[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had this scale for a month now and used it daily. I feel as a scale, the device functions as it should and provides mostly accurate information. Weight seems to be accurate compared to another digital scale I own, but the calculation for my personal BMI is not correct. The scale will not allow for full on-screen weather information unless you allow it to connect to your wi-fi, which makes sense but I feel is unnecessary. As for the product's construction, it feels sturdy, with a glass top and plastic bottom case. I question why the glass top extends beyond the bottom casing, and feel if the exposed glass edge bangs up against something, say the wall it sits next to, the top could break. Visually the scale is very nice looking, with a sleek dark look and bright digital display screen. The app was not so great. The permissions felt overreacting. I do think an app for a scale in my bathroom requires using my phone's location at all times. It also required connecting with another health app to enable step tracking. I also experienced occasional sync issues between the phone and the app, or the server and the app. Overall, it is a nice looking and functional scale, but the digital experience felt lacking. For now I plan to use it as a non-app connected digital scale, and maybe will try the app again in the future to see if it has improved.
