Anyone have advice on a home scale? I know a lot of them are advertising all that they measure beside weight. are those even accurate.

Budget?
I just ordered a $20 unit from that online retailer in the deep jungles of Africa. (On sale from $32)

It has bells and whistles but honestly if it just gets the weight right I will be happy. It’s the mirror that tells the story.

A real scale like in doctors offices or gyms with weights and are calibrated can cost $300 and up.

Here is our new scale.

I mean the bells and whistles could be done without. unless they are highly accurate, for instance BMI, water weight, bone mass, body fat, I just don't know how a scale could do all that with accuracy

You mean South America?

But ya best just getting a decent scale for weighing yourself, but I wouldn't worry about all the extras some of them do. I doubt they are accurate and even getting a semi-accurate one will just mess with your head more if it has any sort of variability and just drive up the cost.

Oh your right about that. There are accurate scales that do digital and analogue on that site for $55. I just figured a $32 scale may have that consistency. Bells and whistles aside.View attachment 191850
