Weight Gurus Digital Bathroom Scale (Clear) Review

Weight Gurus Digital Bathroom Scale (Clear) Review $29.99

I'll admit, this is a great basic scale that has a few nice features.  I have reviewed a couple higher end bathroom scales, but they also come with a higher end price tag.  This bathroom scale is sleek, modern, and has a couple bells and whistles at a reasonable price.  

What I really love about this scale is the company who makes/sells them.  They are called Greater Goods and they donate a portion of the sales to three organizations.  They support Love146, a charity that works to end child trafficking and exploitation; The Global Orphan Project, which works with local churches to provide care for orphaned and abandoned children in their communities; and Now Adopt, which assists families in covering the cost of domestic and international adoptions.  

Lets talk about this scale a little more.  It does the the basic things a scale does....takes your weight, but, it also has 8 user profiles available so if your whole family wants to track their progress, the scale will automatically recognize who is stepping on the scale and store that information.  

It also has a weightless weight option.  This is a fancy way to say that it will display your weight loss/weight gain from the last time you stepped on the scale instead of your actual weight (example -13.3).  

The last feature is called smartphone tracking.  Now this is not a bluetooth scale and it does not have bluetooth capabilities which is why it is a bit cheaper.  However, it does have the ability to track your trends and measurements through the syncing of the Weight Gurus app using your camera. 

Actual Specs from Amazon

Auto Step-on (turns on automatically when weighing). Auto Off. Auto calibration. Auto user detect (important for multi-user homes - e.g. husband/wife). Supports up to 8 users.

Durable tempered glass construction. Large weighing platform (150 sq inches). Extra Large, Backlit LCD (4.3"). Kg / Lbs. 4 AAA batteries included.

Final Thoughts

This is a great scale for someone who is looking to update to a newer more modern design.  If you want to be able to weight yourself, get an accurate reading, and let other family members do the same....this is a great option.  However, if you want the ability to "analyze" your progress with a bluetooth connection and get your BMI number, this scale will not be an option for you.  

This scale does come in black tempered glass as well for the same price.  Personally, I have a black scale and you can see toe prints, dirt, and dust.....it always looks dirty.  

I also have the pricier model with a bluetooth connection and never use it.  I do use the BMI tool and really wish it was offered with this scale.  Now, if they would only make an in-between model with the BMI and without bluetooth I would be a happy camper.
