This scale was a great value for the price. I have shopped around various stores and online...and got the best deal here. The scale features body fat , bone mass, body water, and weight measurements. Seems very accurate. Was a little disappointed that my order was stuck at UPS for 5 days without movement in Louisville...but it eventually arrived in good order.
The scale is easy to set up and use and I really liked it for the three weeks it worked. When it stopped working, I went through the trouble shooting guide in the instructions, then called the manufacturer. They were pleasant enough and said it was under warranty, but that I had to return it to the retailer. I had not returned something to Overstock. I was very pleasantly surprised at how well they handled the return and replacement. Keeping my fingers crossed that the new scale keeps working. If it does - excellent product.
Did the image onsite match the product? yes
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
How is the quality of the product? Worked great, then had some odd error. Under warranty and return was a breeze.
my only problem with this scale is it will not be accurate if you have any metal in your body, it says on the instructions. there is no mentiion of this in the discription on the web page at o .co.that limits the use of the scale. so if i had no metal in me it would be just great! maybe a better explanation of how some things work would be appropriate.

This is a good scale and would recommend to anyone looking to purchase one. Easy setup. The scale measures weight accurately and consistenly each time. The body fat % was close to other equipment I tested with. I would definitely purchase again.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality. Not too impressed with the plastic components underneath the glass
I bought this as a gift for my brother, and the first one he received didn't work. Thanks to Overstock for a quick and painless return process -- he actually recieved the new scale before he'd even had a chance to return the old one (approx 3 days!). The new scale works beautifully, consistently and is of great quality. Here's to staying committed to one's health!
I may have received a malfunctioned scale, but it did not work. 90% of the time, it would show a consistent weight (which was 10lbs below correct weight), and 10% of the time it was way off. Disappointed.
After only one month of use, this scale has slowly become more and more inaccurate- back to back readings now as much as ten pounds difference on the same surface, same time of day. I have access to both a veterinary scale at work and a scale once weekly at a wound care center at a hospital- both of which are calibrated regularly and inform me that this scale is useless.
Love the look, the programming options, and the idea- but the accuracy is just not there.
It is weight sensitive. If you are over 200lbs I doubt it.mommasue2 on Jun 27, 2013
Thank you for your question bette7. The manufacture states that the artificial hips may cause interference with the measurement readings, since it sends a wave through the body mass. And cannot guarantee a person, since it will react differently on each person based on artificial joints etc. Have a great day.

I purchased one of these recently but cannot figure out how to use the muscle mass and bone mineral function. The instructions do not include this information either. How do I go about measuring my muscle mass and bone density with this scale?airmilt on Aug 30, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
