My good old mechanical bathroom scales seem to fluctuate quite a bit. Sometimes i can stand on them, get off, then back on and they tell me something different!! usually only 1-1.5kg, but it was giving me the shits, so i decided to buy a set of digital scales. My old ones are about 5 years old.
I read the box, and from what i can gather, the mechanical measure the weight with a spring, and the digital scales are measured with strain technology.
PROBLEM.....As soon as i got home 15 minutes ago, i tested them out, and the digital scales are saying 127.8kg, and the mechanical scales are saying 126kg on the dot. Thats almost 2kg different. So for my weigh in later this week i will be going up on my chart, but down in real life!! This is quite disheartening!!lol
Is there any way of calibrating these digital scales to be the same as my old mechanical scales, or do i have to just except what they tell me?
My fathers digital scales are much closer to my mechanical scales than my new digital scales!
