Either way, a scale can make all the difference in your quest for a better you. No matter your budget, personal style, or individual needs, we went through all the options to bring you what we feel are the best of the best.

Bluetooth Smart Body Fat Scale by Weight Gurus

What people really love about Weight Gurus’ Bluetooth Smart Body Fat Scale is that it syncs with a lot of the popular health apps, including FitBit, Google Fit, Apple Health, MyFitnessPal, Amazon Echo, and more aside from the native Weight Gurus app (which is still beautiful and very well designed, by the way).

The tempered glass surface can support up to 400 lbs., and it also comes with a five-year warranty! For a cheaper smart scale, this thing punches way above its weight class. $50

We’re really impressed with Yunmai’s Premium Smart Scale.

It comes in both white and black, and it’s 17mm tempered glass edge and curved shell bottom are specifically designed to take a beating while maintaining the scale’s beautiful modern look. $90

Fitbit Aria 2 Wi-Fi Smart Scale

When Fitbit released their original Aria in 2012, it was a standout leader in what was then an emerging industry. The Aria 2 proved an excellent update for the already iconic smart scale, with critics and reviewers calling it the most accurate on the market. It recognizes up to 8 individual users (while keeping individual stats private), and syncs automatically to your Fitbit to track progress on things like overall weight loss, body fat percentage, lean mass, and BMI. The scale is also beautifully designed, and features a polished glass surface that’ll look good anywhere in your home—from the bedroom to the bathroom. $130

The scale also syncs directly with the Garmin Connect to give you updated and accurate progress reports. $150

Nokia Body Cardio—Heart Health & Body Composition Wi-Fi Scale

You know we’re suckers for good design, which made Nokia’s Body Cardio smart scale an absolute shoe-in for this roundup. This beautifully designed minimalist smart scale is less than an inch thick, but also incredibly accurate and useful. Aside from your general body weight, the Nokia Body Cardio will also calculate a full body composition analysis that monitors your body fat percentage, water percentage, muscle mass, and bone mass. It’ll give you all the vital measurements you need to carefully monitor your progress and fitness levels, and then compile them in Nokia’s equally beautiful Nokia Health Mate App. If you have any of Nokia’s other smart products—like the Nokia Steel or Nokia Thermo—that info also syncs seamlessly to the app in order to provide an up-to-the-minute report on your daily activities and fitness level. $176
