Inaccurate and inconsistent
Looks ok but garbage quality. Stepped on it three times in 3 minutes and got a different reading each time. Placed a 10kg weight on it and got readings from 10.9 to 11.4 kg. I estimate in my weight it is out by 5-10% +\-

Worst product do not buy
Hopeless bluetooth functionality which never lets you port the data back to the app and then the scales tells you it's data storage is full.. because it never transfers it's data to your phone. HOPELESS. Don't buy. They should sack their whole IT department.

This is the worst scale ever made!
My boyfriend just tossed it in the trash. Each time we weigh ourselves it gives a different weight. The user instructions are bewildering. A useless, misleading, and VERY frustrating commodity that shows just how stupid digital products can be. An old fashioned dial scale is way better.

I have a Beurer scale that needed new rubber feet. Got in touch with their Australian distributor and they informed me they can’t get spare parts for it. Sent an email to Beurer and they didn’t bother answering....
This scale came calibrated 10 lbs over. I called the company to return the scale and they expect me to pay the return shipping for their broken scale. Garbage! Be warned! Fortunately, Bed Bath & Beyond will take the scale back!
Batteries discharge in days. Junk scale. I'm throwing in the garbage and getting a new one. I changed batteries to new ones and they discharged. I don't have a receipt and don't want to waste my time returning.
Worst scale ever!!!
This is the worst scale ever! You step on it once, it says one weight, and you step on it a second time and the weight jumps up 5 pounds! You step on it a third time and the weight changes again. Unbelievable! Do not buy!!!!

Obtained this to replace old spring type scales. Looks very nice but is hopelessly inaccurate. Varies a couple of kilo's each time you get on it.
I wish I had kept the old one.
Edit. Has to be on a perfectly level surface. No calibration adjustment built in.
I bought one today it gives different results even when carefully following the use instructions.
Surprised to see a German brand to be too awful. I don't advise purchasing this product
I bought the scale as I wanted a good brand and a scale that would last. The scale readings are terrible. I don't have receipt or box but I would take this scale back don't buy save yourself the money. I've tried this scale everywhere I think it's broke its just sat in my bathroom never to be used. I can't believe this product cost so much to not even work daylight robbery.
I love the scales themselves. We were using them just for weight. Hop on, see weight, hop off.
I loved the big, easy to read digital display. I loved the fact it turned itself off within seconds.
We followed every instruction. No young kids here who could knock it or move it. It just sits in a corner of the bathroom, flat tile floor etc
I am unhappy because about a fortnight ago, it started to show Lo when I tried to use the scale. No problem, that should just mean new batteries. Took out the old batteries and my husband went to a sho...Read morep to show them (so we could get the same batteries), & he bought 2 replacement batteries. Those batteries lasted exactly 4 days and then went dead as a dodo. I put that down to maybe the shop not having a high turnover of batteries. Maybe we had just got old ones.
3 Different Readings in 5 Minutes
I purchased the Beurer BG51XXL Diagnostic Scales for $129.00 Plus Delivery from Harvey Norman. I thought for this price, I will be getting nothing but the best. I was wrong. Ever since my first reading, I thought there was something not right with this unit so I ran a few tests. I weighed myself 3 times within 5 minutes and managed to get 3 different readings. The first was 86kg, the next, 89kg and the next was 87kg. A 3kg variation is a huge one. I tested the unit in the same position using the same settings each and every time yet I would keep getting different results. Useless!!
Good function. poor display
Great functionality but display turns off too quickly. Display is hard to read standing upright, no backlight so have to get off, get down to read the display, and try to decipher six function results in about 3 seconds.
Not good in this regard.
Battery life has been reasonable do far.
good and appropriate functiond
display too dark and turns off too quickly
I'm very disappointed with this scale!! I only have it for 2 months and it's not working! I'm hoping is the battery, but anyway is too soon for the battery to die! Besides that, no matter where I put it I get different weight every time I step on it. AWFUL!! Such a waste of money!!
the unit itself is o.k,looks good and is resonalby accurate but to turn it on its more of a good kick than a tap..this is where the main problem is...you have got to be very careful that it turns itself off otherwise it goes through batteries like you would not beleive.sometimes it turns itself on meaning battery life poor
batteries always flat....makes it unreliable
Questions & Answers
Why does weight go crazy some times? We have a BG 17 and, in the past, it has worked great. My wife and I only use it for weight. Last week my wife said it showed her gaining five pounds in one day. This week I jumped ten pounds between readings. Two days to be exact.
We bought the Beurer B26 from Target (summer 2017). Seemed accurate until this past week (9-21-17), when it flashes multiple numbers not even resembling weights. We changed out the batteries but it did the same thing. We went back to target but they said we had to contact Beurer. Unfortunately we do not have the receipt or the box it came in. We felt we wouldn't have a problem and were sadly mistaken. We are extremely disappointed in this product. Is there anything that can be done to replace the faulty scale we own?
When our Beurer scales went faulty, we tried following it up too and got nowhere. I emailed the company and got the response they wanted the receipts etc and for us to send/post the scales in with the...Read morem. We did not have the receipt either. I went out and bought digital weight watchers scales from Big W for $20 instead and they haven't missed a beat since.
