At the beginning of the year, I set a goal for myself to get my body in shape: I signed up for group classes, watched my diet, and counted the calories I consumed every day.
In order to more clearly track my progress, or to be more precise, my weight changes, I bought an electronic floor scale Mi Smart Scale 2 from Xiaomi brand. These scales belong to the category of “smart” devices Xiaomi.
My choice was on these scales I decided not by chance. With the Chinese firm Xiaomi, I know firsthand. First of all, products Xiaomi attracted my attention the optimal price-quality ratio.
This is not the first time I have encountered a superior appearance and quality equipment for quite adequate, by today’s standards, price.
You can buy it HERE;
I liked the way the scales were packaged – big concise white packaging, minimalism that draws the eye!
Here you can see a bit of information from the manufacturer, unfortunately, mostly without translation.
In any case, before directly purchasing the scales, I read on the site all the information I needed from the manufacturer:
The Xiaomi Scale 2 has a high-precision manganese steel sensor that can track weight changes with an accuracy of 50 grams. That is, it can count every glass of water and every piece of fruit or piece of cake eaten, and show the weight in the desired unit of measurement for accurate control and tracking
The Mi Fit app is designed specifically to track health data. It captures all changes in body parameters, so you always know more about your own body. The app knows how to compile a workout program and diet based on your personal BMI. Moreover, the results of each measurement are automatically saved in the cloud and transferred to charts.
On the website, two versions of the scales were presented at once: regular and with the ability to measure muscle mass, bone mass, calculate the body mass index, the amount of water, etc.
At first the second version of the scales seemed very interesting to me, but in the end I found all extra features unnecessary and, in fact, because of this, my final choice was given to the first version of the floor scales. I found it irrational to overpay for something that is not useful to me.
The first time I saw the scales in person, not on the laptop monitor, I was totally delighted! Ordering it, honestly, I had no idea that they would look so cool!
The top of the scale is made of durable glass. The elegant white color and glass surface makes the overall look of the scale just amazing! They will fit perfectly into any interior.
I am crazy happy with the minimalism of the scales in terms of appearance. In my opinion, the Xiaomi logo is in the center of the scale.
In order to activate the scales in work, it is necessary simply to stand on them. And then you can see the beautiful display that shows the weight.
Figures are large enough, and the backlight is bright, looks great in the dark.
In the lower part of the scales, you can see 4 rubberized feet, due to which the scales stand well on the surface and do not slip.
The bottom base is made of plastic. Everything is of high quality and has no extraneous unpleasant odors.
Here is also a bit of information from the manufacturer:
The scales are quite thin, yet very weighty due to the glass surface.
In our case, the package is very minimal: packaging, warranty card, user manual and, actually, the scales themselves.
Scales work from 3 AAA batteries, which, it should be noted that it will be necessary to purchase separately, since batteries are not included with scales.
The main feature of electronic floor scales Xiaomi (Mi) Smart Scale 2 is that they work in tandem with your smartphone. Unlike regular scales, Xiaomi Smart Scale 2 allows you to save and, in fact, monitor weight changes directly on your smartphone.
You just can’t imagine how convenient it is, especially considering my forgetfulness to record the scales’ readings after measurements.
In order to activate this feature, you need to install the Mi Fit app by downloading it from Play Market or App Store.
In order to connect the scales, simply turn on Bluetooth and sync with the scales the first time you turn it on. Later, the scales will automatically connect when you turn on Bluetooth on your phone. On the scales, you don’t need to turn anything on additionally!
I was very pleased with the fact that this scale can be used by anyone in the family. To do this, just add everyone in the app by recording the above data. In this case, the readings will not overlap and everyone will be able to track their changes in weight.
Xiaomi Mi Weight Scale 2 can recognize different users by reading their body parameters. It supports up to 16 regular users in total, as well as a guest mode where guest data is not saved in memory and does not affect the statistics.
Xiaomi Mi Weight Scale 2 can be used to measure the weight of children and parents. First, the parent should stand on the scale alone, and then stand together with the child in their hands. A simple algorithm will calculate the child’s weight with a high degree of accuracy. Pets and anything else can be weighed in a similar way.
After each weighing, the weight reading is recorded in the app. Then, based on all the readings, a certain graph of weight changes is built.
The app shows that my current weight is ideal in relation to my height (173 cm), although for me this figure is far from ideal.
In addition to all of the above, the Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2 Electronic Floor Scale has a “Balance” feature. For me, this feature in the scales was completely unnecessary, never used and do not plan to use. Perhaps someone will be interested!
And now, in fact, about the most important thing! I was very impressed by the accuracy of Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2. I tested them with dumbbells of different weight and the indicators were just perfect. I have never had such an accurate scale. As a rule, all the scales I have come across before, were inaccurate, which I had to adjust for over time.
I’ve been using this scale for 3 months now and it hasn’t disappointed me yet! I will certainly see what happens next.
