5.0 out of 5 stars Top Quality Bathroom Scales, 6 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Omron BF508 Body Composition and Body Fat Monitor Bathroom Scale (Personal Care)
Very happy with these scales (apart from the fact they tell me I'm overweight and too fat!!)
I got these to help monitor and motivate myself during a period of weight loss. They are doing just that, giving accurate and consistent readings for Weight, Bodyfat%, Viseral fat% and BMI. I then transfer them to a database program (Excel) and can produce graphs from there. (Sad I know but it helps me!)
The downside has been mentioned in previous reviews:- that there's no measurement in Stones and pounds but I knew that before I purchased and whilst its nice to know the Stones and pounds, Kgs make graphs easier (base 10 instead of base 14) and to be honest its about time I converted.
It would be nice to have the figures load direct to a computer (Wi Fi or otherwise) but its no great problem and for the money couldn't really be expected.
A great set of bathroom scales that function brilliantly, looks stylish and doesn't cost an arm and a leg (which I may end up chopping off to reach my target weight)

Chris Curtis has a great sense of humour and delivers information that is highly pertinent to others wondering about buying.

Make an extra column in the spreadsheet and have a formula to convert to stones and pounds :)

Hello

You can covert your BF508 to give you your weight in Lbs. If you refer to page 6 of your instruction manual it explains how to do this at the bottom of the page
