Beurer. Bought it this past weekend from Bed Bath and Beyond as another user suggested it for me. Its memory holds up to 10 profiles. Input your weight, height, sex, activity level etc, step on the scale, and it clocks your weight. Then every week when you step back on, it will tell you your weight and the increment in which you lost, or gained.

It also calculates your body fat, muscle, and water %.

I believe it was $30, and BBB always has coupons for 20% off, so I saved a few bucks. They also are good when it comes to returns if anything were to malfunction.

So far, It's a great purchase. emoticon

I have the same as Alyssa40 - a Tanita. Bought it on Amazon and it is very close to to my doctor's scale.

It is a digital scale but if you step on it 4 times you will get 4 different weights. It was not cheap but definitely not consistant.. The brand is Sunbeam.

Same problem. I'm getting a digital. Current scale the needle can read (stick) anywhere with a 5 to 6 pound discrepancy.

I have one of those flat, step-on-and-watch-the-numbers-whiz-by scale in the bathroom. I also use a Wii fit balance board. Hard to "cheat" that one. emoticon

I use my bathroom scale. It may be wrong, but it will be consistent. Even a watch that is set 5 min ahead still can tell you when an hour has passed.

I was wondering what scale everyone uses. The scale I have is not very accurate. I have to step on it 4 or 5 times to get a consistent number. I have big feet (size 13) so I don't know if that makes a difference. I am looking for an ACCURATE scale to buy. I would like it to measure weight to the .2 pounds. I don't need any fancy extras, just weight, that won't break the bank. How will does your scale work? Can anyone recommend a good scale?
