Choosing a scale

6 Jul

Choosing a scale might sound like a silly thing to have to write a blog post about, but it’s not. There’s two reasons I went shopping for a new scale:

1. I wanted one with a digital display that showed fractions of a pound. If I expect to lose a pound or two a week, showing fractional pounds mattered.

2. I wanted batteries that were easy to find and to replace. My old scale required watch batteries that were expensive, hard to find and hard to replace. I wanted something with standard batteries, like a 9V.

Oh, and I wanted it to be cheap. I found this one at Wal-Mart, for $20:

Health-o-Meter SDR743DQ-01 Digital Scale, White

I’ve had it for more than a year. It’s simple, reliable and it’s been worth the twenty bucks. Mine says “Health-o-Meter” but I guess Sunbeam is the same thing.
