I'd like to ask for some help from this group. My old analog spring scale is rather finicky and doesn't appear to give accurate, consistent readings and it doesn't measure body fat percentage. I did some research and several reviews have rated the "EatSmart Precision GetFit Digital Body Fat Scale" very high. I was curious if any members have this scale and recommend it or if there are other favorites that this group would recommend.

I looked at the EatSmart one myself but couldn't get it in my area. I ended up with a digital set by Tanita, which is meant to be a decent brand. Mine has readouts for body fat percentage, visceral fat, muscle mass, total body water, etc.

The home scales use bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA), which is good and all but I'm not sure the technology in home scales is that accurate. My body fat percentage swings massively from day to day, for example.

It's handy to have but I don't really put any trust in my scales read outs to be honest - I take it as a very rough guide. I'm going to be getting a DEXA scan shortly to get a better handle on my body fat percentage.
