Eufy P2 Pro smart scale review

Smart scales that offer a lot for the money.

Check price

The Eufy P2 Pro smart scales are the latest smart scales offering from Eufy, manufacturer of a range of home technology devices. As their most comprehensive smart scales to date, these claim to measure up to 16 different body composition and health metrics, offering users a detailed insight into their health. 

They offer many of the same features that you’d expect to find in any of the best smart scales, including many that are twice the price, and considerably more than many devices at a comparable price point.

There are potential issues around their design, and some niggles we felt could have been avoided, and while the smartphone app is respectable, it is a little limited in terms of what it’s offering. 

The P2 Pro smart scales are a good offering from Eufy, priced quite competitively and packing a multitude of features. They don’t quite hit the bullseye, but there is a lot to like.

Eufy P2 Pro


The Eufy P2 Pro smart scales are a good value proposition for anyone looking to get a full body composition measuring device. There are other devices that are better quality, but at this price point, there aren’t many scales offering as much as these. 





Who’s this for?

Anyone who wants a comprehensive suite of body composition metrics, without paying for a premium device.

Our likes and dislikes

  • Offers a lot of body composition metrics
  • Relatively inexpensive compared to a lot of rival products
  • The app makes the scales easy to set up and use
  • Small size could be an issue for larger feet
  • Questionable value of some of the metrics measured
  • App provides limited insight

Expect to pay

RRP: £59.99 With a price of £59.99 the P2 Pro smart scales are already pretty good value, but we have seen them drop as low as £40 during sales periods, from the likes of Amazon, if you’re willing to wait.

Eufy P2 Pro Review method

How we test

We tested the Eufy P2 Pro smart scales with regular weigh-ins under the same conditions each morning to see how consistent and accurate they were with the metrics they record. 

We also took the opportunity to compare the readings with other devices, such as the Withings Body Scan, QardioBase X and Xiaomi Mi 2 body composition smart scales, to get a sense of how closely the devices agreed with one another. 

Finally, we regularly used the EufyLife app to see how well the scales communicate with the app in terms of transferring data, as well as the extra support and insights it offers.


Eufy P2 Pro Setup

Relatively easy – but wi-fi connection can be fiddly

It was very simple to get these scales up and running. After inserting the batteries and downloading the EufyLife app, it was a case of creating a profile.

The app asks you to confirm some details, such as gender, birthday and height, to help it calculate body composition. Once you’ve done this and created a username and password, the app is ready to use.

Setting these up is fairly simple, but don’t skip the wi-fi

The scales are wi-fi and Bluetooth compatible, which means they can send data to the app even when the phone isn’t in close range. They require a Bluetooth connection for setup, after which they can be linked to your wi-fi network. 

You have a choice of whether to display your weight measurements in kilograms, pounds or stones. You can also choose whether to allow the scales to measure your heart rate, or to put them into ‘Simple mode’.

This mode turns off the electrical current used in bioelectrical impedance analysis, which is unsuitable for people who have pacemakers fitted, for example. It means the scales no longer calculate body composition but will still give you a weight reading and a BMI (body mass index) score.   

While the setup process is pretty easy, we did note that connecting to the wi-fi network was less straightforward than we’d hoped. If you don’t do this during the setup process, then it becomes much harder to link the scales to your wi-fi later. In the end we had to delete the device from the app and start the setup process again.

Eufy P2 Pro Design

Stylish but small

Most smart scales are a simple square of tempered glass, and the Eufy P2 Pro is no exception. The black exterior looks as smart and stylish as usual, with the typical warning about how easily it will attract dust and fingerprints. These scales are also noticeably smaller and lighter than many of the other scales we’ve tested.  

While the weight probably isn’t too much of a concern given that scales don’t tend to get moved around much, the size is a little more of a potential issue.

In very practical terms, these are a particularly small set of scales. Anyone with shoe size 9.5 or above will have feet that are larger than the scales themselves, which could make using them a less comfortable experience.

They are much smaller than other scales, such as the Withings Body Comp

We contacted the Royal College of Podiatry, who advised us that the average shoe size in the UK is six for women, and ten for men – which would suggest that a lot of people will have feet that are larger than these scales. 

The scales are also relatively tall (one inch from underside to top), which means they have a slightly higher risk of tipping if you step on them too far to one side.

This does have the potential to cause injury, if it meant the user twisted their ankle or fell over, for example. They also won’t work effectively on carpet, so if you do want to weight yourself, make sure you have a hard floor that you can use them on. 

And in a first for us, these smart scales come with a measuring tape included. This is so you can manually input the size of your biceps, chest waist, hips and thighs. We’ll talk more about this below. 

The bright LED display is very clear and easy to read. It only shows you a few of the body composition metrics the scales are measuring (weight, body fat percentage and heart rate). The rest need to be accessed via the app.  


Eufy P2 Pro Performance

Easy to use

The scales are easy to use once they’re set up. Simply step onto them, and they’ll measure your weight and other body composition metrics.

We did note some occasions where the measurements wouldn’t sync with the app unless the app was open on our phone, but most of the time the data synchronised quickly and without issue. 

We’ve noted in our guide to how smart scales work that accuracy of the numbers is generally less important than consistency, as long as the scales are consistent with themselves. And in this respect, the Eufy P2 Pro scales performed fairly well. Weight and body composition readings were generally in line with each other, with the sort of small variations you would expect to see on a day-to-day basis. 

When we compare them with other smart scales, weight readings were generally 0.2-0.3kg (7-10oz) different to other scales we were testing. For most people, these differences probably aren’t big enough to really matter.

The P2 Pro scales measure a lot of different metrics

Body fat percentages were typically much higher than other smart scales, often as much as eight or nine percent higher than the body fat percentage readings we were getting from the Withings Body Scan, and 3 or 4% higher than the QardioBase X scales, for example.  

While it’s difficult to definitively state which of these scales was the most accurate, these are significant differences. Then again, the readings were generally in line with themselves.

So, if you did use these scales regularly, any trends you see over a period of months are likely to be an accurate reflection of what’s happening in your body. 

The EufyLife app is also very simple to use, although one area we weren’t overly impressed with was the push notification reminding us to weigh ourselves every day.

You can turn this off in the settings, but we can definitely see how daily reminders to use the scales could, in some cases, lead to unhealthy behaviours. 

Eufy P2 Pro Features

A comprehensive list, but is it all necessary?

The Eufy P2 Pro smart scales offer many of the features you would expect from a body composition device, plus a few extras: 

  • Weight and body mass index (BMI) – which uses your height and weight to calculate whether you sit in a ‘healthy’ range or not  
  • Heart rate 
  • Muscle mass 
  • Basal metabolic rate – also known as resting metabolic rate, the energy needed for your body to function at rest 
  • Body fat – the total weight and percentage of all the fat in your body. It also measures visceral fat, the type of fat that wraps itself around our internal organs and is associated with higher risks of certain health issues such as diabetes and heart disease, and subcutaneous fat – the fat that lies just under the skin. 
  • Lean body mass – the total mass of everything in your body that isn’t fat, including water and bone mass 
  • Protein – according to Eufy, low levels of protein can cause a compromised immune system, anaemia and muscle weakness 
  • Body age – the scales compare your chronological age with the age that their measurements think you are 
  • Body type – Eufy will put you into one of nine categories, that broadly describe your physical appearance

Some of these features are likely to be more useful than others. Protein, for example, is a metric we’ve only seen on one or two other smart scales we’ve tested (the QardioBase X and the Xiaomi Mi 2 Body Composition scale). While it’s interesting to see this being measured, it probably isn’t telling you anything that your muscle mass measurements won’t tell you.

Protein is a key part of muscle, so it feels that protein as a standalone metric isn’t really needed, when your muscle mass is also being measured. 

Body type also feels a little gimmicky – with descriptions ranging from ‘hidden obese’ to ‘thin’, ‘average’ and ‘very muscular’, it isn’t telling you much that you can’t already understand from the rest of the measurements.

For some people this could be a useful way of summarising everything. But if you’re interested in your body composition, chances are you’re going to want to look at the individual readings anyway. 

It’s good to see visceral fat measurements on offer. Given the link to increased health risks caused by high levels of visceral fat, this is a potentially valuable insight to help safeguard your health. There are smart scales that cost significantly more that don’t offer this metric at all.

Some of the measurements feel quite gimmicky

As well as the scales themselves, you have access to the EufyLife app to give you more comprehensive data about your measurements. The home page of the app gives you a clear overview of some key metrics – weight, body fat percentage, BMI and heart rate. There’s also a 3D body model that represents your body shape. Again, this feels slightly gimmicky, as you can get a more accurate idea of your body shape by looking in a mirror.

And in terms of inclusivity, the avatar definitely has some limitations. While you can change the skin tone, the hair colour, style and eye colour all stay the same. This is something that could easily have been done better without a great deal of extra effort. 

The measuring tape is something we’ve never seen before with a set of smart scales. Using this to get accurate measurements for your body changes the shape of your avatar. But again, we’re not entirely sure what the benefit of this is.

It isn’t always easy to measure yourself with a tape, and it shouldn’t really influence the body composition readings. Still, some people may like the way their body shape is represented, and seeing the shape change might be motivating, if you use the scales over a longer period. 

For a more detailed breakdown of your data, you can tap on the data square to open a new screen with all the metrics displayed. Tapping on each metric will give you a brief explanation of what they are, and why they’re important. They’ll also tell you whether your measurements are within normal range or not and offer some very basic tips on how to improve them.  

Questionable advice

We question how valuable all these tips are: for example, the advice offered for our ‘normal’ protein rating was ‘keep up your well-balanced diet’ – when clearly, the app has no idea whether we’re eating a well-balanced diet or not.

At the same time, the scales suggested we have a ‘high’ level of visceral fat, and the advice was to ‘eat a healthy diet’, which does not tally with the earlier tip.  

Overall, the experience with this app was OK, but the added insights it offers are fairly superficial. It doesn’t compare well with the Withings Health Mate app, for example, which we rate far more highly in terms of how it presents the data.     

Battery life

These scales rely on using four AAA batteries, which the manufacturers claim will last for up to six months. This doesn’t compete with the best performing smart scales, but those scales are generally considerably more expensive. And often, they will have an in-built rechargeable battery instead. 

Eufy P2 Pro Value

Cheaper than a lot of rivals

With the RRP of £59.99, these are significantly cheaper than a lot of other body composition scales, which are often over £100.

Given the wide variety of metrics that are being measured, the P2 Pro smart scales are excellent value in that respect. For comparison, the Fitbit Aria Air has an RRP of £49.99, and only offer weight measurement plus BMI. 

The Eufy P2 Pro smart scales aren’t quite as premium-feeling as some of the more expensive smart scales, but you would probably expect that given the price point. You’re also missing out on some features that are available in a few other smart scales – for example, heart health and nerve health measurements can be found in some scales, such as the Withings Body Comp. But you will have to pay significantly more for those.

There are plenty of alternative smart scales to consider, depending on your needs. Here are a few examples: 

Xiaomi Mi 2 Body Composition scales

The Xiaomi Mi 2 Body Composition scales

The Mi 2 Body Composition scales by Xiaomi claim to offer many of the same metrics as the P2 Pro scales, and are even cheaper, with an RRP of £29.99. They also have a balance testing function, which we haven’t seen on other smart scales. The app experience is not great though, with poorly presented data and very limited additional insights. But they are among the very cheapest body composition scales available, so if you’re on a tight budget, these are worth considering.

Fitbit Aria Air

The Fitbit Aria Air smart scales

The Aria Air is Fitbit’s sole offering in the smart scales sphere. They’re a decent choice if you already own a Fitbit wearable device and want all your data in the same app (although the Eufy P2 scales are compatible with the Fitbit app).

They are, however, sorely lacking in body composition metrics, offering body weight, and a BMI calculation. If you’re not interested in body composition measurements, or maybe if you have a pacemaker (which means devices that offer bioelectrical impedance analysis may not be suitable for you) then these might be a good alternative. With an RRP of £49.99, they are comparable in price to the Eufy scales.

Eufy P2 Pro Final verdict

Imperfect, but may still appeal

The Eufy P2 Pro smart scales will appeal to anyone who wants the most insights into their health data at a relatively low price. There are many body composition scales that offer similar metrics for twice the cost of these. But the lower price does mean a few compromises along the way. 

In design terms, while these are nice to look at, they are very small, which means those with larger feet may find them uncomfortable to use. And because of their smaller size, it does mean they have the potential to be easier to tip up if you step on them slightly off centre, which could lead to injuries. 

While they offer lots of health metrics, we have questions over how useful some of them (such as protein levels) are. There are lots of valuable insights to be gained from metrics like visceral fat readings and muscle mass for example, but we also felt the app could have done much more to explain why these are important, and how you might be able to improve your readings. The 3D body model felt very gimmicky, and we weren’t sure it would be particularly helpful. 

The app and the scales are simple to setup and use, and once you get used to the app, the data is easy to find.  

These scales don’t get everything right, but they do offer a lot for the price. If you want to track your vital health measurements without breaking the bank, these could be a great starting point.  

Buy these if:

  • You want a comprehensive set of body composition measurements 
  • You’re looking for a simple to use app 
  • You don’t want to spend more on a premium device 

Don’t buy these if:

  • You want the best app support and insight available
  • You’re not interested in body composition metrics
  • You have feet that are larger than shoe size 9.5 (44 EU) – they could be uncomfortable to use
