Review of 9 types of the best floor scales
Weight control is a mandatory procedure for every person who cares about the state of his body and health.
Modern floor scales can help with this, which can not only indicate the number of kilograms, but also conduct a comprehensive monitoring of key health indicators.
The best electronic floor scales
Salter 9059 SS3R suitable for those who want to purchase a reliable and durable device that can be installed in any room and on any surface.
Despite the obvious advantages, the model has a significant drawback, which the manufacturer himself warns about in the instructions – during weighing several times in a row, the numbers on the display may differ significantly.
To eliminate the error, it is necessary to calculate the average value of these indicators. It takes a lot of time, and the approximate result is not suitable for those who carefully monitor themselves.
- Guaranteed for 15 years.
- Durability – stainless steel allows you to keep the case in its original form even when stored in rooms with high humidity and low temperatures.

- There is no display backlight.
- The coating is cold, so weighing barefoot is uncomfortable.

The best mechanical floor scales
SUPRA BSS-4060RD differs from similar devices in high accuracy. A significant drawback can be called low discreteness – the device can withstand only 130 kg.
To use, you need to stand on the surface with your feet evenly on either side of the cells and stand still for 10-20 seconds, which can be difficult for people with impaired coordination, the elderly, children or animals.
Tilts of the body or uneven distribution of body weight on both feet can give incorrect data. It is also worth considering that the installation surface must be perfectly flat and solid – tile, parquet or metal.
On carpet and other soft surfaces, the arrow will go to the side by 2-3 kilograms.
The low price is due to the lack of a digital display and the fact that plastic is used as a finish, which is less resistant to external factors and can sag over time.

- The accuracy of the result depends on the correct position of the feet on the device.
- Long waiting time.
- Withstands relatively small loads, so it is not suitable for people with obesity.
- Deviations to a greater extent are possible when installing on a soft floor.
- The division window is too small, so it is difficult for a person with poor eyesight to see the result.
- There is no remote control unit.
