Samsung Health Scales – Which Smart Scales Are Compatible with Samsung Health (S Health)?

Smart scales and Samsung Health

If you are reading this post then that probably means you are using Samsung Health as your preferred all-in-one health and fitness app. And that you are looking for a smart scale that is compatible with and can sync with Samsung Health, sending your weight data (and possibly more) to the app. But trying to unpick information from all the different suppliers, reviews or forums can be confusing so we hope to simplify some of this so that you can be clear of what the options are.

Syncing directly or indirectly with Samsung Health

We don’t want to complicate things by mentioning various workarounds and third party solutions to get different scales to work with Samsung Health so in this post we are focusing on those scales that can sync directly with Samsung Health. What this typically means is that the scale sends data to its ‘native’ app (via wifi or Bluetooth) which then sends the data to your Samsung Health account. For instance the iHealth scale sends data to its iHealth app, which when linked with your Samung Health account will send the data there. The scales all listed here can sync with Samsung Health through their officially partnered apps.

Other smart scale features to consider

S Health screenshot for your smart scaleOnce you have established which smart scales are indeed compatible with Samsung Health you can start to look at other features.

Metrics – do you just want to measure weight and BMI or other advanced metrics like body fat percentage, body mass, water mass etc? Scales that measure all these fancy metrics use a different technology for the measurement and they are more expensive. However, keep in mind that Samsung Health does not track a lot of these advanced metrics, so you can sync the weight data but will probably need to track the rest on the ‘native’ app.

Bluetooth or Wifi – Wifi will send data to the cloud via your wifi connection to update the data in your apps. A bluetooth connection will send data directly to the device. If you are using a scale that only has wifi, just make sure there is decent connectivity in the bathroom.

Style – How large do you want the display to be? Do you like a minimalist look?

Price – the price can vary depending on the brand, but also which metrics are available.

4 Smart scales compatible with Samsung Health

The following smart scales have their own ‘native’ apps that are official partner apps of Samsung Health.

iHealth Lite

iHealth Lite smart scale with app
The iHealth Lite is made by iHealth Labs whose line of products include blood pressure monitors, blood glucose monitors, body analysis scales, pulse oximeters and activity trackers. They cover a whole range of health products – not just fitness. They have a sleek minimalist style that fits in any bathroom. These smart scales don’t integrate with as many 3rd party apps as the other scales but they do integrate with Samsung Health so that’s all that counts here! The iHealth Lite doesn’t measure lots metrics and instead sticks to the basics – weight and BMI. But both are good value for money, particularly the iHealth Lite.

Syncing your smart scale app with Samsung Health

In order to sync Samsung Health with your scale’s app, go to the partner apps section in Samsung Health. You will see a list of apps and what data set you want to sync. You are obviously looking for ‘weight’ in this case as the data you want to sync. Click on the partner app, or it may already detect the app on your phone and initiate the syncing.

1. Find the app in the Partner Apps section of Samsung Health

Summary

The scales mentioned here are all integrated directly with Samsung Health and they are your most straight-forward options. You may come across other scales that you are interested in that are not directly compatible for which there may indeed also be options, but just make sure to research that properly. The Fitbit Aria 2 for instance is compatible with Samsung Health via a third party app called Fit and Healthy (officially a Samsung Health partner app) and I’ve heard about Nokia Health Mate sending data to Samsung Health but only through using MyFitnessPal. These are options, but personally, too much work in my opinion.
