Advantages: good price, nice design, accurate
Disadvantages: no extra features
I bought this electronic scale for my bathroom when I was living in the university accommodation. I needed an electronic scale to track my progress and weight occasionally and I found this scale on Amazon for around £25. The price was good and I really liked the size and the nice design of it. I used this scale for less than 1 year and when I moved out of the flat I gave it to my old flatmate with some other stuff that I didn't need any more. I was very pleased with it, as it was accurate and quite simple to use.
Salter is a well-known company in the business of measuring equipment manufacturing, such as kitchen and bathroom scales. The Salter 9028 model is a personal electronic bathroom scale and it's a useful item that should be in every bathroom. It comes in silver colour with a glass platform of 8 mm thickness. The design is simple but modern. The scale itself is sturdy and well-built and the maximum capacity according to the product specifications is 180 kg.
It's a simple digital model without functional extras for weight loss aid, such as excess fat, body water etc. The weight is displayed on a 50 mm LCD screen with 4 digits, in 0.1 kg increments. You can change the display options and switch the measurement units to pounds, stones or kg by using the settings button at the bottom. The numbers are large and clear on the screen with a light grey font, so they are easily readable when you are standing on the scale.
It runs on lithium CR2032 battery which is included on purchase. You can start using the scale as soon as you take it out from the packaging. You place the scale on the floor and weight yourself.
To get a steady reading you just have to step on the platform and stand still for a few seconds, until the measurement is confirmed. I haven't tested if it gives absolutely precise calculations by placing a standard weight on it and check if it gives the real measurement. The only check that I've performed was to weight myself before I leave from the gym and then when I arrive at home and see if I get the same three numbers on both scales. I did get the same weight measurement so it seemed to be pretty accurate.
The precision of the measurements is highly dependent on the stability of the scale unit and the supporting floor. Carpet feet are also included in the box. The plastic feet can be attached at the bottom to keep the scale steady if you want to place it on a carpet, aiming to prevent any inaccuracies due to instability. I think that it's better to place it on a hard floor and it's also suggested to leave the scale on a specific place in your bathroom and do not move it around. I had just placed mine on my flat bathroom floor so I didn't actually have to use the extra feet.
Overall the scale works as expected, it comes with 15 years guarantee included and measures the weight with accuracy. The electronic scale costs £ 29.99 at the official Salter page www.salterhouseware.com and it can also be found on amazon.co.uk from £ 19.75.
