Twelve body measurements. That's how many things this Bluetooth connected scales says it tracks. Everything from weight to BMI to bone mass, muscle mass, and even your scary sounding visceral fat measurement. When you step on the scale, all you see if your weight. You have to download the EufyLife app and connect your phone to the scale to get the other eleven measurements. The app can share your (very) personal data with Google Fit and Apple Health if you connect the app to those services. Here's hoping all your visceral fat data stays private!

Was könnte passieren, wenn etwas schiefgeht?

Eufy seems to do a good job protecting their users' privacy and security. Which is a good thing with a smart scale that collects so much personal data. Nobody wants those twelve body measurements--including your visceral fat--shared out to the world. Just know that while Eufy seems to do a good job keeping your personal information private, if you connect the app and share this data with a third-party like Google Fit or Apple Health, then you must rely on those companies to keep this personal information secure too.

Eufy also doesn't sell your personal data, which is cool. Eufy does collect information on you and uses that information to show you ads for them and third parties, which isn’t super cool but also isn’t unusual.

Hopefully not too much will go wrong with this Bluetooth connected smart scale. We’re not exactly sure what visceral fat is but we’re dang sure we don’t need that information out there in the world for anyone to see.

Tipps zu Ihrem Schutz

Be very careful what third party companies you consent to share your health data with. If you do decide to share your health data with another company, read their privacy policy to see how they protect, secure, and share or sell your data.
