I've always used analog scales all my life. Today arrived some digital scales; ACTIVE ERA MODEL -BS-03 which i decided to buy. As i read good customer reviews on it, and someone said Slimming World uses Active Era scales to weigh members on.
I stepped on them, and i was unpleasantly surprised that they read different to the analog scales.
The difference between them was 1 and half lbs.
The digital reading being the heaviest.
I'm reluctantly thinking the digital scales might be the most accurate?
I read recently that analog scales loose their accuracy over time. And mine have been in the bathroom many years.
Should i recycle the analog scales, and stick only to the digital ones? Or is it worth keeping them. I'm thinking it's probably not.
Any thoughts, on this matter would be welcomed.
And what scales do you use, and do you have a preference and why?
I always liked analog, seemed less likely to break down, and you don't have to worry about more things going wrong as with digital scales i thought.
Any thoughts please share.
