Where do you get the 'normally £20' from? Argos says this had a 'was' price of £16.49.
#2
These look like the normal ones in Asda that are £10 normally (instore in long eaton) for anyone that goes in there.
#3

Strange deduction.

Are these at all accurate? Also the battery life on the last electric scale i had was appallingly bad, are these likely to be any better?
#6
I've got a set of these. Battery life is quite good - mine are going strong 2 years later. In terms of weight, yes they're accurate. In terms of body fat, water content etc etc, I don't think any method of measuring through the soles of my feet will ever be especially accurate so I wouldn't advise buying these scales for that purpose. Good deal, voted hot.

Told my wife it only worked if she was naked. tee hee hee
#8
these are the same price in asda in-store if you can't get them from Argos.

IME you cant get cheap accurate scales, although most cheap ones are good enough to give you a general idea of how fat you're getting.

I like how its called 'Ultra Slim...'
Its almost as if they are trying to subtly draw people into a deception of weight loss with these.
Good price but only goes up to 25 stone. Shame as I was going to get one for my gargantuan brother in law..

I've always wondered, if you bought two and stood on each one, could you combine the numbers for an overall weight?

You could always buy two, he can stand on one with each foot :)

how's about you stack two scales one on of the other? It would take up less floor space.

I've had these and the Analyser is a pain to use most of the time, especially when you have more than one user!
#19
Just paid £15 for an apparently "half price" one from sainsburys. The body fat thing is absolutely terrible (roughly 10% off the actual figure)
#20
Got these, they're very good.

I have these and they seem to weigh me a few stone heavier than I think I am! Strangely they work fine for the rest of the family!
#22
Not great body fat readings. Mine jumped from consistently 16% to 24 % sometimes so....
#23
Decent for a tenner. Mine's always been consistent with the body fat readings.
The price of these tends to fluctuate between £10 and £20. Been £15 for the last couple of weeks on Amazon.
#24
Recently purchased these from asda C&C online for £10!
Great scales, very slim, great for general weight management!
Better than those traditional scales!
Recommended by me!
#25
Same price on Amazon. Have been since November.
#26
£10 at Morrisons too as just picked one up

How do you know?

bought one from asda for tenner over a year ago.
#29
Bought these when they were offer last time and returned them as the white plastic under the glass makes them look cheap which is a shame as the rest looks good. This is obviously only a problem if you are bothered about aesthetics.
#30
I have these and I have to say I was surprised by how accurate the body fat reading was. I had my body fat measured at my gym and these were within 0.2% of the gyms figure. It is consistent as well, body fat and bmi (not that I pay much attention to bmi) are within 0.1% on a day to day basis.... And seems to work in the sense that my body fat went up over Christmas! If it doesn't take a reading at first I wet my feet slightly which seems to help- I guess it improves conductivity.

I may have got lucky with mine.
#31
I'm sure i saw these discounted at my local Tesco
Would have bought them but the reviews on Amazon said weight measurement wasn't very consistent.
#32
They seem to be selling the Salter scales at reduced prices in various shops. We bought some at Homebase recently, were marked as discontinued with several different models available.

I have recently been testing a variety of body fat machines for an article in the times. Everything from £40 to £10,000 machines, and my body fat varied from 18.1% to 19.3% ....These read at 29%

ah, thanks. I've seen these machines, and the hand-held ones, and wondered how accurate they are and therefore how accurate you can gauge one compared to another (i.e. which one is actually correct) but if one is so far from the average then it's likely to be the bad apple. Mind you it could be the only accurate one :D I wondered if you'd had a proper baseline done with calipers or such?

(PS, glad you replied - I misread your original as being 10% different i.e. others read 19% and this read 20.9% and thought it wasn't too bad!)

Yes, I have had calipers too. I am pretty into fitness, and know just from looking at myself that about 18% is right and that 29% is absolutely nowhere near correct.

I think this kind of body fat analysis is only good when compared to itself (ie if I dropped to a 28% reading on the same machine it would still indicate a drop in body fat)

I'm of the same opinion, the actual measurement is meaningless to most (you know if you're carrying too much fat etc), but to track results, as long as you use the same equipment to refer each reading against it doesn't matter. The only danger would be for those that think they're stuck at a certain level and nearly kill themselves to remove that last 5%, which would be impossible. But I think you'd know at that point.

a case in point - it took me a while to realise my gym had the measure on the wall at the wrong height. So my original base readings and calculations were all off (the trainer did the first calcs) so my subsequent calcs all seemed out of kilter. Making myself "10cm shorter" put everything straight and true, though the actual calculations showed I would be obese, if I truly was a short-****.
