Weight isn’t the only way to measure your health, but if you use a dumb scale, that’s the only insight it gives you. If you want a more holistic look at your wellness, try the Roomie Sophie Smart Body Scale. It’s a smart scale that can measure body fat and more.

In fact, it measures 11 key health and nutrition metrics and comes with a free health app. And for a limited time, it’s on sale for just $27.99 (regularly $79).

A smart scale that measures body fat and more

The Roomie Sophie is a smart body scale that’s easy to use and can help you understand your body a little better. Instead of basing your fitness progress or workout goals solely on weight, Roomie Sophie gives you 11 different metrics to track.

With the Sophie in your house, just download the iOS app (there’s an Android version, too) and you can start studying your health. Obviously, you can check your weight. But this smart scale can also tell you your BMI, body fat, visceral fat, basal metabolic rate and more.

While a regular scale might show you that your body weight isn’t going in a direction you’re thrilled with, this one can help you figure out why. And that’s just the start. Just like the Apple Watch, this smart scale gathers data that can help you attain your health and fitness goals.

Keep tabs on your hydration levels, bone and muscle mass, and other health indicators

You also can check your hydration and protein levels, bone and muscle mass, and more. Now, this smart scale isn’t a medical device like what you’d find at the hospital. So it might not offer the laser accuracy of a doctor with expensive hardware on hand.

However, it can definitely help you guide your fitness and nutritional goals. If a weekly game of golf isn’t helping you reach peak fitness, maybe it’s time to hit the stationary bike.

Plus, you can customize what this smart scale measures for, as one reviewer found. “[Roomie Sophie] is very easy to use, and I love that it syncs to my phone and also into my Carb Manager App,” they wrote. “You can customize the display in the app. I have mine set up to display my weight (and progress), water %, bone mass, muscle %, body fat %, BMI, heart rate and weather.”

Get a handle on your health with a smart scale for body fat and more

Want to learn more about your body? This innovative piece of tech can give you 11 metrics to evaluate your health.
