Review and Giveaway... Weight Watcher's Scales

Back in August, I was given the opportunity to review a set of scales. I am a scale junkie, so I was too excited about it! I already had two set of scales that were okay... But these scales looked really nice so I was eager to see the difference. I am too cheap to pay more than $20 for a set of good scales, so free = great!


These are the scales I received...


Weight Watchers® by Conair™ Glass Body Analysis Scale Model WW52
The scale has a sleek, streamlined design along with a blue backlight on the 1.9” LCD screen with 2 lines. It features impact-resistant tempered safety glass platform with stainless steel and includes bone mass analysis. The 12.2” x 12.8” scale has a 400 lb. capacity and includes long-life batteries. It retails for about $49.99.


My opinion... I really like it. I really only used it for checking my weight, but it also does a bone mass analysis. It was definitely my favorite out of the collection of scales I own. The numbers are easy to ready, and it gave me an accurate reading that didn't change each time I stepped on the scale (I hate that!).


Notice I said "was" my favorite... 


Craziest thing happened just this morning... I nudged the scale with my foot to position it before I stepped on it, and the scale SHATTERED all over my bedroom floor! What a blog to the ego it would have been if it had shattered when I stepped on it! Scared the crap out of me and my daughter who was standing close by.


I guess it was a fluke... I don't know. Crazier things have happened to me. But the company rep has offered to send me another one, which I think is very nice. Hopefully it will last longer than 2 months next time!


The scale that I'm giving away tonight is a different model, so hopefully everything will be okay with this one, lol.


Check it out:

Since I was a lucky winner of the Sephora gift card don't add me to this contest, I love to win things, but I also like to be fair.

I was just going to say I hate it too when you step on the scale and it will say a number, you get off and step on it again and the number is different...ugh...and usually higher..lol

Hollie!, I went to the Dr. and the scale said I weighed 64lbs. more than I figured I did. Ok, I would agree with maybe 5-7lbs. Come to fine out that the scale's batteries were going out. I had to listen to this whole lecture about why was I gaining so much and why so fast. And another lady got on the scale and she was way heavier. So the staff decided to weigh and that's when they realized the scale was wrong...

I haven't had anything really bad happen...my scale has said the same weight since July! Does that count? LOL

Lisa said...

nbeEverytime I step in the wii scale she say "oh..." Which pretty much translates to "wow you are heavy" I would love a.new scale so I didn't have to listen to wii lady anymore hahs

savvygeorgia said...

The only bad experience I have had (as you mentioned) every time I get on it, it gives a different reading. It's so frustrating I don't even use it anymore, after only having it a little while. It seemed like the best option at target but I don't trust it at all and haven't bought a new one since.

Dominiquej said...

I haven't had a scale shatter, but I have one shatter my heart with the number I said:-)

Christie said...

My worst experience I would have to say is when I stepped on it at my heaviest weight. I then knew I had to get my weight and health under control for me and my kids.

I guess my worst scale experience was paying $40 for a scale that, after a few months, would give me a different reading each time I stood on it. I hate that too!

The worst thing to happen to me on the scale is the same as most of the rest...a different number each time you step on! And, of course...stepping on to find that you're 3 lbs. heavier after a week of exercise, water and calorie-counting! What the...?!? LOL

My worst scale experience was getting on it and getting an "E" which meant that I was over the 350 lb. weight capacity. :-( However, it took several months and 25 additional lbs before I got my butt in gear to get the weight off.

emdenia said...

Wow That's really dangerous. It worries me that a product could shatter so easily. It would be impossible to have something like this with young children around.

Miss T said...

My wii scale making a sad sound and then categorizing me as obese lol.

Sara said...

So I stepped on my non-digital scale when I was pregnant with my son and the spring in it popped. (I didn't know this.) When I looked at the measurement it was rotating in circles.

Yes, I cried.

Stormy@Big Butt Theory said...

I haven't had a specific bad scale experience but I do hate it when I weigh on Monday and then weight again on tuesday and I 5lbs heavier for no particular reason.

Mizz White said...

I would have to say my worst experience was when I wighed in the first time at weight watchers. I has weighed myself on my home scale and it gave me one number. I drove the 5 minutes it took to get to the center wearing the exact same clothes and it said I was 10 lbs heavier than what I weighed in at while home!!! I was mortified...then I threw the house scale away.

Kyu .L said...

Yo! If you have a digital scale anytime it gets moved it needs to be zeroed out (step on it, let it go to 00) then get on and weigh.

I always do it twice just to make sure, if I get 2 in a row it's good.. Now however if you weigh, then go walk around the house or do something it can affect the number because of the blood flowing around. Good Luck!

Just the usual. I got on the scale and it said way more than I wanted it to say. It said I'd gained ten pounds over two days despite getting off and on three times!!! I didn't know what the heck was going on. I was terrified I was retaining weight due to a bad heart or something... Anyhoo, came back that same afternoon and weighed again and it said I was at my regular weight! I don't know what the heck was wrong with that scale but it had me worried for a while.

Shannon said...

My worst experience with a scale was stepping on it and seeing the number much higher than it should be, only to find out I had the scale placed on uneven tile, once I leveled it out, the number was back where it should have been. The scale rules my life, if it's low I am in a great mood, and if it's high I get depressed.

Hey, not entering as I live Canada but just wanted to stop and say hello. New follower. Very nice to meet you.

The scale acts pretty well for your mind.....psychological treatment :)

Amy said...

Nothing too major but there is something kinda "heartbreaking" when a scale says, " Err" (ERROR).--- Even tho it just may be an error in stepping on it, it never looks good! :)

Definitely sign me up! :)

Lol, I had the same thing happen. I was cleaning the bathroom and dropped the toilet bowl cleaner on the scale and it shattered. Scared the **** out of me. Unfortunatly I did not have box or receipt so I was out of luck

My worst scale event was when I went to the doctor for a check-up after our company switched insurance companies. I just finished the process of separation and divorce & when I stepped on the scale, I started crying. The doctor had to give me tissue and told me it's something that happens during divorce and he gave me great words of encouragement.

My worst: I joined in at my job for a coporate YMCA challenge to see which group as a whole would lose the most weight over 8 weeks. I was training for my second marathon and on the final weigh in day I had run 48 miles during the week. I wore light clothing, I didn't eat or drink that morning, I was running like a maniac...and in front of all of my collegues, I was read my weight and informed that I hadn't lost a SINGLE pound- OR gained any muscle... or lost any inches. How could that be? I don't have ascale at home and would love one.

wowza - that sounds like it must have been super freaky. Glad neither of you was hurt!

My most starting scale moment was stepping on and realizing 20lbs had gone just by going gluten-free :)

I loved your blog. having to loose weight has become more of a necessity than a choice. I had to do that too. Every one around me was fit and look fabulous i was the only one who was FAT. Than i decided to turn things around. Joined the gym the very next day and started controlling my eating habits. every time i had sugar craving i substituted sugar with Natvia http://natvia.com/ it helped me reduce 10 pounds.
