Hello. Today I want to talk about smart scales from the company Xiaomi. This is the Smart Scale. I’ve never had this kind of gadget before. But I already have some thoughts on this device, so let’s start.
Equipment. The scales are delivered in a large cardboard box, inside it there are the scales themselves, instructions … And, what I did not expect to see there at all, is the batteries.
Design the scales are quite stylish. Pure white color, the glass on the front panel is very, very thick, it seems to me that it is simply unrealistic to break or crush it. There are rubberized feet at the back (thanks to them, the scales do not slip) and a battery slot, which, according to rumors, lasts for a year. The back itself is made of matte plastic.
When you first turn on the front panel, more precisely, in its upper part, the inscription “hello”.
It’s nice to have it hidden somewhere. light sensor, it adjusts the brightness of the white LEDs depending on the brightness of the lighting.
It is very inconvenient that the measurements do not take place in kilograms familiar to us, but in Chinese “dings”
That is, the weight that is shown on the display will be almost twice the real one. But it’s good that there is a function to switch either to pounds or to native kilograms.
It is very difficult for me to say about the accuracy of the scales. When weighing, such a story happens that the scales show a whole kilogram less than my old ones. I don’t even know who to believe. Of course, the soul is more drawn to Xiaomi because “I am a whole kilogram thinner.”
The maximum weight that can measure Xiaomi-150 kilogram.
In order for the scales to show accurately and without errors, you need to put them on a flat surface, otherwise they will begin to “cheat”.
Scales can be connected to a smartphone via bluetooth and control the scales using the application mi fit.
All information, except for weight, for example, body mass index, can be viewed there. It is convenient to observe changes, track how training affects weight 🙂
Another feature was that you can enter the body weight of different people into the application, and not weigh yourself alone. Moreover, the scales themselves will guess what is being weighed now. It is also possible to weigh mother and child together, the program itself will calculate who weighs how much and the sum.
It’s good that if there is no smartphone nearby, then smart scales remember the numbers and load them into the application at the next synchronization.
Conclusion. In the end, I want to say that if you are buying a scale for the first time, this is a very good option, there are so many different functions and chips that any user will be satisfied. Well, if you already have scales, then it makes no sense to buy such ones. In fact, the usual scales. I believe that small household appliances should not have a connection with the phone, this is just an entertainment function for which we overpay. It is better to take ordinary scales, which are three times cheaper, but they show the same values. Yes, the scales are beautiful, reliable, this is a great gift and a cool solution for those who really need it.
