While this scale is sleek, very portable, and has an easily-read digital display, I have found its weight calculations to be quite unreliable. Within minutes of stepping on and off again on the scale under exactly the same conditions and at the same time of the day, the read out can vary as much as 2 or 3 lbs. Overall, I was quite disappointed in this product and have gone back to my old, heavy scale, which I find is much more reliable, although not nearly as portable as the Weight Watchers Scale.
When the scale arrived I couldn't figure out what might be in the package. It was feather light. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was the scales I ordered. It's nice. So light weight & accurate too. Great buy!

I have never owned a scale. I thought this would be a small one, which goes with our small bungalow. But you have to pick it up, and put it down to turn it on. Then you have to wait for the 00.0 to appear. Then you have to step on it quickly, or you lose your chance to be weighted and you have to start all over.
It seems accurate. I don't get the feeling it going to last the ten years the battery is supposed to last.
For the money, I'd buy a 'real' one.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The product is more 'toy - like'
How accurate was the on site description of the product? accurate enough
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I'm less than impressed
The scale is very lightweight. I had trouble turning it on because of this. It would come on only when I stepped hard enough, and then the scale flipped up and banged on the floor I bought another scale that comes on as soon as you step on it. It is not so FLIMSY.
My scale does not turn on to 000 when I tap it in the middle with my foot. I need to lift it up and drop it down to get it so that I can weigh myself. Am I doing something wrong or is it the scale?rivraf on Apr 29, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
