    Only synced for 3 months

    • Written by from FPO

    Was fantastic the first few months. But after that, it would no longer sync to my iphone through wifi or bluetooth. So disappointing. Now all i have is a very expensive plain ol scale. smh

    Great iPhone app and connectivity for inaccurate measures

    • Written by from Bentonville

    Great iPhone application, excellent connectivity through bluetooth and WIFI.

    But the scale is accurate to 0.2 lbs on weight measurement. This means that weighting yourself twice in a row would most likely not lead to the same result.

    The fat measurement is on the other hand completely unusable in my opinion. And this is not just this scale. Most scale are using a technology that is susceptible to several parameters like your level of hydration. In my case, it means that I ended up with a difference of close to a 2 lbs of fat gained for a decrease of a 1 lbs of mass within 24 hours! Simply impossible considering the activity.

    The heartbeat monitoring is working 2 times out of 3 and I can't say if the rain prediction is working. I lives in Seattle, it's always raining anyway!

    Unfit to Be Sold by Apple

    • Written by from Berkeley

    I've had my Withings scale for approximately four months. Other than being beautiful, it's proven to be a mediocre product unworthy of being sold by Apple.

    The weight is consistently off by between 1 - 2 lbs. We know this because we use a medical-grade scale at the gym almost daily. The heart rate monitor also is completely inaccurate. I have a resting pulse of 60, yet the scale rates me between 75 and 99 every morning upon rising from bed.

    The real problem, however, is the wireless connection. Invariably, it fails after one full day, requiring a cumbersome reset and re-sync. The batteries are charged, yet the wireless connection fails after working for approximately one day. This began happening after a firmware update and has been this way for almost three months.

    I would not purchase this product knowing what I now know about it.

    Only the Weight and Air Quality Measurements are Reliable

    • Written by from Cincinnati

    The heart rate and fat mass measurements are all over the place. I'm a 20's something male with a healthy BMI and on other devices it tells me my resting heart rate is 60-70. This scale 90% of the time tells me my heart rate is 90+ bpm with many of them being 100+bpm.

    The carpet feet are a joke unless you actually have extremely cheap carpeting so be prepared to place it on a hard surface. The only reliable thing about this scale is it's weight and air quality measurements. Overall I would NOT recommend this product. I tried contacting support and they blew me off saying they were aware of the issue but didn't provide any further information. Is it hardware related? Do I need to RMA my unit? It is software related? When is the patch coming. Very disappointing experience for a pricey scale.

    Now Worth Money. Flawed.

    • Written by from Mequon

    I've had the Withings Smart Body Analyzer for a few months now, and I would say it's definitely not worth the money and is still not ready for prime time.

    If you stand on the scale three times in a row, you will get three different weights, which makes me question it's accuracy.

    The heart rate measurement only works 1 in 4 times. I would say on average I have to stand on the scale 2-4 times before I get a measurement, and they are all over the place.

    The scale only sends data to their app, so I end up having to manually enter it for the other two apps I use, which really defeats the purpose of having the thing.

    I wouldn't waste your money on this flawed product.
