Last week, I called the manufacturer of my scales to ask a few questions. One call I am happy I made!!! Like several blood glucose meters, my scales must be calibrated often, or an innaccurate weight reading will be given. Was totally unaware they need calibrated. The rep I spoke with stepped me thru to calibrate. Mine wouldn't calibrate, so I got to box up and ship to them for an exchange. Thankfully there is a 5 year warranty, and it will take 2-3 weeks to receive the new scales. In saying this, I don't recommend these scales. Why? Being unaware of needing calibration and when not calibrated, they will show a regain (even a large amt) when weight hasn't been regained!! Mine showed a 16.2 lb gain in 14 day's! I flipped out!!! I so miss the old fashioned scales we step on and get 1 reading!!

Wow, that's good to know! Thanks! Which model do you have?

Your welcome! I can't state which model. All the scales say on the scale is: Health o meter @ top. When I typed the model # into the website, there is no product found. Bought the scales December '08, so I'm certain mine have been discontinued, and will receive a different scale when exchanged.
