This seems to be a good thing.

Via San Francisco Chronicle:

The world bathroom scales market is being driven by the growing demand from health conscious consumers focused on maintaining good shape and increasing awareness that body fat percentage is a more precise and superior indicator of health in contrast to body weight.


Globally, manufacturers of bathroom scales are in dilemma regarding the maximum weighing capacity of a bathroom scale. There is no uniformity, when it boils down to maximum weighing capacity of bathroom scales manufactured by different companies in different countries. For instance, in the US, a typical bathroom scale can weigh up to 180 kilograms, whereas, in most of the other countries it is in the range of 125 kilograms. However, there is an occasional demand for scales that can weigh more than 150 kilograms in many countries. Presently, retailers meet the customers’ demand by supplying industrial scales, which do not have the innovative features of modern bathroom scales.
