[Review] Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2 – Smart Balance

In this article I talk about Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2, Smart balance I acquired on GearBest.

She is able to indicate not only the weight, but also IMC, body fat, amount of water, basal metabolism, visceral fat, muscles, bone mass and biotype. The data is recorded and passed to the application E Fit, running on an Android or iOS phone via Bluetooth 4.0

Want to know more about her? Then check out this analysis.

Motivation

A while ago I changed credit card points for a digital scale Black & Decker. Is a simple balance, It marks only the weight, and it's not very accurate, showing differences in successive measurements.

Since mid-August I decided to take a less sedentary life and I've been walking, cycling and running with certain frequency. No technology replaces physical exercises, but they certainly help to give a little extra motivation.

It was so with applications such as Runkeeper, that record these activities and how the Heartbit, who to award the activities, and the frequency of them, with points that can be redeemed for products. I will speak my first Exchange in brief.

It was also so with smart wristbands (MI Band 1S and Mi Band 2) and with the smart watch Amazfit Pace, that encourage walking and other physical activities. And also has the Speedometer / Cycling computer iGPSPORT iGS20E, It encourages the cycling. Until Sports Active 2 I tried using it again for a rainy day, but unfortunately one of the sensors no longer want to synchronize.

I've always liked statistics. I like to record as much data as possible for eventual analyses and to better monitor any developments. And this is where Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2. With her I not only can't measure BMI, body fat, amount of water, basal metabolism, visceral fat, muscles, bone mass and biotype, How can also have a history of my weight and amount of fat.

The choice of Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2

I confess that I did a lot of research before purchasing the Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2. I had seen some smart scales announced on Brazilian stores, but all of brands that I've never heard of. In China there is also a certain variety, with the same problem.

But the Xiaomi is a brand I already know. I have several products, including the already mentioned MI Band 1S, Mi Band 2, and Amazfit Pace. I also have a pair of bluetooth headphones, of which I will speak soon. I just had a product that didn't last long: at power bank. But overall I can say that they are good at what they do.

Since the first version of the Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale I'm interested in product, but for being a great product and heavy, the freight was prohibitive. A Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2 and to GearBest changed that.

A Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2 weighs 1,63 Kg, or 2,191 Kg with packaging. And the freight GearBest went for $ 17,28. The scale cost $ 40,99. Therefore, the total cost was $ 60,09.

The purchase of Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2

Opted for purchase on GearBest for the best price. The freight was BR Tracked, which at the time was the most ..., among the available. The package came in the mail from Switzerland and arrived very quickly, only 14 calendar days after shipping. And the best: was not taxed!

Apparently the only option today is the registered shipping, which is slower, but the chances are even smaller tax.

Unboxing and Tests

A Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2 It came well packaged, with the product box wrapped in bubble wrap. Instruction manual and registration in the box and on the scale are in Chinese, but there's no secret in the configuration and the application E Fit are in Portuguese. Today there is an international version Mi Smart Scale 2 that can be chosen at the time of purchase in GearBest. But I wouldn't bother to pay more dearly for it, the Chinese version perfectly meets me.

Synchronize the scale with the Mi Fit is very quiet, enough to enter the option of adding a “Mi Body Composition Scale” and follow the instructions. A Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2 automatically recognizes the user and can be used by more than one person, both with the same phone as with other.

Synchronization is only required on first use, thereafter simply open the Mi Fit and step on the scale. No buttons to turn on or off Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2. She calls automatically when we climb on it. Then she shows the weight and then shows a progress bar of the calculation and upload the information to your cell phone. She also works without the phone, but in this case only shows the weight.

The display is hidden under the translucent plastic scale. The numbers and the small bar appear only when the scale is turned on, all in white. In the pictures gets a little blurry and it's not because of the focus. I put up a pen in there to help me focus, but the blur of numbers is due to the translucent plastic of his own which is balance on top of the display. But, the display is clearly visible, both with clear environment in total darkness.

And as the Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2 can you calculate as much data about the user? Well, in your base she has 4 electrodes, that are under our feet when we're weighing. Through them she passes an electric current through the body of the user. And through the captured data it can infer all calculated measures.

The extent to which these estimates are correct I cannot say, I don't know much about the science behind the product. I can only say that the Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2 is consistent. As much weight as the other measures do not change in consecutive measurements and credible way change day by day.

But I can't tell if these measures are accurate because I've never done this kind of measurement of otherwise, except for weight in other scales also unreliable and the IMC also dubious methods, How to measure 3 points of the body with skinfold or making an equation with height and weight, that should be the least reliable of all.

I picked up the habit of weighing every day first thing in the morning upon awakening. In this way the statistics are more reliable, because you haven't fed me and I'm always with light clothes, that do not influence the measurements, Besides being only shoes with slippers, easy to get. Must be obvious, but remember that the measurements need to be made with bare feet so that the electrodes can make your work.

The Mi Application Fit

The Mi application Fit is the same that is used by the Mi Band and for some models Smart watches of Xiaomi. On the user profile screen it shows the weight, a score that is calculated on the basis of the measurements and body fat. The points system is interesting, as it gives an incentive for more, to such gamification, It is fashionable (Despite being a horrible word).

I just got off the 40 for the 41 Since I began using points. But I didn't make any change in diet, only physical exercises. Furthermore I have only wanted to eat smaller portions than you used to eat, especially at dinner. The only thing I've managed to lose some fat, even though most of them return as soon as I push it a little (Christmas, New Year…), but just back to discipline that they make go away. The bravest will certainly see the score up more easily.

E Fit: the main screen of profile.

E Fit: the main screen of profile.

By pressing on the marking of weight, We arrived on a screen that shows a graph of changes in weight and a summary of the body level, with score, body fat percentage, muscle weight and percentage of water.

E Fit: evolution of weight, score, body fat, muscles and water.

E Fit: evolution of weight, score, body fat, muscles and water.

One more touch and we have the chart the evolution of the score. As I mentioned, I started in the 40, I jumped in 41, but eventually I go back to the 40 to give some exaggerated.

E Fit: Evolution of the score.

E Fit: Evolution of the score.

Down the screen we see each of the measures, reference values and recommendations. For example, in case my BMI is at 28,0, What is considered high. The recommendation is that I do more exercises so that he gets in 25,0.

E Fit: IMC.

E Fit: IMC.

Then comes the body fat, She's in 28,9%, What is considered high also. I need to be between 17,0% and 22,0%, in other words, need to eliminate more 6,4 Kg of fat.

E Fit: Body Fat.

E Fit: Body Fat.

Then comes the water percentage. In my case is in 50,7%, What is low. The normal is above 55%. The text says something about quick weight loss, that is usually the result of fluid loss along with the fat. It is not my case. The text also says that measures taken after workouts or after bathing may not be exact. It's also not my case. Apparently my lack of water is associated with excess fat. Decreasing a percentage of the other must naturally increase.

E Fit: Water.

E Fit: Water.

The next item is the basal metabolism. In this case the mine is in 1799 kcal, and with that I take a “goal not achieved”. According to the application, my standard basal metabolic is of 1864 kcal. The recommendation is that I try to take a walk after meals and race at least once a week. I really don't do any exercise after meals. I also think you shouldn't do. Strange…

E Fit: Basal Metabolism.

E Fit: Basal Metabolism.

The next item is the visceral fat. Mine is in 13, considered high. The ideal would be reduce to less than 9. The application says I keep exercising and having a balanced diet.

E Fit: Visceral Fat.

E Fit: Visceral Fat.

The next item is muscle. According to the application I have 62,6 Kg of muscle. This is the first item I was approved. My muscle mass is considered good, to be above 59,5 Kg, considering my weight, obviously.

E Fit: Muscle.

E Fit: Muscle.

The next item is the bone mass. Another I was approved. I 3,3 Kg of bone mass, that refers to the amount of calcium, phosphorus and other elements contained in the bones. The recommendation (to keep?) is to have a balanced diet in calcium, sunbathe by 15 minutes and exercise 20 minutes daily.

E Fit: Bone Mass.

E Fit: Bone Mass.

Por fim, There is the biotype. Mine was set to stub, in other words, high body fat rate and rate of bodily muscles too high.

E Fit: Biotype.

E Fit: Biotype.

There is also a screen that shows changes of weight and body fat recent changes, with a graph showing the last month.

On the screens of statistics it is possible you can also view these changes graphically, and you can freely navigate the graph, In addition to increasing and zoom.

Final Considerations

I am quite satisfied with the Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale 2, using it daily. As informações que ela oferece são muito interessantes, além do que uma balança comum oferece. Ela parece ser bastante precisa e constante com as aferições, ao contrário de balanças comuns que mostram valores diferentes em aferições sucessivas. O aplicativo E Fit é bem organizado, mantém um bom histórico e sincroniza com o Google Fit.

Como tu conciliou o uso da balança com o amazfit pace? (os dois usam app diferente né? a baçança usa o Mi Fit e o relógio usa o Amazfit Watch).. perguntei isso pq vi que tem teu registro do sono ali no Mi Fit (e tu ja falou que usa o Amazfit pace)

tenho outra pergunta..
Possuo uma mi band 3 e encomendei um amazfit pace (deve chegar em algumas semanas).. será que posso usar ami band 3pra dormir (por ser mais confortavel) e usar o amazfit pace durante o dia (por ser mais bonito e ter GPS pras atividades fisicas)??….. eu conseguiria unir esses dados no aplicativo depois? (registro do sono de um, registro de atividades de outro)

valeu 🙂
