    If you arent powerlifting or doing a sport where you need to be super accurate, you could pretty much go to target and buy one.

    The "bodyfat" readers that some scales have are useless as BIA is incredibly innacurate.

    I have a a Health O Meter doctor scale. I want a scale that is accurate and consistent. I have a little $20 hand held body fat tracker that isnt accurate, but is consistent if used properly. My whole family and then some use my equipment so I tend to go towards commercial/light-commercial equipment.

    I buy the ones at Costco and check their accuracy against one calibrated scale at my local VA clinic. If they're of I return and get another until I get a good one. I've had the one I have now for about a year and it's still really consistent
