A few weeks ago when I weighed myself, my scales gave me two different readings in about thirty seconds. I knew that couldn’t be right, so when I was given the chance to test out some new scales, I have to admit I was pleased.
I liked the look of them before I had even opened the box, mainly because the screen looked futuristic with it’s blue colour. Taking them out of the box, I liked the fact that they were heavy, and also that there were stabilisation pads all around the outside. My old ones only had circular feet so that may have had something to do with the off and on level spot I needed to find to get an accurate weight.
You need four triple A batteries for this set of scales, but they are included in the box and easy to install. You have the choice of weighing in KG, LB or stone with these scales. I used to be a LB person, but as they weigh me at the gym in KG then I seem to be swapping about to this one at home too.
I put the scales in three different places to test out the accuracy. First of all the same spot I used in the kitchen on my old scales. Next I moved to a carpeted area, and this isn’t the place to put scales, as the weight can’t distribute evenly. The next spot I chose was the living room. It came out exactly the same weight as the kitchen said, so this is a massive positive for these scales.
The scales have some good positive points for their low price tag of just over £20. They will turn themselves off after a few minutes to save the battery power, they auto calibrate according to the surface you put them on.
I’ve also been comparing my weight with these new scales and also the scales at the gym, as I’ve been being a good girl and completing a proper programme a couple of times a week to improve some stats.
They are thankfully working in sync together and are spot on in weight.
Disclosure – I received the scales free of charge but all opinions are my own
