    What scales would you "swear by" ?

    Amazon has so many rubbish reviews for scales that I have no idea where to start.
    I suppose digital ones will be useful for tracking but not if they are ridiculously inaccurate.
    Are there brands or models you swear by?
    As things are all shut - the bod pod things are all shut down so ..

    Look on Craigslist or Marketplace for an old doctor’s scale. Gravity still works and and so do the laws of physics (rotational equilibrium).

    any scale should do. you really don't need a special scale just to track your weight imo

    None will give you an accurate reading of anything other than your weight. If you're expecting one to track your bodyfat, water, lean muscle mass etc. then you're going to be disappointed. They are all wildy inaccurate. Get any decent digital scale and weigh yourself a few times back to back. If you get the same number 3x in a row you're probably good to go.

    If those were all in a row, without any food, drink or bathroom in between then its a piece of ****. Get one on Amazon and test it, worst case its junk but you have free returns.

    I have two electronic ones.

    A $25 one from Amazon and a $150 Garmin scale that my wife bought for me. When I have used them back to back, they gave me the same reading for my weight (within a 1/10 of a pound variance). So take from that what you will about "Cheap vs expensive".
