FitTrack Scale Review: The Best Home Smart Scale Available?

A smart scale measures your body weight, body fat, BMI and more, and then syncs this data with your smartphone via Bluetooth so you can track your body weight, fat and other composition metrics on a daily basis via an app. The FitTrack Scale has been proven by independent research to track these metrics within 3% of the accuracy of a DEXA scanner, making it quite possibly the best smart scale available today for in-home use. This FitTrack Scale review (aka ‘FitTrack Dara Scale’) details what this smart scale can do including the metics it can track, how to use it and also its benefits.

What is a smart scale and how does the FitTrack Dara scale work?

A smart body scale is a bathroom scale that measures not just your weight, but other body composition metrics, and has the capability to sync them to a smartphone app or site that records the data and allows you to track it over time.

The FitTrack smart scale works by sending small electrical signals through your body when you stand on it. These pass quickly through water and meet resistance when going through body fat tissue. The resistance is measured and used to calculate your body composition measurements.

Benefits of the FitTrack smart scale

The key benefit of these smart scales is that the FitTrack Dara offers reliable tracking of weight, BMI and other body metrics, and so it helps keep you accountable and measuring progress against personal goals. It’s great being able to easily see your body composition metrics on your smartphone app, which syncs automatically with the scale each time you step on it to weigh yourself (assuming your phone is within Bluetooth range).


What body metrics does the FitTrack scale measure?

FitTrack Scale Review trail and kale web wm 1
It’s important to make sure you have the app open and see the app say connected at the top before standing on the scales. This is all a very fast process.

I’ve listed below all the body metrics this smart scale tracks and records in the FitTrack smartphone app:

  1. Weight – Accurate to +/- 300grams
  2. BMI (body mass index)
  3. BFP (body fat percentage)
  4. Muscle rate (percentage)
  5. Body water (percentage) – Maintain optimal levels of hydration every day
  6. Bone mass – Discover your body’s foundational composition
  7. BMR (basal metabolic rate)
  8. Protein rate
  9. Metabolic age
  10. Visceral fat index
  11. Subcutaneous fat
  12. Standard weight – Ideal weight
  13. Weight control – The difference between your actual and standard weight)
  14. Fat mass – Get a clearer picture of your overall health
  15. Weight without fat
  16. Muscle mass – Understand if you’re losing fat, gaining strength, or both
  17. Protein mass

The app explains how each of these rates is calculated and where applicable tracks them against the preset low, standard and high levels for someone of your profile (taking into account factors such as your age, gender and height).

Customized with your goals in mind, The FitTrack Dara scale can keep you on track and fast-track your fitness journey.

How do you use the FitTrack scale with the app?

Once set up, have your phone with the FitTrack app open within Bluetooth range of the scale (within a few feet is ideal). Then stand on the scale to measure your weight and other metrics. The scale and app will automatically sync your body composition measurements within a few seconds – the app will tell you when it’s done and you can then step off the scale. The whole process only takes a few seconds to complete which is impressive.

  • Does the FitTrack sync with other health apps? Yes! FitTrack data can be synced directly with Apple Health, Google Health and other health tracking apps.

Is the FitTrack Dara the best smart scale available?

To truly answer this question we would have had to have tested FitTrack scale’s competitors – our past experience of smart scales is using our older Fitbit Aria Scale, and I can tell you that the FitTrack smart scale is much smaller and easier to set up and use than the Aria.

I can, however, say that if you are looking for a compact smart scale that is easy to use and reliably tracks your weight, BMI and a range of other interesting body metrics via an app, the FitTrack Dara scale is most likely what you’re looking for.
