Great quality and great appearance.
Great quality and great appearance. First I'll cover a couple weak points. The wording next to the numbers is really tiny to see if you are 6 feet tall. You might need to write down what the numbers are or memorize them as there are four numbers. The first is the weight which is obvious and the second is percentage of body fat but then the other two I cannot recall. And I cannot see the tiny letters. I would say it's pretty easy to program. Now the great news is that when I read the instructions again I realized I could just stand on the scale and it would do all the work. I did not need to press the button as indicated in one of the instructions. It really looks great. I like the fact that it has full size panels instead of making me aim my feet into a small space. This is one of the best looking scales we have purchased and is very useful.

Does what I want.
What can I say? It's a scale.
As far as weighing things go, I’ve measured it, and it seems to be very accurate. I love the fact that I can just step on it and give an answer. Also, it’s not obvious from the picture but the scale is pretty wide. I liked that a lot too. The numbers are big and bright, so big that I can read them without having my glasses on.
As far as all the other measurements go, they’re reasonably accurate based on a caliper test. I’m not expecting perfection because I know how these things work. There’s a built in error because essentially the scale is measuring connectivity at various frequencies and then using a “table” to figure out the numbers. Since the table is based on averages it’ll never be completely accurate, but like I said, is close enough. The reality is if you’re at 30% body fat and it measures 28%, the scale is still pretty much telling you what you need to know. If you’re below around 15%, there’s an athletic mode that you can set so that the numbers will become more accurate. If you know you have a low body fat and you don’t set it properly don’t blame the electronics.
I also liked the fact that you can set it to automatically monitor different people based on their weights. Of course, if there are two people using the scale that have effectively the same weight, it’ll get confused. Other than that it’s a great scale.

Not accurate or reliable!
The looks of thia scale is very nice. But thay is were my positive imprewsions end with this product.
I an extremely disappointed in this product, as it is inconsistent and inaccurate. It "overweighs" my wife and I be 5-10 lbs each and everytime. Which if it was consistent in its misweight we could at least know how much to take off to find our real weight. But it is so inconsistent that I can step on it and weigh 364 lbs, I step off wait 30 seconds and now when I step back on I weigh 369 lbs, and the range is so wide because it varies between 5-10lbs difference each time. This is not very good as a weight management as it is not acurate.
As for the other options, water, bones mass and body fat I don't those can be very accurate if the scale is so off which should be the most basic function. I understand I might have gotten a lemon which happens but it's a lot of money to spend for a lemon.

Works best if you read ALL the directions
Read the directions and then set it up. Most of the problems noted by others seem to be from a lack of reading and following and instructions, or at least it seems to be that way to me.
As soon as I pulled the plastic tape to activate the scale, the display read "LO." That meant the battery was low and needed to be replaced - 4 stars not 5 for that! I immediately checked the batteries and they were properly seated, so replaced them. Yes, I replaced BOTH the day it arrived.
As soon as I put in new batteries I was able to program the Scale for twp users. The profiles were easy to set up and you can set it for up to 8 users. the Selections for people are Male, Female, and Athlete (?). I am sort of confused by this new gender - but then again there are so many gender types today, why not! You also program age as well so it does give a fairly accurate reading.
Make sure you follow the instructions and dampen your feet. Since it uses body resistance to find your % Body fat, Water mass, Muscle Mass, and bone density, this is important. (we tried dry and damp readings and there was a change) I would recommend you track readings weekly at most; you will not see many changes daily if any!

inaccurate, changes numbers everytime you step on the scale
Bought this because it was digital and thinking that it may be more accurate. I am also 180Lbs and wanting to lose weight by documenting my weight each time I hop on these things.
I put this on a flat ceramic tile and everytime I weight myself it doesnt know if I weigh 175 or 179. It also sometimes jumps to 182LBS and 170 everytime i step off the digital scale. Rating 2 stars. Its ok.

I had to replace this as soon as I got it a d that was easy enough but the replacement I have been using just does not want to work anymore. I set it for my height and age only, flat ground, stand on it and it gives me differnt readings. I didn't care before but now I am on a diet and precision and consistency are important. A measurement took should work like it's supposed to. No excuses. For no matter how long. I really wanted to like this but my trust is betrayed.

This scale...wow. Inexpensive and extremely accurate. As a nurse, I was looking for something to help me keep accurate weight checks and monitor a few extra things. Simple, straightforward, and fairly priced.

This scale is pretty inconsistent. I'll step on the scale with 180 then do it a second time and get 173. I cant trust it to give me a proper measurement. So i just ended up going to a doctor to get a better read on their scale

This is a great tool to help monitor weight and fat loss. Often stepping on the scale is a drag for me. This scale helps keep things in proper perspective. I can get on it and see I am not only losing weight, but fat as well. Or I can get on it and see I am losing fat, but no change in pounds lost. I can tell if I’m drinking enough water too. It is great for accountability. I weighed before going to the doctor the other day. Their scale weighed me in st four pounds heavier than my scale! I asked when was the last time their scale was calibrated? Because I am sure my scale is more accurate. No response of course. Good purchase. I would recommend and have.

Don't buy it!
This scale is not consistent. I have a regular old school one that has a needle, but I wanted a digital one so I could read it more easily. Unfortunately, I found that my weight will vary anywhere from 3lbs to 10lbs based on where I actually have it on the floor which makes absolutely no sense. My regular old scale that just had needles and numbers would say 155lbs, but this digital one would in the same instance say 163.8lbs...Also your feet have to have a certain dampness as well to be accurate. All in all it was a waste of money.
I bought this cause it measures other stuff like body mass etc but if the weight isn't accurate how can I believe the other numbers are??
