After tons of review readings I settled on this scale because it seemed to carry the most accuracy. It's been three months now and it reads reliably. All of these types of scales have some kind of algorithm that calculates the variables, but this one seems to have a more pronounced skew between the genders. I created two user profiles with only the gender varying and it was ridiculous how some of the readings changed, especially visceral fat. The other thing you want to be careful of is how high up you hold the sensors while taking the initial weight. The scale is sensitive and any slight shift or lift can throw off the numbers. On the whole it's a good machine with lots of options but the same limitations as many of the rest.
The scale looks great, it was easy to program and easy to use. My only issue is that the body fat % reading varies by about 10% - I find this really odd, how can my body fat go from 30% to 40% within a day? The reason I bought this scale was to be able to track my body fat % and I feel like this product doesn't let me accurately do that.
When the scale arrived for the first time and I unpacked it, I was very surprised on how sleek and thin it was compared to my old one. I've had my old scale for over 8 years now, but I decided I finally needed a new one. This one is very modern and works excellently. It saves your weight profile and even tells you the body mass, water weight and muscle weight. This is a great addition to any home, especially those who are trying to lose weight and need to make sure what exactly they lost. I love my Bowflex Weight Scale!
