Good product, after you get past the setup
Posted by: Scott from: on
I picked this scale up the day it was released. Price-wise, a little steep for what you get, I'd wait until the price drops. As far as set-up goes, if you have a Garmin ant+ USB/stick, I'd go the over the computer route rather than through the Garmin Connect app for iPhone. I did it both ways (I actually factory reset it) and found that Garmin Connect over my browser was easier and less buggy than the app (it seems like the app has been buggy since it's recent overhaul). When I setup over the app, the app wouldn't immediately sync the weight info., when I did it over my browser, it seemed to sync to the app almost immediately. Maybe Garmin's servers were slow and the app was actually fine, maybe the factory reset had something to do with it. Regardless, it worked. Just an FYI, if you want to add additional users, the must have a Garmin Connect account. Adding my wife was easy, I sent her an invite to use the scale over Garmin Connect, she accepted and had to go through the setup process which was very simple. As far as it functions, all the metrics are consistent, no wild swings in their values. I still question how it can accurately measure some of the things that they claim the scale can measure, other than weight. A good product particularly if you live in the Garmin world (activity trackers, fitness watches, cycling computers), in which I do, which was a major motivator to get it.

It said I was fat!
Posted by: kr33per from: on
Not really, but the weight it gives is pretty accurate. The display shows your weight to the tenths, but in the Garmin app it shows it down to the hundredths. I'm still a little skeptical about the other measurements it provides, specifically the body fat percentage, but I'm still happy with the fact that I don't need to manually log my weight in my Garmin app anymore.

Performs as advertised
Posted by: Mlr1 from: on
The scale performs well and integrates with data from my other Garmin devices. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that I did have a few minor hiccups with the initial setup. I'm confident Garmin will smooth out the process.

Accurate scale and quick uploads
Posted by: GSkoubis from: on
I had the Tanita Ant+ scale but it required me to bring my Garmin Edge every time I wanted to weigh myself and upload the results. I bought the Withings WS-50 but the data didn't transfer to Garmin Connect where all my cycling and workout data is. I'm very happy with the Garmin Index. It weighs me quickly and uploads the data almost instantly to the Garmin Connect platform. All my exercise data is in one place now.

We used a Fitbit Aria for a couple of years, but it died unexpectedly. We set out on a search for a new scale and looked at the Garmin one closely. Like many Garmin products, the firmware is a little glitchy when new hardware is released, so many of the initial reviews cited problems that have been since resolved.
One of the things I like about the scale is its size. I have US 12 feet so many scales do not fit my feet. This one is perfectly sized for larger feet. Weight (and other body composition metrics) is quickly calculated and uploaded to Garmin. If you are a Garmin fitness user, you'll love that the weight is synced to watched via a smartphone.
I haven't found much utility in some of the extra measurements the scale makes, but I did enjoy looking at them the first time. Perhaps these can be used for longterm trends, but time will tell on that.

Not perfect but as good as it gets nowadays
Posted by: fcozapata from: El Paso, TX on
I switched from a Fitbit Aria to this Garmin and the additional functionality is great. It seems more accurate and better quality, plus the integration of my weight data with my other activity info makes more sense. If you have any Garmin device for training this is a must have. I took off one star because the weighting process still takes too long, in my opinion the process could be more streamlined. Still this is faster than the Aria, instead of 1 minute it takes about 40 seconds for every sample taken.

Better than Aria and the more expensive Tanita
Posted by: thebarbeito from: on
One of the best things I bought in 2015 if not the best thing! The way the flawless setup went and how it connects to all my garmin devices is truly a thing of wonder. And the option to have up to 15 people makes it easy to share this scale with my team mates and have their weight and other bio info added to their watches and edge devices. def worth the buy...maybe a best buy?

Makes tracking easy
Posted by: EWC1138 from: on
I use Garmin sports trackers and an activity tracker. This makes it cake to upload and record weight tracking as well, just step on the scale and it uploads to your Garmin account...

Great tanita substitute
Posted by: nelonero from: on
I was very bummed that my tanita didn't work with my Garmin Fenix 3 and this is much better!
Wifi connectivity works great!
