Hope this is the right forum.

what's an accurate scale? Digital...analog? Don't want to spend too much. :D
Don't need anything fancy. Just need to measure weight. Don't care about measuring bf%

As long as the scale gives you consistent readings then you should be fine. Most every scale will give me a different measurement (usually of by a pound or two), and this is the reason that you should use the same scale each time you weigh. Accuracy is not as important as consistency:)

With that being said I would recommend just buying an inexpensive analog scale, and if you feel like spending more money you could buy a scale with a digital readout that will give you half pound measurements.

I bought a decent digital scale at target for $20. If thats too much, i saw an analog one at walmart for $6.
