Awesome, thanks for checking. I recently read something that said these things are usually significantly off compared to a tub test. I went with calipers for skinfolds at home. Skinfold testing isn't great, but at least it's better than these scales.

Either way, I'm no expert. But an F isn't good.

We actually have one of these. My wife bought it off Amazon half a year ago. It's a decent scale: quick on, fairly accurate, bright backlight. The only problem I have is that it keeps telling me I'm fat. But I'm not sure I needed a scale to tell me that.

Fakespot doesn't grade the product itself with and F. They are only saying there are fake reviews.
Many of the reviewers acknowledge having received the product for a review. That doesn't instantly make the review a fake.
I have never received any free items from for a review from anybody, but I can say I have bought 2 other items from etekcity and they are both excellent. I bought the digital food scale that was a slickdeal a few weeks ago for $8 I think. That scale is very accurate and I love it.
And btw, NOTHING is as accurate as a water test for BF%.

Oh I agree fakespot doesnt tell the whole story, but when only 5 reviews out of 90 are verified, and of those 5 three received the product for free, it should raise some concerns about the true quality of the product

Etekcity always offered free sample in exchange of review, thats true, but more than 80% of the reviews came from unverified purchase, it is unusual.
