I really wanted to like the Weight Gurus Digital Body Fat Scale. If it worked the way it should have, it would have been a great addition to my home. We love our high tech devices, but this one missed the mark. It's possible that my scale was just a lemon, but every single time I stepped on it the weight was different, and not by just a pound. Even if I step on to weight myself, step off, then weight myself again the measurements can be up to 8 pounds off. The BMI calculator was also way off compared to my other scale and BMI charts. Measurements take forever to pop up on the screen, and you if you plan on using the feature where you can scan the barcode into the Weight Gurus app on your phone so it keeps track of everything for you then you have to be very quick because the barcode does't show up for very long on the screen. You are able to have multiple accounts on this scale, and it is supposed to automatically be able to tell who is standing on it, but I find that if the people who are using the scale are of similar size that it has a hard time telling who is who. I have read a lot of good reviews, so I am convinced that mine was just a lemon.
What I liked about the scale:
- The ability to track measurements on your phone quickly and easily.
- Bright screen is easy to read.
- Sleek modern design, would look good in any home
- You are able to focus on weight loss by choosing an option that only shows change in weight instead of your actual weight.
- 100% customer guarantee and comes with a 5 year warranty.
- The ability to change from pounds to kilograms
What I would change:
- Faster measurement time, takes too long to display measurements.
- A quick use feature, that would just display your weight instead of having to wait for it to calculate everything before showing you any numbers.
- More accurate measurements.
I am impressed with the idea of this scale, but the execution, at least on my scale, left something to be desired. I really wanted to love this scale, but it left me just saying "meh". This scale can be purchased on amazon clicking any of the links above for $24.99.
