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.
Start with the positives. Very competitively priced compared to some of the other more well know brands. Build qauilty is good and they look quite classy. Nice glossy finish and feel like they will last. The app is good and easy to use although I've never connected to any third party apps. Even though you can set up multiple users they have to be linked to the same email meaning everyone using the scales is linked to the same account. Seeing past data and trends is easy and the graphs are finished nice. A wealth of information is recorded by the scales which could be found useful for some..... Problem is the accuracy of this data. The reason I purchased these scales for for this information but the accuracy just isn't there. I train for triathlons year round and consider myself to be in decent overall condition but after stepping on these scales I've found that I'm apparently 25% body fat, classed as obese and no muscle mass. Obviously not what I was expecting or hoping to see but since I know I'm fairly lean, more or less an ideal weight and carry some muscle I can't help but feel disappointed with these scales which is why I'm scoring them lower. They are good scales for everyday readings of weight and if your not concerned with accuracy then I suppose as long as the numbers are changing it doesn't matter what they are but I was hoping for better, suppose you get what you pay for though.
Scales fine to start with but now seem to be inaccurate overnight. Eg I somehow gained 5lbs from one day to the next The app’s fine, not at all sure how accurate it is, a bigger deal is the sudden influx of health related emails from US providers. As another poster has said, beware the data T&Cs! They override any EU GDPR protections and you are giving away your right to privacy to the creators of this app. I accept I should have read the small print, but this should not be possible. I’ve deleted the app so now these are just quite expensive scales
CONS: There's no real way to very accurately measure body fat, whether it's these scales, calipers or DEXA scan. I would say these scales are considerably different to what I've had before. I'm athletic and lean, have trained 4-5 days a week in my adult life, but was pulling a 26% body fat % on this scale - I'd be very surprised if I had that much. If you're buying these, I wouldn't get too hung up on what number it throws out, as my experience suggests it's not that accurate - the same with all the other data it throws out. However, if you're using this scale alone, it could help to consistently track your progress.
PROS: weighing scale seems pretty accurate, product and branding is pretty nice and the app is good from what I've seen so far.
On a whole these are very good scales for usability and easy to setup. The app is also very good! Where these scales are a BIG let down is due to the very inaccurate body fat readings! These scales think I am 30% body fat when really I am around 17% (measured properly). When I contacted the support they informed me this is based of their algorithm and not actually a ‘reading’. So they really need to sort out their algorithm!
Selling a scales in the UK, that can't display in stones is next to useless, they might as well show the weight in talents, or grains as it would be as meaningful to most Brits as llb's or Kilo, do young'uns even use Kilos I don't know, hold on...I have just asked my 18 year old daughter and yes they still use stone. Not too sure if I am going to send it back, all the other stuff that it measures on the app is, meh really if it can't do the basic of showing weight in a measurement that I understands.
I am sure that they are great scales but I was unaware that they can't be used if you have a pacemaker until I had opened the box and read the instructions. It would have been helpful to see this restriction easily on the website
So I was really excited to order and receive these scales but I’m not sure they measure up to the reviews. I’ve had them for a month and I’m questioning how accurate they are. This morning I weighed myself seconds apart and had two very different results. I’m just not convinced.
Had to order 2 of these as the first one came with some strange brown sludge on the sensors. After the replacement one arrived it was easy to set up and use after downloading the app - but I'm not happy with the fact only one person's mobile device can sync with the scales. Each extra profile must be added on that one person's device, so I'm not sure this can be as personal as I thought. What's the point if one person has to have everyone's personal info on their own phone?
I got this yesterday and have measured my weight 3 times in the last day (evening and morning measurements). It's matched the weight given on one of my other scales (not a smart scale) and i like that it can be tracked on the app easily, which is incredibly easy to install and pair.
However, it's telling me that my bodyfat is 36% which is outrageous. I'm a regular gym goer, and had this measured last week and was told it is 21%, so this is a huge error. Not sure exactly how its measured on this scale but its definitely wrong!
