Tesco Glass Digital Scale
Advantages: Nice and neat
Disadvantages: None at all for me
When I was planning my wedding last year I decided that I needed to loose a bit of weight before hand, I managed to do it through counting calories, going to the gym and using my weighted hula hoop and various other things I have at home. I monitored my weight mainly by going on my Wii Fit each day as this showed me even slight changes in my weight, however I decided that I would like a pair of scales that I could use to weigh myself on if I didn't want to be bothered with getting the Wii out. I decided that digital scales would be better for me and had a hunt around for some which were reasonably priced, I came across Tesco Glass Digital Scales, they were ideal for what I wanted, digital, not to large and bulky and quite a plain modern design that would go in any room I decided to keep them in.
I actually ordered my Glass Digital scales online as my local Tesco did not sell them. When the scales first arrived I was particularly pleased with the design of them, they are quite minimalist to a certain extent, the main part of the scales is just plain, but tough glass, it has a silver circle in each corner joined together with a thick silver wire, I am assuming these are the sensors which measure your weight as you stand on the scales.
There is a silver oval at the top of the scales which contains the digital display screen. The digital screen itself isn't massive, however the numbers are of a reasonable size and you can easily read your weight whilst standing on the scales, the display is an ideal size as it was not over the top so that it detracted away from the design of the scales yet it wasn't too small, I could just about read it without my contact lenses in which is handy. That is basically it for the appearance of the Tesco Glass Digital Scales, they really are quite plain, but personally I like this about them as it means I can have them in the bathroom or bedroom and they do not look out of place, the glass and silver colouring means that they do not stand out in a room and can just be stood discreetly in a corner.
For me another ideal feature of the scales was the size, again I didn't want anything too massive or bulky, we only have a small bathroom so if they are in there anything too big is going to get in the way, and again out bedroom is an ok size but I don't want a massive bulky set of scales sat in the corner. The actual measurements of the Tesco Glass Digital Scales are depth 3.5cm, height 35cm and width 31cm, I had a look at some of the reviews about this product on the Tesco website where I ordered it from and some people had commented how the scales were a bit on the small size, however I have to disagree, whilst they are not the largest set of scales for me the size of these is ideal, they are plenty big enough for me to stand on and my husband on occasions when he decides to weigh himself, after all you only stand on them, there's no need for them to be huge. Despite the thickness of the scales and the smaller size of them they are very strong and sturdy, they do not feel flimsy when you stand on them and the glass which they are made of is of a reasonable thickness, due to the low price of the scales I did wonder about how strong they would be and whether they would feel flimsy and unstable when you stand on them, however this is not the case, I have tried mine on different surfaces and every time I step on them they feel strong and stable beneath my feet.
As with any product like this there is a weight limit with them and for Tesco Glass Digital Scales the weight limit is 23 stone or 150kg. The scales are run on batteries and actually come with some included so you can use the scales straight away. You can view your weight in stones, pounds or kilograms whatever you prefer. Since having my scales they have had quite a lot of use, they have worn extremely well and still look as good as new. Personally I would say that these scales are pretty accurate, when I weigh myself on these scales and then on my Wii my weight is the same, some scales I have tried in the past have not been overly accurate and my weight has actually varied depending on what room I was using them in, with these scales the weight is consistent and accurate, I could happily weigh myself on these and know that the result it gave me was going to be pretty much correct.
As I have mentioned I got my Glass Digital Scales from Tesco, ordering them online, they cost me just £11.99, I thought this was excellent value for money, I could have gone for a similar product that was a lot more expensive but did more or less the same thing, however I wasn't prepared to pay out a massive amount of money for a set of scales, for me the main thing was they would weigh me and allow me to keep an eye on my weight loss before my wedding, these certainly did that and worked perfectly and were accurate despite the low price. In my opinion these are well worth the money,
I would definitely recommend the Tesco Glass Digital Scales, if you are looking or a nice simple easy to use set of scales that do not do anything fancy but just weigh you then these are ideal. I have found mine to be very reliable and I particularly like the design of them, the have a stylish look about them and blend in nicely to any room. They are an ideal size, not too bulky or large again meaning they are ideal if your rooms are a bit on the small side. For me the main attraction was the look of them but mainly the price at £11.99 they are extremely good value for money, when I was looking around for a set of scales I found several products which were basically the same, and were a lot more expensive. The scales are very accurate and the display screen is very clear to read. For me there are no disadvantages for this product and I would recommend these to anyone.
Summary: Nice accurate scales from Tesco
