Question Analog Scale or Digital Scale?

Just curious....how many of you use an analog scale? I still do..maybe I will treat myself to a digital one when I hit my vanity goal.

I don't have a problem with an analog scale. I've used one before for several years. Right now I'm using a digital one and I prefer it cos I can see my pounds and ounces

i use both. analog in the bathroom and wii balance board scale which gives ounces. it helps me think long term, bigger picture when i use the analog. i only measures in 1 pound increments, which are hard to see. so it's easy to see where i am within the 2 or 3 pound margin. so mostly i see i stayed the same, or lost weight. with the digital showing ounces, there's more fluctuation. so i have to take that with a grain of salt, going with the general trend of going downward on the chart.

I basically use a very old analog scale which probably weighs me lower than a digital scale would. It is also harder to see fluctuations, which has pros and cons.

I think I keep it because it does still work and I don't want to see my weight go up and change my high weight to 300! Silly, I know.

I use a digital one, but my Dad strongly believes that analogue scales are more accurate...

Yep!

If you decide to go digital, you can purchase one for about $20 anymore, they're just not as expensive as they were even a few years ago when I bought my first digital (with all the bells and whistles) for about $50.. Seriously :/
