Weight readings totally wrong
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!!
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
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?
Total waste of money
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!
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?
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.
Questions & Answers
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?
