  • Excellent scale
    I've only owned the scale for a month and when I started looking, I chose this scale because of the other reviews. The scale was easy to setup to measure weight, hydration and body fat. It's accurate and easy to read....more info

  • FANTASTIC SCALE
    This scale is very accurate and works great. It is nice because you can set a goal and track you progress. It will tell you how much weight you have lost so far and how much you need to lose in order to reach your weight loss goal. It will also tell you your body fat and hydration precentages. It will also save all these readings for up to four different people. This is a incredible scale and helps you get motivated to lose weight. ...more info
  • Weigh Up There
    When I set out to purchase a Scale I looked at just about every scale available on Amazon and read as many reviews as I could. I settled on the this scale because of the other reviews found here, the looks of the scale, and price. Yes I even compared this model with others at WalMart and Bed Bath & Beyond.

    Many other reviewers mentioned problems setting up the scale, having it work right out of the box issues, judgements about accuracy, and ease of use. Some even mentioned no matter who got on, everyone weighed 174.4. If that were me I would keep the scale. However, when mine was delivered I opened the box, and the batteries fell into my lap, I saw where they went and put them in all without reading the instructions. Now if you have ever set the time and date on a digital watch with buttons for advancing and a button for setting, you will feel at ease . Those of you who still have VCR's with the clock blinking will want to glance at the SIMPLE instructions first. They are very clear and easy to follow.

    After you insert the batteries, place the scale on a flat surface (does not have to be the floor). Follow the instructions. You do everything with just two buttons. The two buttons you see below the display only do two things each - one is a SET/SAVE function the other SCROLL/HISTORY. You either press and HOLD or just press and release the buttons to set the various settings available. This scale will keep track of the tiime and date, your height, age and gender. You can even set your weight goal. This is a neat feature because after you set and store your first "official" weight - cuz you know you are going to get on and off this thing at least 10 times to see if it is consistent, it will show you how much you have lost since your last weight and also show you how much you still have to lose. So if you don't gyrate around but stand still and straight, you weight should be the same dead on each time.

    But you ask, Do I really have to fiddle around with setting all those features, I just want to know how much I weigh?. Well of course you can. Just don't push any of the 4 buttons on the front. Just walk up to the scale and tap the top or center of the scale as if to say "hey I'm here to weight myself - wake up", the display will come to life - it will cycle the display light while it zeros out, then once you see the BIG 0.0 you can climb on and get it over with. But if you linger a bit longer on the scale, it will sense that you want to know more, so while the shower water is getting hot, take a moment to see what it says about your hydration level and your body fat percentage. If your feet bottoms are as dry as the desert or you're still wearing socks, you will get a "e" error reading. The manual mentions this at the very beginning. I don't put a lot of confidence in the body fat and hydration readings. Too many things can influence the accuracy of the readings, but as a guide it will do.

    Some people expect too much from a $50 scale, but if you are buying this because you are tired of just watching The Biggest Loser and see everyone else climb on a scale and lose weight, you can climb on this scale and watch the digits pop your magic number right up without fear of being voted off. And when the numbers start to go down it will be accurate enough to give you encouragement that you are losing. Of course if you are not trying to lose weight, then this will be just as accurate for those who are eating every twinkie they find and want to gain weight.

    Oh ... are there any cons? It could be bigger and I wish it didn't creak when I got on it. (I'm not any where near the max of 375lbs it can hold but it does seem to twist a bit when the first foot goes on. The display could be a bit bigger for these tired eyes, but it is bright enough. I would buy it again if I needed two or if I wanted to give one as a gift. (But if you do buy it as as gift, make sure they really like you, you know?) :)...more info
  • nice bright LCD ,accurate weight
    I highly recommend this scale with the super bright LCD and accurate scale. It is really good.
    The AAA battery is easy for repalcement, better than the button battery widely used in other brand scales....more info
  • Overly complex, doesn't work
    If you are looking for a scale that you can just step on and see your weight, this is not the scale for you. You have to go through this elaborate process of inputting information and set up and of course once I did all that it wouldn't display my weight, just an error code....more info
  • Good Product
    Seems like the body fat % calculator is way off but it works for weight and is very useful...more info
  • Stay away from this one......not impressed at all
    I am UNDERWHELMED to say the least... This machine is either malfunctioning or my weight changes every 5 minutes by at least 5-6 lbs.....I find it totally inaccurate at weighting anything.. one minutes it is one weigh the next it is 6 lbs different.. Now really... I changed the batteries thinking it was that but no.

    It won't even weight a bag of 5 lbs of sugar correctly.

    Save your money and spend a little more for a good reliable scale but not this one.........Very disappointed........more info
  • Wonderful Scale
    This scale is amazing. If you are like me you workout only to find that your weight is staying the same, so I decided to find out what was really going on. This scale measures body fat and water levels so you can see if you are just retaining water or really putting on the pounds. The scale is very easy to read and set is a breeze. The price was just right and I find the information this scale give is invaluable. The only drawback that I found was the body fat percentage was different than what my trainer has for the gym it registered about 10% higher so that is something to keep in mind otherwise I would tell everyone serious about their fitness goals to buy this scale....more info
  • The best scale ever
    I have owned this scale for a few years now and it is the absolute best. It is easy to program easy to read and accurate. As the other reviewer indicated, you can easily account for weight fluctuations from day to day by tracking your hydration levels. It is nice to know your fat % as well and it helps to keep motivation up when you see the numbers go down.

    You get the whole picture with this scale. It even tracks your weight so you know how much you are up or down, which I find helpful. Another great thing is that the batteries last forever - and when you do change them, it doesn't wipe your data out... it must have an internal backup battery which is helpful because you don't lose your history. I will be buying my mom this scale for Christmas as she watches her weight and will enjoy having this tool to help her in those efforts. I'd recommend this product 100%. Very durable (my kids push the buttons often) and holds up to lots of use. Now if it would only lie to me about the pounds.......more info
  • Good scale
    I bought this scale after my old one died in my recent move. It looks great in my contemporary bathroom. I like the saving feature, but I am still figuring it out. The numbers are large for those of us who are vision-challenged. Obviously I don't like the reading on the scale, but it seems consistent. I can weigh myself several times and always get the same reading. Great price and great scale. I would recommend it....more info
  • not bad and weight but fat? not so much
    These things measure weight pretty acurrately but body fat is way off. I guess as long as it is consistent....more info
  • guilt your way to losing weight
    Using this scale is fairly easy (R*E*A*D the instructions; it won't be easy if you want to "wing it") to set up, and to use. A downside: one can't password protect one's numbers to keep others from seeing them, so there is potential for "unauthorized feedback," as up to four people can program it for each one's use.

    Note: one must be barefoot for the body-fat percentage value to work--the scale does not like be-socked or shod feet. If all one wants is to see what one weighs at a given time, a more basic scale will do the job, but this one offers better support for maintaining a diet/exercise plan. The key is to READ THE INSTRUCTIONS. ...more info

  • Very good scale with nice features and easy to read display
    This scale is great. It provides consistent weight and body fat measurements, is easy to use, and tracks up to four people. It takes a few seconds to calibrate itself before you can step on, but otherwise is the perfect scale....more info
