So how does this compare to the Withings smart scales which are now called the Nokia Body+ I think? It looks like the Garmin can handle more users and supports ANT, meanwhile the Withings is cheaper and will give you the weather forecast along with historical data on the scale display itself.

Depends on your devices. If you are in Garmin ecosystem, will be easier with this ones. Otherwise, syncing will be a pain.

In terms of quality, these scales are about the same (don't expect much apart from weight), DCRainmaker did a great review some time ago.
Why cold? Can someone recommend cheaper WiFi weight scales that will work seamlessly with Garmin Connect??

Reading that review, the takeaway seems to be that you should only buy this if you're in the Garmin ecosystem as you say. I suspect the cold votes are because of the product not the price.

Broadly speaking - yes. From other view, cold for a product category itself is like voting cold for hue bulb just because it is not very useful without hue hub.

How do you feel about voting cold on hue bulbs because xiaomi yeelights exist and are 1/3rd the price individually, plus work without a hub?
How accurate are these for weighing cake ingredients.... nom nom nom

Negatively, if I'm on a market after Hue ones and they are on a good price. (even if Xiaomi or Trafidri are cheaper)
Heat added.

Cannot believe people have voted cold on this.

I’ve yet to see these drop below £100, even on eBay. They’ve held their price for a long time.

I have the Fitbit scales but I moved over from Fitbit to Garmin a couple of years back as did my partner. It’s a pain having everything synced via the app / website except our weight / body metrics.

You’re never going to find perfect body metrics at home unless you’re willing to buy proper pro kit, but as a guide to how you’re doing these are spot on. They show when you’re making good progress / gains and if you need to make changes to your current routine.

As a Fenix 5X owner, cadence sensor, speed sensor and footpod owner these are spot on for me. But I fit the Garmin user profile. I guess if you own Fitbit or similar they’re not much use.
Mine turned up today and I love it.

A lot quicker and easier to set up than the Fitbit scales. Seems more accurate too. And of course provides more data as Garmin often does.

Another smart feature is that when I weighed myself and then synced my watch, my watch knew my weight. Means more accurate stats for fitness tracking.

Thanks again OP.
Quick report after 3 weeks of ownership - couldn’t be happier with them.

Much quicker, more reliable and more data than the Fitbit scales. Easier to set up and never drop connection or lose data. Spot on.

Also loving all the extra data in Garmin Connect and the Garmin app.

People who voted this cold are mad. These never seem to drop in price like this. And unlike the Fitbit ones there are hardly any second hand ones about because they’re good.
