Best bathroom scales
Best overall scale
Bing: Tanita HD-384 ($100)
The large platform and easy-to-read backlit display pleased testers. See your weight simultaneously in pounds, kilograms, and — for Anglophiles — stones.
Budget buy scale
Bing: Soehnle Solar Star ($50)
It's solar-powered and works well in low light, but was not quite as accurate as the Tanita.
Easiest to use scale
Bing: Conair/Weight Watchers WW97 ($70)
Testers liked this model's contours and were wowed by its ease of use. Weight, body fat, water content, and bone mass all appear on-screen at once.
Top performer scale
Bing: Escali USHM180G ($90, amazon.com)
A little more difficult to decode, but reliability made this a lab-test standout.
