I need to get a new scale. What I thought would be an easy process is overwhelming! There are so many choices out thereConfused
All I want is a scale that is accurate, good quality and has weight recall. I would like one that shows what my weight was previously. Does anyone know of a good one out there? Would appreciate any advice.
Thanks, Mary

Yes. The health-o-meter digital scale - it keeps track of weight for at least 2 people. Didn't pay much. Got it from Wal-Mart a couple of years ago.

I have a good set of tanita scales for home, they have bodyfat analysis, can store multiple users, and are rock solid construction wise. Accuracy is bang on with these.

I have the Health-O-Meter too and it seems to be very close to what my doctor's office scales. I think the most important thing in using any scale as a "monitor" of your progress is to weight at on the same scale, at the same time of day, with the same clothing (or lack thereof).

Thanks everyone! After much review I went and bought the Omron HCM-516. I will probably only use the weight tracking but figured my hubby would enjoy the body composition feature.

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
