Perfect for Americans (lbs) or Europeans (kgs),
This review is from: Beurer GS58 Driver's Dual Display Glass Bathroom Scale (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As I'm short sighted I normally have to put my glasses on and peer at the dial on scales, so the fact these scales have a very large display which remains visible after you step off, is a huge bonus. So far as I can tell they are accurate in their reading but you must use on a hard surface. One important warning, do not be misled into thinking the scales display your weight in stones and pounds digitally - it is only kilos or pounds. Yes, they do display the weight in stones on the dial around the edge but not really accurately - it's small enough to only be an approximation. I like these scales enough to keep them in my bathroom, delegating my older scales to a cupboard; but I'm disappointed I will have to resort to a calculator for the stones/pounds. Also they are far larger than my previous scales and in my small bathroom I have to place them sideways as the semi-circular top does stick out a lot!
I can't see the point of the alarm function whatsoever. Who wants or needs to be reminded to weigh themselves?
Extremely easy to set up, three batteries are included, insert them, step on and gasp, in admiration at how nice they look - or how much you weigh...
