SOURCE: body fat scale Question
Like all body fat tests, body fat scales don't actually measure your body fat percentage. They determine your body density. The examiner (or the scales) then uses a formula to calculate body fat percentage based on body density. These formulas just predict your body fat. Unfortunately there is no one formula that accurately predicts body fat for the whole population. Differences in age, gender, ethnicity, body size, and fitness level all have a significant affect on the results. Well, whether body fat scales measure your "true" body fat percentage or not doesn't matter! As long as they can accurately monitor changes in your body composition over time, that's all you need.

Not sure if you knew this but you can change the batteries. I had the same problem and had forgotten to change the batteries. However, the weights may still fluctuate because you need to reprogram the settings. Unfortunately, i do not remember ever having an instruction manual...

Look on the bottom of the scale for a sliding switch to alternate between Kg and lbs.
If you do not see one then remove the little cover and check inside the battery compartment for it.
Comment back here and rate with 4 Thumbs up if this was at all helpful.

Welcome to FixYa!
1. The Platform on which you stand may be hitting the base of the scale. The corner that your heels are on is adjustable from the bottom of the base. Turn the scale over on its side and remove the round plastic foot. Insert an Allen wrench into the now exposed hole and turn the screw to raise that corner of the platform.
Note: If you adjust one corner, be sure to adjust the opposite corner to keep the platform levelor.
2. Look under the base of the scale and make sure no foreign item is lodged into the base and that no parts have come out of the base.
Thank you for using FixYa!
