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.
Brilliant technology. Delighted with extensive information BUT I know to have slightly damp feet to
This is my most recent purchase of a number of such devices.
I have even tried the mPort booth a 2 different shopping centres.- they give you an Avatar in 3D to encourage good habits. I saw a big difference after many months.
I love feedback, wear a Fitbit and although not competitive do love information.
The Aldi scales are new to Eastern suburbs of Melbourne & cost $40.
Having used many earlier, less sophisticated models, I briefly checked instructions, dampened my feet, placed my new iphone x in sight with the app functioning, and, in seconds, all the info was on my phone screen.
So much info...... I am still processing it- 20 different areas were specified with analysis.
Way faster and more user friendly than Fitbit Aria.
I have had this scale for more than two years. I have changed out the battery once. The scale works perfect every time. I weigh when I just get out of the shower, with my feet a LITTLE DAMP, not dripping wet and it works perfectly every time...
ERRH error message
This review is for the Visage model 95908 Body Fat Scale.
I purchased this scale on 3/20/18 at the local Aldi store even after reading all of the bad reviews about the ERRH error message, partially because I have purchased many products from Aldi in the past and all of the products have been excellent quality. The other reason that I purchased it even with all of the bad reviews is because I suspected that the people using the scale were doing something wrong.
Well on my first attempt to use the scale I got the same ERRH message. I followed ...
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.
Kaput after 6 years , also after changing battery
Have the 4529 glass scale , perfect for 6 years however after changing batteries will only display 00 or 89.9 Kg
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
