Even though scary, women cannot live without a weighing scale as they are like their addiction, and once in their home, they cannot stop using them. Weighting in the morning is like their good morning routine and usually, they pray for better results than the previous day (chuckles). But with the huge selection on the market, sometimes choosing the right one can be quite tricky, especially when it comes to choosing the right type.
Generally speaking, there are two types of body weight scale available on the market, digital and analogue, and each of them has its pros and cons. Lots of research have been made and almost all of them show that digital body weight scales are better and more accurate, however, in order not to make rush decisions let’s see what are their characteristics and “superpowers”.
Let’s start with the most popular type of weight scales back then, the analogue ones. They are used for achieving an exact measurement of any particular thing, and using one is pretty easy. All you need to do is to stand upon the machine and the spring in it will measure your body weight. Keep in mind that these scales can measure for up to 120 kg and their main downside is that won’t give you accurate measurements when compared with digital scales. Moreover, the digital body weight scales work mechanically which means that the accuracy of the machine can slightly vary and it won’t give you minute measurements like grams.
Without any doubts, digital weighing machines are one of the most popular and most commonly used types of weighing machines. Not only they look prettier and more appealing, but they also give more accurate measurements. Unlike digital, the weight in these machines is measured by the built-in spring, so once you stand upon it, the weight of your body will be displayed in the scale’s display. These types of weighing scales can weigh up to 150 kg and its main benefit is that it gives more accurate measurement even grams and it can store for up to 10 previous weight readings, so you can easily check up your previous weights. The main downside of a digital body weight scale is that it runs on batteries, so you will have to change them now and then. However, this is not that big of a deal as it gives more accurate results.
All in all, digital weight scales are way better than the analogue, so when it comes to choosing one, you can pick of different materials, styles, shapes, sizes, and features
