Weight Watchers Bathroom Scale - Review

For the most part, I weigh in at my Weight Watchers center, because I get frustrated with my own scale at home! You see, I bought my scale at Walmart a long time ago. It's white and cost me about $10.00! I thought it was a great deal at the time. Unfortunately, had I known that I would be weighing on it almost everyday, I would have taken time to invest in a higher quality scale that would give me more accurate results.

You can imagine my excitement when I received an email from Conair asking me to review their Weight Watchers scale free of charge! Before I go on, I must confess that I love Conair and am very excited to review one of their amazing products!

Weight Watchers by Conair Glass Body Analysis Scale (Model WW78)

As soon as I received the Conair scale in the mail, I could not wait to get it out of the box and begin using it. I carefully removed the plastic tab from the back and began to use the scale!

I have to tell you that this scale was so easy to use that I almost couldn't figure it out! You see in the pictures that the instructions say, "Tap here. Wait for 0. Step On." Sounds easy enough right!? Like I said it was too easy for me.



What can I say!? I'm so used to my sad, white Walmart scale, where all you have to do is stand on it and wait for it to weigh you, that it took me several minutes before I could get this scale turned on. After I finally gave the scale a really firm tap it turned on. I felt so silly that I couldn't get it turned on, so I am being honest in hopes that you will not make the same mistake I did.

The first time I weighed myself, I was the exact same weight I had been when I weighed in at my Weight Watchers center. This was exciting for me, because I hate the inconsistencies between different scales. I look forward to weighing myself throughout the week and knowing that I am seeing the most accurate number on the scale.

I just want to highlight a few great features that this scale has, that your ordinary scale does not. This scale will measures body fat, body water, bone mass, and BMI which are all factors of successful weight loss. It also has a four-user memory, which I don't need. However, I want you to know that it is available!

This Weight Watchers Bathroom Scale, by Conair is an amazing tool to help anyone that is trying to lose weight! I cannot wait to begin to use it on a daily basis and recommend it to my Weight Watchers members in the meeting room as well!

CONAIR sent me this scale to review.  All opinions expressed in this post are my own and are 100% true and genuine.  I was not compensated in any way for this review.

I have the prior version of this scale and it's pretty great, but I had the same problem you did. It's not really a "tap". It's more like "gently move the scale, and it turns on". Looks like this hasn't been improved on much, but the extra features do sound nice! (mine just shows weight).

Do you have any idea how much it retails for at the store? My scale is like yours--a $10 special that I have relied on daily (sometimes twice daily) for the last 3 plus years, on my journey to lose 178 pounds and maintain the loss. I always find it interesting when I see a scale advertised the weight is always 124 or 126. It that supposed to make you think if you buy that scale you will magically weight 124 pounds? Wish it worked that way.

New scale sounds interesting. Body fat, body water, and bone mass are the factors which we often miss during weight checking. There is more than just calculating your BMI. It better to go for this scale for to get the clear data about your body.

I have the previous version of this scale and have had it about 2 years now. Love it. About the tapping to turn it on. You shouldn't have to move it to turn it on. I stand in front of it, tap it with my foot to turn it on, then weigh. Make sure you tap someplace in the middle. I got mine at target after many years of having bad scales. A good scale is worth the investment. Good luck everyone.
