Perfect Scale

Options
Hi!
I am looking for a new body scale, mine is super old and I wanted to get a digital one that is very acurate and also can measure other things like body fat and whatever else.

Please give me any tips on some out there on the market! :)

Thanks :flowerforyou:

    I cannot for the life of me understand how a scale can measure body fat? Doesn't it just take whatever (whoever) steps on the scale and weighs it? How does it know what is fat% and what is not?

    I had a Tanita and liked it...but got rid of it when I got pregnant, since you aren't supposed to use them when pregnant. (At least the one I had.)

    I agree on the Tanita, that is what I have. I like it very much, not always what it tells me:ohwell: BUT the scale is great.
