The iHealth Core Wireless Body Composition Scale is one of the larger bathroom scales we reviewed, though it's also one of the easiest to use. It performed consistently well in our accuracy tests, and that is arguably the most important attribute of any scale.

We were impressed with the accuracy of this bathroom weight scale and its overall ability to provide consistent results in repetitive testing. For instance, this unit was one of the most accurate bathroom scales when testing free weights. Additionally, this unit gave consistent results when we had numerous volunteers weigh themselves multiple times in quick succession.

This digital scale can measure up to 400 pounds, which is a normal maximum for bathroom scales. Additionally, up to 10 users can create profiles and track their progress using their mobile devices. The scale can measure and track your weight, body mass index and body fat and help you with weight loss by letting you set goals and track your daily calorie intake.

This iHealth unit is easy to set up – another reason it's among the best bathroom scales. Finding and downloading the correct mobile app is easy because all you have to do is scan the QR code. The app is very straightforward, letting you quickly pair your mobile device with the scale.

One of our favorite things about this unit is how intuitive it is. You can tap the scale to read the weather, and it clearly shows your weight and body fat percentage. However, although this scale takes several measurements in addition to your weight and body fat – body mass index, body water percentage, muscle mass, bone mass – you have to view those measurements on the app.

Compared to the best digital bathroom scale, iHealth only misses a couple of tracking features. These are the ability to track your food and water intake, which are helpful when using a smart scale for weight loss.

We were a little surprised at the size of this weight scale. It’s larger and heavier than most scales we tested. It measures 13.8 inches square and 1 inch in height. Additionally, it weighs 5.5 pounds, which is slightly heavier than most of the units we tested. We also found that you have to stand directly on the silver circles for the scale to work properly, which is a little more cumbersome than just stepping on a scale.

This bathroom scale requires four AAA batteries in order to work. This is standard for most digital scales. Aesthetically, this scale is an opaque white color, making it a good neutral addition to most bathrooms.

This iHealth bathroom scale comes with a one-year warranty, which is a standard warranty length for these units. However, some of its competitors are backed by five-year warranties or even lifetime coverage. If you'd feel more comfortable getting a scale with a longer warranty, you might want to consider the Yunmai Premium.

iHealth offers some helpful online resources. For instance, you can view the product manual and frequently asked questions on its website anytime you need to. Additionally, you can contact iHealth for help and support by phone and email. It doesn’t have a blog, however, that many other scales include on their websites to help encourage better health and reach fitness goals.

The iHealth Core Wireless Body Composition Scale provides accurate and consistent measurements, and it has a nice feature set that can help you reach your weight loss goals. It is a tad on the larger and heavier side, compared to its competition. However, the mobile app has advanced tools that can help you progress toward your health and fitness goals.
