Info: Scale with Easy Remote Display Operation; Model BMI150R
This large capacity scale (which is suitable for users up to 330 lbs or 150 kg) has several useful features for those watching their weight or those who may have trouble seeing down to their feet -- including pregnant women. It measures not only weight, of course (in increments of 0.2 lbs or 0.1 kg), but can also calculate one's BMI after you've entering the user's height, and do so for up to 10 users.
This scale has a large platform (13 inches long and across) to stand on, but is slim enough to tuck away easily. It's very easy to use (with tap-on technology that allows you to start it with your foot, and it has an auto-shutoff feature), and holds readings, if you want to read them there at the base when you step off the scale. Its display can even be read right at eye level, since the screen is detachable, and can be wall mounted* (it communicates with the scale via infrared technology), where it can also be used to display the time and date.
People often tend to assume that weight gain is a bad thing, and that weight loss is a good thing, but it's not so simple, since one's height another factor -- taller people will have a higher healthy weight than shorter people, so it cannot be determined by weight alone whether one is in a healthy range or not. Your body mass index (BMI) is a percentage value derived from both your height and weight, and while you can calculate it on your own, this Escali scale does it for you -- no need to fiddle with a calculator or pencils and paper.
* The Infrared Remote Receiver is removable and can be mounted on the wall like a clock (which it doubles as) for easy reading (just by hanging it on two screws, 40 mm apart; a set of screws and drywall anchors is included). (Just ensure that there is an unobstructed line of site between the sending point on the scale and the infrared receiving point before mounting; instructions are included in the product manual.)
The scale and its display use 4 AAA and 2 lithium batteries between them.
Dimensions: 13.5 x 13 x 1 inches (34 x 33 x 3 cm)
