There are smart scales aplenty on the market but Xiaomi’s Mi toàn thân Composition 2 is one of the most affordable options. It’s currently available for under £25 on Amazon in the UK and under $30 in the US. But does its attractive price point mean you should snap it up? Read on to lớn find out.

Mi smart scale design

White LED displayScale displays weight onlyBattery powered (4 AAA batteries, not supplied)

The mi Smart Scale has a lovely, minimalist thiết kế that belies its budget price tag. It’s not just a plate of glass plonked onto some feet: its underside curves pleasingly up khổng lồ meet its shiny, tempered glass surface, và the display is in bright white LEDs. In the centre of the scale is a discreet, mirrored mi logo và in the corners, four silvery discs.

If you’re not familiar with smart scale technology, here’s how it works. When you stand on the discs with bare feet, a small electrical charge is sent up into your body. By measuring the resistance it encounters, the scale is able to maps your toàn thân composition.

You can’t feel it & it’s perfectly safe for most people, although anyone with a pacemaker or other medical implant should speak lớn their doctor before using one.

However, it does take a couple of attempts to calibrate properly, so prepare yourself for some unlikely numbers the first time you step onto it.

The scale works via Bluetooth and doesn’t have a Wi-Fi option. That means you’ll need to have the app mở cửa to log a weigh-in. Still, on the plus side, that means there’s no annoying Wi-Fi syncing stage. It just works instantly.


At your first weigh-in, you can create a profile for yourself. The scale can tư vấn up lớn 16 separate profiles and without a Wi-Fi option there’s less of a chance that the stats will be sent to lớn the wrong account.

The scale itself will only display your weight (you can choose between kg và lbs) but the tiện ích will also tell you your BMI, body fat percentage, muscle mass, protein and water percentage, bone mass, visceral fat, toàn thân age and ideal body weight.

(Less usefully, the app describes your body type, with weirder options being “thick-set” và “lacks exercise”. This seems unnecessary & worse, users may find it insulting or off-putting.)

The tiện ích also defines the key stats và lets you know whether they’re in a normal range or not, by separating them into metrics that need your attention or into goals reached. There’s also a “history” section with clear, easy lớn read charts to lớn follow your progress.


All of this makes it a solid option for the general user but where the ứng dụng really comes into its own is for people who are already mi ecosystem users.

Price and availability

The premium Withings smart scale, by comparison, retails for around £129/$149. What you’ll get for that is a much more comprehensive on-scale display, rechargeable battery power, plus heart rate and heart health information. If you’re already a Withings user, an investment lượt thích that makes sense but for most people, the more budget-friendly option will be enough.


A USB charging option would be preferable khổng lồ battery power và it would be nice lớn see more measurements on the scale itself but if you can compromise on these points, the Mi toàn thân Composition Scale 2 is a good buy for anyone: it’s very reasonably priced và well designed.

However, if you’re already a ngươi smartwatch or fitness band user, it’s highly recommended.
