      good all round scales and long lasting

      We have had our Weight Watchers LCD Precision Electronic Scales now for almost one year. Well, when I say 'we', I specifcally mean my other half. She has been trying to lose a few stones now for years and she is now going to WeighWatchers with her friends every week and so she has decided to invest in these Weight Watchers LCD Precision Electronic Scales as they came highly recommended.

      They cost £23 from Ebay and we had to pay another five pounds for delivery. My other half swears by them and I have to say I do weigh myself on them and they are scarily accurate. What we particularly like about these scales is the fact that not only do they weigh your body fat but they are also designed to calculate your BMI and your water levels - I have never personally felt the need to know this but my other half says that she bloats up at the end of the month and she needs to be aware that tis is in fact water which is making her gain weight and not the fact that she has eaten too many profiteroles!!

      They do have great state of the art technology and I really do like the 33mm LCD display on the front which allows me to see all of the readings very clearly without having to wear my glasses. They also come with a fantastic one year gurantee. They weigh up to twenty three stones maximum weight and you can see your display in either stones or kilos, whatever is best for you and whatever you prefer - we prefer the old fashioned stones in our house!

      They are very lightweight and they do look stylish as they are silver plastic in colour and as they are fairly neutral they woudl probably match the decor in most people's bathrooms. I was pleased that the batteries were inlcuded with these Weight Watchers LCD Precision Electronic Scales
      When I opened the box - as usually you have to go out and buy those seperately! They are very accurate and the GP says they are a great brand as I told him which ones we are now using.

      Great product, accurate and stylish and not too expensive and highly recommended by us both.

      Fantastic scale i would happly spend my money on

      In my never ending search to find an accurate and reliable set of scale I have so far stuck to trying the cheaper scales on the market, but none of them have given me the quality and reliability I need when dieting. I have therefore decided to invest in a more expensive set of scales in the hope I wont be just throwing money down the drain.

      Seeing as accuracy and precision are the main features I am after I was drawn towards Weight Watchers Precision Scales, which claim to be accurate to 100g, perfect 

      The Weight Watchers Precision Scales are considered a 'designer' product in the world of weighing scales. They consist of a silvery grey, smooth metal square, with a large light blue LCD screen. On the bottom of the scales there is a switch that allows you to switch between stones, pounds and kilograms depending on which you prefer. So, overall the scales look very slick and modern, perfect in any bathroom.

      The scales are very simple to use, just tap the top of the scales to turn them on, then wait a few seconds and step on and wait for the scales to weigh you. When I first stepped onto the scales I discovered one tiny downside, the metal makes them very cold, bit of a wakeup call first thing in the morning. However, this was the only negative I could find with the scales. The LCD screen was brilliant, gave you a nice bold, clear weighing that was easy to read first thing in the morning. I have also found the scales extremely accurate, I now worry that wearing any sort of clothing will make a difference. The scales give me consistently sensible readings that match weighing from my doctor. They are also fantastic when dieting as they tell you every little bit you lose to help motivate you to continue until you get to your ideal weight.

      The scales cost about £40.00 making them quite expensive. However they come with 15 years guarantee and batteries are included. I would consider them worth the cost, as the accuracy and reliability you get is fantastic. I would definitely buy them again and I highly recommend them.

        Weight Watchers LCD Precision Electronic Scales

        The only thing about dieting that really bothers me is getting on the weighing scales and seeing how much you weigh, then hoping that every time you do your weekly weigh in that you have lost something. Its easy to blame the scales, as being inaccurate if you haven't lost as much as you hoped, but with the weight watchers LCD Precision Electronic Scales there is no excuses. What you see is what you are, they are extremely accurate.
        They come in a nice Silver Plastic and are light weight and easy to use. The little booklet explains how to use your scales and they weigh body fat and body water too. They weigh up to 23 stones which is 150kg and the batteries are included so you don't have to fiddle about when you get them, just read the instruction manual and get on the scales.
        You can set the memory and then you can see what weight you were the last time you got on the scales and see what you have lost.

        I really like them as they match in my bathroom and are easy to use. I'm not right keen to get on them though with others watching as I am very conscious of my weight, but things are going good enough for me to have bought myself a set of these scales which cost me £22 .49 at Tesco's.
        Its always best to weigh yourself on a a flat surface sometimes on the carpet or mat is not flat and you will not get an accurate reading.
        I like to use my scales once a week to see how my progress is coming on and I am still sticking to my diet and feeling positive about it. So, far so good.
        The display window is clear to read and you can chose whether you want to be weighed in stones, pounds or kilogrammes.
        I prefer stones as I am older and know where I am with them, kilogrammes still muddle me up, I even go into buthchers shops asking for a pound of sausages, but thats my generation.

        If your looking for a set of weighing scales then you will be pleased with these, I know other sets can be bought a lot cheaper but they only weigh body weight and I like the idea of being able to know my BMI and body water as this fluctuates during the month for women.
        Its good to see what is happening to the body and also getting accurate readings on your weight.
        I would recommend this product to you.
        Have fun x

          Thanks For Reading.

          These Designer Precision Electronic Scales from Weight Watchers measure your body weight in stones, kilograms, or pounds (which can be set by a switch under the scales.)

          When I think of designer items, I don't normally think of electric weighing scales, but in this case I have to say that this item looks fantastic. With its two smooth metal runners running parallel to one and other, the large glass platform, titanium finish, and dazzling (very easy to read) illuminated blue display (ideal for those who may struggle to see smaller, unlit, or analogue displays.)

          I've used a number of electric scales in the past and I've always found that they tend to be relativity slow in operation or tend to change their minds often about how much you weigh. Thankfully that doesn't happen with these Weight Watchers scales. Simply press down on the glass to switch them on, step on and wait a few seconds.

          They offer a stylish and accurate method of keeping up with your weight. They have the ability to measure in 100g increments to allow you to see even the smallest change. This is a handily feature as it will show those on a diet that they are losing weight (even in very small amounts) unlike it's analogue counterparts which never seem to change. At least this way it may offer a little boost to will power for those on a diet.

          Build quality is excellent and they are also backed up by a 15 year guarantee, so I doubt that these scales will have to be replaced for a very long time. Batteries are included and are off the AAA (x3) kind. They are normally cheap to buy, and are very common to find. But hopefully they won't needed replaced too often.

          One thing I have noticed is that the glass is rather cold, and standing on it first thing in the morning could be a shock to your system - so maybe socks would be recommended.

          These scales may seem expensive at forty pounds (and I would tend to agree), but considering the quality both in terms of design and build, and the fact that it's makes weighing yourself seem less worrying, I would say that are worth the cost.

          This product proves how much difference can exist between common household goods that we use every day. It shows that if you pay a little extra for quality you really get a quality product. If your looking for a new set of bathroom scales, then look no further as these put other scales to shame.
