Anyone else using these? I took the plunge and got some a couple of months ago.

Very good scales.

They need to make it a bit more straightforward to add family to the weighing regime - the first time I tried setting my wife up with the app, it erased me and inserted her instead!

Yes have had for 5 years now and no problems. Amazed at how long the batteries last.

Got one on special from ascent a while ago - super handy for weight and forget - then look at trends later.

Their body fat thingy is a bit random (+/- 5% daily at times) - and their apps state that body fat should be in the 10-15% range (yeah, sure, I'd love a 6 pack), but otherwise really cool.

freitasm: I have the Fitbit Aria scales and three Fitbit at home - but currently using a Withings Activite Pop.

Opinions on the Pop?

Have come very close to buying and my birthday is coming up...
