Some quirks I've figured out about this scale:
You must connect the scale to your iPhone (via Bluetooth) BEFORE you use it to weigh yourself the first time. This sets the scale's internal clock and calendar. If you do not, then any weights that are recorded before the initial link will not be stored.
If you change the batteries, you again must connect the scale via bluetooth, or any weights recorded after the battery change are lost. When you take out the batteries, the internal clock/calendar loses its place.
The scale works great on NiMH rechargeable batteries (4 AAA).
The batteries supplied with the scale, alkalines, only lasted a week. The scale then displayed LO, and wouldn't record any more weights.
The downloading process is a bit clunky. Turn on the scale, go to iPhone prefs, go to general, then bluetooth, then find the scale and hit connect. Then run the app. You then see a list of the weights stored in the scale, and you're asked if you want to download them. Don't forget to hit save!
Despite the quirks I'm giving it 5 stars. I love the ability to simply use the scale for weeks on end (just step on it!) and it does the job of holding onto the weight information, along with date and time. You can just download when you feel like it. This feature alone gives it the 5 stars, for me.
Item is of good contstruction. Glass plate and mostly metal body. Males the unit durable and easy to clean.
Scale remembers past weight. Will ask you if you want to transfer to iPhone app.
Can use the scale without pairing then you can upload past weights
Instructions on how to clear scale memory
Easy to pair to iPhone just step on the scale for a second - wait for 00 to appear while in iPhone settings pair device. To to open app and press start and step on scale. Even though I find it easy, others may prefer a longer time period to pair device since you need to do this quickly. However you can upload weights later
iPhone app could use a little work
While you can normally wait patiently for apps to improve over time, there is no good reason I can think of to purchase this expensive of a scale which does next to nothing, and certainly not all the functions advertised without a lot of extra hassle and fuss. Do you really want to have your iPhone in a bathroom - which has a lot of water which is no good for phones - every time you weigh in? I guess the solution is to keep the scale in the bedroom or elsewhere, but what looks like a really cool concept fails *miserably* in the execution.
In reality the scale functions as any digital scale would. It does look pretty sleek. Initial setup was not difficult, I just paired it with my phone. This is where the product sucks. Apparently every time I want to "easily" record my weight I have to manually go into my settings and pair my phone with the scale again. At first I thought, "there is no way this product is that poorly thought out". However after pouring over directions and poor reviews I see I am not alone in my disappointment.
The process of manually pairing your phone every time you want the scale to record your weight is more onerous than just manually typing your weight in. So I guess my friends were right, I should just manually enter my weight to track it, because this scale does not do so effectively.
