So I purchased this scale at Target a few days ago as I had started dieting and wanted to watch my BMI and fat percentage as well, and we only had an older version where the red needle moves to your weight. Anyway, after I set my personal attributes (height, sex, and age), I hopped right on it and immediately saw a 4-5 pound difference from our old scale. Now, a lot of that could be the old scale was off, which I do believe it was; however, the weight watchers scale definitely had its issues. Just to retest it, I got back on it several times throughout the day (often right after another) and there were times it would be as different as five pounds! Just from stepping off and getting back on moments later! Now, I have had scales similar to this before and sometimes your weight shifts 1-2 pounds, depending where your feet are placed and how you are standing. That is normal. Five pounds is out right! I even had my BMI change an entire number (not even a decimal point) so every time I weigh myself, I make sure to do it at least 2 times, and if I notice a change, I get out the old scale and see if there is a change there as well. I wouldn't advise buying this.

We bought this scale on sale from Target and have been using it for a year. Just reading some of the other reviews here confirmed what I suspected. It is not accurate to within a tenth of a pound, even though the display reads down to tenths. I weighed 200.0 for four days in a row this week. Then, yesterday I dropped to 197.8 and was that same weight again today. I've never seen this much consistency in my weight, followed by over a 2 pound drop in one day, until I started using this scale. I looks nicer in our bathroom than the Tanita body fat digital scale it replaced but certainly isn't as trustworthy.

I have been trying to lose weight for a long time. Currently I have been following my healthy eating plan, and not cheating. When I step on this scale, at times it gives me the same weight day after day. I then have to try and trick it, by wearing shoes to make myself heavier, or stepping on it backwards. This scale is not accurate, and very inconsistent. Save your money! I am now buying a different scale, and I am hoping for better results. Very disappointed.

Like others have posted here, the scale is horribly innacurate. I've been using it for close to a year now and have found it seems to have 'memory' issues. There is no way I have weighed 188.1 exactly for the past 5 days.....naked, clothed, shoes on/off, purse in hand, etc. I too am trying to slim down and an accurate scale is important. I would not recommend this scale to anyone.

The main shameful scam perpetrated on any buyer by the manufacturer of this scale is putting a decimal point after the number. Don't be fooled. IT IS NOT ACCURATE to a TENTH OF A POUND. Its likely not even accurate to a whole pound. I tried weighing myself, got a number 197.4, say. Picked up a quart can of paint and then weighed myself. Still 197.4, with an additional pound in my hand. Its therefore safe to say this crappy scale is no more accurate than a mediocre mechanical scale and definitely NOWHERE near as good as a good mechanical scale. Why Weight Watchers would allow them to user their name just goes to show how easily a name can plastered on anything and it doesn't mean squat.

Also note, recently when I slid the scale moving my foot on my bathroom floor, the "foot" came off. Problem was that "foot" had a sensor in it and it ripped a wire free. As a result the scale will not weigh any longer. Wrote to Conair (a Chinese manufacturer) ten days ago and they said "We'll be right with you!" and never heard back.

I wish I had read these reviews before I purchased this scale. I bought the scale about 7 months ago went I started my weight loss journey. I would faithfully go 3 weeks a month without a weight change on this scale and then show a 3-5 lb weight change. Then it would register a 1-3 lb weight change every week for about 3 weeks and then it would be "stuck" again for 3 weeks. At first I thought it was me, and I would push myself harder and harder to lose weight until I saw weight change. Then after 3-4 months of this cycle, I figured the scale must be flawed but I didn't want to spend money on a new one. I just got on the scale tonight after an hour long workout, after which I was drenched in sweat, and my weight was the exact same as my last measurement. There's no way that's correct. I'm sad this scale is bad. it's unfortunate that Weight Watchers of all brands would endorse such a poor quality product. I wish I could get my money back.

Purchased the scale about two months ago and have been experiencing the same issues reported by others. The weight read never changes unless the difference is at least 4 pounds. To reset the scale, I've started holding a stack of books for a first weighing, then taking an actual reading. As for accuracy after that, I'm not sure. I have contacted ConAir support and demanded a replacement device that works, referencing my experience that match the negative reviews here as well as a recall for this model (I don't realistically think they'll do it, but it should help illustrate my point).

I bought this a few weeks ago, and, not expecting any problems with it, threw away all the packaging. Now i can't return it it Meijer, where it was purchased from.
This scale, to be honest, SUCKS! It does not register the correct weight upon first stepping on it. It registers either the last weight that was on it, or something a few pounds higher than the correct weight. I need to step on it 3 or 4 times, making sure I get 2 or more consistent readings before I dare accept it as fact.
From a person on a tight budget, this purchase truly hurt the pocketbook :(

By far the worst, most inaccurate scale that I have ever used. If a pound is 16 ounces, one-tenth of a pound is 1.6 ounces and you should be able to weigh yourself, pick up something that is 2 ounces in weight and get a different weight. Well, I am lucky to be able to do that with a 5 lb dumbell. It is to the point where I cannot trick this scale. I wish I had seen these reviews before I purchased this piece of junk. If I were Weight Watchers, I would take my name off of this product. Conair should be ashamed that they have put this into the marketplace.

Like some other reviewers, I bought this because it measures in 0.1 lb increments. However, I found it to be terribly inaccurate. I weighed myself wearing light clothing, then added heavier clothes and shoes, and I weighed less with the heavier clothes!! Another day I weighed myself twice within minutes, and the scale gave readings that were 3 pounds different! I am trying to lose weight, so having an accurate scale is important to me. I cannot rely on this one and plan to buy a different kind. I am very disappointed in this scale.
