First scale I got in a long time that actually seems to work. Very precise and repeatable measurements. Easy to use and read dial.Reviewed by: Alan Plotts from Harrisburg,PA on (6/30/2015)
I think this is a very good scale. I've had a over a month now. Time will tell better. I'm impressed with this seller. I haven't had any issues, but I think that if I do they will be there. Just a guess.Reviewed by: John P from Phoenix, AZ on (5/3/2015)
At first I was hesitant to buy a new scale... but had felt for some time that my old, cheap one wasn't reading accurately. I researched on Consumer Reports and found that this model--the Taylor 7506--has the best overall value and is consistently accurate. My price shopping led me to Old Will Knott Scales as the best buy, and I was very pleased with the service. And I haven't been disappointed by the scale either (except for the moment when I realized my old scale had been deceiving me into thinking I weighed four entire pounds less than I actually do ;)Reviewed by: Laura from Doylestown, PA on (3/17/2015)
mine does not work.Reviewed by: scot campbell from harlingen texas on (2/19/2015)
This scale is easy to read in pounds and ounces and nice to look at, whether in a bedroom or bathroom. I definitely recommend it.Reviewed by: Grace Cooper from Lawrence, KS on (1/2/2015)
Neat, compact, lightweight and very accurate. Easy to read. Great deal for the price. Service was excellent-prompt delivery.Reviewed by: Mark from San Diego CA on (12/22/2014)
Got exactly what I wanted. Accurate, quality for not to much $$ money $$. It weighs right in line with the much more expensive " Weight Watchers " scales.Reviewed by: Doug from Pierson Michigan on (11/19/2014)
This scale is perfect! It's accurate, light weight, compact, easy to use & has pretty design. It fits under a couch or a bed but I don't feel the need to hide it. Would recommend this to anyone in need of a great scale!Reviewed by: Donna Corna from Uncasville, CT on (11/16/2014)
This is the first review I have ever written. I was so frustrated with my previous scales that were not consistent. If you stepped on five times, you had five different readings. Yes, other scales offered variances in weight gains/losses but they were not consistent. I have enough of a memory to remember what I weighed yesterday. So this scale works for me.Reviewed by: June Sanford from Connecticut on (10/28/2014)
When we got it it was easily set up and has been used daily. We found it to be accurate, and very stylish. We love it and are very happy with our purchase!Reviewed by: Charles G King from Studio City, California on (9/24/2014)
First one I received did not work, but Old Will promptly sent another. I bought the scale because I the one we had was giving inconsistent readings. This one is very consistent, but reads 4 pounds less than the scale at the gym. When I see the MD next I will verify....Reviewed by: Joe Famulary from NC on (5/26/2014)
This is a beautiful scale. Heavy and durable.Reviewed by: Dana from Chula Vista, ca on (3/20/2014)
I love this scale! I put it on a hardwood floor in our second bathroom, where it won't get bumped. Weighs perfect almost every time...unless I try to fool it and pick up a slipper and reweigh without the scale noticing the extra weight in my hand. I finally decided not to worry about it, because since Christmas, my weight has been dropping .4 - .6 ounces each day for the past week, which it should with decreasing caloric intake. This is our second scale from Old Will. The first one wouldn't always give a reading without figiting with it. I called the company, and they Fed X's a new scale by the next day. Can't complain a bit, with a lifetime warranty.Reviewed by: Debbie Estes from Pine, Colorado on (1/4/2014)
I got prompt delivery and the scale worked well out of the box (but make that plastic battery separator tab a little easier to pull out, please!). HOWEVER...I had ordered extra batteries, and trying to be organized thought I'd keep them somewhere very obvious for when they were needed. So, I taped them to the underside of the scale readout section. The next time I got on the scale it showed me every possible weight in the universe, and finally settled for blinking 100 over and over. Very flattering, but half my weight! I removed the taped-on spare batteries (which were NOT in contact with the scales), BUT...nothing I could do would bring it out of its funk, not even leaving it overnight. Just as I was about to pack it up and send it back, I decided to treat it like a confused computer and reboot it by removing the battery. That's when I discovered you need a Phillips head jeweller's screwdriver to change the battery. Come on Taylor, how about a fingernail or similar battery cover removal technique? Anyways, my poor confused scale recovered just fine after a minute without power, and has behaved fine since. So, it gets 3 stars from me - 5 for function and value when behaving normally, and 1 when in neurosis mode.Reviewed by: Clement Kent from Falls Church VA on (11/23/2013)
I picked this scale because all the reviews that I saw were positive. The last scale that I had never showed the same reading twice in a row. This Taylor shows the same weight when I weigh myself. Thanks for a great product and I highly recommed this to anyone looking for a good reliable scale.Reviewed by: Richard B. from Seattle,WA on (11/11/2013)
We have used a balance beam scale like in a doctors office for over 30 years and finally wanted something smaller and less imposing but did not want to give up accuracy. The Taylor 7506 is perfect. See through feature makes it almost invisible compared to the bulky balance beam and it is very accurate. We love it and would recommend to anyone.Reviewed by: Ray from Scottsdale, AZ on (10/8/2013)
We have had so many scales and had just about given up until we did some research online and so many times we were led to this particular scale. Reviews were all good for this product but the most important piece for us was how many comments were left about how accurate the scale weighs you! ALL the reviews were on target!!! I am now writing to let all those other people out there hunting for a great scale that weighs accurately no matter where you place it on the floor, and at a very reasonable price that this scale is for you!! :) We are loving this scale, the wider size, the sleek look and BEST OF ALL our family can now trust the numbers that appear on the display. Very happy with this product would recommend to ALL!Reviewed by: LEIALOHA from Surprise, Arizona on (7/30/2013)
I am delighted that the clear format means it is hardly noticed and seems not to take up any space in my already small area. Perfect for a small apartment. And yes, it weighs accurately. Sigh!Reviewed by: Beverly from Philadelphia on (7/22/2013)
We are very satisfied with our Taylor 7506 scale after researching Consumer Reports for one. The accuracy is excellent, the price was acceptable, and it is nicely designed. We especially like the contoured design of the back side of the platform. This provides easy walk-by when the scale is positioned against the wall, unlike the square design of our previous scale.Reviewed by: A Parker from Tallahassee, FL on (5/12/2013)
I LOVE the Taylor scale. We were vacation in Cancun, Mexico and they had these in all the rooms - what a great way to keep your weight in check on vacation and never a change if you weighed in multiple times!! I just had to order one immediately when I got home. It's exact and never changes!! I also love how it gives you your weight to the ounze instead of .5 lbs!! I would recommend to everyone!!Reviewed by: Denise from Independence, Ohio on (3/19/2013)
After activating Battery it worked well and looked great at the chosen location. Well worth the price and can recommend to anyoneReviewed by: Robert Barreca from Pensacola, FL on (3/9/2013)
When I took the scale out and inserted the battery the first thing I did was test it for accuracy. I put a 10lb dumbbell on it, twice, and it was dead on accurate. It's a keeper!Reviewed by: Jim from Maine on (1/27/2013)
I was having trouble with consistency and variation in indicated weight with changes in ambient temperature with my previous bathroom scale. Consumer reports recommended this scale and so I tried it as they inidcated it was consistent and accurate. Upon receipt I compared it's indicate weight with my old scale, with and without me holding a 15 lb. dumbell while weighing myself. The new scale weighed me about 2 lb heavier than the old scale, and was exactly 15 lb. heavier with the 15lb. dumbell, which it should have been, of course. The old scale varied by as much as one half pound with/without the dumbell on repeated weighings. I conclude the Taylor 7506 is a much more accurate and consistent scale. Temperature variability is more subjective, but in this area I believe it is also superior. I'm very happy with the scale, it is a very good value and Old Will Knot Scales were knowledgeable, courteous, and fast in processing. Very nice experience.Reviewed by: gerry from alabama on (12/9/2012)
I tried it. It works very well & I recommend it.Reviewed by: Carroll Gibson from Baton Rouge , La. on (11/4/2012)
I really like this scale, I purchased it because my husband & I joined Weight Watchers and our old scale weighed us 4 bls light. This one is more accurate with in .5 to 1 lbs of the weight watchers scales. (heavier) Which I like would rather be less when I weigh at WW than more. I would recommend this product.Reviewed by: Rebecah Cunningham from Morristown TN on (9/17/2012)
I am very happy with it. Seems to be very accurate so far, and simple to use.Reviewed by: Paul from Sunnyvale, CA on (9/3/2012)
An outstanding product. The best weighing machine I have ever bought. Very reliable and accurate. Thank you.Reviewed by: K Mehta from New York on (8/24/2012)
Sorry was disappointed, the scales weights is different to senitiveReviewed by: Barbara from New York on (8/20/2012)
This new Taylor scale is simply perfect. Y'all have a most varied selection and the shipping was on time and packaged securely. I'd recommend this scale and the company to all.Reviewed by: Debbie Aiello from Philadelphia on (8/16/2012)
I purchased this scale based on Consumer Reports. Apparently, it is suppose to be very accurate. Well, I have a very difficult time getting an accurate weight. Most of the time I get an ERR because it is so sensitive. When I do get a fixed weight, if I weight myself 2 times in a row, there could be a variance of 5-10 lbs. I don't think that's accurate at all. I am very disappointed in this product.Reviewed by: Mary Ann Victor from Macedonia, Ohio on (5/20/2012)
The scale meets my every expectation. It seems to be very accurate, with large size numbers. I like the glass body. Works exactly the way the instructions indicate. I was surprised how fast the scale arrived after I ordered it. I don't think a customer could ask for any better treatment than Old Will Knott Scales provides.Reviewed by: forrest Call from 5445 N. Sheridan Rd., Chicago, IL 60640-7456 on (5/7/2012)
These scales are wonderful, easy to read and seem to be very accurate. Were sent in a very timely manner and we are very Happy with them. I would recommend them to anyone.Reviewed by: Joe and Joyce from Kansas on (5/5/2012)
The scale itself is accurate, easy-to-use and looks great. Also appreciate the lifetime guarantee and the service from OldWillKnott!Reviewed by: Nancy from Solon, Iowa on (3/28/2012)
We love this scales. Very handsome, yet doesn't not obtrusive in appearance. Accurate, convenient and well constructed. Arrived quickly and in perfect condition. We are very happy with this scale.Reviewed by: Marianne from Fairfield, CT on (2/25/2012)
I bought this scale because of Consumer Reports rating.It arrived in very short order. Had very great price and works great.Reviewed by: Harvey Hilbert from Borger, TX on (2/25/2012)
My old scale would give a different reading if I checked it more than once within a few minutes. The Taylor 7506's reading is consistent. I also like that you don't have to tap the scale and wait before weighing yourself.Reviewed by: Barb Smith from Zephyr Cove, NV on (2/24/2012)
I am very happy with this...I purchased this model because Consumer Reports rated it very highly. It's cost can't be beat. I haven't had it long but it appears accurate and well built. It arrived very quickly and well packaged.Reviewed by: Ruth Wilson from Soddy Daisy, TN on (1/11/2012)
Questions and Answers
A: The Taylor 7506 takes CR2302 lithium batteries. You can find these batteries here, it is $2.04 for a 2 pack - http://www.oldwillknottscales.com/two-cr2032.html. You can also find these batteries at the grocery store, as well as anywhere that sells batteries.
To change the battery you will need to turn the scale over and open the battery compartment. You will then remove the battery that is in there and put in the new battery that you bought. You will want to make sure that the plus (+) symbol is pointing upwards. After making sure that the new battery is in, you just need to replace the battery compartment cover and turn the scale back over.
A: Hey there Paul,
So, the two feet nearest your toes while standing on the scale are further apart than the two nearest your heels. The feet nearest your toes are approximately 12.2 inches apart. The feet nearest your heels are approximately 10.4 inches apart, all width wise. The feet are approximately 9.1 inches apart from front to back, or length wise.
A: Hey there Ardath,
If you flip the scale over so that the display is facing the floor, you should be able to make out a switch marked "lb" in one position and "kg" in the other. Simply slide the switch into the alternate position and you should be all set.
A: Hey there Hugh,
This particular scale is perfectly safe for use with pace-makers. You wanna look out for scales that have features involving body mass, bone density, and things of that nature.
A: Hi there Jynnaveve,
I've just contacted Taylor for some clarification. The Taylor 7506 has a 5 year manufacturers warranty. They changed the warranty length back in 2009 from lifetime to 5 year. They do, however, still honor the lifetime warranty for the older scales. This information is specifically for the Taylor 7506.
A: Hey there Casper,
The Taylor 7506 has a switch located on the under side of the scale. Flip that scale over and flip the switch from kilos to pounds.
