not consistent for weight,
This review is from: Tanita UM076 Body Fat Monitor Scale (Personal Care)
You know what you are getting with a home fat monitor: a way to see trends, rather than deadly accurate figures. I check my weight at the same moment each day. I have owned this one for 4 months now.
The fat monitoring part is OK. I can weigh myself 3 times in a couple of minutes and the reading is consistent.
For the weight however, this scale is atrocious. It is so sensitive to whether you stand towards the front or back of the scale (or just lean), that consistent readings are just about impossible. I would not recommend this scale for this reason.
You get what you pay for and this is a cheap model.
I will be buying a different Tanita model to replace this one as I have another older Tanita scale and the fat monitoring is also good, consistent and close to the actual value.
