Only minor bugs - fantastic otherwise!!
When you first set up your account - which I had no trouble with - you select units. I selected lbs for weight/mass. When I did my first weigh, though, the app was showing #st#lb. People don't realize that st means stone, which is 14 lb. It's not used in the U.S., but it is still used in the U.K. It is still a form of measurement with lbs. Then I realized the app didn't save my unit setting correctly when I set it up, so I just went back in and set it to lbs again, and it held. A little bit of patience to locate and check the unit settings could have made this app a better experience for other reviewers who didn't know what st meant.
This app communicates seamlessly with LoseIt and Fitbit and Apple Health. I no longer have to enter my weight or any other of the metrics manually anywhere. THAT is impressive. Fitbit doesn't even bother doing this! My biggest concern would be that connectivity, and Renpho works just as I hoped it would. The measurements and values themselves are consistent with a recent body composition analysis I had at my gym.
The app is aesthetically pleasing, and you can choose your color scheme. Most of the screens and accessing data and charts are fairly straightforward. You can even look at trends based on time of day of the measurements. I'm very pleased with both the app and the scale.
I had such high hopes for a smart scale.
I needed a lot more detail than just simple weight and thought this was a perfect choice. It was given to me as a gift and I was very happy initially, But the percentages that it gives you are dangerously inaccurate. I weigh 174 and I am 5’9” tall. If I actually had the fat percentage that this said that I would need to be at 5-7% body fat, I would be dead. It currently lists my fat free weight as 130 pounds. Seriously. It also does not calculate BMI correctly and adds any change to your weight as fat rather than distinguishing between fat and muscle as it is fraudulently advertised. I have emailed and attempted to communicate with the company about this repeatedly and all they ever say is if you are unhappy with your purchase you can return it at any time. They don’t even try to deny that it is broken. What was sold to my family as a smart scale to surprise me with is nothing more then a regular scale with distracting special effects and bells and whistle’s that don’t correlate to reality. RENPHO should be ashamed of itself For continuing to market this product as if it had an ability to correctly read your body mass index and muscle through your feet. It is fraud and bulls***. Very very very disappointed.

Good Scale readings a bit Quirky
Just got the scale this past Saturday and though I’m still overweight I have been exercising regularly over the past few months. So I first tried “athlete” mode and I had only lost 1.1 lbs from when I weighed myself from the previous week, which was kinda surprising because I had started keto and I did more steps I had done ever over the past few months of working out. So I switched it over to “regular” mode and the scale dropped an additional 2.5 lbs!!!🤔 So I’m confused as to how switching the mode of this scale actually changes your weight! I’m pretty sure peoples weight is the same regardless of athlete or regular mode 🤷🏽♀️. Body fat %, muscle mass, etc should change but it doesn’t change what you actually weigh! So after switching to regular mode everything is great, I love that it syncs to my fitbit that’s so awesome! But if you are using athlete mode know that you’re almost 3 lbs lighter than the scale is reading. Please fix this RENPHO.
