How to Select Bathroom Scales

2019-10-24

If you're in the market for a bathroom scale, then it's time to consider what's important. While we all want an accurate bathroom scale, they've come a long way from the basic scales. From tracking your fat and water content to giving you various ways to view your weight, it's important to think about what you want your scale to do for you. These are the general features that you can find in scales today.


Consider the Functionality

Obviously, you want a scale that works, but the functions matter a great deal to some users. First, consider the weight capacity. A standard scale can probably measure around 200-300 pounds, but what if you need to weigh someone heavier? Make sure that you know the maximum weight that's going to be needed and if the scale can measure that.

Second, look at what exactly it measures. Maybe you want to look at more than just your weight. If you're on a journey for fitness and overall health, then you may want to consider your body fat or water percentages. Some scales use a small electromagnetic current in order to tell you these numbers. This is a good option if you have fitness goals and are trying to lose fat, especially. One great feature that some scales have is the ability to track weight over time. You may want this if there are multiple people using your scale. If you like to track your weight without having to keep your own records, this may be important. 

Third, look at energy efficiency. If your scale is reasonably energy-efficient, then you won't have to change the battery very often. Most of them should shut off automatically.



Consider the Design

Although a bathroom scale isn't normally a decorative part of your home, there are some design elements that will affect how it's used. In addition to an accurate bathroom scale, you want one that will last and won't be an eyesore in the room. 

Look at the material for the scale. Many scales today are made from ultra-thin glass. They are fairly durable. However, depending on your design preference, a simple metal design may work better. The color also makes a difference. Most bathroom scales are fairly simple colors such as silver, clear, or black, as well as combinations of these. You can, however, find ones that have designs on them as well as other colors to match the aesthetic of the home. 

You may also want to look at the platform. The larger the platform, the easier that it will be to stand on. If you have people with mobility problems, then you may want to choose a scale that is larger. However, keep in mind that a larger platform will also take up more floor space. 

Finally, one design element that makes a difference is the backlit screen. If the scale is going to be in a darker area, then you may want a backlit screen that's easy to read despite the low light. 


Price and Maintenance

After doing a little shopping around, you probably know that it's possible to pay as much as you want for a bathroom scale. The good news is that price does make a difference, although you don't have to spend a bundle in order to get an accurate bathroom scale. Don't break the bank but avoiding any scales that are cheap and flimsy. Since a good bathroom scale can last for years, look at durability and functionality, and then consider how to fit them into your budget.

Finally, consider the maintenance of the scale. Most scales are not fussy and can be wiped down as you clean the bathroom. However, you should pay attention to any special care instructions that may come with the scale. Chances are, you probably don't want to spend a significant amount of time on scale maintenance, so avoid any scales that take a great deal of work to maintain. 


Putting it Together

Now that you have a good idea of what makes up a bathroom scale, you have the tools to make the right choice for your own. Some features matter more to some than others. However, look at these areas to narrow down your options and decide which one will work best for the home.
