Accurately Measure 8 Body Composition Health Data. Koogeek Smart Health Scale accurately measures: 

  • Weight
  • BMI (Body Mass Index)
  • Body fat mass
  • Lean mass
  • Bone mass
  • Total body water
  • BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate)
  • Visceral fat

Body Statistics Smart Scale Overview:
When you step on most Smart body Fat Scales they will run a small electrical current through your lower body that goes in one foot and back out the other so they only really test out your lower body which for some people can be an area where they carry either more or less fat than in their upper body. This can give inaccurate full body readings already but the main reason why most smart scales are not accurate for all body types is because much of the Smart Scale body fat calculations are done based on data collected from other people who fall into your gender, age, height and weight. So if you have a failry "average" body type than the readings will be OK. But if you do not have an average body type, for instance if you have a high level of lean muscle mass because you weight train or body build than this is often not considered by the Smart Scale and it will assume the added weight is fat not muscle and may even consider a very lean person to be overweight and high in fat. Some scales have an athletic mode that takes some of this into account which will help get more accurate body analysis readings but even then, how can the smart scale truly know how much muscle you have versus fat?

So for the above mentioned reasons I do not take Smart Scale Body Statistics very seriously on most smart scales, even the ones that have an athletic mode option! And for the record the Koogeek S1 Bluetooth Wifi Body Statistics Smart Scale does not have an athletic mode option so my body fat readings on the Koogeek S1 are double what my other iHealth Vista Smart Scale (with athletic mode) is telling me.

In terms of weight measurement the Koogeek S1 Bluetooth Wifi Body Statistics Smart Scale seems ot be fairly accurarte and for many people this will be the most important measurement they will want to track and record.

Using the Koogeek App:
Overall I found the Koogeek App to be well laid out and easy to use, it is also setup to be used with their other health and fitness products which will show up alongside the Koogeek S1 if you also have them. Make sure to watch my YouTube video below where I show you around the Koogeek App on my iPhone.

Koogeek S1 Pros: 

  • Very affordable price compared to other similar smart scales.
  • Great looking and compact size will look great in most bathrooms.
  • Can sync via Bluetooth or WiFi.
  • Up to 16 people can use the same device.
  • Can weigh your baby with it.
  • Software is well laid out.

Koogeek S1 Cons:

  • No Athletic mode for people that have a higher lean body mass than most people.
  • Body fat readings seem to be purely based on an algorithm rather than using the sensors.
  • Even though the Koogeek S1 stores your info in the cloud, there is no online way to view your account info.

Final Thoughts…
The Koogeek S1 is a well priced and great looking Smart Health Scale that allows you to view and document your weight journey over a period of time.

In terms of the body fat and other body analysis readings, I would not take them too seriously since I believe they are mostly based on algorithms derived from a database of what would be the average body type for a given gender, age, height and weight.

Keep in mind most of these body fat scales are not going to give you a super accurate body analysis since they only read your lower body and are not always setup for all body types.
