Best smart bathroom devices 2022: Top mirrors, speakers and scales to help elevate your space
The bathroom may not be first on the list when it comes to installing tech, but there's no reason why it can't be a big part of your smart home.
Whether it's enjoying smarter lighting, listening to your morning playlist through a waterproof speaker or checking on your progress with a smart scale - there's now a whole host of gadgets that can help bring your bathroom into the future.
Best Smart Bathroom Devices
Ultimate Ears UE Boom 3
The Ultimate Ears UE Boom 3 is a small Bluetooth speaker that's not only IP67 water and dust resistant, but it also floats. That means it's suitable for the bath itself, not just the bathroom.
The UE Boom 3 is the smaller version of the Megaboom 3, also worth considering if you want some extra bass in your bathroom, and both come with a Bluetooth range of 45 metres.
Featuring a 'Magic Button' on the top, you can play, pause and skip tracks directly on the speaker without needing your phone, and a long press will also offer access to Apple Music and Deezer playlists when connected to an iOS or Android device.
Kohler Moxie Showerhead
The Kohler Moxie Showerhead makes singing in the shower even more tempting, thanks to its built-in Bluetooth speaker.
Those looking to employ one in their setup can choose to replace their regular, non-speaker shower head with either a wall arm or not, which makes it easy to install in a number of different types of bathroom.
The speaker will also work with any Bluetooth-connected device up to 32 feet away, even popping out of the showerhead if you want to bring the 1.5-watt glory with you.
There's also a built-in rechargeable battery, giving you around seven hours of playback, and the design also comes in four different colour options.
Fitbit Aria Air
Fitbit's Aria Air is quite different from the previous two smart scales we've seen from the company, stripping back the price considerably while retaining some key features.
As ever, the experience is best suited to those already in the Fitbit ecosystem, and particularly Fitbit Premium subscribers. However, really, anybody who just wants a scale that can measure their weight, BMI and log the trends over time will enjoy the Aria Air.
Within the Fitbit app, users can also set up weight goal plans and also connect the scales to partner apps, too.
Philips Hue Adore Bathroom Mirror
Philips Hue's Adore range is ideal for those who want to add a bit of smart lighting into their bathroom setup, and the mirror is perhaps the pick of the bunch.
It comes IP44 rated, so it's safe from the odd splash, with Hue's White Ambience light around the edge of the circular design.
This ring of light can be controlled via the Hue app, naturally, though the unit also comes with remote control Hue Dimmer Switch, Hue's Motion Sensor. Voice control is also available through Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri.
Philips Hue Adore Wall Light
If you already like your bathroom mirror and just need some smart lighting to brighten up your space, the Wall Light from Hue's Adore range is a perfect choice.
Naturally, as with other Hue devices, you're able to set schedules, routines and timers, with the temperature able to be dimmed and contrasted between 50,000 shades of cool, neutral and warm whites.
You will need a Philips Hue Bridge in order to connect it up, but, once you do, the device can also be controlled via Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomKit - as well as the app, of course.
