store them so I can identify which foods and medicines are working for me.

    I am not a technical person so my friend helped me set it up so that it knows me when I stand on it. I couldn’t believe how it automatically logs my information and believe me, its a good job the website is user friendly otherwise I would of been lost. If I can use the Weight Guru anyone can. Probably the best gift I ever received.

    My scale tracks my weight just fine, sending it to my iPhone. I am designated U1 and have had no problem. It has been very difficult to get it to work for my wife. We have designated her as U2. We set it up with her iPhone and it will send one weighing to her iPhone then, the next day, it stops recognizing her as U2. We set up the scale exactly the same way as for me. We have set her up as U2 about a dozen times and the initial weigh in is the only one we can get the scale to recognize. We are significantly different in weight so it should be able to differentiate between us.
    What can we do to get it to continue recognizing her as U2????

    I like the scale but I don’t understand why the the water weight and muscle mass numbers never change. I’ve lost quite a few pounds and have been lifting weights so it seems like these numbers would change over time just as the body weight, bmi, and body fat numbers do.
