To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not 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.
These scales were advertised as one of the more accurate. Carried out a test with certified weights up to 100 kg. It appears they read a little heavy.(0.3kg) Unfortunately that is within the general accepted tolerances for bathroom scales. I am sure there would be a calibration procedure that is not available for the general publc. As an Instrument technician I am probably being a little pedantic.
I've had this product almost two weeks, and I was really loving it up until a few days ago. It seemed to be accurate and consistent. However, this past weekend it gave a slightly unbelievable (low by 2-3lbs) weight, and I recorded it, only for it to go up by 3lbs the next day. I know weight can vary based on time of day, so I assumed it was just that, even though 3lbs seemed like a big difference. But this morning I tried it again, got a normal reading, recorded it, and went to weigh myself again to test it, having done nothing except walk across the room and not moved the scale--and it went up by 1.2lbs. Keep in mind both times I weighed myself I did it multiple times at once to assure consistency, and it seemed positive of the lower weight and then positive of the higher weight, though nothing had changed. I do move my scale frequently since I don't have floor space for it, but I'm careful to zero it out or "calibrate" it every time I step on it. A difference of ~2lbs might not matter if you're just occasionally checking your weight, but for someone trying to track it like I am, it really throws things off. I'll probably order a different one.
When I first go on the scale it gave me an err reading. Looking in the book it said to heavy for scale . The max for this scale is 300 lb. I weight in the 190's.. I tried it again a few hours later and it showed my weight to be 198. That to is wrong. Next I went to my doctor and got weighed there it was 192.5. I came home got on your scale and it still said 198. Needless to say I am not happy. Every time I get on it is is a different weight. I am using it as a ball park scale. I'm guessing it will keep me informed as to my approximate weight.
Loved this scale when I first got it. Stylish and looks good in my bathroom. I *think* it was weighing accurately at first... But, alas, after 2-3 months, I started to question the accuracy of the scale -- I always weigh myself twice, mostly to help me lock the number into my head so I can remember it long enough to enter it into my weight management program. At first the numbers were always the same on first and second weighing, but after a couple months, there would be a difference: sometimes only a few 10ths of a pound, sometimes 2-5 lbs difference, and even occasionally as much as a TEN pound difference. Of course I tried stepping on the scale again and again and again and would get a different number each time. I just can't trust this scale.. 18 bucks into the trash.. and I learned my lesson: will spend more on my next scale...
I’ve had this for a little over 3 years now. It’s worked flawlessly until recently. The most recent occurrence is that the scale turns on by itself as if someone stepped on it, gives you a 0.00 reading because no one is standing on it, then shuts off…only to turn on again a few seconds later. This will keep happening until the battery dies. So now I need to replace my scale with another one, I won’t be getting this one again.
While this scale looks nice and seems to be built well, you can't just tap it a bit to turn it on. More importantly, it seems to change its mind about how much it differs from two others scales we own.
Other scales in the house agree within a 1/2 lb about our weight, but this one not only different but inconsistent in how much different. If you line them up, this one will be 3.5 lbs higher some days, and 5 lbs higher on other days compared with the others for a given person.
The scale does stick to its first answer for repeated weigh-ins, but seems to change its mind if you let it turn off and then turn it on again later even though it's allowed to zero each time before stepping on.
Now, I don't expect a bathroom scale that costs under $30 to be accurate enough for buying and selling gold bars, but it's the inconsistency that bothers me. If you're working hard on losing weight it's nice to know and celebrate that pound difference and know it's due to your hard work and not the scale picking today's random number.
