THis is a very nice scale! We tried a different brand before getting this one and we have not been disappointed by the Etekcity scale. When you step onto it the display lights up and gives you the weight and then turns off about ten seconds later. The day we received ours I had to go to the doctor so I weighed myself before leaving home and my weight was only .2 lbs different from the doctor's scale. I'd say that's pretty accurate! It does not save your weight from you previous weigh in but I actually prefer that. I can remember (or write it down) and it's just simpler to use without that feature to me. The scale itself is very nice to look at, sleek and modern. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase! I try to be very honest and thorough in my reviews, if this review was helpful to you please click yes, thank you!!!
