Absolutely live this product..! Integration with the FitBit app is key, and has made it so much easier to tuse all my progress towards target BMI I’m trying to hit. Also works great for multiple users, so my partner and I both can track weight, % bodyfat, BMI etc with our own personal choice of metric/kg or imperial/stones and pounds measurements - it just knows automatically which one of us is using the scales each time.
I don't believe the fat content reading when it fluctuates...I can lose 5lbs after a weekend and my bodyfat percentage increases.i don't exercise on a weekend.. this must be water...unless I removed a limb. It synchs well and can distinguish multi users.
Got this when it was on offer but this is the epitome of how a smart product should be. Having already got a Fitbit Charge HR 2, I was a keen fitbit user. So setting this product up was as simple as typing in my wifi password on my phone, and a 4 digit security code. That is it. I now weigh myself every morning and in about 5-10 seconds I get my weight, Bodyfat % and BMI with trend graphs automatically building. Both my wife and I use it and it automatically knows who is standing on it and syncs our weights to our separate Fitbit accounts automatically
The only thing I don't understand yet is the tolerance level for change as sometimes, if you have gone up or down a few pounds since the last weigh in it thinks you are a GUEST user and you have to manually set where it should sync but this is rare
Easy to set up, perfect for keeping track of weight but like others have said it's inconsistent for bodyfat. I knew this before purchasing so it still gets 4 stars from me.
17/02/18 - Been using it for a few months now with no issues, surface does show marks but that's to be expected. Still updates to the mobile app with no problems and battery life is still good. Keeping it at 4 stars due to price and bodyfat inconsistent readings.
I have spent 2 hours trying to set it up this morning. I did manage to set it up but its connection to the Wifi was very temperamental - it said Wifi was weak when I was sitting next to the hub (yet my mobile phone displayed a full strength signal). Once set up, I weighed myself but it displayed weight only, no bodyfat composition or lean mass. The display screen goes blank and you're not sure whether it is still trying to collect the data. After a while, you realise it isn't. It also did not sync to my phone and there does not seem to be a manual sync option as there is with my Blaze. I reset it, removed the device from the App and started the set up process again. The same process as above happened on repeat. Also the set up instructions are inadequate, there is no detail, just cartoon images more appropriate for a 5 year old. As this was a gift, I hadn't read any reviews prior to receiving it, but now having read both Amazon reviews and the Fitbit Community Forum, these problems seem rife. I fear this product will frustrate me greatly and will be returning it.
