  • Recommendations for scales (not a joke thread)

    Okie, I'm in need of a scale that doesn't make me want to punch it in its face. I bought this one from Amazon: Click here for piece of shit scale

    It blows. Incredibly inaccurate and imprecise. I need something reliable to judge body weight fluctuations on a day-to-day basis. Any recommendations?

    I have this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...n=&s=&v=glance

    If I get on three times in a row, it'll at least give the same reading.

      I have the one similar to Mentals...I havent had any issues with it and it is quite consistent. The last one I had would give a different weight damn near every time (within seconds)...I had to move it around the bathroom and avg. them out.

      For me, I just wanted it to be consistent...get the same number if I step off and step back on. The old was fluctuating by like five lbs at times.

        I have the same and it has been the most consistent one I've had yet.

              You are a physicist, can't you build your own? I'll bet your students would be very disappointed...

                    I've used this one for some time now and other than having to change the batteries out, I've had no issues with it. Its made by Taylor and I guess at some point endorsed by the TV show the Biggest Loser because that was written on my scale.

                      These look like scales meant for foodies.

                          I thought you were looking for something to measure your food,, didn't read you 1st post completely). Well when you need one of those you got something to look at.

                            Call me up some time, we can do chem together. It'll be fun, I promise.

                              I use the scale v1 recommended for food too, and it works great. I'm sure it would work well to weigh yourself, if you did it in ounces!

                              Just did it, 3520 oz
