    I have the ww body fat analyser scales and they are pretty acurate.

    Give you and idea of you weight, bmi, body fat in percent and lbs/kgs and water percent.

    I have some salters digital scales that i got from argos, they are pretty accurate and i would definatley reccomend them but i cant remember how much they cost. I might need some new ones though because i think they've gone abit funny. I will probably get some digital scales under £10. xx :)

    Guess?!

    I have Tanita - High Capacity Scales, HD-372.

    I've had them 3 years, they're perfectly accurate, and weigh up to 28.5 Stones. Look great, and have a huge illuminated display, showing pounds, kilos or stones+pounds to the quarter-pound.

    One drawback: don't work accurately on carpet, not even on a sturdy board, and no adapter-feet available.

    So I bought some Salter scales - to 31.5 stones, which worked on carpet. They did work on carpet, but had a tiny window which was not illuminated, and showed stones-and-pounds as 13-7.6....who understands what 7.6 lbs really means? So I sent them back, and bought a new battery for my Tanita!

    Mine were £50, and well worth it, but I got them half-price, so even better.

    They weigh each part of your body. You can find out how much your right leg weighs. Very handy :clap: Never know when you might need to fill that out on a form :clap:
