    I prefer something that goes to the hundredths e.g. 185.44, but it's not a big deal if it only goes to the tenths.

    What do you guys recommend?

    Scale to weigh my body not my cocaine.

    What makes you think that doctors scales are more accurate than home models?

    Mostly for me, but that doesn't mean I've never used a body scale to weigh food on a paper plate :rofl:

    Because I don't want a scale that is inaccurate? What kind of question is that?
