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 purchased these scales because of the large numbers of 5 star reviews and first impressions were positive: the scales are lightweight and sleek and I found the app connected smoothly to the scales and was easy to use. However things went downhill from there. I was surprised to find my measurements (particularly visceral fat and body fat mass) way off to what they should be. As a regular gym user, I keep an eye on my measurements using a variety of machines and they all seem consistent - apart from this one. So whilst the weight measurement is fine, I wouldn't set too much reliance on the other figures.
La aplicación que es esencial para conocer todos los indicadores físicos no me funcionó. Báscula y app se sincronizan perfectamente, hasta ahí todo parece ir bien hasta que después subirse en la báscula y tras esperar el tercer parpadeo de las líneas punteadas, la aplicación no arroja ningún dato. Leí varias reseñas en la Play Store que indican que la app es voluble y errática, lo que me hace pensar que es problema específicamente de esta, sin embargo esto lo es todo. Así que solo termina siendo una báscula muy costosa para lo que hace que es básicamente indicarte tu peso total. Yo simplemente voy a regresarla esperando que el proceso de devolución de mi dinero no sea muy tardado.
They look great, and the app looks OK too. The weight accuracy is there or thereabouts - +/-5% compared to other scales, but go figure which one is accurate. All the other stuff with body fat etc. is bull, of course, unless you fit into their 'assumptions'. I don't. I am a long-distance cyclist... by their data I am a blob of lard. But hey. The only reason I bought these was so that I didn't have to log the weight manually. Result? Nope. Connectivity is awful. About every third or fourth measurement the scale disconnects from the app, and the only way to reconnect is to yank the batteries out, which clears the history. Fan bloody tastic. I wanted to have less hassle logging weight - but I only got more as the result. Once again: it does connect. So it's not like my Bluetooth is off or something else is fundamentally wrong. But it fails to reconnect about every other day.
As an aside, the battery cover catches broke off on Day 1. My fault probably, but be careful. I now have a week-old 'smart' scale that doesn't connect to the phone, and with a battery cover on gaffer tape. Great. I can only hope theu give up a ghost soon, so that I can get something decent.
Packed in entirely. Tried 3 new sets of full power batteries but can’t get a usable reading anymore.
The other day using it on the same surface I have every week it randomly started adding 30kg to my weight. (In the space of a week). Moved it around a few times to be safe though my floor hasn’t changed.
Second attempt it just went off. Thought it was maybe batteries so have bought and tried several new sets. Now it flickers on then goes blank and does nothing when you step on it.
Had it a couple of years but we’re talking probably no more than 100 measurements out of it which is pretty disappointing. The app has been otherwise great.
Body percentage/fat need to be largely ignored if you train as they’re way off (a problem with most of these types of scales due to the methodology) but the weight was at least usable.
Really disappointed! Probably won’t be getting EufyLife again :-( Had been recommending these to several gym friends otherwise.
The scales are fit for purpose, as others have stated the weight is accurate but the other measurements are fluff.
The main reason I am here to write a review is because soon after installing the app I discovered that my email address had been added to an Anker newsletter mailing list without my knowledge or opt-in permission! Anker seems to be related to Eufy.
If I had known that my data would be used in this way I definitely would not have installed the app and would almost certainly have shopped elsewhere for some basic scales.
So it’s a one star from me for taking liberties with my personal data!
These 'smart' scales are terrible! They don't give you accurate figures for body fat percentage and other such things. It gives you a guessed number based on your weight, height and sex. I have recently had a full body composition done and know my body fat percentage to be 15%. These scales gave me a body fat percentage of 27%, which is just ridiculous! Sending them back immediately.
Les mesures de masse grasse, de masse hydrique et de masse maigre sont totalement fausses; j'ai fait un check-up complet chez mon médecin du sport qui indique que je suis à 12% de masse graisseuse. La balance indique 21%!!!! sachant que je suis sportif (marathonien), maigre avec un poids de 68 Kg (pour 1 m 77). De plus, grosses variations entre chaque mesure. La seule mesure correcte de cette balance est le poids….
