100 lb. Club - Question about weighing....

View Full Version : Question about weighing....

I have a digital scale and when I step on it sometimes it gives me different weights. I always go by the one that is most consecutive(more than once).

Anyhow this morning I stepped on the scale and it first said 262lbs, then said 266lbs, then 3 times after that it said 258lbs.

What should I go by, the highest it said, or the 3 consecutive ones?

Does it always do this? do you still have your receipt - take it back.

my scale is pretty accurate. I asked the store before I paid for it if I could take it back and they said yes.... up to one year.

if it's an older scale - do you need to replace the batteries? or maybe get a new one?

That's what I am thinking....battery replacement needed. We've had this scale for a couple years now at least

My scale has one of those lithium batteries. can't replace it. I'd freak out if I got a new scale. But mine does tend to fluctuate when I get on & off. I'd love to pay big bucks for one of those digital doctor ones!!!

You said that your's fluctuates too...so which weight do you go by...the most consecutive one or the highest one?

If I get two out of three to agree, I use that one. If not, I take the highest.
