Surpahs Outlook Precision Digital Bathroom Scale (review)

Disclosure: We received a product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Surpahs makes a digital body scale that comes in an elegant, flat black design, has a nice big LCD reading, and turns on automatically when you step on it.  My favorite thing about it is that it's pretty.  It just looks really nice, far better than the old clunky kind where you had to reset the dial to zero to get an accurate reading. But pretty without function would mean nothing, so I guess my equally favorite thing is that it is sturdy and performs just like you would expect.

I really like this built-in handle.

The Surpahs Outlook Precision Digital Bathroom Scale also gets big brownie points for having a handle built right in to the design.  That makes it super easy to carry around and/or move as needed.

Four AAA batteries power the scale, and I haven't had it long enough to know if that is a good or not so good thing.  Hubby thinks it's good because they're so easy to find (unlike the button batteries which pose more of a challenge to find for replacement). I'm wondering though how it will hold up in terms of longevity, or how long they will work before we have to put a new set in. I guess time will tell.

We moved the scale to a room with very bright sunlight pouring in,
and you could still read the LED display very easily.

One feature I thought was different than other scales is that the weight flashes for ten seconds and then it's gone.  I suppose that's long enough, but I wish it stayed put a bit longer.

One other thing that is unique is you can see the LED numbers even in the bright sunlight. I know that to be fact because we moved it to the big front room at peak sunlight, and even with the light shining on it you could easily read the weight being registered. That is not always the case with a digital reading, so I appreciated it with this scale.

The Surpahs Outlook Precision Digital Bathroom Scale is nice, and overall we're very happy to have it in our home.

Nice looking scale that would look even better in our bathroom! Love the display on this.

Masshole Mommy said...

My bathroom scale just broke (after many years) so this sounds like it would be a great replacement!

Kung Phoo said...

Once i start looking at the scale i can't stop, 10 seconds maybe too little..

mail4rosey said...

You can hop right back on if you need to see it again. That's what I do. :)

Parenting Patch said...

I prefer digital scales. We have a digital scale that links up to an app on our phones, which I love.

Kelly Hutchinson said...

I need a good bathroom scale. This looks like a very nice one.

Grandma Bonnie said...

Nice digital scale. I like the idea of being able to see it in bright light its not like that with my scale.

Kristi Maloney said...

Looks like a great scale. I like the sleek design and that you can read it even in the brighter light.

Annemarie Leblanc said...

Looks like a reliable scale, it's very sophisticated looking!

MikiHope said...

My scale is in the closet and I could sure use that LED lighting! Right now I have to turn the light on in order to see the number--on second thought----

Kim Croisant said...

Very nice and trending. The handle is a great benefit.

Gingermommy said...

this looks like it would be a great scale. Easy to read and use

Pam said...

Sounds like a great scale! I like that you can still see the LED lighting in bright sunlight.

alissa apel said...

That's a great review. That's something I've been using every day. I certainly like it when I see it go down.

mail4rosey said...

buwhahaha, you made me laugh. :)

Helene Bludman said...

Sounds like a good scale with a lot of nice features. I prefer digital scales and I like the LED lighting.

Elisebet F said...

That's a very nice looking scale. The scale I have looks really cheap and beat up.

Teresa Moody said...

I just got a new scale for my birthday. Its a digital scale and way better then the old fashion scales. i like your scale too!

A Merican Punjaban PI said...

This looks nice and I love the 10 second feature. My weight is very private and there is always someone trying to look.

Ann Jones said...

I hate weighing myself :) I have a scale under our bed, but I don't use it much. I am one of those people that will weigh themselves way too much if I allow myself, so I just wait until I go to the doctor twice a year.

Lady Lilith said...

Looks like a pretty nice scale. I like the sleek black color.

Holy Ghost Writer said...

The led is way better than the old spinner

Marielle Altenor said...

I sort of like the old fashion scales. We got a scale like this but white and it lies!!! No way I let myself get this heavy in 6 months!!! lol

mail4rosey said...

Hahahhaa, my scale can tell some stories too!! No way my pants are a little tight from weight gain over the winter. Nuh uh, nope. :)

Theresa Mahoney said...

My hubs is on a weight loss kick, and having a quality scale is a must in keeping him motivated. I like that this one has LED light up numbers. I hate it when you have to strain your eyes just to see your weight!

Alice Chase said...

We have a very similar scale and I love it. Although I have been considering putting it away for a few weeks to focus on how I feel and not the number on the scale. I am more than a number and I need to believe it. Just not sure I can actually follow through - I may be a scale addict. :)

I need a new bathroom scale, mine recently stopped working and it is not the batteries. I have been enjoying the vacation from it but need to get back to weighing in daily. I love the features of this scale so I will definiltey check it out.

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

This scale is really nice and I could see it fitting nicely with any bathroom decor.

Nikki said...

That is a really nice scale! Although, with all the Easter candy I ate, I am not sure I want a precise one right now! I want one that will lie to me a bit!

Liz Mays said...

I think my scale uses a 9 volt, and 4 AA's would be fine too. Anything but button batteries. I like that it's bright even in sunlight!

Pam said...

This looks like a great scale.I love the design and that it is digital. The numbers do look big and that is so important to some of us that have older eyes. LOL

Cheap Is The *New* Classy said...

I like that you can see that in the sunlight. Some of them wash out like that.

Payal Bansal said...

I loved the inbuilt hande.. it makes the scale so easier to carry. I broke my last one, after it slipped from my wet hands :/

Mary said...

Not sure I want to know at the moment but this is definitely something I SHOULD look into.

Felicia Franceschelli said...

I love the sleek design and look of the scale. I would look great in anything bathroom and is small enough to store in a closet in you are not using it. Thanks for the nice review.

Danielle @ We Have It All said...

Awesome, I need another scale. I like the look of that one too.

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

I don't own a scale. I honestly refuse to put a number on myself. I get weighed when I go to the doctors but otherwise I don't keep track of my weight. I do keep the focus on eating healthy and exercising. I know it's a weird mind thing for me.

☆Mama Ko☆ said...

Most scale todays are gone digital which is good though. I like the design on this one and the handle makes it so easy to carry around. I have three scale but Im afraid to step on it because it always tells me that i need to stop eating

Ashley Gill said...

I love the look of this scale. The number display is really nice. I'll keep this one in mind when I need to get a new scale!

Toni Patton said...

I need a new bathroom scale. I am going to have to check this brand out.

Maddi'sMommy said...

Digital scales are so much better than the traditional - mostly becuase I can't say "hmm, its off a few pounds" lol

Amanda Her said...

I like the handle on the scale. I'd like a new one too - this sounds like it'd be perfect.

Colette S said...

Looks like a nice one to have. I really want to find a good one for us myself.

And definitely better idea with the A batteries than the flat one!

And of course who wants to see their weight too long :) but yea it would be better if it stays a bit longer I suppose :)

Fabulous Perks said...

I love the design of this scale. It's perfect for the set we have in our bathroom. Thanks for sharing!

Aisha Kristine Chong said...

An awesome scale you have there - sleek and perfect design too!

Cynthia Landrie said...

What a great scale! I love that you can see the readout well when there is a lot of light! I think my daughter would love the design.

I like specifically the handle part. Sometimes having something easy to carry makes it efficient!
