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.
These bathroom scales are rubbish. They lasted only 2 weeks before they wouldn’t give the right weight, even after recalibrating them over and again. I even changed the batteries with no luck. There is no one to contact just ‘return the goods’. At whose cost I say? My advise, don’t buy them.
This scale is so great, if it would only work The first one I received arrived broken. Amazon was awesome and immediately replaced. Received the second one today. So excited! It’s gorgeous. Highly recommend this ‘extra wide’ scale. So much easier to step on and not worry your feet are ‘just so’. The scale is very attractive (yup) and the weight is lit very well in large numbers against a blue screen. If you only want to weigh yourself this scale seems ideal for everyone. So imagine my excitement when I stepped on and it worked! The numbers were scrolling like a digital slot machine (lol) and then the BEST part was my weight!! Woot woot!! I had a doctors appointment today by chance and thought how perfect to match my weight on my scale and the doctors. So...imagine my surprise when I learned at the doctors that my brand new, sturdy, awesome scale was 20 lbs off! That’s right friends, 2-0. So while I absolutely love this scale, I’m definitely going to replace it with a new one. Fingers crossed this time that 3rd ones the charm🤞.
Love this scale, I've had it eight years. Our previous one was only precise to the nearest 0.5 pound, this one displays to nearest 0.2 pounds. The previous scale would give you a different reading as you got on, got off, got back on. This one always gives the same readings when you test it by hopping on and off.
I don't have any means of measuring its accuracy, but being consistent (repeatable readings) is more important as you can more reliably tell if you're gaining or losing weight. It was plenty accurate for measuring our suitcase before going to the airport and having the airline scale measure against the 50 lb limit. I don't remember ever seeing more than half a pound difference.
Also important to ensure nothing is blocking underneath or rubbing against the sides. Either of those will prevent the top plate from depressing properly, which will give you a smaller measurement.
If it ever wears out, for sure I'll get another one of the same.
The first scale I received was obviously defective. I have weighed anywhere from 160lbs to 355lbs. The video shows what happened one time. I contacted Amazon and they sent a replacement. Installing batteries in the replacement produces a gray screen with black numbers that slowly fade away. Then stepping on this scale produces absolutely nothing. And yes. I've tried new/fresh batteries in each scale. Very disappointed in the product and also in the way "chat" works, although I don't believe it is the "chatters" fault but the stupid "gotta go by these steps" rather than just listening to what the actual complaint is. In the end, both the product and Amazon were big disappointments.
This scale is supposed to do one thing, one thing we’ve all bought it for, and that’s too accurately weigh our body..... it doesn’t do that. When I first got the scale I’d just get on, see the weight, and go about my business. One day I decided to get on twice and to my surprise, there’s a second weight. I get on again and I weigh something else. Now that I found this out I have no idea if I’m in the window of getting a replacement or refund anymore.
I’ve been weighing myself daily multiple times each time, and to get a rough idea of what I weigh, I get in and off 5-6 times. That’s ridiculous.
I'm big so the normal scales were too small for me to stand on. This is very comfortable to stand on and the display is big and bright. The reading stays in the display after you step off long enough for you to read it. Love it!
No frills weight scale. Good quality and nice looking. Reasonable price. Large read out screen so you can see the weight numbers clearly. No Bluetooth connectivity. Does not massage feet nor tell your fortune.
