Went doctors on friday so whilst i was there, i asked could they measure my height, im definatly 5 foot 7, he said the manual ones are alot more presise than the automatic ones,

I find they are usually ok. If I properly stand tall each time I get the same result height wise but some times when I don't care about BMI and just want weight and slouch it really shows. It normally measures me at 5'6.6 which is my height- I'm an inbetweener :D Think that machine that Faxman used definately had a few issues. One of which would have been me demanding my money back!
