Seems like a decent scale, but its precision doesn't mean it has super powers. As others have said, despite this scale being able to measure to the 0.2 pound, it can give different results by just stepping on it twice consecutively. ...Having had the scale less than a month, twice I have weighed myself in the a.m., then gone to the bathroom, gotten back on the scale...and lost nothing. Sigh...I pee at the LEAST six ounces in the a.m. A few times I have gotten on it, and then a few minutes later gotten back on it and weighed 0.4-0.6 pounds more. (I am around 150 lbs.)
Yes, it can measure my 15 lb hex dumbell, noting an exact 15.0 difference in my weight if I hold it, but who cares? ...Don't count on this for accurately charting day-to-day changes in your weight any better than any other scale.
It does seem sturdy, and yes--it holds the reading for enough time to get off and read it, if your gut is obstructing your view. It comes with three AAA batteries.
