Controlling your weight is important not only to enjoy yourself in the mirror but also to be healthy. Modern models of counters are distinguished by their accuracy, rich functionality, and stylish design. Some modifications are equipped with an impressive built-in filling, which allows you to control other parameters, particularly the amount of fat and muscle mass, water level, and connective tissue.
The main points to consider when choosing weighing scales, or counters, are the following:
Let's take a closer look at each point.
When choosing electronic counters, it is essential to clarify their measurement system. Some Western-made models show results in pounds and not in the familiar kilograms and grams. Therefore, before buying a scale, make sure that it has a metric system of measurements.
Accuracy. Each measuring device has its measurement accuracy. Therefore, when choosing floor scales, pay attention to their manufacturer's declared error. So, cheap mechanical products have a large error, up to 0.5 –1 kg. More expensive electronic counters have an error of 100 – 300 grams. That is, if you want to know your weight with an accuracy of grams, it is better to choose more expensive models with the smallest error.
Memory. This function is designed for weighing several people (from 2 to 10). It allows the device to compare the current weight of a family member with the previous one. Some models can even recognize the user automatically.
Material. Metallic counters last much longer than those made of plastic. Even if it is the strongest and most reliable plastic, the item made of such material can deform over time. But the plastic is adequate for its price. There are scales with wooden cases, but their price is quite high. As for the glass ones, they are aesthetically beautiful, but they need to be handled with extreme caution.
Display. Many models are equipped with a large display with large numbers. However, some devices have a small screen. Therefore, if you have poor eyesight, choose a model with a large digital display. There are also counters equipped with additional wireless monitors. Such a monitor is convenient because it can be easily installed at any height.
Useful tips. To ensure that the device shows your weight accurately and correctly, stand upright on it without bending over. Do not move or shift from foot to foot, stand firmly, as the scale is very susceptible to vibrations and can distort the correctness of your weight.
Make sure to place it on an even surface when weighing. If you have an expensive model with mechanisms that allow it to be levelled on an uneven floor (see the Stability section), then an even floor is not required at all.
