Amazingly Innacurate, nearly brittle feeling
on September 11, 2008
I've had nearly the opposite experience as the previous reviewer. I have found this scale to be WILDLY inaccurate. If calibrated (by tapping the corner and waiting for it to zero out) I can step on and off of the scale 5 times and get 5 different readings that vary from 2-5(!) pounds (it is set on a hardwood floor), which has made the whole issue of weight loss a guessing game. I am left assuming I lost 10lbs because the averages have fallen by roughly 10lbs. However my doc tells me that during the same time he shows me as having lost only 3lbs and ~7lbs heavier than averaged. I will agree though, this hardly feels like it could take it's stated weight. I started at ~310 and was worried it would crack. Add to that a cryptic multi-user feature and I just would say no if this hadn't been given to me.
