    Lidlís HealthForYou Fitness Scales 13th Jan 18 at 11:00 AM
    I bought myself a set of Lidlís HealthForYou fitness scales on Thursday, they are going back on Monday. I donít think they are fit for purpose.

    The scales will only talk to smartphones, but the App is my main bug it was a nightmare to set up and even now Iím not 100% sure if it is working correctly and there is no communication with other leading fitness apps or hardware. When I look at Bluetooth on my phone the scales are not picked up!

    Iíve reset the scales twice and also deleted the App on my iPhone 6s but still canít get the scales working

    While I could possibly get the App problem sorted there are other issues e.g. you can't change units directly on scales,

    Maybe other members have had different experience but until Lidl get App sorted and let it speak to other devices Iím afraid they will be getting many returns. I must admit I was surprised at Lidl letting a product this buggy onto the market

    Returned the scales to Lidl today and got a prompt refund with no fuss, cash refund there and then. This was a disappointing buy but it hasn!!!8217;t put me off shopping at Lidl!!!8217;s their goods are great value for money. Unfortunately the app let them down bigtime

    Moving on I would like to get a pair of smart scales. I have a Fitbit HR2 the most obvious set would be Fitbit!!!8217;s own scales, but advice and suggestions about other scales would be welcome
