What Is It
When you need to do precise measurements, you may be surprised to find that not all scales can get as precise you need them to. Depending on what scale you have, it may only be able to weigh in increments of 0.2 pounds or 0.02 gram increments. For when you’re weighing smaller items or require a very precise measurement, a precise scale such as the Smart Weigh Digital Pro Pocket Scale was designed for you. It can weigh up to 500 grams in 0.01 gram increments.
Perfect for multiple uses around your household, this scale can be used for measuring mailing, jewelry, coin, and cooking needs. It also can double as a postage scale to ensure that you always have the proper amount of postage when sending your letters. The PCS function will give you an accurate count while the HOLD function will lock the weight reading. Of course, the scale has a TARE function that allows you to avoid including the container for your items in the final weight reading.
The front of the scale features a bright LCD screen with a blue backlight. It displays readings in g, OZ, OZT, dwt, GN, and CT.
This precise measuring scale requires 2 AAA batteries which are included to make it easy for you. It has an automatic 2-minute shut off that will keep you from accidentally draining the batteries.
The scale works really well. I already have another scale that weighs in the same increments, and the scales matched up with one another. It measures in even more measurement options than my prior scale does, and it’s really to use. The instruction manual (which is included) explains everything very well, but the basic idea is that you just have to use the On/Off button and use the other buttons to decide how you’re weighing as well as what measurements you’d like the results to be shown in. It’s super easy to use, and after turning it on, you’ll be taking measurements within seconds.
I really love that your Smart Weigh Digital Scale comes with multiple protective plastic snap-on cases – that also double as trays if need be. There’s a plastic case that goes around the base to protect it, and there’s another case that goes over the weighing platform. Both of these cases need to be removed in order to use the scale, but once you remove them, you can use them as trays to hold whatever you’re hoping to weigh in one place. The covers snap-on really easily and snap-off just as easily.
The blue LED screen is really simple to read – as long as you’re looking at it straight-on. If you have a need for privacy, this can be a great feature. However, if you’re looking at the scale from an angle or from the opposing side, it’s completely impossible to read the LED screen; all of the numbers go completely invisible. It’s really neat, and it’s not an issue as long as you’re looking at the scale straight-on, but if you and a partner were planning on using it while one sits next to the other, for some odd reason, one of the people will probably not be able to read the screen.
The scale is extremely simple to use. The four buttons make it intuitive to use, and you’ll understand exactly how to control this scale within minutes of opening the box. The read-out makes it easy to view the results, and the protective cases that also come with the scale can double as measuring trays when weighing.
The backlit LCD read-out can’t be read from an angle; you’ll need to be viewing it head-on.
If you regularly need to weigh items that are very small and require precise measurement, this scale could be perfect for you. It’s not as important to have if you don’t need very precise measurement, but for those precise jobs, this works really well.
The Smart Weigh Digital Pro Pocket Scale with Back-Lit LCD display is available for purchase right on Amazon.
