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.
Will NEVER buy another Homedics product.
After having this scale for 1 year (like another reviewer i just saw) i am almost positive it's out of whack. I didn't realize until a couple of months ago that it has memory. It will weigh the same twice in a row, no matter what. Fine, I can weigh myself multiple times. But in the last few days, it seems like it just is not right, like the weight is going up (when I'm on a VERY strict diet and KNOW i'm going DOWN). This isn't a vanity thing... I know it's off because sometimes I weigh myself at night before bed because I know I'm about 2-3 pounds more than I will be the next morning. And in the morning, it's only saying about a .6 difference. It will give me up to a 1.5 pound variance if i step on it multiple times. Not good when I need to know every single .2 that i've gained/lost while on this diet.
I never used this scale for the body fat features b/c that's never accurate without medical grade equipment.
Maybe after a year it just gets de-calibrated? I am pretty sure I can't lose inches while gaining/maintaining weight. I am not lifting weights or doing anything that involves building muscle. It's just weird. I ordered a different scale and I plan to compare for a couple days.
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.
