I've got a Tanita. It was something like 120 when I first got it about 4 years ago. Still works great. And Ive only had to change the batteries twice

I try to avoid scales at all times, but somtimes I wonder so I use the tipping scale at my gym.

I've got two. One is digital and reads bodyfat, the other is just plain and normal.

For some reson the weight about 10lbs difference. The digital is always reading heavy and the other seems light. I'm not sure why or which one to go by. It also depends on the floor material. The bathroom is laminate, so I use the concreate in the basement (more solid base).

i got plenty of mdf laying around so i figure i'll throw a slab of that on the floor before i weigh...

i think i'd rather have "analog" than digital....body fat readout would be cool...but honestly...how does it tell?

between the shitty one i have at home...which is the lovely mustard yellow of the 70's...and the doctors office, i got like an 8 pound difference. gay. all scales should just be made...well...equal.

Whenever I'm not sure how accurate a scale is I just take a 25lb. plate and put it on there... since at least you already know what the plate weighs
