There's nothing like being on a diet, and finding out how much you weigh on your bathroom scales is totally different from what the doctor's scale said you weigh.
On the bright side, you get to choose which of the two scales you want to believe. If your scale says you weigh lighter, well then, that's obviously the correct one. :)
Anyway, the one thing we all know about bathroom scales, and the weighing game is...(drum roll please) you get what you pay for. The more expensive the scale, the more accurate the weight. So, that lovely priced $9.97 bathroom scale from Walmart ,doesn't cut it.
So, let's take a gander at a bathroom scale that's price list is $49.95, but sold on amazon.com for a mere $28.95 (plus FREE shipping) - the EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale w/ Extra Large Backlit 3.5" Display and "Step-On" Technology [2013 VERSION]. How's that for a long title!
So how good is this baby? 10,197 folks (nope, not a typo) have given it a 4.6/5 stars. That's a record that's hard to beat.
Here's the specs on amazon.com's #1 best selling digital bathroom scale:
1) Top is made of 8 mm thick tempered glass.
2) 12 x 13 platform
3) No slip feet to keep it from moving.
4) 3.5" lighted with Accubright blue backlight display.
5) Holds up to 400 pounds.
8) Uses 4 AAA batteries (included).
9) 4 high-gauge precision sensors
10) Comes with free tape measure
11) Plain ol' scale. No bells and whistles.
Pros and cons gleamed from user reviews:
• Attractive scale
• Great customer service.
• Easy to read
• Hard to turn on.
• Takes about a minute for it to recalibrate itself.
• Some claim it has a short life.
• Others claim not accurate.
Here's my thoughts on the product. Take a look at the stats.
5 star: (8,223)
4 star: (990)
3 star: (363)
2 star: (254)
1 star: (369)
986 users gave it between 1 and 3 stars. 990 gave 4 stars. And the biggie - 8,223 users gave it 5 stars! Those kind of stats speak loud and clear to me - this is one really good bathroom scale.
Is it perfect? Nah. Of course not. No scale is. But! It sure beats a lot of other bathroom scales out there.
I can't see where we can go wrong with this one. Like I mentioned earlier, it's not a bells and whistle kind of scale. It's just a basic, good and reliable scale that does the job it's supposed to do, and does it better than a lot of it's competitors. :)
Oh! And did I mention this is amazon's #1 best seller in digital scales! :)
So, give a click here and check out the rest for yourself. It's definitely an excellent buy, and easy on the budget.
