Planning to get fit in 2021? These popular smart scales measure ELEVEN body metrics to help improve your health
If you’re serious about improving your fitness in 2021 then you need to keep track of your progress. It’s not enough to focus on how much you weigh because muscle weighs more than fat.
For a true measure of how well you’re doing and how toned and in shape your body is looking, the KAMTRON scales will help you monitor eleven key body metrics including body fat and muscle mass.
Previously, the only place to get such detailed data was in the gym or with a private personal trainer but now you can see all your statistics from the comfort of your own bathroom – and these scales cost less than £25.

There’s even an app included so that you can record your progress and stay on track. The app will give you detailed graphs showing your progress, which is hugely motivating to keep up the good work.
It syncs to Apple Health, Fitbit Fit and Google Fit, so that you can have access to your data wherever you are, even from your watch, and allows you to add multiple users so you and your family can get in shape together.
Despite giving you such detailed data and being accurate to within 0.1kg, the scales are super simple to use.
All you need to do is step on the scales barefoot and the electrodes positioned under each foot transmit a harmless, low-level electrical current through your body.
The signal passes through lean mass quickly, while fat slows the current down, allowing it to estimate how much of your body is fat and what portion is lean mass. It’s strong enough to capture your measurements but you won’t be able to feel it.
Reviews on Amazon have been incredibly positive, with more than 12,000 reviewers giving it a full five out of five stars.

‘Although my weight isn’t changing much, my muscle mass has gone up and my body fat percentage has gone down,’ wrote one satisfied Amazon shopper.
‘This has given me the motivation to keep going. So, I would highly recommend it to someone who needs that sort of motivation.’
One step on the scales will show you weight, BMI, body fat percentage, muscle mass percentage, water, metabolic age, basal metabolic rate (BMR), visceral fat, skeletal muscle, bone mass and protein.
BMR is a key metric in weight loss, telling you the number of calories you burn at rest. If you want to lose fat, you need to consume fewer calories than the BMR figure so your body burns up its own fat stores.
Most reviewers are surprised by how well they work given their low price point, with one happy customer summing it up.
They wrote: ‘I was sorely tempted to go for one of the really expensive scales that cost £160+ instead because I believe you get what you pay for. But I was persuaded by some reviews to try these and thus far, for 12 weeks, they’ve been fantastic!’
