What is the best Smart Bathroom Scale?

At T3, we did a test a few years back to assess the accuracy of a range of bathroom scales, using a Loughborough University lab test (water displacement) to find out a T3 staffer's exact weight. On comparing it to the scales, we found that most were inaccurate to varying degrees with the exception of Tanita's scales. 

Exact accuracy, as with fitness wearables, is not not necessarily essential, however. If you're tracking your weight and body fat percentage long-term, if the statistics are going in the right direction, and within safe limits it doesn't really matter if your scales are a few grammes out. None of the scales below are dangerously inaccurate. 

That said, the best scale in terms of reliability and usefulness is probably the Tanita RD 953 which strikes an excellent balance between looks, accuracy and range of body metrics measured. If you just want to track your weight and body fat percentage alongside your favourite fitness tracking wearables, you might be better off with the much simpler scales from John Lewis, Fitbit or Garmin.
