Anker eufy Smart Scale P1 with a lot of potential soon available at Amazon

Smart scales currently exist like sand at the seaside, the measured results go from extremely accurate to assumptions and estimates. Since 24.04.2019, a model is available, which does not only seem to make something optically better. The eufy Smart Scale P1 comes with a multitude of measured values. Can it work as well as it is advertised?

Smart scale with a lot of potential

Everyone knows the principle of a scale: It’ s in the bathroom, you stand on it and are happy about the result – or you start crying. Eufy’s new creation measures 28.0 x 28.0 x 2.4 cm and weighs 1.5 kg. That means normal values for a scale. The personal scale is synchronized with the EufyLife App (Android, iOS), so that you always have a good overview of your data.

In addition to the in-house app, the data can also be reproduced with Apple Health, Google Fit and Fitbit. Up to 16 people in one household can use the scales alternately in one user account.

On the upper side there is a 1.12 inch LED display, as known from other scales. A precise measurement should be possible at 5-180 kg. Everyone will find themselves in this grid.

The measured values of the Smart Scale P1

The smart scales from eufy record the following 14 body measurements:

  • Weight (logical)
  • body fat
  • BMI (Body Mass Index): Indicates whether you are normal, underweight or overweight.
  • Water content: average 65 % for adults
  • BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate): Metabolic rate that represents the amount of energy the body needs per day at complete rest.
  • Visceral fat: fat that surrounds the internal organs.
  • Body age: Physical/biological age.
  • body fat percentage
  • lean body mass
  • Weight of bones
  • bone mass
  • Muscles (proportion)
  • muscle mass
  • protein percentage

Four spiral-shaped sensors are to guarantee exact measured values.

This may sound like the ultimate all-purpose weapon for the bathroom, but it needs to be viewed with a doubting eye. Body age? Visceral fat? Metabolic rate? All this is to be determined when I stand on the eufy scale? Just because of the four spiral-shaped sensors? There must be more to it than that.

It does: The topmost visible layer of the scale is ITO conductive (ITO for indium tin oxide). Indium tin oxide is a semiconducting, largely transparent substance that supports the measurements. How well this works – and whether there are any other reasons for using the substance – must be shown by initial experience reports.

Assessment of the eufy Smart Scale P1

It is almost impossible to evaluate a scale from a distance. But what one can say: Optically the eufy Smart Scale P1 is very appealing, also the many measuring possibilities are tempting. Of course you really have to want a smart scale, but if you simply want to determine your weight, you don’t have to take a closer look at the eufy scale.

Of course, it is questionable how well a scale can determine the water or protein content in the body. We are not the right experts for this topic, but it is difficult to imagine that such measurements can be determined exactly within seconds.

In terms of price, the newly published scale is of course more expensive than “normal scales” without smart aspects. Other smart scales with a similar range of functions play in the same league in terms of price.
