I tried all kinds of things, but it still doesn't work.
Robin Winstead
I bought this scale because my other scale stopped working after five years...a Tanita scale that never made me question its validity.
Angela
The only difference is that it has worked twice in the past 4 weeks, depending on how lucky you are that day.

The SC-540 is a very light-weight product, can be easily moved around. Large lettering to see your stats clearly. It shows you what your last reading was when you turn it on. Only complaint: you have to read the stats very quick and know what the numbers mean because it flashes on for 1-2 seconds with 2 sets of 5 indexes on each screen. (whew, all in one breath!). You also have to be barefoot with your feet slightly moist to get your readings, so be ready to stand on some cold stainless steel for about 10 seconds!

Prior to purchasing this scale, I had a cheap 25 dollar one that only checked body fat. Now I know my body fat wasnt 17% because the scale at school said it was around 8%. Since then Ive lost weight but my old scale still said I was around 15% body fat.

I decided to purchase a new scale because the old one eventually broke. This thing works amazingly! It is as accurate as the one at the University as well. Id reccomend this scale to anyone who is trying to work towards their goals of losing weight and dropping body fat.

The extra features are a bonus to an otherwise wonderful piece of equipment.

I purchased this scale about a week ago. I was very excited that it measures not just weight but fat, water, muscle mass and bone mass. Took it home very eager to see what it had to say, I got my weight (wasn't happy with the number I got, but that's my issue). The scale was accurate. Then I got an Err msg for all the other measurement areas, so I tried everything the booklet said, to no avail. Thinking it was broken, I asked my son to try, and it worked great for him, so I tried again & still got the Err msg. Asked my other son to try, again, it worked great, everything came up. I tried all kinds of things, but it still doesn't work. I think it might be a technical flaw. Both my sons are under 200 lbs and all measurements came up without a problem for them. I, on the other hand am over 200 lbs. and believe that there is an issue with weight vs. other measurements. Homedics should take a look at it because everyone in my household under 200 lbs gets their readings without a problem. I think I will keep the scale for them, also, it gives me incentive to lose so that I too can get all my measurements.

There is a reason so many low reviews, so no need repeating. This thing stopped working very soon despite countless attempts at resets, batteries, etc. Pathetic that a company would let so many lemons get to customers.

Will NEVER buy another Homedics product.

Great scale for everyday use, looks really cool in your bathroom. If you want to try the fat, water, muscle, bone mass settings do it after taking a shower with your feet a little wet. Try the athletic setting like some people have suggested. You can create different profiles for your whole family. The scale includes batteries and it works great doing its primary function which is giving you accurate weight readings. Additional readings for body fat and such should be use for reference only.

I bought this scale to replace a regular scale so I could keep track of my body composition. The scale is not consistent. It reads the same exact weight for days while my old scale says I've lost a couple pounds. To check its accuracy I created a new user with my age and height, and only then did it tell me I lost weight. If I can't trust the weight feature of this scale, how can I trust that the other readings are accurate?

I have been trying this scale for about a month and results come out pretty much the same all the time.. + or -
It does it's job very well, just keep it on even surface and stand straight!

By T. Lowry on July 15, 2010
I upgraded from another Homedics scale that only had body fat % in the hopes of getting better information. Mission accomplished! This scale gives me good information in a quick (often too quick) easy to use format. My only real complaint is that the information only stays on the screen for a second or two before cycling to the next set of information and then turning itself off. To read the information fully I almost always have to turn the scale back on and have it display the previous numbers again.
The actual numbers for Body fat, water and muscle percentage are good estimates. Unfortunately, from day to day they vary up to two percent. For instance, in the last three days my body fat has been measured at 22%, 24.1% and 22%. This implies that over the course of a few days (weighing first thing in the morning after) I first gained 4.3 pounds of fat and then lost 4 pounds of fat which is obviously ridiculous.
Still, these numbers are consistent enough for me to know I'm somewhere in the area of 23% body fat. It'd be great for the scale to give me a 100% accurate result every time, but I doubt any scale on the market can do that. The technology just isn't that precise yet.
Overall I'm quite happy with the scale and I'm glad I bough it. Not a perfect product, but a good one.
