The EatSmart Precision Plus Digital Bathroom Scale is a solid performer with ample functionality, proven accuracy and reliability in a sleek, attractive package. It's easy to use, with no tap-on required to calibrate the scale before use; a wide platform for ease of balancing; and a large, backlit display for readability. It also receives praise for its ability to perform well in high humidity, common in bathroom environments.
Near-flawless performance. Experts from the Good Housekeeping Research Institute applaud the EatSmart Precision Plus for its accuracy and consistency, and thousands of user reviewers agree; though, a minority of Amazon respondents claim their scales fluctuated in accuracy. EatSmart offers thorough customer service and contacts each reviewer leaving negative feedback to offer a free replacement. The majority of those reviewers come back to report that their new scales have been performing accurately for years.
No tap-on calibration necessary. The EatSmart Precision Plus Digital Bathroom Scale couldn't be simpler to use, according to both owner reviews and a professional roundup conducted by Good Housekeeping. There's no tap-on necessary to calibrate the scale before stepping on; it adjusts automatically when users simply step on the platform. The scale's large 4.3-inch backlit display offers easy readability, even in dim lighting conditions. In a brief write-up on the review blog Familylicious, one owner says, "With this scale I am able to see my weight regardless if I am wearing my glasses or not."
Capable of withstanding humidity. Editors of Good Housekeeping say the EatSmart Precision Plus is durable enough that it still performs accurately in conditions of high humidity, a common environment for bathroom scales. Users posting to Amazon and Walmart say their Precision Plus scales have lasted for years without sacrificing accuracy or reliability; one Amazon contributor writes, "Two years later, this scale is still incredibly accurate & going strong." The Precision Plus is backed by EatSmart's two-year guarantee.
Sleek, slim design attractive in any setting. Users praise the EatSmart Precision Plus' slim, sleek appearance, which they say fits in well with nearly any décor. Its platform is an extra-wide 15 inches for functional purposes, so it does take up a bit more floor real estate but can be stored vertically when not in use.
