This bamboo body scale is really nice. I like how it looks. It has the capability to weigh up to 400 pounds. The display is easy to read. It has a blue back light with a digital display on an LCD screen. There is plenty of room for my feet on it. The scale must be on a flat surface to get an accurate reading. It can display kg or pounds. There is a button on the bottom you press to select which measurement you want to use. I appears to be accurate, which kind of makes me sad and reminds me how badly I need to lose some weight. It uses 2 AAA batteries and they are included with the scale. I am getting a gym membership this week and this will be a nice tool it track my progress. Hopefully the gym helps me to get into shape because I would hate to throw this nice looking scale out my window for not showing weight loss. I received this item for free to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
