Floor-standing scales are used to monitor the dynamics of their own weight and assess nutritional status. At home, structures are also used for weighing children, bulky items, and animals. Such a device will be appreciated by those who like to travel, who know firsthand how airlines treat bulky and heavy luggage. Scales for the home are often bought by the fair sex, who are used to monitoring their physical condition from an early age.
The main criterion for choosing such devices is the accuracy indicator. And the electronic scales meet all the necessary requirements of the buyer. In addition to the unusual appearance, there is a separate product category on the market, which is equipped with a number of auxiliary functions. It is this feature that distinguishes electronic products from their mechanical counterparts.
Popular models that belong to the high-tech (medical) category may have the following functionality:
You should pay attention to the fact that expensive models are equipped with a function that allows you to memorize data and analyze it for each of the family members. Through a simple application, the device will independently recognize people and record the slightest changes. The best devices are very accurate, and the error rarely reaches 100 g.
Also, experts advise paying special attention to models that are able to carry out a comprehensive analysis based on the data obtained and recommend the optimal amount of calories consumed during the day, as well as make up a diet.
Easy to use and affordable devices. They are in high demand due to their load capacity and reliability. Over time, the spring that underlies the design will gradually stretch, leading to an increase in the error rate. However, if a person needs to know only the approximate parameters of something, then this option is considered the most profitable and, at the same time, inexpensive. They are characterized by maintainability, unlike electronic counterparts.
Floor products belong to the category of household appliances that are in great demand among modern consumers.In order not to make common mistakes when choosing a device, you should decide in advance on the selection criteria. Goal setting will also play an important role. It should be noted that the same scales can be used for children and adults.
For a newborn child (up to six months), it is recommended to use special children's products (horizontal type), which are equipped with all, without exception, medical institutions. It is noted that they have a minimum error rate.
|Accuracy of measurements||For those who pay special attention to their own weight, the slightest error can have adverse consequences. In this case, preference should be given to electronic devices. Children's models and expensive accessories will reduce the risk of error to a minimum. Mechanical products "lie" by 200-400 g, which is considered an acceptable indicator if the indicator is measured every few days. The cheapest scales have an error of 1 kg.|
|Maximum load||The criterion is important when large people will use the product. Conventional attachments can break due to significant stress, resulting in injury. Average units are capable of withstanding a 160-kilogram person (electrical) and 200 kg mechanical. In most cases, these indicators are more than enough. There is a separate product category on the market, which is designed for a weight of 300 kg.|
|Materials used||The greatest demand is for plastic products due to the budget price and the compact dimensions of the model itself. Manufacturers focus on the design and colors of household appliances, so the choice can be difficult. A wide assortment will not allow you to quickly decide on the models you like.
The steel platform will look stylish and modern. But it is unpleasant to become barefoot on a metal surface (otherwise the sensor will not work).
Able to amaze with a variety of glass structures. However, such material should be handled with extreme care. Steam makes the surface slippery and should not be used in the bathroom. The rubberized backing will not be superfluous.
Exotic models deserve special attention. A striking example is wood or stone inserts. They are expensive, but they look amazing.
Power (for electronic devices)
|Structures in most cases should stand on an absolutely flat surface. It is difficult to find ideal floors in the house, so popular models are equipped with a level adjustment function. Otherwise, you will have to spend a lot of time in order to find a flat surface in the room.
The consumption of conventional structures is minimal. The battery can last for several months of intensive use. However, diagnostic devices that are able to determine the proportion of bone tissue in a person will require regular replacement of the batteries, namely once a week.
When looking at electronic products in detail, there are many additional features that mechanical products do not have. However, each of the declared functions, which is so necessary in everyday life, in the opinion of most buyers, will be reflected in the cost of the product. Are some programs really necessary? Maybe you shouldn't overpay for something that is not absolutely necessary.
