MyWeigh has produced many of today's most technologically
advanced scales - from the ingenious TouchScale utilizing touch - screen
technology to the award-winning Axe2 with it's rotating protective-cover/tray.
It's no wonder they impress us with each new scale they produce and the new
PalmScale 7.0 is so impressive, you have to see it to believe!
Priced in between the PS5 & PS6, the new PS7 is being reputed as the 'most
advanced pocket-scale ever made' by many critics and after testing it,
we would have to agree. Upon receiving the scale, we were impressed first
off with the packaging: simple, clean & to the point. Once the box was opened,
we saw a scale unlike any we had ever seen before! The PS7s first distinct
feature is its rubberized protective exterior & chromed-out interior - It's
sleek, stylish, minimalist & just fun to look at - there is no other scale out
there with this sort of design, with the exception of the PS5 & PS6 having
Opening the scale & turning it on was fun: WOW! Another first in the scale
industry is the reverse-lit LCD display; this just knocked our socks off!
It´s a beautiful display unlike any other scale out there with easy-to-read
numbers and Weighmeter feature. Also, a pretty nifty feature is having a
'Quick User Guide' on the underside of the protective cover (just in case
you forget what a button is for).
Weighing on the scale was the fun part: we put this scale to the test and
were very impressed with the results: there are seven weighing modes total
& also a price-calculating function that works flawlessly in calculating the
item your weighing (no having to do the math separately anymore - this, we
found, helps to save you time & energy on calculating numbers separately).
The introduction of Weighmeter Technology into the PalmScale series is a bonus
as well: you can be certain that you're not going to overload your scale since
you will get an 'overload' warning, thus giving you enough time to remove any item
We did notice that the Hydro-Hinge wasn't available on this model as it was a cool
feature for the PalmScale 5.0 & 6.0, but that is ok. The protective cover on the
PalmScale 7.0 doubles as a tray (this is actually not a bad thing & only adds to
the sleek, minimalist look of the PalmScale 7.0; as well, the Protective Cover on the
PS7 can fasten securely to the scale when not in use thanks to its ingenious magnetic edge).
The simplicity of the design makes this ultra-easy to travel without having to lug around
extra accessories. The hydro-hinge was a cool feature of the PalmScale series, so for My
Weigh to take that feature out & focus more on the overall look/updated technology is
definitely a great trade-off. This has us excited for future innovations in the PalmScale
Series and ups the bar for future versions. Overall, we get new technology in the trade-off
and some nifty features as well as being the LOWEST PRICED PALMSCALE EVER! - what more could
you ask for from a scale that keeps reinventing itself?
is the must have scale, and it's truly the ultimate in portable weighing. It's light, practical,
and accurate and looks great. While other brands seem
to be lowering the bar, the Palmscale just raised the bar to a new
level. We can't recommend this amazing product enough.
It's the best pocket scale we've ever tested and therefore we have
granted it our SCALE OF THE YEAR. It's going to be difficult for anyone to beat this amazing scale.
We recommend the Palmscale 7 for anyone who uses weight to measure prices of
goods. If you are only measuring items for food or recipes this scale might
be overkill for your needs.
*Within reason - we stepped on the platform, dropped the scale from
4 ft, all without any damage except for cosmetic.
