Updated on September 25, 2014

An instrument that determines human body weight, the accurate bathroom scale are a must-have if you are trying to gain or lose weight.

Almost everyone has established that they could sometimes be your biggest enemy. Till a few years back, there were only two types of scales: Analog and Digital scales.

I was quite surprised when I learned how far these tools have gone. These days scales for bathroom have a wide variety of functions.

What is even most amazing to me - couple of them are solar digital scales! Some could even register the intake of an additional weight of one cup of water.
