Product Description

Product Description

Everyone knows the importance of staying healthy. Doing enough exercise, staying relaxed and keeping your weight at the right level are all important and with the addition of the HN289 you can monitor your progress quickly and easily at home.

Measuring weight accurately is a key factor when pursuing health goals. Moreover, the habit of weighing oneself whilst experimenting with diets, exercise regimes and weight loss programs can provide helpful insights when aiming towards improved health. To enable people to continue measuring results and reaching weight targets, OMRON has developed low-cost, easy-to-use and fashionable scales to fit in every household.

Simplicity for easy results

The HN289 Digital Personal Scale offers OMRON's usual high quality, while making measurements easy to obtain. By skipping the lengthy "tap on" process, you can step on and the results are instantly displayed. You can then choose to see outcomes in either kilograms, stones or pounds on the clear LCD display.

Stylish design for every home

With increasing health consciousness, home use appliances such as weighing scales are gaining popularity. These are compact bathroom scales. OMRON's HN289 Digital Personal Scales offer a stylish solution for any home. Whether you prefer a vibrant Ocean Blue, a softer Pink Blossom or on the contrary, a classic Silky Grey or Midnight Black, the scales colours are suitable for everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced but brilliant product 24 April 2014
By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Colour Name:Midnight Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This would have got 5 stars if the cost was around 15, but having tested them I wouldnt pay the 25 asking price; In terms of aesthetic design, I love the sleek simplicity, it looks kind of like a glossy slate tile just sitting there, and it feels very well made and robust.
Its not too big to be ridiculous, and not too small to be difficult to stand on.

Functional design again for me is great - just select kilo or st/lbs and then set on the floor. When you want to get weighed, just stand on it and it displays your weight in very clear, easy to read digital.

But thats essentially all it does. There are fancier models that show your fat and water % etc, for not a lot more, and theres nothing this one provides to make you pick it over another, other than the Omron name.

So for me, if all you want to do is weigh yourself, its over priced. If you want to weigh yourself but have scales that match your modern/ sleek decor - I could completely understand why you would lay out 25 for these because they look great and do a great (simple) job.
Otherwise I'm not convinced these are a best buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Attractively styled and extremely easy to operate 19 April 2014
By Mart TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Midnight Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These are very sleek and attractive scales, finished in black glass with a smooth wipe-clean surface which is easy to maintain. Measuring 270mm (width) x 290 (depth) x 20mm (height) the slimline design makes them easy to store either upright or tucked out of the way under a unit.

Operation is as easy as it can be. You simply step on the scales, no zeroing necessary, and your weight is displayed after about 2 seconds. Everything is automatic, powering up when you step on, displaying your weight for 7 seconds, then powering off to preserve battery power (3V CR2032 battery supplied). The display is easy-to-read black LCD numbers.

There is just one button to operate, located under the front edge of the scales, to display the desired units of measurements, which are either:

Kilograms (to the nearest 100g)
Stones, pounds and ounces
Pounds only

Just one point to note is that the scales need to be used on a smooth surface, rather than carpet, to give a reading.

These are great looking, accurate and practical scales.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Fine 15 May 2014
By E. Smith TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Midnight Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've come to this after years of old fashioned mechanical scales. It's so much easier being able to simply read an exact weight rather than guess, so I'd never go back now.

These scales are very easy to use. Just set your stones, pounds or kilogrammes preferences and away you go.

I can't vouch for how accurate they are, but that doesn't worry me too much, as I just tend to compare readings, regardless of how accurate they are. I'm happy with these scales and have no reason to buy any others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Omron digital scales 20 April 2014
By book fan VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Midnight Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This digital weighing scale is a sleek addition to any bathroom, designed by Omron to give accurate reading. You have to be very still when stood upon it or the reading comes up as an error, any slight swaying and you can be two stones heavier as I found out, but I soon got the hang of using it. I do think the scale is on the expensive side though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice! 14 May 2014
By Basement Cat VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Midnight Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Firstly, these scales are very beautiful and certainly have made the rest of the bathroom look pretty shabby. I'm very pleased with them, as I weigh several pounds less on these than my old (lying) scales. They do feel very solid when you stand on them, and have a reassuringly expensive feel about them. They do seem to be accurate, but it is important to find a completely flat spot on the floor for them to work properly, as ridges caused by floorboards can change the reading by a few pounds. I have found that having an accurate set of scales has encouraged me to weigh myself regularly and are an incentive to try to lose more weight.

5.0 out of 5 stars These are good 12 May 2014
By buy-it-try-it VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Midnight Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I decided to lose some weight and being a geek, I needed some new scales to help me on my way.My old ones were the sort that if you get on and off a few times you can trick teh needle into going up or downa few pounds - pretty silly really but I kept doing it. These though, are sleek and black and give me the same result however many times I hop on and off. Easy as pie to setr up, then a single button to change from kg to lb or stones and lbs, and then just step on. Only trouble is, they seem to weigh a couple of pounds heavier than others...

5.0 out of 5 stars Decently priced, high quality scales 9 May 2014
By Picard TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Midnight Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It goes without saying that there is only so much you can pay for a set of scales before, curiously, the design adds to the cost. The functionality is so basic and unexciting, yet style takes control of substance.

If you're looking at Omron's HN289, then you're in the perfect ball park. Whilst leaning towards the top end of the scale for cost, you have the quality to match with brilliant construction, a clear display and excellent battery life. The device can measure weight in kilograms, stones or pounds, and will turn itself off when not being used. It's sensitive (but consistent) to any shift in weight, which is somewhat reassuring given that cheaper scales tend to give different readouts within seconds of stepping on and off them. And no, I didn't step off them to eat cake!

Withing's also make excellent scales, but you can expect to pay almost twice as much for their data functionality. This Omron on the other hand maintains the same quality, but does without gimmicks to just do its job.
