So I've had the same digital scale for about 4 years now. It's made by "GO! Fitness" and I bought it at walmart. It's sort of neat in that it's suppose to calculate your body fat percentage at the same time as it weighs you...the first time you use it, it asks you your gender, height and it recorded the first weight I weighed in at. Sounds cool, right? But it annoyed me because it seemed very inconsistant. You could weigh yourself 3 times in a couple of minutes and get a different weight each time, sometimes as much as a 2 lb difference. Also, it wasn't a flat surface, but rather weighed you with raised bumps you stepped on...I worried about lining myself up correctly on it so it'd be accurate...it seemed like it could be an issue. Finally, the bodyfat percentage calculator has never worked right...I've lost 40 lbs since I bought that scale and it has never changed my reading from 29-30ish...it says around that number each and every time I use it(twice daily).
So I was in Target today...last minute shopping, and see a new digital scale on an end cap--made by Taylor. It seems pretty simple--just does weight, and it says it's suppose to be accurate up to 0.2 of a lb and it has a flat surface to weigh on so I buy it. I get it home and weigh myself and this scale says 169.2. I weigh myself 3 times and get the exact same weight each time...even after positioning myself a little different each time. Then I weigh myself on the old scale, sitting right beside it and get 171.6. I would very much like the new scale to be right... has anyone heard of this company(Taylor)? The fact that it was the same every time is a good sign, right?
