    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.

    Almost Perfect - GREAT CONCEPT - FOUR STARS

    • Written by from Phoenix

    It looks beautiful, very elegant design, looks like a black slab of glass.

    Pairs to phone (BlueTooth) and connects to home wireless (802.11) very easily, very well designed integration, it is very EASY, if you just glance at quick start guide.

    Once connected, it's rock solid, have had ZERO problems w/it dropping off. Note when batteries ran out, and had to be replaced, I had to re-pair, took all of 15 seconds (AFTER I found quick start, so don't lose it!!!)

    Accurate readings for weight, Heart Rate, BF is hard, so I don;t know if accurate, it SEEMS accurate, and then Co2 level, have NO clue why CO2 is measured.

    What I don't like:
    I am a cyclist, my weight fluctuates 5-10 lbs after a long ride, normally 205, after a 50-75 mile ride, I might be 195. Scale does not recognize me, so only measures weight, until I tell it it's me, and it passes the data, then I have to weight again, since I ride every week, this happens multiple times a week, a real pain.

    Body Fat - I have mine set to Athlete, it appears to provide accurate (between 10-12% on the scale, but when data is passed to app on Phone and web site, that doubles to 20%-22%, which is NOT accurate.

    For the BF, seems like just a bug, for 1st issue, there should be a fix for that too, especially since I am only one using scale.

    Those two issues drop from 5 stars to 4.

    I love my scale, and I recommend, and would buy again, just wish they would fix theses two annoying issues.

    Somewhat flawed

    • Written by from Ottawa

    I've been using this scale for about 3 months now; initially, I had a heck of a time pairing it with my iPad 4th-gen over Bluetooth. Took 4-5 tries, but once I was connected and the scale weighed me properly, I had few issues. The key is that you need to install the Withings free iOS App and select and synchronize the Scale. This will check if there's a Firmware update, and i've had two so far. Sensitivity was increased and tweaked, and it has become better with time. Likewise, if the Scale is not PERFECTLY level on the floor - either carpeted or laminated/tiled/hardwood - essentially, if all four feet aren't making contact on a level floor, you will have wildly different measured weights, and the scale won't associate your weight with your 'account', and then fail at Heart Rate, BMI, Fat%, etc. The Withings App is very good, and ties in to other paid and free Apps that track nutrition etc. But as with other reviews, unless you're standing perfectly perpendicular to the scale, the measured weight will flip-flop all over the place, as much as 5-10 pounds or kilograms, and you will lose patience fast. I've become used to it, and it's the only scale that goes up to shy of 400 lbs.

    It's a great device but not that useful.

    • Written by from Halifax

    It's nice that it can measure the air quality and temperature but almost nobody needs those things. The most important job is measuring the weight that you can do it with a normal 10$ scale. But I really like the graphing because you can see the change in yourself.
    If you have enought money I would suggest it.

    Good tool to track your progress.

    • Written by from nepean

    If you're serious about your nutrition/fitness goals this scale is a great tool. The online weight and fat tracking graphs are great. The one negative I would say is that it's a bit expensive for what it is. But if you're serious about your goals this may be a good tool to have.
