Where to Buy
 

The Omega Ultra Slim Digital Bathroom Scale has a sleek and slim aluminum finish that users love. The thin platform is lightweight, yet wide at 12 by 12 inches. The Omega Ultra Slim Digital Bathroom Scale uses four "G" sensors to provide an instant readout without the need to tap the unit on first; however, some reviewers say shifting your weight while standing on the scale can alter the readout. The Omega Ultra Slim Digital Bathroom Scale is also sold as the Escali Sleek Bath Scale US180B This scale also features an extra-large, 3.5-inch backlit LED display for easy reading, but users who have difficulty reading their weight can step off the scale, thanks to a 10-second reading hold.

The Omega Ultra Slim Digital Bathroom Scale has a 400-pound capacity, calculated in 0.2-pound increments. Weight can also be displayed in kilograms. Most reviewers say the Omega Ultra Slim Digital Bathroom Scale is accurate and easy to use, although there are a few critics who say they've gotten inconsistent readings. If you're looking for a digital scale with a higher weight capacity, reviews suggest the MyWeigh Precision High Capacity Talking Scale XL-550 (Est. $45), which accommodates up to 550 pounds and announces readings aloud for users who have difficulty viewing a digital display.

The Omega Ultra Slim Digital Bathroom Scale isn't included in professional roundups at ConsumerReports.org or Good Housekeeping. However, it is listed as one of the best bathroom scales at Bestcovery.com, and we found more than 200 mostly positive comments from owners posting to Amazon.com.
