Tesco Glass Digital Scale
Advantages: Good value, sturdy, easy to use, good value, long lasting.
Disadvantages: They won't record a weight over 150 kg / 330 lb / 23 stones. So they ar enot for everybody.
I bought these scales about three years ago and they are still going strong.
At £13 per set I'd say they were good value, as they are very accurate and consistent, yet cheaper than other sets of bathroom scales that are available on the market.
The dimensions of the actual scales are pretty standard. The depth is 3.5cm; height is 35cm; and the width is 31cm.
They are very simply to use, you just push the scales slightly with your foot and 0:0 will then appear. You then stand on the scales and your weight will be recorded after a few seconds.
You can get your weight in pounds, kg or stones and pounds and you can change the recording by switching a little plastic switch on the back.
The maximum weight the scales will take is: 150 kg / 330 lb / 23 stones. This is fine for most people, but if you're severely overweight then obviously they won't suffice and I am not sure what the scales do if you exceed the limit.
I usually weigh myself in stones and pounds and each quarter of a pound is shown. For example, if you weighed 9st4lb¼ - the quarter pound would be illustrated in the reading.
These scales take a small lithium coin battery and so far I have only had to replace the battery once. You can tell when the battery is on its way out because its hard to get the scales to read 0:0 - which is the marker you need before you stand on the scales to get your weight.
To change the battery you remove the battery protector, pop the old battery out and slip the new battery in. It is very easy to change and the batteries are also cheap easy to get hold of.
I think these digital scales are better than scales with a dial and they have lasted me a long time. If you decided to invest in some bathroom scales then these are great value and do the job well. Four stars.
