Best bathroom scales to track your weight, body fat, muscle mass and more

For fitness and health, an accurate set of bathroom scales can be helpful to measure your progress

Yahoo Life's editors are committed to independently selecting wonderful products at great prices for you. We may receive a share from purchases made via links on this page. Pricing and availability are subject to change.

No matter your reason for stepping on the scale, there's one thing we can all agree on: the readings need to be accurate.

There are now many more options available in the scales section that aren't just limited to clunky mechanical models.

Most are digital, with glass plates and electronic screens, with some that can measure body fat, muscle mass, bone mass and more, and also be controlled through a smartphone, usually synced with an app.

Designed to be used barefoot, they are typically the most accurate measurement of weight you can find and for some, can be a useful measurement of fitness goals or an overall look at your health.
