  1. Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program () This scale is sdurty and solid-feeling, and seems built to last, especially if you are on the larger side. I have been using a Tanita scale that feels much flimsier and even wobbly when I step on it, but I didn’t get that feeling with this Omron scale. I also really like how you can program in your information (age, gender, height, etc.) so that you don’t have to enter it each time you use the scale. That being said, this scale seems to run a few pounds high in weight and also a few percentage points over on body fat; it just isn’t accurate. How do I know this? Last year, I had a Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) scan performed to check my bone density, and it also revealed my body fat and weight. DEXA scans are considered to be one of the gold standard measurements, and are extremely accurate. I’ve been using the information from my DEXA scan to track my progress on my Tanita scale, and this Omron scale has been giving me a reading that is three pounds over my actual weight and about four percentages higher than my actual body fat. Another reviewer mentioned a study done by Texas A&M that showed that this scale reads about 3.5% higher, and, as that reviewer mentioned, if you Google it you can find that study on-line. Overall, I would give this product 3 1/2 stars. If you know that its readings run a bit higher than your actual ones, you can still use this to track your progress. Most experts agree, in fact, that if you are trying to reduce your body fat, you can just focus on the downward trend to know you are meeting your goals. However, it would be nice if this scale were more accurate.
