Everything in one place
I find very useful that the data is avaible from my smartphone as soon as the measure took place. I like the decorative graphicons and the modern appearance of the platform.
Better than the GSM ones.
I found my GSM scales expensive on long term so i tried this one. I really like the easy using of the scale. The low power design makes easier the whole process.
The set up was only 1 minute. After the unpack you just have to place it under the beehive, turn on and scan a QR code. That's all!
