Got pretty excited for the features of this scale but ended up arriving dead on arrival :(. Kinda a surprising letdown for an Anker product since I haven't had issues in the past.

Pairing is a little odd occasionally but overall a fantastic buy. I live with roommates but the ability to map different weights to different accounts is really helpful!

Great scale, app set-up was mostly easy
Great scale, app set-up was mostly easy, my only negative would be it does not work on the kidney fire.

Essential to Tracking and Improving Overall Wellness
I have been using this product for just over a week now, and I am definitely a fan. Having access to metrics about my health beyond just weight has been a powerful tool in getting me to focus more on my overall health. The streamlined integration with the Apple Health App has also made it fun to track my progress, and share that progress with others.
- Very clean design that will look great just about anywhere
- Integrates with Apple Health App
- Intuitive setup via the EufyLife app (it took just a couple of minutes to set my wife and myself up)
- Consistent and accurate readings
- Tons of useful metrics to help track and improve overall health
- Competitively priced (Great Value)
- You must have your phone on hand if you want to see all the available metrics while standing on the scale through the EufyLife app
- Readings do vary just a tad if the surface is not perfectly flat.
In summary, I would highly recommend this product for anyone shopping for a smart scale. I don't think you'll find a equivalent product with similar features for a better price. Now get out there, and start living a healthier life!

Not Acurate For Everyone
This scale was very accurate for me (160# female) but when my husband uses it, it says he's extremely overweight and all his measurements are far off. He is very lean & muscular so I'm not sure why it does this. I will continue to use it since it is accurate for me (comparing to a fat caliper & nutritionists measurements)

Works great but needs more sync partners!
Received this yesterday. Setup with both the wife's and my phone was super easy, and BT connection is practically instant every time. The numbers are decent, however, I'm going to do a caliper-based body fat assessment in the next few days to see what the delta is between what the scale states and what my real numbers are. We have two older scales that provide these numbers and they're all within 3% of each other. with the Eufy the highest of the three.
I really like Eufy and Anker products and they've always went above and beyond anytime I had an issue (only one defective product out of over a dozen, and they more than made up for it). So I know they stand behind their products, monitor feedback posted here, and actually take steps to improve products based on the feedback they receive.
I'll update in a few days after I complete a body fat measurement with calipers.
That said, now to go on to discuss why I have given the scale 4 stars instead of 5.
More sync partners. You need more sync partners. Fitbit and GoogleFit are probably used mostly by casual users, but more serious athletes probably use other platforms. I would consider myself more of an multi-sport enthusiast and not a serious athlete, so I'm between casual and serious, however, and I use mostly Garmin products to collect my workout data. Garmin Connect aggregates my workouts, MyfitnessPal watches my calories, and TrainingPeaks helps me monitor my real fitness level. TrainingPeaks is where everything is really aggregated and analyzed. These three apps get along OK, each able to sync some parts. I use FittnessSyncer to make up the gaps. In order to get data from my BodySense Scale into TrainingPeaks I had to create a Fitbit account, even though I have never owned a FitBit product.
- EufyLife syncs to Fitbit
- FitnessSyncer syncs from Fitbit to TrainingPeaks
- I manually update my Weight in Garmin Connect
- Garmin Connect syncs to MyFitnessPal
Unfortunately, Fitbit only tracks weight, BMI, and percent body fat and it rounds weight and BMI to the nearest whole number. BMI is pretty useless so that doesn't really matter, but the other metrics would be nice to get into TrainingPeaks.
So, my requests are to allow automatic syncing to TrainingPeaks, FittnessSyncer, MyFitnessPal, and Garmin Connect (if Garmin allows for the later). At a minimum, a .fit file that could be exported would also work.

Gets the job done and a little more.
My wife and I did the Whole30 diet plan (they say it's not a diet, but it still kind of is). Despite the fact that Whole30 encourages you not to weigh yourself everyday, I like seeing the results. I also had a Fitbit Aria that was starting to act a little erratic after a couple of years, so I decided to give the Eufy BodySense a spin.
It only takes a second or two to determine how much you weigh, which is great. It also gives you estimates for a number of things including your BMI, BMR, water weight, lean body mass, bone mass, visceral body fat, and more, with some tags that let you know if those numbers are high, low, or excessive (I take those figures with a grain of salt, but they're good indicators nonetheless).
For anything other than weight, including keeping your log, you do have to have your smartphone with you, app installed and running, when you hop on the scale. That's kind of a pain. Also, navigating the app, there are only a couple of measurements that you can see on a chart for the past week. I'd love to see them upgrade this so you can look at all of your measurements over any period you choose (e.g. week, month, year).
That said, I still plan to use it everyday for as long as it holds up. At $50 this isn't a cheap device, but you do get a lot of features which help make up for the cost.

Good price, and there's the legendary Anker customer service if anything
As always, Anker does not disappoint. I've been eyeing the Fitbit Aria for ages, but have never been able to justify the cost to myself. As soon as I stumbled across this in one of my emails from Anker, I jumped for joy and bought it immediately. Setup was simple, and it comes with batteries that are easy enough to replace whenever they do run out, if ever. Not sure about the accuracy of the body fat measurements and the like, but I'll trust the previous reviews that have tested them. Fingers crossed for Fitbit support.

This scale is garbage. Stopped working after a month.
This scale is a GD piece of garbage.
When I first received the scale, I was initially pleased with its ability to sync with my phone and track my weight. (However, the fact that you have to open up the app to sync is poor design.) The scale itself worked well for about a month as I tracked my weight loss. It correlated with my older digital scale. Then after I noticed that my weight stopped moving at its steady rate of change for more than a week. Getting frustrated because my training and nutrition is on point, I decided to do some investigating. The scale had shown the exact same weight for more than a week.
1. I weighed myself and then drank a glass of water. Weighed myself again, exact same weight.
2. I grabbed a bottle of lotion and weighed myself again, still the exact same weight.
3. I grabbed a bottle of lotion, 1L shampoo, and a 1.5L shower cleaner and weighed myself again, still the exact same weight!!
WTF right? You're working so hard at the gym and your nutrition, and you're trusting the performance of this scale to provide metrics and feedback on your efforts. And then you find out you can't even trust it. So I stepped on my previous digital scale and found that I had already lost 1.5 lbs since this "smart scale" stopped being smart. I am beyond pissed off and irate at this thing.
Of course, this all happens just after the AlumiGogo return window closes. To the day practically, so the scale becoming non-functional at this point is just all too convenient. Now there is no avenue of recourse to get a refund.
This scale is less than trash. The AlumiGogo box that it came in holds more value than the scale itself.
I would not recommend this scale to anyone who wants to know their weight because it can't even do that right.
