While having a pair of body fat scales is helpful to any fitness program, if the scales you pick are too complicated or impossible to read, they’ll provide very little benefit. For most people, simplicity is best. Many scales sync wirelessly with various apps and allow you to monitor progress as you lower your weight and body fat. Regardless of which scales you choose, make sure they come with a complete set of detailed instructions, as many monitor a number of other factors too. Some of those other data include muscle mass, BMI, BMR, bone mass, protein, skeletal muscle and other data. As far as the display is concerned, for many who use the scales first thing in the morning before they even put on their glasses, large displays are simply handier than small ones. Also, backlit displays are often easier to read than more conventional ones.
