To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
So this is perfect for traveling. However, note that it's tough to actually stand on because it's so small. I have to turn it the long way and stand across the read-out. (I'm not a big person, only 5'4" and 125 lbs.) It also adds about a pound in the readout compared to my usual home-scale. Just weigh yourself on a regular scale before you travel. Also of note, this ONLY works on hard surfaces, as the instructions indicate. This is a very affordable solution for people who are concerned about weight while traveling.
This travel scale works well and compares almost perfectly with our two digital bathroom scales at home. Initially, we both found was hard to stand/balance on even tho my wife is under 100lbs and I am under 160. . We figured out that if you stand on it sideways and wait five seconds, it is a LOT easier to balance on and when you step off the weight is still showing just fine.
Love this scale. It is small, fits appropriately on my tile floor and is very consistent. The only thing I would warm people about is to be careful getting in the scale, because of the size, it tries to dump you
The scale is well made, light in weight, very clear to read. It is about the size of a tablet, and an attractive little package. I have found that it is not as accurate as I would like, always about 1 to 1.5 pounds off, but not a huge variance. It is ideal for a travel scale.
