To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this because reviewers liked it, especially for the price. And it is a great buy. I replaced my old scale because five measurements done at the same time would give me five different results, often varying by up to 1.5 pounds. The EatSmart is extremely consistent. It's a great scale at a good price.
I've had the scale for 6 weeks at the time of this review.
Unlike some others in the reviews, I haven't had an issue with accuracy once I had it on a flat, stable surface. I keep it in my closet - I don't even have to turn on the light to weigh myself because of the nicely backlit display with large numbers.
This scale weights me far closer to the Dr's office scale - my old mechanical scale was low by 5 pounds all the time. So I'm quite satisfied with the accuracy at this point. I did research on bathroom scales before purchasing this one based on it's favorable reviews and price point and I haven't had any reason to regret the purchase.
I was very disappointed with this scale. From the box, it was FAULTY. I read the instructions and followed the procedure to operate the scale; I placed the batteries in the scale correctly, pressed down on it, and nothing happened. The LED screen remained blank until I pressed the mem (memory) button which caused the LED to turn on. The scale proceeded to fluctuate all over the place. At times It displayed close to the limit of 440lbs even when nothing was placed on the scale. Clearly, I received a broken or faulty product.
I then had to spend time completing the return process, wasting at least an hour of my time. The only good thing about this experience was the speed of delivery and the access to information regarding the return of the scale. Unfortunately, I already sent back the package. Otherwise, I would have included pictures of the faulty operation of the scale. I guess I am very unlucky considering how many positive reviews this product has received.
Overall this is great! Easy to use, good quality and lightweight. Would have got 5 stars on accuracy but we have to step on it twice before it gives the correct weight. As for price, similar product was $10 more at our local store.
The scale shows accuracy to 1/10th of a pound. However, upon stepping on the scale, we find that weights displayed are variable within a 2lbs range. This is passable, but not as accurate as advertised.
Very easy to read, the only downside is that your first weight reading is usually 5lbs more than your actual weight. I weigh myself 4 times, the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th reading are exactly the same, the 1st one is just off. All the extra bonuses like BMI, calories, ect are a great addition . The scale looks sleek also.
This was the top-rated scale in a NY Times Review in 2017. Delivery was fast -- it showed up on a Sunday afternoon via courier. Product works perfectly. I weighed myself four times, allowing it to shut off between weighs, and moving it to a different floor for the fourth test. All were accurate and identical results.
It didn't work out of the box. Numbers jumped around, then said error. Instructions also said it only works on a non carpeted floor. This would have been a problem for me even if it wasn't broken. On the upside, return was easy and fast.
The product looks good, but when it comes to accuracy, my weigh-in as been very inconsistent. I've done the calibration and made sure it was on a hard surface. I've followed the instructions properly but not once has it given my proper weight.
Works as expected. I would have given this a better rating if it had a more capabilities, but I knew this before ordering the product. I just can't see myself paying more than what I payed for this one.
