I have reviewed a few scales over that last couple of years and liked them. So, you might be asking, what makes the EatSmart Precision 550 one different from others? Let me tell you!
First of all, this scale is a bit wider than the usual sized scales, this is good for those like me that have big feet or for those who need a bit more balance. It gives me the room all the way around.
Next, the scale is made for people that have a bit of "fluff" on them, in fact, it goes all the way up to hold a person who is 550lbs. Thank goodness I do not weight that much but if you did and need to see weight loss, then this is the scale for you. The only irritant I see is the box with the extremely skinny person on it but I suppose, that is just me.
The scale itself is a thin metal material but again, do not let that fool you because it can hold the ton-age. There are four footings on the bottom that make the scale steady. I am sure that you could use the scale on a shorter carpet but I prefer the hardwood or tile so, that is what I tried it out on.
The numbers show up nicely in black on a blue background. They are large enough to see so that I could not possibly miss them. The only thing I did notice is the company said that after you stepped off, the numbers would continue to show for a few seconds. This did not happen for me but it was also not a deal breaker. I don't think I want someone coming up behind me and seeing how much I weigh.
The scale does take 3 AAA batteries which for once, actually came with the product I was reviewing. I appreciated that, but I do say that they are also cheap batteries so, you will probably want to get better batteries for long term use.
Overall, this is a nice scale to have and glad it is in my home. This gets a 5 star from me.
