So I bought the Sunbeam Health o Meter Dial Scale whenever I was trying to lose a few pounds. The scale isn't that accurate considering that it never aligned up (or came close) to the weight the scales showed at doctor offices. If someone is trying to lose massive amounts of weight, then the 4-8 pound that the scale is usually off probably won't matter a great deal. I personally don't use the scale anymore and it has dust collecting on it somewhere. This product is not worth the buy even though it is cheap.
