Want a smart scale that measures weight, BMI, and more — and sends all this data automatically over WiFi, no need to connect it to a phone? This WiFi smart scale does that. It's handy, if maybe a tad bit less secure than Bluetooth smart scales (an always-on WiFi connection is typically less secure than a Bluetooth connection you create only when you're transferring data). The app collects all this data and makes it easy for you to see your gains and losses. It also works with Fitbit, Google Fit, Apple Health, and more.

What could happen if something goes wrong?

We like that Greater Goods does not sell your personal information to third parties. That's a good thing. Unfortunately we couldn't determine if this product meets our Minimum Security Standards by providing security updates and managing security vulnerabilities. Not knowing that, we have to warn this product could come with *privacy not included. Also remember, if you connect the app and share your smart scale data with a third-party like Google Fit or Fitbit, then you must rely on those companies to keep this personal information secure too.

Tips to protect yourself

  • 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.
