Hard to setup. The scale cannot distinguish between my husband and me (weight and body fat are different), and sometimes my information is sent to my husband's fitbit account instead of mine. Occasionally my body fat is not calculated for some unknown reason and this calculation is inconsistent for my husband. I am very disappointed because I was looking forward to using this product as I have been using the Fitbit Flex for over six months and love it. This scale might be better for a single user, but for the two of us it just isn't working out.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
