Digitizing your health data is an excellent way to have the information you need with just a few taps on your mobile device. It’s good that more and more companies that offer wearables and smartwatches also offer digital scales to complete the experience. (You don’t even need to have smartwatches and wearables from these brands; as long as your device can access the companion mobile apps, then you’re good to go.)
We’ve listed some smart scales you can check out—arranged from the most affordable to the priciest one.
Huawei Scale 3 Pro
SRP: PHP 3,999
The Huawei Scale 3 Pro is a stylish and intelligent body scale equipped with a retractable handlebar and a tempered glass surface. It has eight dual-frequency electrodes and Huawei Trufit 2.0 AI to ensure accurate algorithms for body composition measurements. It can measure body fat, liver fat, skeletal muscle, bioimpedance, and other health stats with high precision. Once connected to devices like smartphones and tablets, the smart scale can help you monitor your fitness progress and vital health-related stats.
The Huawei Scale 3 Pro is now available for PHP 3,999 until July 22 for online pre-order via the Huawei Store, Lazada, and Shopee. If you are pre-ordering, you can get it at PHP 300 off, and you get a FREE Bluetooth Speaker worth PHP 1,499!
realme Smart Scale
SRP: PHP 1,590 | Sale price: PHP 1,295.58 (Lazada)
The realme Smart Scale is also comprehensive about what it measures. It covers everything from weight, body age, fat rate, basal metabolism, visceral fat level, bone mass, heart rate, and more. It connects to the realme Link app to give you a customized health report every time you use the scale. And this Smart Scale supports multi-person health data profiles.
If you want to weigh fruits, small pets, or even babies, the Smart Scale offers a Small Weight mode, which measures weight from 50g to 9.99kg with a precision of up to 10g. realme promises 360-day long standby. It uses four AAA batteries to run.
Xiaomi Mi Body Composition Scale 2
SRP: PHP 1,650
The Xiaomi Mi Body Composition Scale 2 comes equipped with a G-type manganese steel sensor, allowing it to detect subtle 50g weight changes. It can switch between dynamic and static weighing modes, where the latter can measure the weight of small objects as light as 100g. But, like the other scales, it can track precise data points like weight, visceral fat, muscle mass, BMI, basal metabolism, body size, body fat, body age, and more. Your data will be accessible through the Mi Fit app.
This smart scale can also conduct a body balance test if you need that. Like the realme Smart Scale, you can get a 12-month battery life out of the Mi Body Composition Scale 2.
Fitbit Aria Air
SRP: PHP 2,990 | Sale price: PHP 2,890
It will make sense to get your hands on the Fitbit Aria Air if you use Fitbit products as it seamlessly integrates with the brand’s ecosystem. It can monitor your BMI and weight and then sends your weight stats to your Fitbit account so you can quickly see trends and your progress through easy-to-read charts and graphs. The Fitbit app is also where you can access tools to help you reach your fitness goals.
The Aria Air connects to your mobile device via Bluetooth. This scale supports multiple users, so you can share it with those who live with you. Individual stats will be sent to each user’s personal account, so you won’t be sharing that information with others unless you want to share it. The Aria Air runs on three AAA batteries.

With the Huawei Scale 3 no longer available, we swapped that out with the new Huawei Scale 3 Pro.
