June 4, 2018

The bathroom scale has become an important data point in the trend toward consumer-level health and fitness tracking. Many wellness-focused tech companies now make scales that automatically share weight, BMI and other vital stats with mobile apps to give an improved picture of the user’s overall health. And if the retail options don’t measure up, you can easily make your own connected scale.

This Channel Guide will help you:

  • Determine which wireless connectivity type you will need (Bluetooth vs. Wi-Fi).
  • Explore DIY totorials and project examples using Arduino or Raspberry Pi.
  • Compare features between consumer body scales, including integrations with fitness trackers and other smart home hubs.

Smart Scales

These smart scales measure not just weight and BMI, but heart rate, indoor air quality, and other health markers. Combine the data with other fitness-monitoring products or services like Fitbit or Apple's HealthKit to get a comprehensive view of your own wellbeing.​
