I have a digital scale but I prefer NO scale...they lie, cheat, and

I use a Taylor scale too, it's great. Very accurate.

I've only used the Taylor digital scales. I can't tell you if they are completely accurate or not, but they are pretty close to the weight I am on the Wii Fit balance board (if that is accurate, LOL).

I put my 10 pound weights on them and they usually show 4 ounces more than the actual weights, so not bad at all.

Hate to say I can't stand the looks of a scale . . . like it say's 'I'm on a diet' so I bought one that was glass with a digital read out. Not that noticeable on tile floor.

I also have the Homedics digital scale. It's the most reliable one I've owned.

I'm not sure what brand it is. It is a scale I got from Walmart. It is a bathroom scale, that is activated with a touch of my toe and when it flashes 0 I get on. I think its accurate.

I like my WW digital scal. Not too expensive at Target.

My scales are old, but they still work. They are very simple electronics, no fancy gadgets. I got the kind though, that bring the lbs up so that I can see the numbers. I have a hard time seeing them on the floor sclaes.

The ones I weigh the lowest on! Tee hee. All kidding aside...I work out at 2 gyms...the one at work has me about 5 lbs heavier. It is a traditional balance/ docs office type scale. the one at the gym is electronic & I weigh less on it! Yipee! Someonbe told me though that the traditional balance one is probably more acurate. Boo hoo! So not sure.

SparkPeople had this one featured about a week ago. I'm planning on purchasing it as a reward for myself when meeting my monthly goals this month.

A simple robust scales with a money back guarentee.. I have a BMI scales but they are not accurate at all- the more fine mechanics the more sensitive to breaking they are..
