A solar charging panel is one of the Renpho Elis’ best features. And it doesn’t need to sit in sunlight to charge–it can harvest energy from an electric light. This make it a great option for people who might want a scale for specific periods of training, after which it’ll be stored for a while.
The scale measures weight, BMI, body fat, fat free body weight, subcutaneous fat, visceral fat, body water, skeletal muscle, muscle mass, bone mass, protein, BMR, and metabolic age. That’s a comprehensive list.
The app experience, on the other hand, is pared-back. You’ll only be able to see trends of your weight, BMI and body fat, but the good news is that all your data is exportable to a large number of other apps and platforms. That said, the process is simpler with some than others. We also found that the evaluations that come alongside in-app measurements (underweight, obese, high, low, etc.) could be inaccurate and worrying.
At 11 x 11 inches, the scale itself is on the smaller side, and only displays your weight onscreen. It connects via Bluetooth only.
