The scale is easy to use, the numbers are large, but the descriptions are tiny. You get your weight, body fat, water, muscle, and bone percentages, with the last four adding to approximately 100%. The words (not the numbers) are so small that they can't be read while standing on the scale, and won't display if not standing on the scale. So you just have to memorize the order of display for the five readouts. Other than that, the scale is attractive and very useful for me to lower my fat content (currently at 23%). The enclosed booklet has charts for age and sex to say what the percentages should be. Each user has his/her own selectable memory bank (I'm user P1 on my scale).

Keep getting Err2 reading. The booklet says to make sure feet are clean and scale is free of debris. Still not able to get anything other than weight reading. Disappointing.
Have not been able to get it to work. Did not return as I had tossed the packaging. Who would think that a scale would be a problem?
Stopped working after almost 5 months. I changed the battery but didnt help.
This product is not accurate at all when it comes to water weight/ fat percentrage etc. To me this was a huge letdown because I really wanted to see if I was holding water or calculate my actual BMI with muscle and fat calculated. Compared to other scales however when it comes to accurate overall weight measurement it is okay. I also have a weight watchers scale purchased from Costco that generally reads me about a pound heavier.
This scale is exactly what I have been looking for. It functions perfectly and looks great on the bathroom tile with the see-through glass base. If there is any downfall to this scale, it is that it cycles through the "health" information rather quickly, but it does display it twice and is certainly not a show-stopper. I would highly recommend this scale. Love it.
After first use, noticed glass coming away from the plastic parts. Then it started coming completely off. Shoddy manufacturing and they didn't use enough adhesive. I added some 3M double sticky tape of my own so it stops falling apart and is usable, but I it's now giving errors for body fat and other calculations and can only be used for weight, which my old scale could do. Avoid.
Not sure about the accuracy of this scale. It is consistently 3 - 4 pounds off from every other scale I have access to (doctor's office, gym scale, other scale I have at home). The paperwork that comes with it says it isn't necessarily accurate, but can be used for detecting changes in your weight, body fat, etc. Fair enough. It looks good, too.
I bought the item thinking that it was a true bioelectrical impedance scale. What I found was that the readings (BMI, Water, Calories, etc) are pre-set to the weight reflected on the scale. I cannot determine whether I am gaining or loosing muscle or fat like I can determine when I weigh myself on my nutritionist's bio-impedance scale.
For anything beyond weight, this scale is useless. Whatever microscopic computer this thing uses can't even recognize when the touch-buttons are touched, so you can't actually get your body fat reading or anything else. The only reason you can get your weight is because that's the default. I see now why it cost so little.
