not accurate

published

Different reading every time I get on it what rubbish. Made in Germany you would expect better. How can they still sell this rubbish when they know it doesnt work

Easy to use. Smart appearance. Question some readings.

published

Weights are reasonably consistent day to day and with our other machine (different make). No complaints here. However fat, moisture and muscle % levels are always individually consistent but the total always exceeds 100% usually by 10-14%. Am I missing something here?

Purchased in for $200.

Unfit for purpose

published

Having had it for weeks now, cannot get the same reading twice. Useless and unfit for purpose. Have tried moving to different flooring; and now ensuring it is always in precisely the same place - no use either way.

Different reading continuously.

published

Do NOT waste your money nor your time with these! I make sure the surface is extremely flat, I get on & off in a row literally 10 times. EVERY SINGLE TIME THE READING IS DIFFERENT! Which is really difficult because j bought them to write down a daily weight. What a waste of money. Ridiculous

Working well after short ownership (Xmas pres.)

published

Easy enough to get from the box to weigh yourself. P1/personal date entry easy enough, book didn't really explain all that well how to bring up your data results re Body fat/Water% & Muscle % but worked it out soon enough.
Is giving consistent weight and body data results in repeated uses over short times.
If the scale continues to give consistent service then I would rate them at least 4 Stars. The scales are rated for up to 150KG use, have no idea what accuracy they give if you miss that specification & > 150kg.

worked part time

published

Gave different readings on stepping on and off - let you choose the lowest - then after six months it decided to retire! Even a new battery didn't bring it back to life.

Inaccurate

published

Just returned these for a refund. Totally inaccurate with 3 different readings after stepping on and off within 30 seconds varying between .8kg to 1.9kg - a huge issue if you are monitoring your weight. Gimmicky with the body fat and water analysis as this also didn't appear correct. There aren't many digital scales around which appear to work correctly unfortunately - would love to see the manufacturers lift their game.

Does not work

published

Terribly inconsistent results, although they do look good and are cheap the fact that they do not give consistent results makes them unusable. Weigh yourself twice minutes apart and quite often it will deliver results that are kilos apart. Definitely would not recommend purchasing these regardless of price.

Never worked

published

Didn't work. Tried new battery, nothing doing. Returned to Harvey Norman. Next one didn't work either. Rang Sanitas, referred back to Harvey Norman. it's not the purchase price, it's the running around, time and frustration involved. Both Sanitas and Harvey Norman must have known there was a problem with this product. Really, really unacceptable.

Look good but Not accurate

published

Find same problem the scales give different readings within a short period of time, just stepping on and off, but also within an hour they will not read the same. Really disappointed and will be taking them back to Harvey Norman.
hard to believe a manufacture in the medical and health field as big as Sanitas would risk soiling their name on cheap untrustworthy products. I did look up these guys prior to purchase and thought no way would they make something that would not work properly and put their name to it. some one in the company needs to rethink.

Inconsistent Results

published

These scales look very nice and for $50 one would think that they would work properly. If you weigh yourself 3 times in a row, you will get two numbers similar to each other and one that is 2kgs off, this happens consistently. If you a prepared to test the scales multiple times then go ahead. I strongly dislike the inconsistent results. Very disappointing.
looks nice
inconsistent results, no warranty
