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 had high hopes for this travel scale because it came recommended.
Not accurate: The accuracy of the reading is entirely based on how you stand on the device. With my full-sized scale, I stand on it, get a reading, step off and try again - I receive the same reading. With this tiny scale, I could receive readings that are multiple pounds apart depending on how I stood on the scale. I'm trying to stand on my toes, or always stand with exactly the same part of my feet hanging off the device, and it's a big pain. I have zero confidence that this scale is giving me an accurate reading.
Not easy to use: Standing on the scale is uncomfortable. Since parts of my feet are always hanging off, the reading isn't the same two seconds later.
Not easy to read: My feet don't fit on the scale, and how I position my feet determines what weight I see on the display, so I'm forced to stand in an uncomfortable position waiting for the reading to come up on the screen. The scale itself is very small, and the weight screen is a portion of this very small scale that I can't cover with my feet.
I am extremely disappointed in this product. I was very excited having seen multiple positive reviews.
This scale only works for folks with a superb sense of balance. I was unable to make it work for me. When I attempted to balance, I guess I would wobble enough that the red light never turned green. If you can stand on your tip toes for a full minute with no wobbles and nothing to stabilize you, it might work well for you.
