Woefully Inaccurate from a Top Notch Fitness Company
Tl;dr the scale only accurately measures your weight. The scale uses a calculation, not BIA as advertised and is woefully inaccurate both in absolute accuracy when measuring of fat/muscle/hydration % and relative accuracy. I would recommend a scanning pod instead (excellent for relative accuracy and if you have MPort nearby, the scale is the same cost as a 3 year subscription).
As a long time Garmin user who has had excellent experiences with the smart watch/fitness tracker products, I am disappointed to discover that this scale is misleading ...for metrics other than weight. I had a few issues setting the product up with wifi as many other users report. Once set up though, its connectivity to Garmin connect is fabulous and convenient. The unfortunate bottom line is this scale does not use BIA for calculating body fat, hydration, muscle mass or bone density as it alleges. This is no doubt the main draw card for prospective customers (including myself), but in my 7 month experience its evident that the scale is actually using a calculation based solely on your weight. I consistently noticed that the scale would immediately assume any weight gain (as small as 0.2kg/~0.5 pound) was due to higher body fat (which was already reporting 5-10% higher than my body pod fat %). On multiple occasions my bone mass has even changed (unless I have a severe medical condition Im unaware of, this shouldnt happen).
