Most mornings we go through the same routine: we step on our digital scale, grab something heavy and step on again, then weigh ourselves a third time. The reason? The scale gives a different reading before and after we hold the heavy thing (in our case, a storage bin of out-season clothes). We've learned not to trust it, and have begun to feel nostalgic for a good old fashioned analog scale. Here's why else we want one.
• Large, easy-to-see dial face.
• Circular dial gives a more visceral sense of relative weight gain or loss.
• Four little colored tabs fit around the face to mark weight goals and milestones.
Since the relative accuracy of an analog scale's spring mechanism trumps the body fat readouts and tenth of a pound increments of our digital scale, we'll be picking one of these up soon.
