A Scale With Weight Loss Advice: Taylor 7209 Glass Digital Cal Max Scale
This is a good looking and reasonably priced scale. The neutral aspect of it's design allows it
to be used with practically any decor. I
am glad it does not have a voice function.
It weighs about a pound heavier than our current Taylor digital scale. That is weighing people not the weight of
the scale. The BMI feature is
interesting. Body Mass Index is one
popular method of identifying obesity.
You input your height, weight and activity level. This is supposed to identify your BMI. It than ascribes calories to maintain the
current weight. Oddly it suggested a
weight somewhat heavier than my current Taylor
scale but assigned me considerably more calories to maintain about 1.5 pounds
more than the older scale. I don't
intend to increase my calorie intake despite being given a get out of jail free
card by the scale software. The concept
seems good and anything that helps reduce caloric intake should be
encouraged. In my case, common sense
will overrule technology and I will NOT start eating more. BTW the photo makes
the deck of the scale look white, it is clear.
If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
