Doctor's Weight Scales
Professional Scales Compared
by Vaughn Aubuchon

What is the best eye-level, doctor-type mechanical-beam medical weight scale?

Weight Watchers digital scales SUCK. They are cheap, super inaccurate, and can vary up to 8 LBS between 2 different readings, if you slightly shift your weight forward, back, left or right. A rapidly repeated reading will simply REPEAT the last reading, with the intent to make you THINK it is accurate. Wait for 1 minute, and you will get a totally different reading.

I am sick of messing around with my WW scale. The design is inherently flawed. Weighing myself 10 times to get an average (actual weight) STINKS. I'm going PRO!
