    I am after some digital scales that also weigh 1/2lb not just 1lb?

    Any ideas?

    I have some digital scales that were pretty cheap and decent from Argos. Like, for example, they go to the nearest oz (10st 7lb 3oz)

    They are a brand called 'Salter' think they were about £10-£15 from Argos. Only problem I found was that they weighed slightly heavier than my old scales but I guess different scales give you a different reading x

    I've got WW Glass Precision LED Scales. They are bout £20 from Argos but have to say they are excellent. They weigh in to a 1/4 of a lb so 13st 4 1/4 lbs for example. However, i always round down hehe :D x

    My scales are Weight Watcher ones, they were expensive when I bought them 3 years ago but they are really good, they weigh in ½lb and ¼lbs too, hope this helps.

    I have these and they're ACE! The day of my first weigh in I weighed self on them and hurried to the group to see what the difference is. Basically, if I add on a lb to what my home scales say - it's pretty much the SW group weight. I only weigh self once mid-week at the same time as class to see how the week is panning out.

    Bargain for the price!

    I bought these Lloyds Pharmacy - Lloydspharmacy Digital Glass Body Fat Scales (Ihope I've done that right!) last week for £14.99 and I've been very impressed with them. Especially as When I weighed in at group last week I found they gave me an identical reading to SW scales, first time thats happened, so no more complicated sums for me.

    WORD OF CAUTION!!!

    I meant to say in my last post - try to leave these in one place and one place only - the variation I had when I moved mine an inch sideways was 2lbs!!! I don't know why I did this test (I was messing about with them)- but always keep in same spot ;-)

    I got this set from Argos (half price) simply because I can keep an eye on my fat percentage too so if I have a plateau I can check I'm still loosing fat and gaining muscle :)
