I have some of these, pretty decent. Well worth a tenner

Struggling to understand how to use it, I've programmed it for myself - when I stand on it, it displays my weight but no further information after waiting for a few mins...

Having the same problem with mine. Works perfectly for me but programmed for someone else and it does same as yours. It works when I stand on it with their 'profile' though so maybe something to do with their feet positioning.

good price. hear from me.

Many sellers on ebay have these for £6.98 with free delivery.

Not sure about that for this exact model. Do you have a link?

Great set of scales, still spot on accurate after 2yrs. Have only just replaced the battery, 1xcr2302 for less than £1 and that's with daily use. Hot from me

when you push on the middle of the scale with your foot to turn it on, take your foot off and press the "set" button then choose your profile which should be 1 then wait for it to go to 00 then stand on it BARE FOOT to get your bmi, body fat % and body water % reading

Yup, just standing on it gives you a quick weight reading. You'd hope that it would use the default profile, as it's a pain to constantly have to move the scale and press the button (if the button was at the back of the scale you could at least tap it with your foot - the more expensive Salter at my gym has that)
Interesting that you say press the set button (btw you can just press that to turn it on, no need to press the centre). My manual has that and other descriptions for the two other buttons - is yours actually labelled set? None of my buttons are called what they are in the manual, and no diagram to refer to. Obviously not difficult to work out what they are, but still.

I have these scales and had the same thing for a while until I realised that you had to have really good contact between your feet and the metal plates for it to do the full readings. Try dampening the soles of your feet a bit.

I only weigh myself so I just tap the middle of the scale with my foot, but yes if you want the full reading then your better off pushing the middle button and then press the button on the left to choose your profile. Mine says (starting from the left) "low, set, high". I'm currently using mine on carpet but can never get an accurate reading. I've changed the scales feet over to use on carpet. I know I'm at least 73kg's, but it keeps telling me I'm 68kg's.........Maybe I've got a dodgy one or just a very kind one lol

Ok for weight.

Useless guesswork for the rest, obviously.

Are they still accurate or are you just in denial lol

Have the same issue, worked a few months ago but now all they show is weight. I've emailed Salter asking for some help. For the price, they are a baragin - when you get them fully working.

For those who can't get the other functions to work... These are so easy to use, you press with one foot on the scale till it cycles to the profile number you want, then stand on it when it's ready, make sure you are bare foot, feet clean, or slightly damp.

You do not need to press the SET button or any other buttons.

You need slightly damp feet for the other functions to work! (I have one).

one slightly damp foot? seems a bit weird, if you don't mind me saying!

I bought one a few weeks ago, it's only good to show your weight, all other readings are very inaccurate. If you want it to also measure your body fat buy something else.

i have one also and here are some tips:
1. if you look at the buttons, written on them are low, set, high which will help setting it up.

2. if u want all the readings then turn on, press left button to go through the profiles (1-4) then stand on it with slightly damp feet. cover as much of the metal plate as you can (dont worry if toes go over slightly) and wait.

if that dont work try again, might take a couple of attempts to work out where to stamd and how damp to get ya feet.

for me i just splashed some water on feet and wiped on bathroom mat and it worked

if using on carpet.....try using in different places as surface needs to be flat and level. so if dont work in spot try another spot. seems to depend on how worn carpet is. also make sure u attach the carpet feet

hope that helps.

i got from mine from amazon at this price not long ago and i love them

How cheap can you get scales that work with Apple devices?

You don't need to press the buttons, when it's off hold your foot on there and it will cycles through the profiles, let go when it's the profile you need and then stand on it.

This deal was already posted - hotukdeals.com/dea…359

I bought one through it last week.

Ordered one of these last week, so waiting for it to arrive. Already have one at my parents place but the fat % feature seems quite a way off, so I wouldn't buy it for that alone. It told me I had 27% body fat, despite the fact that I'm 186CM, 80KG and a 32" waist... Seemed a bit off to me.

I would go test out some other scales elsewhere if you can for consistency but just because your a 32" waist doesn't mean theyre wrong. You can have a skinny fat person.

I agree - I am 5tf 1, weigh 7.9 stone and two weeks ago had a body fat % of 22, this week it has gone down to 19.? an my muscle increased.

From what I've learnt theres a tolereance in these scales and is only to really give you an idea. We had a nutrition guy come into work and had some scales very expensive ones though and i came out at 19% fat but said knowing the scales your more like 17% so even the expensive ones aren't 100% as just a difference in the water in your body can give a slightly different reading one week to another.

Best thing you can do is make your readings as consistent as possible so same time and day each week so soon as you have woken up on a monday have a pee and get on the scales

Mine has fault, every time I get on it the screen shows "ONE AT A TIME PLEASE"

I analysed my fat when I last looked in the bedroom mirror and I came to the conclusion that I had definitely eaten too much.

Bioelectrical impedance is not an accurate way to measure body fat. You need calipers.

Only £8.99 now.

actually it is priced a tenner now
