Test – Terraillon NutriTab
After offering you a test of Terraillon’s connected personal scale, today we are back with the NutriTab connected scale. Like the Master Coach, it is linked to the Myhealth app, which is very practical and suitable for everyday use.
The price for the connected scale is included €39.99 on the brand’s website. So what does it offer daily at this price?
Our product of the day arrives in a small cardboard box colored white and red. On the front we first discover its name: NutriTab and that it is connected thanks to Bluetooth. We learn that tooIt is used to weigh our food to know exactly its nutritional values. Likewise, thanks to the Myhealth application, it will be possible to scan food barcodes for even more precision. Finally, the data is stored in order to be able to follow our posts on a daily basis.
On the back there is a reminder of the previous properties and a highlight of their application. Also, we’re going to learn this here3 AAA batteries are required to operate the NutriTab, which are not included in the scope of delivery, as with the MasterCoach. Too bad again!
The NutriTab has a two-year warranty.
Inside the box, the NutriTab is protected in a cardboard protector which has served its purpose as it got to us safely.

Let’s discover together the NutriTab and its implementation. In itself, there is nothing special to do, except to insert the three AAA batteries beforehand.
Once the batteries are installed, the connected Terraillon scale starts up by itself. No additional installation needs to be done, even in the Myhealth application, since it is automatically recognized (thanks to Bluetooth) when you want to add the weight of a food item.
It can therefore already be used as soon as the batteries are inserted. It’s great because it’s quick and easy to install.
The MyHealth app is pretty standard, especially if you’re used to Fitbit or Amazfit apps, for example.
When the application is opened, we go straight to the dashboard where we can find the information about our MasterCoach bathroom scale (the app’s “Weight” tab by default). If we go to the Nutrition tab we will have access to all of ours Meal history for the day and our calories ingested the previous days.
You may have noticed, but you can see “tracking curve” in this nutrition menu. Here we can create curves according to the number of calories consumed or more precisely the number of carbohydrates or fiber. It’s quite interesting to see what we eat the most in our diet.
Below these curves we have access to the meal history. I used it a lot during the test because when we click on the meal/food we get the number of carbohydrates it contains (but not that, you’ll get it, we also got the calories, fiber, lipids, etc. ). As a diabetic and on functional insulin therapy, calculating my insulin dose based on my diet has served me well.
Now add a food, how does it work?
All you have to do is click on the small “+” at the bottom center of the application’s home page. You start by selecting the food from the list or by scanning the barcode. In this example, I searched for it in the list. By default, the application enters 100 g. To get the NutriTab value, click the Weigh with NutriTab button.
If you are within range of the connected scale, you will automatically receive what is displayed on the scale. The value therefore refers to the position of the previously entered 100 g. At the same time, we receive all the nutritional information about our food. Here 64 kcal, 1.9 g protein, 12.6 g carbohydrates, 0.5 g fat, 0.7 g fiber and 0.3 g sodium. In short, it is very complete.
Next time we do it will inform the phone’s date and time by default. It is editable if needed.
Honestly, weighing all your groceries can get boring fast. But in the case of a change in diet or, in my case, diabetes, it can be very interesting to better control our diet.
In everyday life, the networked NutriTab scale is very practical and, with its sparkling red colour, very pretty to look at. However, it can also quickly become painful and anxiety-provoking to include everything you eat on the application. So be careful not to fall into abuse despite everything.
In the end is the NutriTab remains a relatively classic scale per se. That What gives it a real plus is its Bluetooth connectivity This allows you to retrieve and keep a history of everything in the Myhealth application.
On the other hand, we regret its screen, which should not work otherwise than being in front of it. For example, if we are standing on the side (because in this situation we are cooking next door), it becomes difficult to read the numbers on the screen. It is necessary to position yourself high up to be able to read them in the best possible conditions.
Terraillon offers us with NutriTab a connected kitchen scale that is very interesting to use, especially in connection with its Myhealth application, very complete and easy to use. However, as with the MasterCoach, we regret the lack of batteries in its basic packaging. This is an element that must therefore be taken into account when purchasing, at the risk of having an unpleasant surprise when you arrive home.
In use, The NutriTab has proven to be a good ally for treating my diabetesThanks to her, I was able to know the exact number of carbohydrates in my food while noting the number of calories I was consuming. The Terraillon connected scale has enabled me to realize that I’m generally not eating enough (less than 2000 kcal) every day. If we go by the recommended calories for a woman my age, I’m a little under.
Nevertheless, without its use, the NutriTab remains a classic kitchen scale which has some visibility issues especially on the sides.
Terraillon offers its networked kitchen scale for less than 40 euros on its website. A fair price when you look at the competition. Also, let’s not forget that Terraillon is French. For us it will be money!
Thank you Terraillon!
