Accurate Weight Readings
Most users find that this scale weighs accurately. A number compared the weight readings from this scale to their other weight readings taken at doctors offices and other good weight scales. This scale was able to give comparatively close numbers.
The scale accuracy extends to both light and heavy users. At least two users who weighed in at the 450 to 500 lb range gave positive testimonials to the weight accuracy of the scale. On the lower end, our reviewer weighed 108 lbs on the scale, and this matched up with her weight measurements with other digital weight scales known for their accuracy. She also tested the scale by carrying an extra 6 lbs of weight, and the scale was able to detect the additional weight accurately.
The stated weight accuracy is plus or minus 1% of the users total weight in pounds (or +/- 1 lb of variation per 100 lbs in weight). This is pretty standard for consumer-grade bathroom scales.
Its weight limit is 550 lb or 250 kg. This is designed to be a high capacity scale that can provide weight readings for large sized people. That said, it works for bother heavy or light users. In the video above, it was able to accurately weigh the reviewer who weighed 108 pounds. There are lots of reviews from users with heavy weights who found that this scale measured accurately.
Wide Sturdy Platform
The platform size of 14.7 inches by 11.2 inches works for almost all users. The surface of the scale is made of sturdy high quality heavy plastic. It provides ample space to stand comfortably on the platform, and hold still for a second to get an accurate weight reading. For most users, the weighing in experience has been really comfortable and stable.
That said, everyone is different, so there are variations and exceptions in experience. One man with size 13 shoes said that he found it a little challenging to stand on the scale, while another at size 15 said he had no problems.
For some users, the sturdy high quality heavy plastic surface appears more reliable to step on than a tempered glass scale platform. This could be unfounded, but, there are sometimes fears of glass cracking under stress, and that the glass will get slippery when damp. Thats why some people prefer to go with this scale model, for the reason that it has a heavy-duty plastic platform.
Sound Can Be Turned On and Off
Users can turn on/off the speaking function of the scale and simply view the numbers on the display screen. To do this, simply turn the speaker switch located at the bottom of the scale.
For some users, this feature is helpful when sharing the scale with other family members who prefer not to hear their weight. Some also find that they are able to make progress in their weight loss journey and get to a point where they can look down and easily read off the digital display.
Huge Digital Display
The digital display is located at the topmost part of the scale for an easy visual as needed. Amongst talking bathroom scales like the My Weigh Phoenix or Taylor 7084, the digital display for this model is the largest. The digits are displayed in a generous height approximately 1.5 inches allowing users to view the reading by just simply looking downwards.
Unfortunately, the screen is not backlit so its best to use this in a well-lit room if youve turned the speaker off.
The My Weigh XL-550 Talking Bathroom Scale is perfect for anyone who has trouble reading the digital display. Whether you are heavy or have limited vision, this gadget can be a great accessory to any weight loss or health maintenance program.

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.
