The problem I had was the Balance doesn't take into account calories in. So if my body requires 200 less calories a day to lose weight and I eat 200 calories less, balance doesn't know that and still wants you to burn more and makes an impossible to reach goal. It only goes by your weight, so again if you burn enough to reach 100% and your weight goes up, it just tells you it just tells you to burn more by increasing your daily goal. I've been using MyFitness Pal and only using the scale to track my weight with a link to MFP. Then I let MFP do the math for calories in/out. When I first got my Balance I pretty much ignored the Polar Daily Goal. Consequently, a good day was only 40%, but I was slowly losing weight and getting fitter.
