Not a repair question but I hope trying to figure out why is not too far
I recently bought a bathroom scale of recent design, the kind with a
clear platform and four legs, with the near legs each connected by a
3/8" siltver tube to the front legs, which are connected to the display
etc. AIUI, the sensors are in each of the 4 legs.
When I first get on the scale, 2, 3 lower numbers flash by as it
eventually (but quickly) gets to what it says is my weight.
But if I get off, wait for the display to go blank, and get on again, it
goes straight to my weight. How can it do it without those
intermediate steps? It seems like it has memorized the previous
weight, maybe so that it can give the same weight and make people happy
(unlike how unhappy I was with a previous scale with which I could gain
or lose 4 pounds in 30 seconds.)
OTOH, if I pick up something weighing a pound or two, it does give a
So the only question is, When the weight is the same, how does it get to
the original weight faster?
BTW, it shows weight to the 10th of the pound. I don't expect it to be
accurate to the 10th of a pound, but if it's precise, I can still use
that digit for comparisons.
