My first reaction to this bathroom scale is that, wow, it really looks so nice! I have the silver version, and I love the geometric design – very modern and sleek! It is also amazingly thin, which is great so that if you need to store it on its side, it takes up very little room. Beyond how it looks, of course the really important thing is how the scale works! Straight out of the box, it is really easy to get this working – all I had to do was install the included AA batteries and place it on a flat surface! I just tap my foot on the scale to turn it on and get it to zero out, then step on for a few seconds until it gives a weight readout.
It is so cool that this scale remembers your weight and can separately remember the weight history of up to 8 different people! I was a bit confused at first as to how it would know which reading is for which person, but it’s actually quite simple. It looks for a past recorded weight that is within 2 kg (about 4.4 lbs) of the new weight and assumes that this must be the same person. If there are two people in the family that are close in weight, you can just tap the display to have it start a new record (or if both records already exist, it will just ask the user to choose which profile to use). Beyond keeping the records, this scale actually can “tell” me quickly whether I’ve gained or lost weight. When I step on, if my new weight is higher, the display will be red, and if it is lower, the display turns green. It’s nice that I don’t even specifically need to remember my previous weight value to know if I’ve gained or lost. I’m hoping that having this will help give me a bit of extra motivation to work towards more “green” days and fewer “red”! (I took the liberty of blanking out the actual weight measurement in my red photo!)
The scale itself is very lightweight as well, so it is really easy to move around the house as needed. As a mom of two small children, I really like that they can use this as well. We have had other bathroom scales for which their weight (currently in the 30-40 lb range) was not enough to activate the scale, but this one works beautifully for them as well!

I’m very glad that I was able to receive this as a sample in order to evaluate and provide my honest review.
