However, there are 4 important things to know about the Taylor scale if you want accurate weight measurements.
1) The scale is supported by four feet; the weight sensors are located under the two feet on either side of the readout and the other two feet are fixed to the bottom of the scale just for support. If you drag the scale across the floor (e.g. pull it out from under a cabinet) it is better to lift it by the end where the readout is located and drag it on the two fixed feet; this will reduce the risk of damaging the pressure sensitive feet.
2) after moving the scale, the first reading may be off by as much as 0.6 lbs
3) the scale remembers one reading and it will not change this reading unless you change the weight by more than 1 lb. This means that, if you move the scale you are likely to get an incorrect reading the first time you step on the scale; if you then weigh yourself repeatedly, this same incorrect value will appear every time you step on the scale. This memory makes it appear that the reading is repeatable (a desirable characteristic) but repeating an incorrect value is misleading.
4) to get an accurate weight measurement after moving the scale, first pick up an object (e.g. a book) that weighs about 2 lbs and step on the scale holding this object; then put the object down and step on the scale again to get an accurate reading of your weight.Read more ›
I got this scale just for the "upscale" look. It's sleek metal with glass. They state that the lithium battery lasts a long time, so we'll see. It does take four rotations of the `zeros' to fly by before your weight is shown (to the half pound). It looks great and it's cheap. It's thick glass, so if your weight shows more than you expected, you can toss this sucker across the room and it won't break!
1) If you move the scale before weighing, initialize it by tapping it on and then letting it cycle off.
2) Wait 5 minutes between repeat weighings. Apparently even when the LCD display turns off, it's still working.
3) As a last resort, take the battery out for 5 or 10 minutes then replace it which will reset.
4) There is a 1% tolerance in accuracy. However, if say the scale reads 2 lbs high, it should be consistently 2 lbs high.
In fact, all I had to do was put the scale in a place where I could stand on it and leave it there (prior to this, I had moved the scale before each weighing). This solved the problem completely--the scale is now consistent and reliable.
I just purchased this scale to upgrade from my current analog scale, also made by Taylor. I was immediately disappointed to find out that the readings I got from it were approximately 3 pounds heavier than the readings on my older scale. In addition, the readings I received fluctuated by as much as 2 pounds within minutes of each reading.
I asked my wife to do a side-by-side comparison with the professional balance scale at the ER where she works as a nurse. She confirmed that this model also registered about 3 pounds heavier. I will be taking this one back for a refund.
I gave it 2 stars because it really does look nice, unfortunately the performance just doesn't measure up.

Very nice and easy to use. I only wish the numbers lit up so I could see them.Published 2 hours ago by Barbara Duncan
works well. Don't forget that you have to "wake it up" by stepping on it for a second, step off, then get back on for your true weight.Published 7 days ago by Jan J
Nice design but it only worked for 2 weeks. I was initially please with the scale but waited to write a review because of all the negative reviews. Read morePublished 9 days ago by sailorboston
