Default bathroom scales

Just wondering about what kind of bathroom scales people prefer. I have a digital scale that is really weird. I can step on it 3 times and get 3 differant weights. Does this happen with all? Just wondering what works good for you?

I like my digital because it measures the .2 pound increments, but it does get kind of flaky sometimes. As soon as it gives me two that match, I take that. They can be very responsive, and if you step on harder than normal or are off balance I've found that can affect the reading.

We have the Tanita InnerScan Body Composition Monitor:


I haven't learned how to use all the bells and whistles yet, but it's an extremely good scale, very accurate, easy to use.....hubby and I both are very happy with it.

Overall progress:

I too keep stepping on until I get the same number.

I have a digital scale that I gotat Bed Bath and Beyond. THe brand name is Thinner. It's clear and I'vealways gotten good readings!

I have a Taylor digital and find it to be quite accurate but it is finicky about what surface it is on, needs to be on a flat, even surface, not carpet.
