I’m looking for a simple, no-frills, fast and accurate digital scale to weigh myself every morning. Not interested in body composition analysis attempts - we know they’re bogus.
To me, precision (consistency) matters more than accuracy. Any scale recommendations that fit these criteria (and are still available for purchase)?
What I’ve researched so far:
- Taylor Precision 7506 Digital Scale - recommended by Consumer Reports in 2016. Amazon reviews says that the current version is far less consistent, and the product is not returnable (possibly due to the lithium battery)
- Etekcity EB9380H, recommended by Wirecutter in 2020 - users report the resolution is actually 1lb, not the claimed 0.1lb
- Tanita HD, recommended in the same Wirecutter article. Allegedly more precise, but can’t disable the beeps and is slow to use.
- EatSmart Precision Plus, from the same article - shatters/disintegrates, is imprecise, and seems to suffer from the memory effect (despite the claims in Wirecutter that it does not)
