    Excellent in theory, but...

    The unit is extremely difficult/impossible to setup. I had used the PC based seup on 2 computers and the web based setup on same 2 PC's, iPhone and iPad. None of them worked. I kept on getting a WIFI ERR and it would not connect therefore work. When I stand on the scales, it ends up with an ERR message, so even when not 'WiFi connected', the unit does not work. Very expensive waste of time for me. For those wondering, I am well below the max weight of the scale, so I know the ERR was not because of my weight.

    This unit will be going back at the earliest convenience. Thanks but no thanks FitBit.

    I have a lot of experience in setting up home networks, & could not get this device set up whilst using the utility. Once I went with the web based setup, I was up and running in under 60 seconds.

    The device works particularly well - quite amazing considering it relies on 4xAA batteries. My family's weights are all distinct enough that it knows who is who. The online reporting system is very comprehensive, I love the ability to record foods & exercise also, & am now considering purchasing 2 of the Sleep & Activity monitors.

    I was looking at the Worthings equivalent scales, but am now glad I saved the $50.

    The foods in the iPhone App are very North America centric, but you can add Aussie equivalents. A bug in the distance walked shows miles, but when saved will revert to Km's.

    Well done Fitbit.
