    Good concept - horrible product

    • Written by from Seattle

    All I wanted was to have a scale that would send my weight to an app, so that I could track my weight over time. This product is not providing this basic function. The scale will not sync with the app and the bluetooth connectivity won't seem to stick. I am quite surprised that Apple would let such an unreliable product grace its shelves.

    Waste of Money

    • Written by from Shelby Township

    Don't waste your money. This is just a weighing scale which sends yours measurements on a IPhone. Other than that it's does not measure your fat mass or your pulse accurately. It has a error of over 30%. Waste of money

    BROKE DOWN AFTER ONLY 6 MONTH OF USE...

    • Written by from Cairo

    Nice scale on the website, disaster in real life. Does not synchronise properly with an already backward application on the iphone. 6 months after purchase the scale simply stopped working. If the scale is not placed on a perfectly even surface it will display different readings for two consecutive measures. Bluetooth takes forever to sync with iOS 5. Do not recommend this purchase.

    Excellent scale. Accurate, consistent measurements, easy to set up,and use

    • Written by from Short Hills

    Unlike most bathroom scales that give a different reading every time you step on, this scale consistently gives readings that are within a few ounces. If you aren't standing in the right place, it tells you which direction to move, insuring consistency. Set up was ultra easy. Once readings are done, measurements are available at web site or mobile app. There are charts (editable), reminders, suggestions and tips. Tech support response is very thorough and courteous.
    It's like having a health coach.
    The product is very Apple-esque (if you use Apple products, you'll understand what that means)

    Accuracy is not one of it virtues...

    • Written by from Humacao

    The device is definitely not accurate. It's fancy connection thru the wi-fi and the charting in the iPhone / iPad makes it a great concept, but Withings has a long way to go in terms of accuracy of the device. Usually, I have to step on it several times to get an idea of how much I weight. From the first to the fourth it could give me a difference of 4 pounds in and increasing mode.

    Great product and data!!

    • Written by from Tooele

    It was easy to set up and haven't had to do anything with it after the first set up. I have been using it for the past four months and the data it provides has been very useful. I love all the features and that Withings can update the firmware and add features as they're released. The way it syncs with others apps paints a great picture of your overall health. My family of five loves to use it and the ability to push data to a doctor is very helpful.

    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!

    Nothing but issues so far.

    • Written by from Milton

    The scale itself seems to be well designed and well thought out. Unfortunately neither the iOS app or web dashboard are working 100% for me. The app crashes every time I try and access the My Devices section, which is needed if you'd like to add additional devices, or update the firmware.
    The web dashboard won't allow me to edit some user preferences, language and measurements no matter what I set them to won't correctly save. Notifications won't save.

    Basically, the iOS app and Dashboard experience have me regretting my purchase.

    It was good (but just in the beginning)

    • Written by from Oakville

    In the beginning everything was fine, but after 6 months it started to present problems and I contacted the Withings Customer Service. Again, in the beginning the service was good, but after spending one month talking to them and receiving misleading information I'm tired. Hopefully I think the problem will be solved and I should get the replacement the next week. At least that's my hope.

    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.

    Can't use the heart rate monitor

    • Written by from Nepean

    If you care about the heart rate monitor functionality at all then don't get this scale. It's wrong at least 40% of the time. I had the unit replaced and the new one was just as bad as the one I sent in. And it can be off by 50 beats per minute. Completely useless. And support will just tell you that you are using it wrong. Will never buy another Withings product again.

    Inaccurate measurements

    • Written by from VANCOUVER

    I weight in 5 times within 10 minutes and came out with 5 different measurements... You might want to look for something else if you hate returning items.

    Impressive

    • Written by from Lafayette

    I was hesitant in buying this scale because of the price but I ended up loving it. I hate to step on scales but I needed to track my weighloss after WLS. I'm not sure how accurate it is but it guides my progress very well. I do have problems with it registering my heart rate so that's the reason I could not give it 5 stars. I never figured out the reason for the air quality monitor but hey the more features the better. It was easy to set up and sync to my phone and it also syncs to My fitness pal which I love.

    Don't waste your money

    • Written by from Magog

    I had high expectations for this products as it could provide feedback as I am trying to lose weight. Setting it up was easy although there was definitely lack of instructions about using the app.
    For a while I was happy as I was regularly loosing weight. Then I got suspicious about the readings as my girlfriend's weight was getting abnormally low and you could not really tell by looking at her. We then tried our old scale and found a huge discrepancy.
    I read the support on the company's website and tried to do a reset by removing the battery. Still totally wrong. I can weight myself 4 times at one-minute interval and get 4 different readings with a discrepancy in excess of 10 pounds.
    I may as well as my girlfriend to look at me and guess my weight. Total waste of money. Too bad, I'd like it to work.

    The Best Option

    • Written by from Bellevue

    I tried a wifi scale from another company, and was wildly disappointed with it. That model took me more than 2 hours to set up and then dropped all settings the next morning. So, after reading a few more reviews, I bought the Withings model from my local Apple store.

    The Withings scale was really easy to set up -- I think I set mine up in under five minutes. The iPad app is pretty nice, but more importantly for me is that the data syncs with the rubiTrack app, which I've used for three years. Having all of my fitness information in one program was an important aspect of my choice and Withings didn't let me down there.

    Well worth the money; highly recommend.

    Fantastic Scales

    • Written by from GLENAGEARY

    The weighing scales has been a huge benefit to me losing 2 stone, each week it gives you a target which makes you watch your diet in order to meet the targets set. The only slight negative I would have is that it goes through batteries pretty quick but other than that I would strongly recommend, also the iphone app is great.

    In love w this scale

    • Written by from boston

    My boyfriend and I both have been using withings' "Pulse" and now we have this scale and couldn't be happier with either one.
    I downloaded the app to my phone and never used bluetooth for anything before so I thought it might be difficult to get it all going but it really wasn't.. The instructions walk you through it, and now that it's all set up I enjoy keeping up with how active I'm being during the day and then monitor my weight, heart rate and BMI at home. I'm not sure what the concept is behind the measure of CO2 in my house (?) but I am glad to see it is in the acceptable range.
    This review is for the scale though, so I will also say that my boyfriend and I both use it and the cool thing is that if it can't tell who is using it by your weight range (everyone prob goes up and down anywhere between 2-3lb a day) since we both have the app and it knows who we are and our ranges, but if they get close it will display both of our names on the scale itself.. you can then put more weight on the side that displays your name (using your left or right foot) and it will select the right person to update to the app.
    Our old scale seems so lame now, it was just a regular scale and was lucky to get used once a week even keeping it in the kitchen - now we both prob use this every morning and every night. I've found that keeping tabs has led me to be more mindful of my daily activity/actions towards health/weight and I have lost 10lbs with withings over the past two months.
    We're very happy with this scale.
