Being overweight, scales have not been my best friend, as to me they was just a constant reminder of how overweight I had become, I have recently made a life changing decision and have decided to start living more of a healthier life, we are taking control of our food intake as well as being more active and not being afraid to step on those scales and take control of the horrid answer!
When these scales arrived, my first thoughts was WOW! they are so different to my old scales, my old scales look boring and uninviting compared to these ones. what I love is that they have a distinctive retro look to them and the chrome really sets them off, I know it’s not the look of the scales that give you your results but how much nicer are these scales compared to the old style scales. The 14 cm (5.5 inch) dial and integrated digital display is a lovely size and makes reading your weight more easier and from any angle too.
Another feature I love is the synchronized electro-mechanical dial and LCD automatically illuminate and instantly point to your weight in lbs and kgs and the results are very easy to read. I love that I can sneak in the bathroom in the dark and check my weight myself without the added pressure of everyone asking what my weight was. These scales also have an in-built alarm so you can weigh yourself the same time each day if you wish, how cool is that a little reminder to help you to keep check if you are like me and wanting to loose those pounds, its best to keep check.
I admit when it came to standing on the scales for the first time I was hesitant, purely because I hadn’t stepped on scales for quite some time. These scales have a large platform made of impact-resistant tempered glass with slip resistant feet, ideal for that extra stability.There are four high precision GX sensors that weigh up to 180 kg (400 lbs) with step-on technology that captures precise weight measurements upon contact (no tapping required) so there really was nothing for me to worry about. Whether you are trying to loose weight or muscle tone these scales will keep up with your body changes and automatically turn themselves off when not in use to conserve battery life. There was one feature missing on these scales that I would have liked and that was to weigh in stone.
These scales normally retail for £29.99 but are currently selling for £19.99 on Amazon.
