Q & As

Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Waste of money I purchased these scales as I've had Tanita scales before and was happy with them but my daughter commandeered them for university so I bought these updated ones as a replacement. Stupidly I threw away the box and the receipt was inside it so I doubt I can have a refund or exchange, but this is to warn others of the problem. The buttons were not as touch sensitive as I would have liked and it took many attempts to set up the scales - sometimes they would be almost ready and the buttons and display would go mad and everything would be displayed many times over and no attempt to switch them off would work except to remove the batteries and start again. Another family member had a go and they seemed to work fine for several weeks so I assumed my set up problem was just that - MY problem! This is when the box was thrown...grrr. Two weeks ago we were woken around 4am with beeps from the scales and they were 'away with the fairies' and would not switch off until the batteries were removed. I wondered if the batteries were failing so I replaced them and all was well for a week. Then the same thing occurred at 4am again, I moved them to another room to see if they would recover. They continued all day and eventually a second set of batteries expired and all was quiet. A previous reviewer suggested that high humidity played a part but I don't believe this was the case in our bedroom (rarely gets steamy!). How I wish I'd read reviews before purchasing and not bought on impulse in the shop! Other online reviews of these scales (read far too late) state similar problems to mine and the UK Customer Service number is no longer available. 27 October 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Touch interface no good for steamy bathrooms These scales provide consistent measurement of a wide variety of health parameters but have one key weakness. The buttons of the interface are touch sensitive areas on the glass surface and they activate spontaneously when the operating environment becomes humid. When taking a shower in the same room, you hear the scales beeping to themselves. They also don't then respond to intended button presses correctly until the humidity level drops. For an item that is highly likely to be sited in a bathroom, this is a critical failure. 08 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really Useful Product Bought this middle of 2011 and have been using it regularly since. It is a real asset when you are watching your weight / health. It is very quick and easy to use. It does measure all the categories listed and I would recommend it to any health / weight conscious person. 10 April 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing It would not measure Viceral fat - which is why i bought it, so I sent it back. I tried several times and re- read the instructions.It was also very hard to read the reults when you are standing n the scales. It looks very nice and is stylish! 04 April 2012
