German term or phrase: mit Reserven
Genau dafür haben wir unsere Waagen entwickelt: Präzision mit Reserven und einfachster Bedienung.
This appears in the marketing material of a company that manufactures weighing scales. What do they mean by 'Präzision mit Reserven'?

English translation:at a cheap price
Explanation:
'Reserve' refers to a saving in money.
It is unlikely to mean "adequate accuracy" as this would indicate a loss in precision - hardly a good selling point for a set of scales

I'm not sure I actually agree that 'Reserven' refers to the price, but yours was the most sensible suggestion. Thanks.

adequate accuracy


Explanation:
Es scheint mir, dass es um eine ausreichende Praezision geht. Englische Uebersetzung lautet in diesem Falle "adequate accuracy".

Sieh auch, z.B.

Longer tests might enhance accuracy, "especially if readers interpret
these results to indicate that current tests do not have adequate accuracy."

Hoffe, dass kann helfen.
