Make sure that you take a brief moment to stand steadily and not shift about, otherwise the scale will have difficulty providing an accurate reading. Once the scale has your weight reading, it will announce it in a clear and pleasant female voice. This voice has a good volume to it, and most users find it works just right.
Large Digital Display
If you or a family member who rather have the Phoenix bath scale operate in a silent manner, the voice can be switched off at any time. Whats great is that this bathroom scale comes with a large digital display (approx. 2.5 by 1 inches), so that you can get a reading of your weight easily without straining or hurting your eyes.
In our test of the scale, we found that it measured accurately and consistently within the +/- 1% of error specified. Going through reviews from other users, many have commented that they found the My Weigh Phoenix talking bathroom scale to be accurate in its readings. The weighing mechanism is powered internally by quality digital strain gauges.
This digital talking scale will also read your weight to the nearest 0.2 lb or 0.1 kg, and up to a high weight capacity of 330lb. This level of detail is great if you are on a weight loss program and want to monitor small fluctuations as they occur.
Sturdy Plastic Platform, But There Is A Contour Where You Step
The platform size of approximately 10.7? long by 13.3? wide is large. Some users like it because it has a plastic surface, rather than a glass surface which could be slippery. However, the plastic surface is rather smooth. What could worsen the situation is the contour and dip in the middle.
The platform has a contour that goes up in the middle of the platform and then dips down. This could make it easy for users to slip. The contour is great in that it provides guidance to blind or visually impaired individuals on where to step on the platform. But it does have a disadvantage to it because it dips.
A lot of customers seem OK with this, but at least one lady did complain about this design feature. If you are concerned about this, the My Weigh XL-550 is a great alternatives to consider. It has a nice flat platform, and works well for both light or heavy individuals, up to a capacity of 550 lb/ 250 kg.
All in, the My Weigh Phoenix talking bathroom scale is an accurate and easy to use scale. Whether you intend to use it solely as a digital talking scale, or as regular bathroom scale with a large digital display, you will likely enjoy using it. This is a great and fun piece of talking equipment that can help you and family members keep tabs on your weight and health.
