Warning: Nokia Body+ ( Withings scales) Amazon prime

8 replies
Found 11th Jul
Ive noticed that in 5 hours there is a Prime deal for the Nokia (Withings) body + scales.
I urge you to look at the Health app reviews first if you are thinking of buying them.
I have owned these scales for over a year. They were great but when Nokia took over Withings and updated the app they no longer work with the app and are now no more than a basic scale.
When the app updated I instantly lost connection and havent been able to connect since.
Nokia are not replying to any complaints of which there are many on the app site.
A shame as they WERE good but I wouldnt want anyone to waist their money on a company that cant be bothered to deal with a major issue like this.

Glad to hear that but there is a big failing amount. Just read the reviews.What I find frustrating is the lack of service in response to all the complaints.

Is your branded Withings or Nokia?

Mine is branded Withings. Reviews seem to suggest that you might need to uninstall and reinstall the app. I didn't have to that though.

A set of scales is often for people that spend too much money on their waist.

Done that umpteen times. There are 4 stages of connecting and if I'm lucky it will get to number 2 which says start app yet the app cant install the scale.It sees the scale but never connects.
I even bought a replacement just in case mine were faulty and it was exactly the same, obviously I returned them. Its not my phone as it connects fine with anything else plus we've tried 2 other phones in the house with no success.

Hmm, sorry to hear about all your problems. I guess I must've been quite lucky with my scale.

"waist their money" - I see what you did there, very clever!
