Conair Corporation is a United States corporation which sells appliances, personal care products, and health and beauty products for both professionals and consumers. It was founded in 1959 and has since expanded to include over ten product divisions. **This **electronic scale will weigh up to 330 pounds (150 kilograms), plus measures body fat via bio-impedance technology. In other words, when the user stands barefoot on the two transmitters, a safe, low-level electrical current is sent through the body. The current flows through muscle and fat at different speeds. The total speed is calculated along with the user’s age, height, and gender to produce a percentage of body fat. Up to ten different users can program in their personal data on this scale. With single load cell technology and precision strain gauges, the scale accurately weighs in 0.2-pound (0.1-kilogram) increments. Very lightweight and slim in profile, the scale is constructed of sturdy, impact-resistant plastic, and measures 12-1/2 by 12 by 1-3/4 inches. A lifetime 3-volt lithium battery is included. Conair covers the scale with a ten-year warranty. (Ann Bieri on Amazon.com)**Customers **who have had this scale, have never had any problems with it. Mechanically it is as good as when they purchased it.
You also can program various things into it - ie 2 users, this scale is well worth it. We have found the weights consistant - they dont very if you step on the scale repeatedly unlike non-digital scales. It is a good choice to get.
