Xiaomi has announced the new Mi Smart Scale and it's available for just $15. If you're after new scales in China with smartphone connectivity, look no further.

The new scales sport 50g precision and can measure in either kg or lbs. But since these are no mere generic scales, purchasers will have the ability to track weight and BMI with the Mi Fit app. The Mi Smart Scale is compatible with iOS and Android.

An LED display hides behind a white glass platform, awakening when required for a Bluetooth 4.0 connection to be made. It's positive to see Xiaomi aggressively launch a new product in its connected devices line-up to rival competitor offerings.

As an added bonus, should you use the Mi Fit app available for iOS, you'll also be able to enjoy Apple Health integration. That alone makes this piece of kit an absolute steal. There's no word yet as to when the Mi Smart Scale will be launching in other markets, but we'll let you know as soon as we hear more.
