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.
So we bought this smart scale after a lot of research on BIA, nearest alternatives, the order was delivered promptly by Amazon. We were till then considering Renpho and Actifit as alternatives to buy. Let us give you a summary which might help you in your purchase: 1. None of the scales are accurate and gives indicative "ball-park" figures. So this device is as accurate as other. Don't get confused.. it's for the purpose of tracking your progress. If you are an athlete don't use these and go for a full body analyser that you get in professional gyms. This is perfect for fitness enthusiasts. 2. All other scales are close to or above 5k. It is offering no additional special powers. Trust me, save your money. 3. I trust Eufy brand. It makes amazing gadgets and haven't disappointed me in the quality or finish of this product. 4. That said after seeing many western unboxing videos, I feel the cardboard packaging is different (looks cheaper but doesn't effect product quality in anyway). 5. The app experience is detailed enough to give you good insights and helps you track progress and tweak your diets and exercise frequency in accordance with end goal.
This is a value for money product. Get it as cheap as possible from any e-tailer, save your money and don't go behind fancy ones like Aria, Actofit, Renpho, Omron etc. Use it regularly. Most importantly, make us of the data and control your diet and exercise.
Sleek, slim,yet sturdy enough to weigh upto 100 kg and more. Is definitely a smart device , Bluetooth compatible (didn't show connected to : eufy notification in phone but the results got recorded in the eufy app directly, so I guess that's how the Bluetooth works for this. Runs on AAA Batteries (I love this part the most). Weights as much as a 15 inch big laptop, around 1.5kg to 2 kgs. Not very helpful in weighing your luggage before flying (not enough space for that, Hence inaccurate results). Cannot be used as kitchen scale, did not weight the bag of grapes 😝, I can't say about others pets but this scale did not read my pet's weight (a 3 year+ turtle). So I guess there's a minimum weight limit which I've not found yet, will update once I experiment that. But for humans to measure and record weight tis pretty neat 👍.
So, the initial product delivered was flawed with the reading. So, placed Replacement request, and within 2 days the new arrived. While the big carton box was open which was shown by the delivery person, the inside main box also I could see was opened. However, I was only interested in whether the product is new or not. And it was. The battery was also new. And the thing works fine. Weight measurement is accurate to the 'T'. The app works absolutely as YouTube video demonstrate. Had my extended family come and take their BMI, protein, water content, etc measurement and the results seem okay to me.
So - Yes, hopefully a good buy in the long term too. Thank You.
Honestly it is disappointing. I have a 2,5X cheaper Bluetooth scale that is much more accurate . To get your weight is is great and this is all. I've been training and going thru diet cycles , and I have some expectation to be off as a body fat %, but this is way off from everything I used. Do not waste you money , For me it is late for return, maybe I will save you of doing same mistake as me. DO NOT RECOMENDED. Just advice for the manufacture , add and option to preset bodyfat % as advance mode, that will fix everything and will make device useful. It is all math not that much of electrical resistance to take the measurements . If I spend years in the gym and have my BF pre-estimated I could follow my progress, but per this scale readings is not possible
