You’ll know by now that I’m not a huge advocate of weighing myself. Once every two or three months on average is how much I do and usually it’s half dressed as I run through the changing rooms of the gym when I teach.
When I was offered the chance to review these scales, I thought why not? They could live in the bathroom where I could weigh myself more accurately pre/post shower every now and again.
I had a quick flick through the instruction book – I like things to be simple to use. It takes 3 aaa batteries (supplied) which I slipped into the unit at the back of the scales. It calibrates by standing on it, letting it do its thing, then stepping off. The next measurement you then take will be the accurate one. The display flashes up the result and when it holds still thats the final weight.
The display is huge. Can’t miss it. Huge and bright. It displays your weight in both a digital format and using the old school dial (which is actually “electric”) and you can choose between kg and lbs (via a little button on the bottom you press).
It also has a 24hr alarm to remind you to weigh yourself at the same time each day. This is one setting I won’t be using but for those on a weight loss journey this may come in useful.
I am not big on weighing myself frequently either….looks like a neat scale though.

I got to try these a while ago. I think they're pretty ace as scales go.
