Bathroom Scales

Monitoring your health is important, and additions like a weight scale in your bathroom can help you measure and stick to your goals. Nowadays bathroom scales are much more than the simple analog scales of old. You can now find a digital scale in a variety of colors and styles, not to mention they come with a slew of options and accessories. If you plan on tracking your weight goals, here are some things to look for when purchasing a new weight scale:

What are some features I should look for when buying a new digital scale?


Your weighing machine won’t do you any good if it isn’t accurate or doesn’t meet your needs. Before making your purchase, look for the following features:
• Measurement increments: Smaller measurement increments will give you a more accurate reading. Look for increments within 0.2 percent or pounds at a minimum.
• Wide platform: A narrow platform can make it difficult to balance while you measure your weight, so look for scales that feature a wide platform — around 13 inches or more.
• Weight capacity: Look for scales with the capacity to measure weight between 300 and 550 pounds.
• Large display: You shouldn’t have to crouch down to read the display, so look for large, easy-to-read numbers, preferably ones that are backlit.
• Power: A solar powered scale can work well in a bathroom bathed in sunlight, but many bathrooms don’t feature a window. For a windowless bathroom or if you plan to store your weighing machine when it’s not in use, a battery-powered model is best.
Accuracy: If you do plan to go with an analog scale, be sure it’s easily adjustable so it zeroes out, or starts at zero, every time you use it. Digital scales don’t share this concern, but you will need to make sure you install new batteries every so often.

Do bathroom scales come with additional options?


While many are satisfied with a simple weighing machine, others require more in-depth analysis of their body fat. A body fat scale uses bioelectrical impedance analysis, or BIA, which tends to be less accurate than hydrostatic weighing but takes up much less space in your bathroom. If you plan to share your weight scale with family members, a model that tracks weight for multiple users is essential. Lastly, if you enjoy tracking your data on the go, many newer models send your weight information to the cloud, where it can be accessed anywhere via an app on your smartphone or tablet.
