This is very accurate for weight.
As another reviewer mentioned, the best way to get an accurate body fat read is to make sure you don't select the "active" mode when setting up your scale. Keep pressing the button and make sure you don't see the picture of a man/woman running (active).
Body fat analysis may be off by a 1-3%, but as health expert Tom Venuto suggests about scales like this in his book BURN THE FAT, FEED THE MUSCLE, the point is to see what percentage the scale says and then keep tabs that it's going down or maintaining (if that's what you want). This isn't a commercial body fat/muscle density analysis scale, but it's a good way to keep track of rough numbers to achieve fitness goals.
