I’ve used three bathroom scales in the last year. The first one was a traditional scale and had nothing special; The 2nd one was the Mi Smart Scale but the smart features require a smart band and it syncs data via Bluetooth only. And now I have the chance to test the Koogeek S1 smart scale, the most expensive scale I’ve ever used.
Is it worth the extra money? Let’s find out in the review.
Unboxing & Testing
Features & Performance
There is nothing special about the design of the Koogeek scale. It looks just like any other bathroom scale with a glass surface on top. The logo is put on a metal round piece and placed at the center of the scale. On the bottom, you can find the battery compartment and a button to reset or change between weight units like kilograms, stones, or pounds. The scale is powered by 4 AA batteries and they should last very long. I’ve used the scale for a month and haven’t had to replace them yet.
To get the most our of the Koogeek scale, you need to install the companion app which is available on Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store. Then, you will just need to follow on-screen instructions to set up the scale and connect it to your Wi-Fi network. From now on, you can step on the scale and all the data will be transferred to the Koogeek app automatically. You even don’t have to turn on your phone because the data is synced to their cloud server.
When you don’t have an Internet connection, you can still sync your weight and other data via Bluetooth. However, you will need to open the app before stepping on the scale.
The scale is perfect for tracking your weight as it could see the progress in charts and graphs. I also appreciate that it can be synced to Google Fit where all my activities are stored. I’m a little overweight at the moment, so this is extremely helpful for me to control my weight. Moreover, it allows you to add up to 16 users; the scale will automatically recognize each user, so there is no need to open the app and switch user at all. That means your whole family can use the same scale. It even provides an option to weigh your baby; you will need to weigh yourself first, and then hold the baby; the scale will calculate the baby’s weight with a simple subtraction.
Notably, the scale is equipped with the Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis technology to provide other important data like body fat mass, visceral fat, lean mass, bone mass, total body water, and Basal Metabolic Rate.
Overall, I have no complaint when using the Koogeek smart scale because all I need is to keep track of my weight-loss progress. It works very well in logging my weight automatically via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. So, it is a great replacement for my current Mi Scale. I highly recommend the product.
