The best scales?

Postby carleyjt » Sun Jan 29, 2006 10:09 pm

I have to buy a set of scales and was wondering which are the best. Digital or normal, brands, cost, etc. Any ideas would be great, Thanx :)

I have an electronic glass bathroom scale made by Modern Living and sold at Target for $149 but during Christmas was only $111.
It's a very accurate digital scale (but then again my analogue $12 scale I got from woolworths was pretty good for 4 years too)

I've got a woolies analogue one too. It seems to be pretty good. I think just whatever you do end up with stick to it (as all scales will be different) and replace it after a reasonable amount of time (eg the warranty)

15kg gained again (as at October 2010).

I've got a digital set (Camry) that weigh in 100g increments, got them from Target, cost about $60. I find these scales great for motivation, a loss of 100g or 0.1kgs is still a loss.

Whatever scales you buy make sure you always weigh in the same spot each week, different floor coverings have different effects on the way scales operate - sounds weird but I swear its true.

Happy shopping.

That's very true Angel. You should always use scales on a hard surface as carpet plays havoc in particular
