Comes with battery also- which is a bonus!
on 16 January 2014
The package arrived wrapped in black plastic, the box was very wet and soggy - that would have been down to the postal service, weather and NOT the seller. I was pleased to discover that the item inside the box was wrapped extremely well in bubble wrap, and therefore undamaged by the wet box. The item is exactly as described, and even comes with a new battery, which is an unexpected bonus. It is indeed of a very 'slim' design, so it is very light in weight.
I bought this item as my previous electronic scales stopped working, and I hadn't weighed myself in months. I am of slim build, but I need scales to keep on track so I don't gain too much weight. When I first weighed myself on the Sentik Scale, I was horrified to see that I weighed 12lbs more than I thought I did! It was a shock, as I haven't gained that much weight in years. So I moved the scales to a different part of the room (tiled floor), and was surprised to see that I had instantly 'lost' 5lbs. Perplexed, kept re-weighing myself in different areas of the room. I lost and regained between 1-8lbs constantly. Now, I know that floors can be uneven, but even with my previous scales, my weight would only 'fluctuate' between 1-3lbs depending on where I placed the scales. Maybe I should dig out my spirit level... I'd be interested to know if anyone else has had the same issues.
I'm not going to return the item, as I can still keep track of my impending weight loss by weighing myself in the exact same spot every day. I will just have to make sure I know exactly where that exact spot is each time. I will obviously be picking the spot that makes me weigh the least ;)
