I will always have to work out and always have to watch what I eat. I have had a gym membership at a gym since I was 16 years old, and although I go through periods where I don't go as much, I have never cancelled it. Now that I don't go to work all day, I have been going to the gym 4 or 5 times a week. I am trying to eat better and lose weight before my husband and I go on a cruise in January. I weigh myself every few days (even though some say once a week) and have used a digital scale for the past several years.
The bathroom scale that I had you had to bend down and touch the number of your "user profile". The scale would then display how much weight you had gained or lost since the last time you were on the scale. I used this feature maybe one time, and then just used it as a normal scale that you would step on. I couldn't be bothered to bend down and touch my number.
I was excited when I was asked to review the EatSmart Precision Tracker Digital Bathroom Scale. When I received the scale, I immediately took it out of the box and noticed how nice and sleek it looked and knew it would be OK to leave out in the bathroom.
The scale came with the (4) AAA batteries needed, and I put those in to set it up and to have it auto calibrate. Thinking it would be a pain to program my user profile, I used it for a few days before I actually opened the manual to read the instructions on how to set it up properly. If I would have read it and realized it would take less than a minute to set up my user profile, I would have done it that first day.
Since I have had the EatSmart scale, one of my favorite things about it is that you don't have to "toe tap" it first and wait for the scale to turn on before stepping on. All you do is step directly on it, and within seconds it displays your weight. This makes it not only convenient, but easy to use. My old scale you had to "toe tap" it, wait for the display to clear to 0, and then step on it. I was never able to weigh my daughter on it because she didn't grasp the whole tap first, then wait, then step on concept. With this scale, I have been able to have her step right on and see how much she weighs.
I also LOVE the tracking mode. All you do is hit "set", use the arrows to select the user you are programming, and then step on. It is that easy! This scale then has the software to recognize the user based on profiles with +/-6.6 pounds. The 2nd time I stepped on the scale, it displayed my current weight, then the second display shows how much I have lost or gained since my last time stepping on it. It displays the loss/gain in pounds and in percentages. The third time I stepped on the scale, it displayed my current weight, then the second display showed the difference in pounds and percentages since my last weigh in, and the third display displayed how much I had lost/gained overall since I had first programmed the scale. Now that I have stepped on the scale 3 times, I will get these three displays every time I step on it. This is perfect to help me achieve my weight-loss goals!!
This shows the three display modes each time you step on the scale (current, difference from last time, overall difference). The top number is pounds and the bottom number is percentages.
Not only is this scale sleek and easy to use, but it is accurate too. The weight that was displayed at my house was consistent with my weight at a doctors appointment a few days ago. The digital display is bright and clear and easy to see while you are standing on it.
The EatSmart Precision Tracker Digital Bathroom Scale is available at Amazon.com. At the time of this review, it was available for the sale price of $44.95. (Original list price is $99.95.) This price is a bit higher than my last one, but considering the quality is much better, I feel it is worth the extra bit of cost.
How would this scale help you with your weight loss goals?
