Really? You need damp feet??? Why isn't that in the DIRECTIONS???
Followed directions. Didn't work. Returned for new one. Same thing. Followed directions, no body fat analysis. Googled the scale to this site where thanks to those that said you need damp feet and it will work. Come on, in this age of technology, there is no reason to omit that important detail from the printed direction booklet that comes with the scale!!!
Purchased in at ALDI for $14.99.
It works! Read this for tip!
So I was getting the Error message like everyone else. Until a read another review here. I did what that reviewer recommended and voila, it worked!
Do not give this product a bad review because you didn't read a little further down. Your feet have to be slightly wet in order for the scale to work properly. I used baby wipes on my feet before I stepped onto the scale and it read my body fat, muscle mass, etc, like it was suppose to. For $14.99, you can't find a better product for your money. I'm giving it four stars for the fact that you even have to go that far in order for it to work properly but at least it works!

Body mass error
Body mass indicator is not working, I get an 'errh' error. Not sure what that is since the manual doesn't even mention this. Looks like this unit has a history of problems. Guess I will be returning it.
I call it...the 4 step scale
4 step because I have to step on it at least 4 times for it to figure out how much I weigh. Each time I step on it, the scale gives a different reading. This morning, for example, I got on it 4 times and got 2 different weight readings. I knew the 1st two readings were incorrect by about 3 lbs., so I stepped on it again.....got a reading that SEEMED to make more sense....so I stepped on it again and got the same seemingly more accurate reading. So, I am sort of confident I got my current weight figured out.
Aldi got the appearance part c...orrect, the scale looks great with its black color and rewardingly slim profile. The accuracy as a bathroom scale, however......not so much. This is a scale that exercises your intuition, patience, and tolerance for mechanical/digital mischievousness or pranks on you. I have a Conair slim scale that is always dead on accurate and chooses not to test your insight with random numbers, but it is slightly larger in thickness. I have been using my Aldi 4-step-scale instead as a slight space saver. I am about at my limit for this Aldi scale's behavior, however, and will be dragging out my old reliable Conair.

A bit better for me
I had a pretty good experience with my scales as l had them working well for 15 months until the batteries died and when l replaced they never started again. What do you want for $19.00 although the supplier replaced mine no questions asked so that deserves a star!
Cannot be re calibrated after batterychange
Just out of warranty and batteries needed changing.., yep, did that. Got a number display of 2402? Rang the hotline and got an abrupt female saying 'What's your problem?' She then said it's a non repairable error message. Won't fall for that again Aldi!!! Not at all happy.
Another problem with Visage scales
I have had the scales that I bought from ALDI for around 18 months. The error message came up which meant that the batteries had run out. Replaced the batteries and from then on the scales cannot be calibrated. Thanks ALDI. more disposable goods thrown in the rubbish. What a waste.
Questions & Answers
Why is this product being discontinued?
My Body Analyzing Scale never worked properly. I was excited to try it out, but it did not record correct data. I read reviews after my frustration and ended up returning to the store. Very few positive experiences.
The dial is very dim and it appears the battery needs changing. What size and how do I do it?
It appears the battery need changing as the dial is very dim..How do I do it? LAUREN
