Default Body fat scale (cheapie?)

Any recommendations on a reliable scale that calculates body fat percentage as well? I am on a tight budget and looking for a decent one for a decent price. Does such a thing exist? Would love any help with this, thank you so much!

I have this one from Taylor http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=taylor+body+fat+scale&rls=com.microsoft: en-us:IE-SearchBox&oe=UTF-8&rlz=1I7ADBF_en&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=13502354518239442132&ei=lwdWTcz1EYG2twfAoI3w DA&sa=X&oi=product_catalog_result&ct=result&resnum =4&ved=0CD8Q8wIwAw# It measures body fat, bone mass, and hydration. I find it very accurate and reliable.

Default Body Fat Scale

I have this same Taylor above and the body fat % is not ever been close. It always says that I have over 50% body fat. I know that I'm not in the best shape but its no where close to being accurate. The weight on the scale is really accurate though. I tested against several others. I'm 6'3 and weigh 291. I weigh less now than I did in this pic and I have also gained some muscle mass. I seriously doubt that I am caring over 145 lbs. of body fat.

Hi,

I have a Taylor 5741, it measures BMI, % of body fat and H2O level. You can set it up for 4 different people. I think it's pretty accurate, measures in increments of 0.2 lbs. I bought it for $20 (on sale). The only problem I had was with the set up, I set myself as a boy and I'm a girl . . . (the little pics are really little) and so it kept saying my water was low 37% and I kept drinking like a gallon or more of H20 per day, then I realized that my body fat was not correct nor was my BMI, (if I calculated it on the computer) so I switched to the "other" pic and everything was fine and I quit drinking a gallon or so of H2O every day . . . I'm so silly But other than that, I really like it
