Well, you won't really need shades but, you won't have a problem reading your weights thanks to the blue backlight on the My Weigh PointScale.
Sometimes, having unwanted weight on your scale is just plain unavoidable. Don't worry your pretty little head. The PointScale 5 500 has a tare feature that will remove weight from your readings with, literally, a push of a button. Just put your weighing tray, bowl, scoop or whatever on the scale and press the "TARE" key. Now the scale is set back to zero and you can add the goodies you really want to weigh.
If your Point Scale needs a little tune-up, don't worry. You can calibrate this pocket scale all by yourself. It's so easy, all you need to get your PointScale back in tip-top-weighing shape is a 200 gram calibration weight (included!) and, of course, the PointScale user manual.
If you weigh your stuff with the same unit all the time and aren't too excited about pushing that little button to get to the unit you want every time you turn your scale on, you're in luck. The Point 500 will remember the unit you're weighing with and will turn on ready to weigh in the same unit next time.
Never again will your scale run out of juice because "someone" forgot to turn it off. The batteries in your PointScale will last longer because the auto-off function will shut that bad boy off after a few moments of inactivity. You don't even have to think about turning this digital scale off if you don't want to.
