I don't necessarily rely on the measurements for accuracy, just direction. I know they aren't the best for measuring body fat, muscle mass.

I would agree that body fat scales aren't typically accurate. They can be good to measure trends, but won't necessarily give you an accurate reading.

No scale is accurate on the fat% and other stuff. I'm on my 2nd WW scale. Mine have been pretty accurate. The first one lasted about 6 years. Did you put yours in the same place the other scales were? Mine will show a different weight if I move it.

I just bought a Weight Watchers scale that's supposed to tell me my body fat %, hydration level and bone mass. It shows I'm about 4 lbs heavier than another scale I use and reports my body fat as being about 2% higher than the other scale.

Anyone else have one of these scales and do you think it's accurate?
