Weight and balance

Today, I brought home another one of those lucky finds from the give-away box at the magazine. This time it is a Gamma Bath Scale by Soehnle.

I just took it out of the box, and it looks amazing in my bathroom, especially now that it is sitting next to the crappy white health-o-meter I had been using.

I'm totally digging the "sleek design" and "extra large 1.1" LCD display," but I'm a little nervous about the "attractive safety glass surface." It says it handles up to 330 lbs, so it must be extremely secure... but, something about stepping on glass just seems wrong to me. I feel like I am going to break it. And the glass is raised up by a silver circle in the middle. It's not even attached on the sides.

Another thing that is strange, is that the glass has a big orange warning sticker on it that says "Careful: Slippery when wet!" Shouldn't they have considered the fact that it is a "bath scale," and that there is a good chance that it will get wet, when designing the thing?

I'm sure I'll end up loving this fancy scale in the end, but I can guarantee it will never be as good as the shower head! (see "favorite posts": It Gives Good Head)
