    Hey Everyone.

    My Wiifit says I weight 198Lbs at the moment and my Bathroom Scales say I weigh 204.4

    I have put them both in the living room next to each other(wood floor not carpet) and they still say same :O

    Any thoughts?
    Which is accurate?

    The Wii Fit is not that accurate. I always go by the bathroom scales...the Wii Fit always says I'm a bit lighter but I know the bathroon ones are right, unfortunately!

    I've always noticed that the wii says im slightly lighter.

    Has anyone tried putting in that your clothes weigh 0lbs (other) maybe this would make it even?? xx

    I use my wii fit on a wooden floor because I know when I first used it I tried it on carpet and got wildly different readings.

    I've not actually tried weighing myself anywhere else but I do know that my son weighed himself on the wii fit and then had to go to the doctors about a week later and was weighed and it was exactly the same. I am therefore perhaps foolishly assuming that the wii fit is (reasonably) accurate. ;)

    I find my wii fit is very unaccurate. I went out and bought a scales that tell me body fat. weight, water, muscle and bone ( not that take notice of muscle and bone) I only note the weight and the body fat and only stick to those scales now. They are bang on with the readings.
