Waste of money and time.
This scale doesn't pair with the app so it just can be used as a conventional scale. This product is not worth the money and definetly wasted my time not just purchasing it but also trying to set it up.

Disastrously hopeless. Clearly flawed, unsophisticated equipment and dodgy algorithms. Only 2 metabolic ages, 41 and 56.
Body fat analyser is way out. Claims I have 20kg of fat and I'm active with weights, martial arts, running marathons, male of 185cm height and total weight 78kg. Where am I hiding 20kg of fat?

Useless software which doesn’t work
Scales are supposed to use an App called Dr Weight on your phone with Bluetooth to write body analysis data to your Apple Health Kit on iPhone.
The app is broken and you cannot setup an account by any method. Or get any help with it. If you click help/developer website you get a webpage with a few Chinese code characters which translate as “unauthorised access”.
Which makes the scales an overpriced digital readout scales.
Will sadly be returning scales for a refund.

TLDNR- Scales are nice, but the software they depend on is not reliable.

I bought this Aldi special on its day of release on 26 Jan 2019. It was a replacement for a Bluetooth connected scale (Blue Anatomy) which had always had problems and now the supplier seems to have folded.
My requirement was a smartphone connected scale to enable easy recording and tracking of body weight as an incentive for weight reduction. Accuracy, repeatability and ease of use were my main requirements.
You need to download an app from either Google or Apple to enable the scale to record and analyse. If used as a straight scale it onl...y displays the weight directly on its own screen and it is not recorded. The connection to the smartphone is excellent - it's not via Bluetooth which is often flaky to use and setup. This device uses WiFi direct which connects automatically and instantly every time you step on the scale and the phone is nearby with the app running. There is no obvious automatic calibration either which is a bit of a worry. Most electronic scales need to be started up via a tap and then they set their zero level before you can step on and weigh yourself. With these scales you step straight on and wait for about 4 secs during which the weight is settled and the electrical measuring current is sent through your bare feet, the various body analysis parameters are calculated and then sent to the smartphone. Readout of the analysis parameters is only via the smartphone. Only weight is displayed directly on the scales own screen. I compared the weight with that measured by my older WeightWatchers scales over a week. The Aldi consistently indicated about 0.7 kg higher and the variability between the 2 readings was between 0.6 to 0.8 kg. I considered this to be very good for a sub $50 scale. Note that I could not discern which was the more accurate without using special calibrated test weights so this was strictly a comparison. There are 16 other parameters it purports to measure and record including BMI, % fat etc etc. I'm not sure how accurate these readings are and there's no way for me to test them. However they can all be referenced in a database kept in your phone and all are trendable. The app is quite good although it doesn't allow you to exo[prt any of the data for say other analysis or graphing functions. I rate this scale as very good value for money. very easy to use and seemingly accurate in the weight measurements. I've only had it for 1 week so reliability has not been assessed yet.
Questions & Answers
Is it possible to use the scale with a different app? I'm not sure that Dr. Weight one is worth the trouble.
How do I change from Visitor mode to me, the user.?Being on Visitor means I cant get details about any of the comments. Thanks
