This may somewhat answer your question - https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2015/11/wifi-weight-scales.html 

 

In this link (11 months old) - they say that not much has changed since that post. https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2016/11/winter-sports-recommendations.html 

 

I'm in the Garmin ecosystem (3 devices now) but my wife told me in no uncertain terms this morning that we're getting a scale too.... I'm already hiding one device, what's another one???

The Nokia (Withings) range will work for you. Talks to MyFitnessPal and also Google Fit. I've got a Body Cardio scale (Link) that is pretty good.

That is pretty darn good - I paid $289 for mine and that was with a staff discount.

Quite tempted by the next model down on sale at $140.

 

 

 

Any thoughts on how accurate the body composition readings are?  I know they're not going to be very accurate based on various tests people have done, but are the trends at least right?

They're pretty good - I've found you can at least get a trend. If you have one of the Nokia watches then it all ties together quite nicely in the health app too.

Just an update. Went to HN and purchased the Nokia Body+ for $139.97 which seems to do all that I wanted. Took a bit of configuring but finally have it all set up. The Nokia talks to MyFitnessPal  transferring the weight, my Motorola 2 watch also talks to MyFitnessPal pushing the steps across and it all syncs just nice. I don't think I would ever want the other items from Nokia though Blood Pressure would be nice but price is just out of my  league.

 

I now have a surplus fitbit Aria Scale that I will have to see what I can sell it for.

 

Thanks for help guys

Damn - I'm going to have to buy some scales before these specials end.

 

Either the Beurer BF 700 or the Beurer BF 800 or the Nokia Body+...

 

I'm leaning towards the Beurer models as they add BMR and AMR.

 

Anybody have those?

@tukapa1 go with the Nokia Body+ - it has more integration with other things and gives you what the others do.
