Bathroom Scale Review

Bathroom Scale Reviews

There are a number of different camps when it comes to using a digital bathroom scale as part of a weight loss plan. Some people say that you should weigh yourself every single day while others on the other end of the extreme say you shouldn’t weigh yourself at all and only go by your belt size or other measurements.

I am in the camp of weighing yourself every day as I believe it is important to get that daily reminder of where you have been, where you are and where you want to be in terms of losing weight. Personally, I need that motivation.

It is simply too easy to get derailed on your diet plan if you don’t weigh yourself every day, in my opinion. So, get yourself a great bathroom scale and kick butt on losing that weight!

What should you look for in a digital bathroom scale? Well I believe the most important aspect is to find a review done by someone who is actually using the product. My Gold medal winning product reviews are always products that work for me and that I use daily in my battle of the bulge. Personal bathroom scales reviews are absolutely critical in finding the best solution for you.

Other important aspects are durability (be sure to get one that can support your weight), battery life, looks and cost.

I hope you find this bathroom scale review helpful in finding the best bathroom scale for your needs.

UPDATE: Many of my readers, after researching the bathroom scales on this website, have chosen to go with the EatSmart Digital Bathroom Scale w/ Extra Large Backlit 3.5″ Display and Oversize Platform, a scale that isn’t one of my medal winners. You might want to check that one out, however.

Tanita Body Fat Monitor With Body Water %

Tanita Digital Scale

One of the first things I did when I started my weight loss plan was to invest in a new digital scale, the Tanita BF-683W Body Fat/Body Water Feature Scale. I can’t recommend this scale enough! Of course Tanita is a trusted brand, and this scale offers a number of outstanding features including the ability to measure body fat % and body water %.

One great feature of this scale is the ability for 4 different family members to track their statistics independently from each other. Battery life is outstanding and the scale is rated to 330 pounds should you need something durable.

This scale earns my personal recommendation - Gold medal winner.

Omron Body Fat Monitor and Scale

Omron Digital Scale

The Omron Body Fat Monitor and Scale is a lower cost option than the Tanita, but that doesn’t mean it still isn’t a great option. I have owned an Omron digital pedometer and know Omron to be another quality brand.

While this digital scale does not measure body water % it does measure weight, body fat percentage, and body mass index (BMI). Like the Tanita, it supports up to four personal profiles that can be used by different family members.

The one thing that you should be aware of with this digital scale is that in order for the BMI calculation to work you must be within a certain height range (3’4″ to 6′ 6-3/4″) and age range (10 to 79 years). Of course that covers most everyone!

If you would like to save a few bucks from the Tanita then I think this would be a good pick for you.

Weight Watcher Scale by Conair

Weight Watchers Digital Scale

Of the three award-winning digital bathroom scales, the Weight Watchers Digital Scale is the least expensive, but don’t let that scare you off. This looks to still be a good quality digital scale, albeit one with a very limited feature set.

Unlike the first two scales that measure everything from weight, to body fat % to body water % (only the Tanita) this one does one thing well - measures your weight. The reason this one won my bronze medal award is for the simplicity of operation, the maximum weight capacity of 330 pounds, and the elegant look of the glass and chrome design. I used a similar scale at an upscale hotel recently and thought it looked really great.

If you want to show off your scale like a decoration and you only need to measure your weight, this could be the scale for you.
