I use this one and another excellent set of scales. There is probably .5 lb difference between the two, but they have different advantages. This one may be my favorite, because I can compare my results with 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, etc.
I m particularly interested in building muscle and of course when you do that, your weight goes up, you may panic and think things are going poorly, when they aren t. I don t pay as much attention to the weight as I do the other factors. Am I building more muscle? Is my fat % going up, down, or staying the same? Some of that weight gain may be muscle, which is heavier than fat.
Scales that show me more than just weight keep me accountable and don t make me crazy when I gain a pound or two, as long as one of the more important indicators are improving, fat%, muscle growth, etc.
I recommend this scale. I use it every day. It helps me reach my fitness goals.
