The most accurate bathroom scales are going to be the ones that do more than just keep track of your weight. They are going to be the digital scales that help you to maintain a healthy lifestyle. That may seem impossible. The truth is that you may just need to throw out your misconceptions of bathroom scales.

Bathroom scales used to be in every bathroom in every home. Almost everyone in the family stepped on to it after getting out of the shower. They lost the accuracy after a few uses because they shifted. Digital bathroom scales have become a lot more accurate bathroom scales.

They calibrate themselves so that you always get an accurate reading. They remember who you are so that as soon as you step on them, your profile pops up. The most accurate bathroom scales keep track of everyone in the house, without fuss or losing accuracy.

Bathroom scales have kept up with the technological advances available in the world today. You can sync them to your smart device so that you always have access to water retention, BMI, and even muscle density. The most accurate bathroom scales are tools for your everyday life and are no longer just the thing you jumped and wiggled on as a kid to see if you could make the needle move.

Omron BF511 Family Body Comp Monitor


Omron HBF-511BE BLUE Family Body Comp Monitor

In our tests we have found the BF511 to be the most accurate scale for weight and body fat. The are multiple reasons for this. One is the 8 point system at work behind the scenes to give you the best calculation. The other reason is that it doesn’t only take readings from your feet like most other scales do. You have to hold the handle bars at 90 degrees from you which sends a pulse through your body. The pulse helps the device accurately calculate body fat percentage and visceral fat throughout your body. It will give you the confidence that what you’re reading is correct. Read Full Review

the Salter 9141 WH3R Glass Body Fat Analyser by Homemedics

I have found that the accuracy of this scale depends on the environment around you when you are using it. Although the LCD screen is fog resistant, I have found it can throw off the results a bit if it is steamed up. For the best and most accurate results I would keep this scale in a dry room and step on it with dry feet. I would give this scale a decent accuracy rating for the price, however if you are more particular about your accuracy then I would look at some of the devices further up this list.
