Works great! I weighed right before going to my doctor and my weight was within .2 lbs on the doctor's scale, so I guess it's pretty accurate. I like how it comes on when you step on it and if you stand still for a couple of seconds; it'll lock that weight in.
I got this product opened it up, pulled the tab in back, stepped on to the scale it went up and down in numbers then turned off. I thought maybe the batteries were no good, replaced the battiers the same thing happen only it never turned on again. I threw it in the trash not worth the waste of time and trouble to return it! terrible product!!!
My new scales are a big improvement over the ones I had before. Best of all are the large numbers making it so much easier to read. I suspect that these scales are also far more accurate than the others that I had for many years. In addition, it takes just a short time to get the final results. I'm pleased by the purchase.
Overall this is an accurate scale but like any scale, the results will vary depending on the surface. Also, as other reviewers have stated, the scale retains the prior weight just recorded. So if you step off and back on again, you are actually getting the prior reading. You need to either have someone else get on the scale, weigh something or any other way you can get a different reading, then you can step on again.
This lightweight scale works well. Two problems with this scale: If you want to weigh yourself again within a few minutes, the scale gives you the first reading. It keeps the numbers in its memory for a while. I haven't confirmed how long it takes for the scale to readjust itself. Also, it takes AAA batteries, which, in my opinion, don't last as long as AA batteries would. It would have been better had the scale not required any batteries. I take the blame for not having thoroughly read all of the items' features/specifications. Other than those two issues this scale is a helpful piece of equipment to have on hand.
This is a VERY EASY to read scale WITH LARGE ,BRIGHT BLUE NUMBERS. While I don't need the high capacity I REALLY LIKE THE LARGE PLATFORM. THIS IS GREAT FOR PEOPLE WITH BALANCE OR VISION ISSUES. I HAVE BOTH, HENCE THIS IS THE PERFECT SCALE FOR ME. REASONABLY PRICED, TOO. THANKS OVERSTOCK.
