iHealth Scale {Review}

10 Flares Filament.io 10 Flares ×

I have been needing a new bathroom scale for months now. It has been on my list of things to purchase, and because of my constant state of confusion when shopping {read: I have two kids with me asking me for everything under the sun} I always seem to leave the store without it. When the opportunity to review iHealth Scale, I was excited to try it out.

When the scale arrived, the first thing I noticed was how nice it looked. A slightly weird thing to notice about a scale, I know, but so many of them are bulky and don’t fit with my bathroom decor. I loved the silver and glass look of this scale, and that it matched my bathroom decor perfectly. I was also very interested in the fact that it could be hooked into my iPhone and iPad to keep track of my weight. The app was free (a plus!) and was pretty easy to set up. The first time using the scale was a cinch, and was excited to add it to my weekly “get healthy” routine.

Unfortunately, the next use didn’t go that great. I couldn’t get the scale to reconnect with my iPhone, and I had to delete and reinstall the app twice before it would reconnect. I also had some trouble with the scales accuracy. Now, I know that every scale can be off a bit, even from one weigh in to the next, but the iHealth Scale was way off. I weighed myself three times in a row, getting at least a pounds difference in my weight each time. When I went to the doctors the next day, I saw that my scale was even farther off than I had thought.

I was very bummed.

Needless to say, I haven’t used this scale much since then because of the inconsistency and the problems connecting the scale to the iPhone app to record your weight. This is a fantastic idea, it just needs a bit of work in the delivery area.
