Bathroom Scales

Have you ever wondered about when or where bathroom scales originated? They are relatively modern, because even just a hundred years ago scales were far too large to fit into anyone's actual bathroom! The first coin operated scale was brought to the US from Germany in 1885, and within a few short years they were being mass-produced by the National Scale Company. These were still way too big, and weighing over 200 lbs to even be considered for home usage.

Fast forward to now!

Virtually everyone's house has at least one bathroom scale, and in just the last couple of years they have become a marvel for managing one's weight, and health. No longer just measuring weight alone, they now can determine body fat vs water vs good tissue weight. Incredible when you think how far they have come from the coin-operated scales of the last two centuries!

ScalesEtc.com offers a wide variety of digital scales, for various purposes within the home, and business. Their products are very well priced, and have a life-time warranty within the United States.
