In this Review...

In this review of the HumeHealth Body Pod, I tested it for 3 weeks after hearing about it through a social media influencer. Overall, I rated it a 4.6/5 stars and I explain what I like and don't like about the Body Pod by HumeHealth.

As a busy mom of three young kids, I haven’t been prioritizing my health and fitness for the past few years. I’ve been struggling to lose weight, which was once a very easy task for me.

I’ve been researching different products on the market to help me get a better understanding of how my body reacts to food and a few other factors.

When I came across HumeHealths Body Pod, I knew right away that I had to try it because it gives an accurate reading of your body's composition. In this article I’ll be covering my whole experience after using it for a few weeks and explaining exactly what it measures. And, of course, I’ll be discussing if I think the Body Pod is worth the price.

Product Reviewed: HumeHealth Body Pod

Duration of testing the Body Pod: 3 weeks 

What I integrated The Body Pod With: HumeHealth App

Rating Hume Body Pod After 20 Days of Testing

Overall Rating: 4.6/5

The Body Pod really does give a full picture of your health, as it claims it does. I’ve never had a more accurate reading of my body composition done like this before. The science and accuracy behind this allows the user to understand how their body works and to reach their goals.

Ease of Use: 5/5

This could not have been any easier to use. Right out of the box it gives you simple directions to download the app and get on the scale. They have simplified the process which makes it perfect for everyone (even non technical users can do this).

Accuracy: 4.5/5

The Body Pod uses 8 frequency sensors that deliver precise weight, full body composition and heart health. There are advanced sensors in the handle which scan your torso, arms, legs and heart at a 98% accuracy. 

Integration: 5/5

HumeHealth easily syncs data from the smart scale to your Apple Watch, Oura Ring, FitBit and more. This can help analyze sleep patterns which will be assessed.

Insights & Coaching: 4.5/5

This scale and app are highly personalized to fit your exact needs based on your individual body metrics, needs and preferences. I have a personalized nutrition plan which breaks down how many carbs, proteins, fats and sodium in order to lose weight to reach my target goal. 

Value for Money: 4/5

The initial cost of the Body Pod is around $299 (currently on sale for $229) and it is important to point out that HSA/FSA are accepted. As for the app cost, I started with a one month free trial, followed by the regular price of $71.99 for the year. Coming in at about $6 a month, this is much more affordable than many memberships out there, especially for such high quality, personalized information. 

My Experience With The Body Pod by HumeHealth

When I first opened the box, I expected for there to be a long setup involved to get the scale up and running. Instead I was met with four very simple steps to download the app and start using the Body Pod immediately. I was very impressed with how quick and simple it was to step on the scale, pull the handles up and within a few seconds have all my metrics uploaded to the app.

I filled out my information on the app and indicated that my goal was to lose weight, so goals were set for me based on my metrics. As someone who has always struggled to drink enough water, I immediately noticed that my Body Water was measuring low on the app. It explained that at 46% body water, my fat loss potential was being reduced by 63%! Reading that made me really get serious about my water consumption.

Having all of this information at my fingertips just by stepping on the Body Pod has been a game changer for me. The amount of data that you receive on the app was a bit overwhelming at first, but once I continued to step on daily and compared to previous days, it became very helpful.

I’ve never had access to all of these metrics before, and I truly think that this will continue to help me understand my body and how it works.

Pros and Cons

What We Liked

  • I love how easy it is to use from the initial setup, to the daily use of the Body Pod.
  • The metrics breakdown is unlike anything else I’ve ever experienced before. It is so detailed and specific, which has been amazing
  • The Body Pod itself of small and sleek. It doesn’t take up any more space than your average bathroom scale, but can obviously do much more.
  • I love the personalized coaching through the app to support my weight loss needs and how they take my data to help drive my success.
  • I like the fact that the accuracy rate is 98% due to multiple sensors.
  • I like being  able to determine how my body reacts to food, sleep, medication and stress on an easy to read dashboard.
  • On the app there are classes and programs available

What We Didn't Like

  • The cost of $299 can be an expense that not everyone can afford 
  • The yearly cost for the app is an extra expense you’ll pay

Who Should Try The HumeHealth Body Pod?

HumeHealth designed this Body Pod with everyone in mind. Anyone who is looking to better understand their body and build healthy habits should give this a try. HumeHealth claims that 80% of people fail to maintain their health goals, and by creating the Body Pod (a simple yet effective tool) it makes it easy to stay on track. The Body Pod really is ideal for all ages and genders. Everyone should have access to their personal health data in order to maintain or create healthy habits. 


The price of the HumeHealth Body Pod is $299 (currently on sale for $229) and while this may seem like a lot at first glance, the amount of detailed and personalized information that you are getting is unmatched in my opinion.

It’s vitally important to point out that HSA/FSA are accepted. The app is an extra expense to factor in, coming in at $71.99 for the year with the first month serving as a free trial period. The breakdown of the app is about $6 a month which is a very fair price for all you’re getting from it. 

Is The Body Pod by HumeHealth Worth It?

After using the Body Pod for a few weeks now and setting long term goals for myself based off the information from the app, I feel confident that the Body Pod is fully worth the money. As I’ve mentioned before, the 98% accuracy of information is unlike any health data I’ve ever had before and it was all from the comfort of my home. 

I’m able to keep track of not only my weight (broken down by each part of the body), but my muscle and bone mass, body water percentage, BMI, metabolic age and many more factors that I didn’t even know could be assessed from home. I’m now keeping a close eye on my body fat percentage and monitoring my progress as I continue on my health and fitness journey. 

I’ve been struggling to lose weight for over a year now with little to no answers from my doctors. This Body Pod has given me a great deal of insight as to why and where my body has been holding onto fat and even how to change my current plan to show results. On the app you can access your body metrics which breaks down your muscle and fat percentages in an easy to read model. 

Overall, getting healthy and understanding my body is very important to me. Being able to use the Body Pod in conjunction with the app to set daily activity and nutrition goals makes the process of getting healthy much easier. 

My Tips for Using The Body Pod

When using the Body Pod, I recommend placing it in the same place (make sure its on a flat hard surface) daily. Make sure to look at the pictures provided on how to correctly stand and hold the handle bars. You want to make sure that you’re holding it correctly so that the sensors can accurately pick up your readings. When first using the app after stepping on the Body Pod, look through all of your metrics and explore everything the app has to offer (which is a lot).
