How accurate are body fat % scales?

I've been losing weight well for the last couple of months and I just recently started working out more, and I feel like I am putting muscle on and would like to start measuring my body fat % as well as my weight.

I've been looking at scales and found a 'Homedics' scale that apparently measures body fat, body water and muscle mass for a RRP of £50 but it can be found for £20 on the internet.

I just have a feeling that they won't be very accurate (in the body fat % measuring)?

Anybody have any experience with bf% scales? Is it worth the money? Thanks

I used to belong to Curves and they used the ones you hold out in front of yourself. If that's the ones you mean They seemed to be good.. Doesn't your local Boots or Lloydes have any you can use??

Ive had this problem too. This morning i weighed myself and i was 12st 5.6.
I switched the scales to pounds and i was 174lbs and in kilos in 78.5kg so the pounds and thw kilos have me at 12st 3 but not the actual stones bit when i weigh on that setting.

Yep that's a problem I have with normal scales...

I now only weigh in pounds as that's what MiniMins uses.
