These scales are just the thing you need. You step onto them and they work straight away - no tapping them first like our old scales. Having set them up, which is very easy to do, they then recognise each user when you use them. We have them in the bathroom on a tiled floor and they seem to be very accurate and give consistent weight readings. The scales are great to look at with a modern design and are very thin so don't take up much room. These are the first scales we've had which also measure body fat, etc. This is a fun feature as far as I'm concerned. The values appear to be about right, and again seem to be consistent from day to day, but we haven't gone to the lengths that I know some do of recording the readings and plotting them on a graph. I guess you would only do this if you had some specific goals in mind. The only minor down side is that the instruction manual says to keep the scales dry. This is pretty hard to do in a bathroom, but if you do splash them it seems to have no effect - at least so far - if you wipe them down when you notice the water. In conclusion, at the price I would thoroughly recommend these bathroom scales.
