The Review

Let’s start with a video unboxing:


The packaging for the Smart Weigh scale is attractive with information on the front and back.  When you open the box you’ll find the scale protected by cardboard and wrapped in a soft plastic to keep it clean and safe during shipment.

Once you get everything unpacked you’ll only find the scale, user guide and four AAA batteries.



The scale has a tempered glass top and it’s silver in color. The display is located at the top center and it’s nice and large. The scale is 12.5×12.5×1 inches in size and it weighs about 4.4lbs.

On the bottom you’ll find your rubber non-slip feet and the battery cover. Above the cover is a small button that is used to clear the memory and to change the units from pounds to kilograms or stone. The bottom of the scale is white plastic and overall the scale feels very well made and it looks really nice.

The display is easy to read, it’s a bright light blue background with nice large black lettering and the unit underneath.




When you step on the scale it’s not immediate, the weight will blink three times and then will go solid letting you know what your weight is.



I recently reviewed the Taylor Smart Scale and it said I weighed 170.8lbs and that was almost two weeks ago, so 170.4lbs that the Smart Weigh scale reports sounds accurate to me.



The Smart Weigh scale can actually display colors besides the blue, as the display can turn green or red. The scale turns green if your weight has stayed the same or you lost weight but it turns red if you’ve gained weight. The scale is smart in that it knows who is on the scale and it remembers, it will display the your current weight and then below it the difference so you know. The scale can record and remember up to eight users at one time.




The Smart Weigh SMS500 digital bathroom scale is very nice looking, I love the silver and mirror finish. The scale is made of tempered glass and plastic and it seems accurate.

The SMS500 can let you know if you’ve lot or gained weight by remembering who is on the scale and it can remember up to eight people so everyone in your house and a few friends can use it.

All in all I like this scale a lot, it looks great and from my testing it’s accurate and useful.


+Bright, easy to read display
+Well made and looks great
