To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this scale a couple of weeks ago and I LOVE it. It is accurate to the ounce with very easy-to-read numbers. I have been looking for a new bathroom scale for a while and this was recommended by a friend who received hers as a Christmas gift. As we were both looking for the same type and have similar tastes in many things I gave them a try. I was not disappointed. I would definitely recommend them.
Scale arrived in a timely manner, was well packaged and not hard to set up. The numbers bounce around quite a bit. It apparently has to reset itself every time you move it. This entails the scale running through a series of weights (none of which reflect your actual weight). The 2nd time you weigh yourself, I found it still does bounce around quite a bit. I was left wondering what my actual weight was. It was easy to change from kilos to lbs. The numbers are not very bright also, in dim lighting, they are harder to read than a back-lit one. I have to admit that my biggest disappointment though was the colour. I looked at many different scales and I fell in love with the bright turquoise colour. But it is nothing like the picture. If you hold it up to the light, you might say it's a very dark turquoise but sitting on the floor, it actually looks forest green. I never would have purchased it had I seen an accurate depiction of the colour. I had hoped that it would be a match with the décor in my bedroom but it isn't at all. Perhaps I'm being too picky about esthetics but if the colour is important to you, I would suggest looking at some of the buyers photos, which more closely reflect the actual colour.
My old scale gave me a different weight every darned time I stepped on it. I'd have to average out each of 3+ different weighings; it was SO annoying! But not this one, I just hop right on, it does its thing, and I get a read out, which is easy to see/read. Furthermore, if I step onto it again, it reads out the exact same weight. I'm SO happy with this scale!
Very inaccurate. Body weight fluctuates so wildly I have no idea what I weigh. I don't mean the normal fluctuation throughout the day. I mean 3+ lbs difference after a couple hours (not eating or exercising). I wanted to test the scale so I did not drink too much water, eat or exercise in a couple hours and this scale changed my weight by 3 lbs. So I do not trust this to be accurate, which is the ONLY thing a scale should do. Nevermind fancy add-ons, just be accurate!
I have size 12 feet and most scales seemed to be 10 to 11.8". This one accommodates my feet nicely so they aren't hanging off the scale when I'm on it. Also seems to be accurate and consistent. Easy to read display too. Good scale!
Like many other scales at this price point, the 'accuracy' seems to come from a memory effect. The scale remembers objects that weigh close to the previous object and reports the same weight. Take off a t-shirt and weight again, and chances are if you t-shirt was quite light, you would see the same weight. Unlike some other scales at this price point, this one is not back lit. I missed that, and somewhat regret this purchase, as it's hard to read in dim light.
This was a fantastic buy! We needed a new digital bath scale, and this one works accurately and has a great design. It comes in a selection of colours for any decor. Shipping was fast and product packaged well for safety. The price was extremely reasonable and for a quality product. Would highly recommend! Thank you!
It's a nice scale. Inexpensive and seems high quality. The only thing I don't like is that the weight display stays on longer than my old one did. No more "sneaky" weighings in shared bathroom situations, as the weight displays for several seconds than it seems like it should.
