Part of any responsible weight loss or fitness program should involve picking out an accurate scale to monitor results. This model from Taylor guarantees precise weight readings and runs on a lithium battery--which is not likely to die or weaken during the lifetime of the scale. The scale’s attractive tempered-glass top mounts on an industrial-style chrome base, and measures 12-3/4 inches across, offering a spacious platform to stand on. The scale turns on with a quick step onto the glass platform. A large 1-inch LCD display makes it easy to see readings without bending down. Weight readings lock and display for 5 seconds before the unit shuts off to conserve battery power. The scale holds up to 400 pounds, and is covered by Taylor under a 5 year warranty.
