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 the scale to replace a 10-year-old ozeri solar scale I had before. Due to its age and my much darker bathroom, the old one just wasn't working anymore. I figured since that one lasted 10 years might as well go with the same brand. I'm significantly disappointed. The accuracy of the scale is terrible. If I don't put it in the exact same place in my bathroom every time it can be off by almost 5 lb. So to be perfectly honest I don't 100% know how much I weigh which is kind of important since I've been trying to lose weight. There is only one spot in my bathroom that is ever so slightly bumped. But the rest of the floor is totally level. Like I mean with a level level. There's no reason that there should be so many discrepancies in the numbers. I first noticed it because I had such huge fluctuations day today that I hadn't had before. So, I started stepping on it more than once because it seemed so odd. Sure enough depending on where I put it in the bathroom the number would be different. To top that off, it eats batteries. I'm on my third set of batteries. How can a scale with no light use so much battery life!? It is used once a day. So I can only recommend this because it's sleek looking and easy to read, but if you want real accuracy and battery efficiency.... Look elsewhere this is cr*p
This scale is terrible! It looks great, but it is totally inaccurate. Every time I step on the scale, it gives me a different weight. I tried it 5 times in a row and each time it was different, sometimes as much as 10lbs off. I tried standing in the same position every time and making sure I was very still. I even tried it in different areas of my house to make sure I was on a flat surface. Not matter what I did I had this same issue. There is no reason a scale should be this touchy/vary as much as it does.
If you are unable to stand perfectly still, like my boyfriend, this scale will NOT even stop calibrating.
I attempted to use my new scale by weighing myself & it just keeps scrolling through the numbers up & down & then eventually shuts off/goes blank. I attempted to put a 5 lb bag of sugar on the scale & it wouldn't read it, it went blank, when I attempted to give it a little push to get it going, with my hand, still nothing.. the numbers are very hard to read when standing on the scale. I would recommend not buying this scale.
This scale is highly inaccurate weighed my self 6x and all 6x was a different weight. Don't bother purchasing it spend a few more bucks on higher end model cause this one falls under you get what you paid for situation.
