Summary: Easy to use. Large display screen. The accuracy is not the best (It gives different measurements (0.3 kg changes) in different parts of the same room). I am using this without moving it and measuring my weight over time and it seems consistent.
Summary: When I turned on the scale, it asks me to set the date, but no buttom was allowing me to do so. I have a scale that tells you in which year it was created (2008). Thats it! Please can anybody help me to exchange the product or have a refund. Thanks.
Summary: very solid scale and BCA combo. Have BMI, Fat %, Muscle %, BMR, Body Age, and record 180 days of history. The readings are accurate and consistent. Very easy to use. Will recommend to anyone who are on a weight loss/fitness program to monitor the progress. Excellent product.
Summary: We bought this looking for accuracy, knowing the quality of other Omron products, as well as a reasonable price and we are very pleased with it. It took reading the directions a couple times to get the technique down, especially since we don't use it for the body composition measurement every day, but rather use it just as a scale most of the time, unless our diet and exercise program has significantly changed our weight.
Summary: The Omron Body Composition Monitor and scale is a complete weight and fat-management solution. It is certainly costly but simple to use. IF you are short on funds, we found that the body fat measurements were not much more accurate, however, than a good pair of calipers. So don't feel as though you must go this expensive route if you want accurate measurements.
Summary: I ordered this scale to keep track of my weight loss progress. I work out regularly and intend on converting fat to muscle, so simply tracking my overall weight would not be a good indicator of progress. After a bit of research I decided to order the Omron HBF-516. I'm so happy with my decision. The price on Amazon was very reasonable (about 50% of list) and the item was delivered very quickly. About the scale... It's very easy to use.
