How to Choose a Personal Scale

Catalogue

With a personal scale, you can keep your ideal weight under control and get all the information you need to ensure a healthier lifestyle. Choose the one that will match your requirements and give you the information you want.

Scales have more uses than to help you lose weight. They can help give an overview of your body weight, vitality, health and lifestyle. Some types of personal scales also provide data such as muscle, fat and water percentages in your body.

Tips for Choosing a Personal Scale

  1. Consider how many people will use the scale and what the maximum load should be.
  2. For more users, you can get a scale with user-recognition that can store measured values.
  3. Consider the accuracy, which may vary in kilograms.
  4. Besides scales for measuring your body weight, there are also devices that measure BMI, muscle percentage and other values.
  5. The most advanced types can be synchronised with your smartphone.

Basic parameters

Load capacity

Each scale has a maximum load that determines the user's boundary weight. Some models offer a load capacity of up to 160kg. Before purchasing, consider whether other members of your household will be using the scale.

Accuracy

This is a very important parameter that defines any deviations of the measured values. Digital scales measure weight with a variety of sensors, including one in the middle of the device. They are usually accurate to 100g. The deviation can reach up to 2kg on mechanical personal scales.

Dimensions

You can between larger and more compact scales. For smaller spaces, it is better to find a small scale that will fit anywhere. Thin tempered glass scales are also very light, so they can be placesd under furniture or in storage spaces.

Manageability

Most digital scales offer simple (some even voice) controls and a number of automatic functions. They activate themselves after you step on, shut down after inactivity, and have a self-reset. Choose a scale that is easy to use and read.

Memory

Some scales can recognise up to 4 different people based on stored parameters (age, gender, height, etc.). This allows them to offer more accurate data and values from the last weighing.

Design

There are scales of varied design, with angular and round corners, in a wide variety of colours. Most often they are made of thin hardened glass, which is very durable and often so elegant, that the scale can become part of your interior design. Choose your scale according to your personal taste. Children's models boast striking and cheerful designs, but their load capacity is not as high as a normal scale.

Smartphone Sync

Diagnostic personal scales can also be connected to your smartphone via bluetooth or WiFi. Using a freely available application, you can immediately see the measured values and have the opportunity to save them if you want. Special applications for personal scales that use personal trainers, offer the ability to compile clear statistics to help you achieve your goal weight.
