Been using this for a week. I'm happy with it so far, weight results are consistent. App tracking that syncs with fitbit is really convenient. Seems to be in this price pretty often.

Great price for this scale. I picked one up at the beginning of the year and it works well. Always syncs consistently with my phone and app works with Apple Health. Not really sure how accurate/valid all the BMI analysis stuff is but it does recognize when you are not barefooted. I didn't buy it for that...I just wanted and an easy way to track my weight on my phone.

Perfect!! Was looking for one as my fitbit aria broke.. And don't forget aeroplane store as there is 5x (i think) for amazon today

I can confirm that I didn't see $18 coupon last night as I was trying to purchase one, but saw aeroplan would have 5x amazon today, so I waited for a day

Nice find op. I have owned this scale in colour black for a few months. It's really nice. You need to have the phone app open while sending results to the device. It nicely sync to Google fit.

I know it won't be accurate, but how do scales even claim to measure bf and stuff just by stepping on?

They send a electrical pulse through the metal pads along your feet to measure the resistance. Its not really accurate because the measurement only happens between the 2 points(So it would just be measuring the point between your 2 feet... Your legs and lower torso) AND the actual resistance can be changed beyond just fat content in your body... So being especially well hydrated(or dehydrated) would also mess the numbers up. Its probably good enough for non-medial stuff though.

If you're serious about finding your body fat percent, medical callipers are probably a bit more accurate. Though thats still not really accurate enough to make any medical decisions off.

Thanks OP, needed a scale, not sure if I'll use all the functions, but will it be able to tell me that I've lost weight by spending money? (lighter wallet, ahaha?)

I've used this one for years. To me, it doesn't matter how accurate it is compared to other methods, as it is just a number. What's more important is the trend. When you're dropping weight you can track the body fat percentage decreasing. It has been consistent in that way and I feel like at this price it is a fantastic purchase.

I have tried the renphon before, the body fat metric is just a pre-calculated formula, tested out for a few days and returned it. I haven’t bought enough a scale since but for this price, why not so bought one just for the basics. Thanks OP

I've had this scale for awhile. Frankly I don't think the body fact reading is accurate (wish it was because I'm fatter than the readings. lol)

It looks nice but the main benefit of this scale is the bluetooth and mobile app it syncs with. It allows you to keeps a record of your progress. For this money, it's well worth the price. You'll pay 20 bucks for just a plain jane scale.

The BF% on these things are nowhere close to being accurate.

Have this in black for 6 months. Works far better than the previous iHealth one we had, and the stupid Fitbit Aria one that seemed to lock in all data to the Fitbit app because "we're fitbit, bitch, we don't share data" (paraphrasing, but that's basically what their support told me).

For those saying the body fat is off... there's a setting in the app for if you are an "athlete" or not. Mine has a delta of about 10% between those settings. I would try that.

Great scale for the price.
