The thick glass and sturdy mounting give a quality feel to the scales. The LCD panel is large, clear and easy to read. Inputting height, age and gender info is pretty straight forward. Upon weighing yourself, the unit will in addition display your BMI, body fat (% and actual weight), fitness level (not sure about this one!) and % body water.
I know when researching other units people had commented that there was never enough time to write down the stream of information displayed. Just for info, once these scales have settled on your weight, you can jump off and grab a pen and paper and it will still go through the cycle of displaying the data for each of the indicators.
I am very impressed with this product, especially as the Amazon price made it an absolute bargain.
