Functionally, there are a few problems. First, connecting the scale can be a challenge. The process includes broadcasting the ID of the scale, connecting to this "wifi network" on the phone, and then switching the network of the phone back to your personal wifi network. It took me several tries but eventually it worked and has worked flawlessly since. Unfortunately I've forgotten the exact problem I experienced but I do recall having to switch networks while my phone displayed a webpage that was reading "connecting". Anyway - see this page: [...] if you run into trouble. In contrast to this setup process, all other scale settings (users and their profiles) are very easy to setup once the scale is working correctly with the network. Additionally, I haven't had any issues with connectivity once the scale was setup correctly the first time.
Secondly, the scale must be used on a hard surface. In our bathroom, a rug sometimes slips slightly under the edge of scale and can really throw off the reading. If this happens, my reading can be confused with my wife's and the scale can start to get confused. Fortunately, all the readings are stored online and the erroneous readings can be easily removed on the website. If the scale is free from the rug, it never confuses my wife and my readings.Read more ›

This Review has 3 parts: 1) Scale performance versus other brands for Body fat Analysis 2) Connecting to the network and 3) Overall performance.
BODY FAT ANALYSIS:
Some of the reviews say how the scale is inaccurate and don't say the name of the scale that is better. Here goes for you that are interested in the truth about this scale.
Weight Watchers Scale with Body Fat Analysis
Tanita Scale with Body Fat Analysis
I weighed myself at the same time everyday for a week.
I weighed myself 3 times on each scale each day (WW, Tanita and Fitbit Aria)
I mixed the order of weigh ins
I averaged the 3 times over the week
WW BF =18.275%
Tanita BF = 18.125
Fitbit Aria BF = 18.275
This appears to me that they are about the same. However, I did try and mess up the scales like leaning forward or to the right or left. All three failed if I was not balanced, but the fitbit was more sensitive to balance than the others.
*** IF YOU ARE IN TRAINING: Last year I decided to train and lose the weight through preparation for a race that I did not run, but trained with people that did. I started to lose weight and body fat based on the body fat caliper testing. However, ALL electronic scales showed an INCREASE then slight decline in body fat as I increased my exercise to 5 days a week.Read more ›
One thing to note: setup was very easy, but you do need to use a WIFI connection to do the setup (i.e. if you try to do the setup over a Ethernet wired computer that does not also support WIFI, the setup won't work). I brought a laptop that was running over WIFI into my bathroom to do the setup and that worked great. I already had an account on Fitbit.com so that made setup even easier. Setup only took a minute or two - you just need to know your password for your network since you will enter it during the setup procedure. My network uses mixed mode 802.11 b/g/n and WPA2 encryption, and the scale connected no problem.
The thing I really like about the scale is that you can earn weight badges for every 5 pounds lost, so that is motivating to see on the Fitbit site and in your email inbox. These show up under your accomplishments section on the site, in the same place that your steps and flights badges are if you have a Fitbit step tracker too.
As far as accuracy is concerned - I do see a very slight fluctuation in the weight and BF% numbers when I take repeated measurements. I have found that when I stand in a certain way, I can get consistent readings though. Otherwise the weight may fluctuate by .2 pounds or so, and the BF% by .2% or so.Read more ›
