I just received my QardioBase 2 but I previously purchased the QardioBase Smart Digital Bathroom Scale: Qardio Fitness, BMI, Weight & Body Composition Analyzer - Bluetooth & WiFi Sync with App, Opal White. The QardioBase became my favorite Smart Scale, I liked it much better than the other smart scales I owned, but it had one problem in particular.
First, what I like about the QardioBase, and now the QardioBase 2. It tracks my weight, body fat, and muscle and presents it to me in an easy to track app on my iPhone, and integrates the information with Apple Health. While I don't use them I appreciate that it has settings to turn off some of these for people with pacemakers, and has a special tracking mode for pregnant women when they set their due date.
But what really made it great is the haptic feedback it gives both when you get on the scale and when it has figured out your weight. On my previous scale I had to keep looking down to see if it had figured out my weight and that movement impacted the measurement. With QardioBase I step on, feel it vibrate, wait for the second vibration then step off to read the display. It is awesome and I feel like I am getting more accurate readings than on my previous scales.
Now the problem with the first QardioBase was it wobbled. It didn't feel very sturdy and you would some times lose your balance when stepping on it. The company tried to fix the issue by sending you extra feet and they improved the situation but there were still some issues. That is completely gone with QardioBase 2. No wobble at all. As a matter of fact it no longer really has feet. Just sits directly on the floor.
As an added bonus is also takes care of the other minor complaint I had about the original QardioBase: it uses 8 AAA batteries. The QardioBase 2 is rechargeable with micro USB. The manual claims it should last a year without recharging but I just received my scale so I haven't verified that.
Overall I am very happy with the QardioBase 2. Improved in all the right ways to make it as close to the perfect smart scale as you can get.
