This report shows you five established, reliable digital bathroom scales, performing as owners expect. Our unbiased recommendations are based on combined owner rating scores, which we also share with you.

This ratings-driven view of the market often highlights unexpected models for sale. It can also steer you away from a 'bestseller' - if the owner ratings reveal poor performance.

The Best Digital Bathroom Scales 2019

How does it work?

We begin by building a list of digital bathroom scales with more than 50 ratings at Amazon UK, Argos and John Lewis. This jumps straight to the established products, and the rating scores reveal how they've actually performed, according to numerous owners.

We then remove the digital bathroom scales with less than 4 stars. We now have a list of the higher rated models, with a credible amount of opinion.

We use the same criteria for all our consumer reports: each product must have over 50 reviews and more than 4 stars. After sorting the list by ratings, we compile this Top 5.

Our Notes on this Market


Owner ratings in the digital bathroom scales market are heavily influenced by two main factors: accurate readings and consistent results.

Owners are also most satisfied when scales have a large, clear display and are slim and stylish too.

Bonus features of the best bathroom scales: multiple memory options, BMI readings and other body fat measurements.

Innovation continues in 2017, with more accurate sensors, faster readings and connectivity to smartphone apps.

We have been looking at this market’s ratings, each year, since 2015. You can see the previous year’s best bathroom scale ratings here.


In this 2016 update to our report on the best bathroom scales, we see a big change in the Top 5.

Argos, Tesco and John Lewis stocked between 25 and 50 models, Amazon a lot more.

There are a huge amount of reviews for some of the bathroom scales, over 3000 for one set alone. As usual, the four shops we use to gather data, each sell many different models, some exclusively.

Tesco and John Lewis do sell bathroom scales – just not the best rated models that made it into our Top 5.

We would class the bathroom scales market in the UK as quite hit and miss. There are some great bathroom scales out there, with many satisfied owners. But also inaccurate scales, which led to poor reviews.

We see more innovation in this market this year. Better sensors, easy to read screens and other data being collected than just weight. For example, bone weight, fat as a percentage and water variations.
