Default Which type of scale do you use?

With different types of scales out there, I was wondering what the majority of people use to weight themselves. I use a digital scale, I find it more accurate then say the dial scales, I learned this a few years back when my mom had a dial scale, it weighed me 10 pounds lighter than my digital scales, then one day when my mom went to the doctor she was surprised that she weighed 10 pounds heavier than what her scales showed. So now she even uses the digital scales. So what type of scale do you think is more accurate??

Default Digital

I bought a digital. I hope that it was a wise investment.

I have a Tanita digital scale, it is the most accurate I've used.

I have both...I first had the normal dial scale, but I wanted a more accurate reading so I bought a digital...I sometimes weigh my self on both to see the differences....but I love the digital because it has the decimals...
