Better than I expected!

Pros: reliable weight (always +/-1lb of the dr.'s), affordable
Cons: cheap plastic on the side breaks off
"I'd seen this at costco before but questioned how good a bf scale this afforable could be. I ended up getting it as a gift last Christmas and have been seriously impressed.
It's nice that you can have 4 different profiles so everyone in the house can use the scale without having to enter their info every time. The weights are very consistent when weighing yourself multiple times in a row (mine has never varied more than .1lb). The hydration level is great for being able to tell if those 3lbs miraculously gained since yesterday are largely water weight.
I've had the scale for almost 9 months now and my only complaint is that the shiny silver plastic on the side (which does nothing but look nice by the way) broke off. It's probably because we keep it on the floor and accidentally kick it pretty often. The scale still works totally fine though, It just looks a bit funny now.

Very good purchase

Pros: repeatable accurate readings
Cons: turns itself off too soon
Model Number: Health O Meter Body Fat Scale
"Most of the digital scales I have purchased in the past did not give consistent readings. This model is an exception. It gives very repeatable readings when I weigh myself few times in a row and it is very accurate."

Fairly easy to use, no errors

"I've been using this scale for a little over a month and haven't experienced any error messages or problems. I feel like the display is a little hard to decipher at first, but all in all I'm happy with my purchase."

"A reliable scale (never has 'error' reads like many digital scales). Love that it tracks your goal weight and daily tells you how close you're getting. Overall a good value."

Don't Waste Your Money

Model Number: bfm79dq-80a312bn
"We purchased this scale so our entire family could track their weight. Unfortuantely the scale has frequent error messages. When not getting an error message it is inaccurate. If you step on the scale three times, you will get three different weights varying by several pounds, ie. 144 to 163. Will NOT weight someone over 350. You'll get better results having someone guess your weight at the carnival!"

Bone Mass is different than most!

Pros: fast, easy
Cons: costs more online
Model Number: BFM790
"I got this scale and have been very pleased. I have always been frustrated around I'm short and regular BMI says I should weigh 108-130 but I have thick bones. I found this scale easy to set and use. It helps me keep track of how hydrated I am. I also found that I have 5.1 lbs of bone mass. An average framed person of similar height had 3.4 lbs! I felt so much better ... I haven't found a BMI with frame allowances but I feel better. It's fast and easy!"
