Please try again later. Broke after 5 months of use by 1 person. Manufacturer does NOT honor guarantee. After spending a lot of time, etc. Then they said they would not replace the scale. I ordered this scale to help with my weight-loss journey. I weighed lbs. If you are reading this review you are probably trying to wade through the endless amounts of weight scales available online and in various retailers. I was initially concerned with the price of this scale because there are many other scales around this price range than have been reported to stop working after a few months.
I'm the kind of shopper that is willing to pay MORE for a quality product. I decided to try this scale, and have to say I am pleased with the product. The stainless steel looks good to me, no complaints here. The digital screen is very easy to read with the black on blue background. I have size 13 feet and can still fit on the scale. To test the accuracy, I weighed myself at my doctor's office with one of their "professional" scales and immediately weighed myself when I returned home.
The difference was only about tenths of a pound. Personally, I find this variance acceptable and I'm pleasantly surprised with this accuracy. I purchased this scale in September and it is still working great in December ! I will update my review if any problems arise. Amazon kindly helped me resolve this matter. This scale needs to be on a completely solid floor.
Even then measurements can vary by up to 5lbs within 10 seconds of previous measurements. This scale is precise, consistent and accurate. Instantly calibrated, agrees with my old dial scale which agrees with my doctor's scale after a month of joint testing. No squinting at tiny painted black lines and variability upon reweigh. Step on-step off, no variability or ambiguity.
Weigh and drink a bottled water and re-weigh. You'll see the difference. Because this scale is so precise, you must pick a consistent time of day to weigh for the reason above. First thing in the morning is best or you may be mislead because it is so precise.

I originally replaced the old scale with a different brand, which was off by 4 pounds for every I returned it for this Taylor model and have no complaints. This scale feels nice to stand on, registers fast and accurately, and is very easy to read with the illuminated display. The Taylor scale shows the same weight at each weigh-in when I step on it two or three times! The older "Eat Smart" scale rarely showed the same weight and that made it quite difficult for me to diet.
I was never sure what I really weighed. See all reviews. Most recent customer reviews. Published 29 days ago. Published 1 month ago.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. In my case, it also makes sense to test my glucose and I was so happy to find out that I can test both, individually, with the meter in this kit. I'm here to tell you that this kit has everything I needed to get started except for the strips; I purchased Precision strips for Ketones and Precision strips for Glucose at the same time, thanks to Amazon's suggestion underneath the product that says Frequently Bought Together.
I was concerned that I needed to purchase a lancing device but it is included, along with 10 lancets to get you going. The User's Manual is very well written. I was hoping the log book included as well would fit but I was wrong.
Nevertheless, on-the-go or at home, I'm organized and ready! It is very unethical to sell an outdated model when you know the current strips are not going to work with it.
I should have listened to the advice on these pages but thought the problem would be fixed. Do not order a model unless it has "no coding" written on the front. Received this meter and test strips shipped from a different vendor but still ordered from Amazon this week and got a very rude surprise.
I spent about 15 minutes on the phone with Abbott Diabetes Care overseas call center trying to figure out why my test strips did not have a calibration strip and why the meter kept asking for a lot number, finally determining that the test strips they're now selling do not work with the meter being sold here.
Thankfully, Abbott is sending me a new meter free of charge to replace the old meter not sure if what I'm getting will test ketones as well -- hope so! Otherwise, I'd have been sending this one back for a refund. The meter itself looks to be quite simple to use. Abbott Lab's explanation is unacceptable. I kept getting two different readings just seconds apart, usually around mgl off from one another.
So I decided to test 6 glucose strips from the same blood sample kept squeezing out more blood from the same finger and I was shocked at the inaccuracy. It ranged from to in one sitting! I called Abbott Labs, maker of Precision Xtra, and this was the conversation: Can I get a new meter? I did go to several drugstores that are listed on your website "where to purchase our products" but none carried Precision Xtra, only Freestyle" Abbott: If it's not enough blood to measure accurately, it should read 'error', or not read at all How do I know if the was low or was high?
Depending on the test results, you can tell if your meter reads high or low. To me, this is totally unacceptable. One person found this helpful. I bought this in and was satisfied with it, but recently found that my blood sugar readings were all of a sudden high and not correlated with what I was eating.
I used my husband's Contour and the readings were normal. I don't see anything on how to reset the machine. I'm not a happy user. I used it for ketone measurement but now I wonder if those measurement were correct.
I was using this meter since the strips were cheaper than the Contour but now I know why. I used Contour for years without a problem. I'm going back to it. If you were looking to replace an older style monitor the white one, as pictured here because you liked it, or the lancing device better than the newer versions Nice, compact, easy to use model.
I am using it for monitoring blood ketones as part of a nutritional ketosis "Low Carb High Fat Diet". Although the test strips are a bit pricey, I realize that they each have some microelectronics in each strip.
