Weigh Yourself On This-MIRA Instant On Digital Scale Product Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


I've really been wanting to get a good scale that I could keep in the bathroom and weigh myself every morning after I get up. I didn't want a traditional scale, I wanted a digital scale but they were all so pricey. Lucky for me, I was given a digital scale from MIRA for free, in exchange for an honest review. I jumped at the opportunity.

What this scale looks like on the bottom. Hard to see, but there is a tiny button in the center part at the top that you can press to switch from pounds to kilos to stones.

How I Felt About This Product

Right after opening the box, I instantly fell in love with the design of the scale. It's different from any scale I've ever used. It's a sleek black and silver color that I love. It matches well with my bathroom decor, which is black and white.
I like that it comes with batteries so that you can use it as soon as you get it.
**A quick note**--I weighed myself, saw one weight and thought, "OMG, I gained weight!" (not a happy surprise) So, I stepped off and then stepped on one more time just to be sure and got a lighter weight. I was confused and scared that I had gotten a defective model. I picked it up and moved it to the side and decided I'd try new batteries later. The next day, my husband came in and told me the same thing about his weight. I told him I had new batteries, so we tried that. Nope, same thing! I was annoyed so I contacted the company and they explained to me very clearly, First, make sure that whenever you use it, place it on a perfectly flat surface (I did do this, by the way, so I knew this couldn't be the issue.) Secondly, the first weight you get when you step on it is your weight plus the weight of the scale. Step off and on again for your actual weight. Makes perfect sense!
 So, if you do purchase this beautiful scale, keep in mind that if you move it out of the way like I do, it must be recalibrated each time you put it in a new place. Step on, step off, step on. Sounds like a lot? It's really not a big deal, especially if you keep it out all the time. If you do keep it out at all times, then I guess you don't have to worry about recalibrating it, like I do. I really don't mind recalibrating it because it only takes a few seconds.

What else?
Yes the weighing is very reliable/accurate. My husband, son, and I have all used it.
 I also really like the large, very easy to read, pretty blue display. It's easy to read in all types of lighting, dim or bright. 
It turns on as soon as you step on it and turns off after a few mins, after you've had enough time to read your weight.

I'm really happy with my scale. 

As for shipping/packing---the scale arrived in one piece in a really quick time frame too. Very happy about that!
