I'd like to introduce to you the Coosh CBS002A Precision Digital Bathroom Scale. There's so much more to this scale than just giving you your weight.
The 6mm tempered glass combined with silver and black accent colors give the scale a sleek, clean appearance. Even though the tempered glass is sturdy, there is an illusion of it being delicate just because you can see through to the floor. No worries though. This scale can hold up to 330lb of weight. It has .02lb precision. There are overload and battery indicators.
Powered by a 3V Lithium Battery CR2032 that is included. (They are fairly inexpensive to replace this type of battery. Much cheaper than AA/AAA)
If you are looking to get your weight only, it's as simple as stepping on and voila, there's your weight. It shows to the tenth degree on the digital readout (ie. 150.0).
This is NOT just a simple step-on and get your weight type scale. There's so much more.
Not only is the readout digital but it is touch capable as well. It offers measurement of:
- Fat percentage
Following the instructions the first time, as you will need to do, you press Set and enter the information for each person. (gender, height, age) Each person can have their own code, and you can have up to 12 stored into memory. I already have myself and hubby entered.
If you want the health measurements, it is as simple as hitting Set, moving the up/down arrows to your saved profile, wait for it to accept and you step on. (making sure your shoes are off and bare feet are touching the metal plates) As it gives you the info, it will cycle through the numbers a few times. I keep a pen and paper handy when I'm doing this so I can write it down as I go. If you don't want to write down as you are standing on it, or have poor eyesight and need to get closer, you can go back in to recall the test record for each profile.
Needless to say, I don't understand the science in how stepping on metal plates can measure all of that stuff but I am impressed. This is also a wakeup call, as my numbers are not looking good and I need to step-up my game!
I don't know why Coosh doesn't sell this product up a little more in the description. The fact that it is touch screen and that it gives all of your health measurements are huge selling points. Not to mention a lovely surprise to me, as I thought I was getting a basic bathroom scale. I could not be more pleased.
