A very nice scale. The design is sleek and elegant, and it is very slim. Fits nicely in the corner of my room. The children have enjoyed weighing themselves and are very amused to see their numbers go up and down from day to day. The colorful backlight is bright and the numbers are very readable. It was well packed. I really adore the design. Seems sturdy, too.
Originally I had trouble getting it to settled on a weight for me, although I had no trouble with the kids. It would cycle and cycle around. It also would fluctuate depending on where I put my feet. I had it on a very firm, very short carpet and I believe that was the problem. Once I put it on a tile floor, it settled on a weight every time.
All in all, it’s a nice scale for the price. Good design, good construction. The user function works.
I wouldn’t pay full price for it, and in fact, will be donating it. There are two reasons for that. One, if you’re going to get a smart scale, pay a tiny bit more and get one that is bluetooth enabled. Two, with kids in the house the “colors” for change is a very, very bad idea. Saying if you have gained or lost is nice. It’s interesting. But when the big RED screen flashes because you’ve put on a few ounces, it’s a very strong psychological signal for BAD. And all of my kids are still at growing ages. The last thing I want is for them to feel like putting on pounds is BAD. Sheesh. I didn’t think that through before I picked it up.
If you’re not interested in tracking your weight on your smartphone, and you don’t have growing kids in the house, but you still want to keep track of gains and losses, hey, great scale for you.
I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest review. Thanks to #SMARTWEIGH
