It's hard to get too excited about them but they very clearly, accurately and comfortably tell me my weight. Which is basically what i'm after in a set of scales.
Certainly much better then the fancy digital body mass one I had before, which lasted just a few months.

I wanted simple scales that told me my weight. These scales don't even do that. They give a different reading every time, with a +- error of 1-2 pounds. They have to be reset to zero every time and the slightest tap on the pad will move the dial needle to a new position. If you want to get a gestimate of a sack of potatoes and they're the only scales around - fine, but if you are watching your weight and each pound counts, forget it. These scales are an utter waste of money.
