Altus, South Africa. 22 July 2016

I bought this scale some time ago. It is completely inconsistent in the readings with no way to calibrate the scale.

This is a dud and not recommended.

Aidan, South Africa. 1 December 2014

Excellent product a must have in your bathroom.

Jacques, South Africa. 16 January 2015

Very nice product at a great price, plus excellent service from Takealot, as usual!

max, South Africa. 27 November 2014

To me the scale is totally useless. Though following the instructions religiously I am getting results that are inconsistent and vary wildly.

Yvonne, South Africa. 7 August 2015

Very inaccurate. I stood on the scale and it gave me a weight. I stood off, I waited a minute or two and then stood on it again and it gave me a different reading 3kg down. I repeated this 3 times and my weight kept reading lower and lower every time. I then tried it in every room in the house, but still the same thing kept happening. I had my husband and my mother-in-law test it, following the manual, but still the same thing kept happening. Returned the item. As much as I want to loose weight, I want an accurate scale to tell me if I am or not.

Raman Rahjiv, South Africa. 16 March 2016

This is a nice product
I read that some people have had issues with it, even though following the instructions "Religiously"
1. The scale "must" be on a leveled surface. (not carpet, or wooden flooring)
2. You must set up your age, height etc before getting the results of body fat etc.
3. The metal piece on the scale will need a medium to send a charge through your body. what i usually do is add a drop of water on both metals and stand on it, so the current flows through the water to your feet and thus the reading becomes accurate.

i bought this product in 2014 and its now 2016, the only issue i had was changing batteries haha
and my whole family use the scale almost every 3rd day

Use the device properly and you will get good results

Juan, South Africa. 13 April 2016

Nice looking Scale. Gets dirty very fast though.
I don't Know what it is with this scale but it does not work for me. Even just the weight jumps all over the place. My wife used it and it was fine. But not for me.
Bought a better one and gave this one to my dad (in 2013) he still uses it with no problems (now 2016)

Cindy, South Africa. 4 May 2015

I returned mine after it drained the battery flat despite me only using it about 5 times. It also gave me varying results, the last straw being when it indicated that I had lost 10kg in one week. While I wish that was the case, my old mechanical scale confirmed that it was not so. I ended up doing what I was trying to avoid in the first place i.e. going all in and buying a connected scale.

Juan-Henning, South Africa. 29 March 2016

Not worth the money. Got the scale, got on it and it gave me an error (Nothing to do with my weight, I weigh a mere 84kg - haha). Contacted Takelot who replaced it for me within 2 days - wow! -

Now after about 6 months use, it starts with the same error again.

Quintin, South Africa. 8 September 2015

Its good, I have not problem it. I enjoy this :)

Jana, South Africa. 24 June 2015

Working well, thank you.

Sipho, South Africa. 28 October 2014

Love it.

Juandre, South Africa. 17 May 2016

Good Scale

Do not know if the other measurements (body fat, hydration, muscle mass, bone mass) is accurate.
Weighs fast and accurate.
Also very good looking.

Phumzile, South Africa. 13 June 2014

Thandeka, South Africa. 21 May 2015

Very stylish, neat and unobtrusive and it also works.

Taz, South Africa. 12 July 2016

Used this scale round about 20 times successfully. Thereafter it did not give accurate weights and weights were very different for the same person. Doesn't seem to be a long lasting product
