I bought these scales thinking it was a good buy, but they stopped working in less than 3 months. I still wonder if they got wet inside somehow. Use in a dry area on a hard level surface
Weight changes constantly
Step on 55kg. Step forward slightly 64kg. Step back slightly 50kg. Hop off 0kg. Step on again 62kg. Step off 3kgs. Step on again 53kg. Move slightly 65kg. Don't work at all.
really not good
I bought this one and when I placed it in the floor it displayed 8 kg when it wasn't in use. I won't lie I don't need extra kilos I have enough to deal with. Although this number fluctuates a kg or 2 which is also weird extra phantom kg not really what I was looking to buy.
Simple and effective
I've purchased fancy digital scales for the past 8 years and I have been disappointed by all of them, my last one was a Omron and that had to be the worst set so far, a different weight everytime I stepped on it, so while I was at Kmart today I spied this little gem, it was unassuming and cheap.... I thought to myself "I used mechanical scales for years and never had an issue" so I picked one up and bought it home.
Why had it taken me so long to go back to what actually works, I don't know, but better late then never!
Steady and accurate
I bought these for $9 from k.mart and found them to be quite good, the weight does not change like some. i bought the homemaker digital ones for $19 to get a more accurate reading and they are terrible, they change so much no matter where you put them. as far as manual scales go i think these are as good as any.
A bit small, hard for bigger people
