I want to buy a scale that monitors my % body fat, bmi, and other various statistics but I don't know which one to get. I don't want a $50 scale but I would like something that tells me more than just how much I weigh. Any suggestions?

I bought a Withings scale but they are pricey. I personally love it and my husband who freaked about the price actually uses it as much as I do. We've had it for years and have never had a problem with it. A nice, high quality product.

Also, the scale connects to your wireless system and so you can log onto a website where it records each weigh in. The version I have tracks up to 8 people.

I've been using salter 9119 mibody. It does bmi fat water muscle based on age and height. Comes with a usb stick so you can monitor your progress on a pc. Its been really good for me and its not expensive, got mine from amazon.

I thought about getting one of these scales, but I found out that they are not very accurate. They send a current up one leg and across the pelvis and down the other leg. If your body fat is mostly in the belly and upper body and you have relatively thin legs, it is going to be way off.

I've been thinking about buying the newest Withings to see if they worked out some of the kinks. I've heard they are not that accurate - some reviews on amazon and best buy. I'm just wondering if you found yours to be accurate. Thanks!! I might get one at Best Buy when it comes out in a few weeks, that way it will be easier to return if I don't like it.

I bought mine right from Withings directly. I believe it's fairly accurate. A few times I weighed myself before going to the doctor and the weight was really close.

Where do I go to recalculate my RDI's.
I think you go into your weigh-in icon along top of your page, scroll down and on the right you will see a section titled My Diet. It has recalculate there.
