Accurate but battery life very short

Comment:
We purchased this scale based on the CR recommendation. The first scale had to be immediately returned because the LED's on the display were to faint to read on the right side of the scale. <br />The replacement we received worked great for about two weeks when we got a battery low warning. We figured the battery may have sat to long (as it turned out wishful thinking on our part) so we went out and bought a new battery (one of the coin batteries, not cheap). This time it ran for about a week and a half when we again got the battery low warning. Again figuring maybe we just got a bad new battery we bought a multi pack of the batteries and try again. This time we got the message in about 5 days. So we have given up on this scale. Two strikes and it is gone.

Comment:
This scale can't be accurate because the<br />results are variable from one weighing to the<br />next. I step on and get one weight. Step on<br />again and get another, as much as 3 lbs different<br />from the first.<br />Consumer Reports, your testing on this product was<br />abysmal.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
