I like the fact that the smaller scale measures in tenths of a gram.

Why not just buy 2 scales?


Also even between both the ones you linked it's hard to choose.

The KA has a really low large range and a really high small range.
Heston's is the opposite. It has a huge high but a laughable low.

I prefer hundredths personally.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

Do you have any suggestions on brands?
The thing is I've heard of these brands vs the seemingly unending brands on Amazon.

MyWeigh KD-8000 is about the best "large" scale you can get.
It's powered by (sane) batteries, has a large capacity, large dials, disableable auto off, has an AC adapter if you want, and a really easily readable display.

For small scale (heh) I like the DuraScale D2 for a 0.1g and have no real useful recommendation for a 0.01g.
I do own a few of them, but they're kinda meh at best.

The KD-8000 is easily the best large scale though.
The only downside is that it's big and thick.
