Waste of money

published

These scales have a mind of their own. I knew I lost weight, it remembered the same weight . I decided to buy the seca analog scales Which doctors surgery use

Purchased at Myer.

Rubbish

give different reading I put 7lb on in 40 seconds you pay money for scales and expect them to work trying to lose weight is hard enough sort it out

Purchased in September 2019 for A$25.00.

This WW185A Scale is crap and only lasts for one set of batteries

published

This WW185A Scale is crap and only lasts for one set of batteries It also insists on remembering & repeating the last reading unless one grips the bathroom towel rail to make it weigh much less, so the next reading is 'new'

Repeats same weight

published

The scales just keep repeating the same weight when I know there wrong, Changed the batteries. Im going to throw them out, really disapointed because I thought being WW thry would be the best

Weight readings totally wrong

published

I haven’t managed to get these scales to work since I purchased them. Straight away there was a error message which I managed to clear after resetting the scales (taking battery out) 3 times. Once scales were reset, the weight was completed inaccurate displaying my weight at 23st when I am around the 10.5 stone mark!!!

Absolutely terrible product!!

Shattered glass

published

Scale disintegrated into a thousand pieces. This being caused by accidental knock to one corner when moving in the bathroom.
Expensive and dangerous.
When working did not perform accurately.
Bought Wellcare for 9 dollars from Harvey Norman, simple and accurate.

Weight Watcher scale scam

published

This scale either gives error messages or gives conflicting read outs within minutes-it-I supposedly gained 3 pounds its over night-not to be trusted or bought. Don't buy it ever!!

Fair

published

Not as good as expected, one rubber stand fell off in the first week, had to go back to exchange to another. It requires a bit of setting up in order to get the fat% info, which is fair enough. But afterwards, I found out that the figure is not reliable. I wish I had known before I purchased. It's not mentioned on the package.

Just won't work properly

published

Bought the WW710A model, paid more for a 'reputable brand'. My mistake, I should have read the reviews first. I have owned a body analysis scale in the past (not WW) and it worked perfectly for 10+ years until the digital display gave out.

This piece of junk, what a pain to try and set up! Finally got it to register one person's details, briefly, before they disappeared and it went back to weight only before turning off. Never could program other people in. Gave up in disgust and will be returning for a refund.

Went into Target and got their brand name scale (for half what I paid for WW). Looks great, programmed 4 family members in easily within 10 minutes and works as it should. What is so hard about that WW?

Inaccurate readings everytime

published

These worked briefly but then suddenly gave two of us different readings each time I stepped on. It is not good enough when you spend money on a reputable brand supported by a reputable company. WW.

Crap

published

These scales are crap - both my sister and I have these scales and we both think it was a waste is money, for the price you pay and also how big weight watchers is I would have thought they have a good product but no. Would not recommend.

Total waste of money

published

Never before have I ever used a bathroom scale that gives people a different reading every time used. I mean climb on, get the weight, minutes later do same and different weight between 1 to 4 Kgs. Others I know who have the same unit have same issues. Would've taken it back for refund hadn't the receipt been lost. Ok Weight Watchers, you signed off pushing this Chinese manufactured crap, time to suck it up and order a product recall.

Not happy, Jan!

published

I am VERY displeased with these scales as I checked them against the Pharmacy scales & by weighing myself then picking up something large & weighing myself again & the scales stayed the same. I now can't find my instruction booklet & the scales are completely useless. Where can I get another copy of the instructions (which by the way I did try to follow when I first set the scales up & even WITH the instructions they didn't seem to work. Any suggestions? Any help?

OK. for 6 months

published

These were fine for just measuring my weight. But then they just went haywire after about six months. I am not happy with the cost for such a poor product. My next set will be very simple and very cheap, after all it is only a scale.

Taking it back

published

Same as all the other reviews ... different weight every time I get on at 10 minute intervals!!! A simple accurate scale would be great the rest I don't need. Won't start with a tap!!!!

Useless

published

This scale has a very clever "memory" feature.
So - unless you reset the scale by getting on with something heavy, and then actually weighing yourself only, you do not get an accurate result.
I thought I was doing OK - my weight wasn't changing. There had been a gradual creep over a period of time and because it is so very clever to remember you, it didn't register the change. My weight had really changed over 1.5 kg over that period.
I thought I had faulty scales - so even bought another WW model - but they all do the same thing.

Not worth buying

published

I can weigh myself with this scale and 10 minutes later, without eating or drinking anything, get a difference of plus or minus 1.8 lbs. I will absolutely be returning this.

It's alright

published

Seems to have bad reviews, but it generally gives me the correct weight and it's been similar when I've checked on other scales. I'd have to weight myself on like 5 different scales within 5 minutes to determine how accurate it actually is, I guess

Tom Pasked

I have Weight Watchers body scales Model WW8961K which I have not used for many months and need a reminder regarding it's use. It is probably 10 years old and any instructions I may have had are nowhere to be found. The battery , however, appears to be OK. The unit is undamaged. Any ideas?
