I purchased mine at one of the local sports stores. I think it was either Sports Authority or Dick's. I don't remember exactly.

I just looked them up and you can purchase them at Circuit City, Linens and Things or Target.

You can also purchase them online at www.Amazon.com or www.Drugstore.com .

I would check the Tanita website out first to find the model you like best. They are at: www.tanita.com

They have many models and some can be very pricey. I think I paid around $50 for mine.

Definitely use dumbbells and put them on the scales to measure accuracy. Some scales you can calibrate to the weights.

I like my Tanita scale. The model I have measures weight and body fat percentage.

i have one too...........from time to time i put one of my weights on it to see if it still continues to be accurate and so far it has been great...........i vote for the tanika............



“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

An FYI you probably already know: The thing about weighing yourself is that water weight isn't accounted for and can vary by as much as 5# from one weigh-in to another. Also, moving the scale around (say from against the wall to middle of the room) apparently can give different readings, too.

I have a Tanita & I wondered about it's accuracy as well. So I changed the batteries, put it in a spot where I'd be unlikely to move it & weighed myself AM & PM for 7 days, 3 times in a row. My weight went up/down by 1 to 1.5 lbs daily which I account for water weight. But my 3 times in a row weight was consistent each day. DOes that make sense?

I checked Consumer Reports but don't see a recent study about scales. They seemed to like Taylor for body fat accuracy and Tanita for weight. I've heard the ones in the doctor's office are most accurate, but they are big $$$. Long story short, I like my Tanita scale.

Stay calm and carry on.

I have 2 scales at home here, both digital, but they seem so inconsistent. In everyone's opinion, what is the most accurate scales on the market and where can I buy it? Thanks for your advice.
