Operating system used by weight scale

The operating system used by a weight scale is important because it determines the ease of use and readability of the display. Let’s say that you want to record the weight of your items when you clean the scale.

You can do this by setting the scale’s operating system to “record” mode. However, if the operating system is set to “read-only” mode, you won’t be able to save your readings.
