Wyze whole business model is to sell for 5 to 10 dollars over cost to disrupt the market. They are doing it again in this space. Over all a good company that stands by their stuff and is security minded and listens to it's user base.

Prices are good for that scale, but 8tnuses Bluetooth...seems like wifi would be a smarter option.
I can't think of a single reason WiFi would be the "smarter" option. Range limitations and insane battery drain alone are huge reasons not to go with WiFi. Care to elaborate on what possible pros there are to running a battery-powered device with limited usage and one-to-one data exchange on WiFi?

Also leave it to wyze to always ruin their costs with shipping costs
EXACTLY. I can't believe they sell their devices on such razor-thin margins and can't eat the cost of shipping across the country, too! I'm gonna go buy an identical device for twice as much, just to show 'em!

There's two ways to approach the shipping. Build the shipping cost into the item cost, and make more per item on multi-item orders while simplifying overall pricing. Or, keep the shipping cost separate and be able to advertise a lower cost and promote multi-item orders (cheaper overall cost to the customer vs having shipping built into each item).

Seems others have not had an issue with this, I..e withings.

Bluetooth means you gotta go to the bathroom with your phone or have it nearby, that's annoying. If I have to bring my phone I might as well plug itn in directly too.

I think your thoughts about wifi being a power hog are a bit overstated. Withings scale which is WiFi has no issue lasting 3/4 of a year

I mean, I can't argue with that. Not because it makes sense, but because it's indefensible. I hope you realize you're in the vast minority, if not the only person in the world who is having such a hard time with this particular feature.

I don't recall saying it can't last 3/4 of a year using WiFi. I'm suggesting - because, you know, facts - that Bluetooth 5.0 use significantly less power.

Talk about overstating. You're comparing this $20 to a $75 one and suggesting that taking your phone to the bathroom is some sort of onerous task.

Look, you do you. Like your $75 scale? Great, keep it! And hey, it's always good to point out those aspects of a product that don't work for you, as someone, somewhere, might be in the same situation. But try to keep a little perspective, eh? Your complaints are not valid for the overwhelming majority of people, and I would think that most people would look at saving $50+ worth taking their phone to the bathroom with them (if they weren't already, which of course they are).

On checkout it said will ship after 3/26 but not anything more specific than that.

If shipping wasn't $8.99 I'd buy the scale.

you could always buy this at 74.99$ to get free shipping if you'd like... perhaps that'll make you feel better about your purchase?

on the product...
how is a pre-order an SD again? is this a promo price and it raises when released to the market? don't see that stated anywhere... sure looks like MSRP for a new product.
