You must not be dehydrated - do not use first thing in the morning or immediately after a workout or after consuming alcohol. Use 3 hours after a meal and after voiding your bladder. Women may experience fluctuations with retaining water, and those on diuretics may see inaccurate readings. You need to weigh yourself without clothes.

I don't have a manual. My scales have been very variable, like this morning showing that I had gained nearly 5 lbs in one day. I've been sick and am not eating much, so I know that can't be...


I don't have a manual. The readout is in kilos rather than pounds some of the time. How can I get it to read in pounds all the time? Also I replaced the batteries. Are they supose to be both with + up? I have a replacement heart valve so I don't want to know body fat. How do I make sure it is off?

My weight is not accurate. I weigh 260+ and the scale reads 245 to 249 and is inconsistant. I just replaced batteries (CR2032)for the second time


Very few electronic scales are accurate as they are a function of a resistance measured against a voltage. They may be accurate when you buy them, but over time the electronic components decay and read differently as the components are cheap 10% type resistors and capacitors and cannot hold their specific values over time.
If you want accuracy, you will have to get a balance type scale that can be calibrated on site.

Understanding Your Readings
Healthy Range Indicator
(Please note this function is only applicable on adult mode, as no standard healthy ranges have been established for children and athletes.)
Your body fat monitor/scale instantly compares your body fat reading to the healthy range chart. Following your body fat reading, a black bar will flash across the bottom of the display, identifying where you fall within the body fat ranges for your age and gender.
(-): Underfat; below the healthy range. Increased risk for health problems
(O): Healthy; within the healthy body fat percentage range for your age/gender
(+): Overfat; above the healthy range. Increased risk for health problems
(++): Obese; high above the healthy body fat range. Greatly increased risk of obesity related problems.

Wrong weight


Finding replacement parts for store bought scales can be a fun experience to say the least. I would purchase a product from Seca or Health o Meter instead. Their parts and service centers are right here in the states and are genuine about their product accuracy and costomer service.

Body Fat Reading Changing Drastically


The fact of matter is those devices are inacurate for some reason more so on smaller females. But if you recently took a bath or drank water it will alter the results, they suggest taking it first thing before bath or eating in the morning at same time everyday to get a more acurate reading.

This may be getting personal but implants will also affect the reading making it totally useless for you to use. I have them and the electrical impedence devices read me much higher then what i am, a few minutes later will read me lower.

I would head down to your gym most of them will do a free body fat test with the calipers which is more acurate (as long as they know what they are doing).
