This is by far the fanciest bathroom scale I have ever owned! For years, we have always used an old-fashioned scale. I thought it would be nice to get a digital scale to replace our very old scale.
You can weigh yourself quickly and easily by just turning the scale on and stepping on as you would with any scale. You can also enter your height etc and get more advanced readings by using the hand held portion as well.
The one thing that was a bit disconcerting to me is that the way this works is by sending low levels of electric current through your body! (Note the metal portions you stand on and the metal grips on the handle).
It is probably a very small and harmless bit of electricity... but there is a warning saying this scale should not be used by pregnant women. After I read that warning, I stopped using the scale for anything more than quick weight measurements (ie I stopped using the hand held part) except on rare occasion.
It is interesting to measure your muscle percentage, fat percentage etc... but not something that you need to do daily or even very often. I will still use this feature but not more often than once every few months.
