Good at home weight scale?

Hey guys, do you guys have any suggestions on good/great weight scales for home use? Are there big differences in quality? I'm ignorant when it comes to them.

Probably digital is what I'm looking for? I haven't had a scale for years at home. Growing up my parents bought those crappy Wal-Mart/Zellers ones that would break easily or that you would have to turn the dial to reset it as 0.....

Food weight scale or body weight scale?

I see these advertised and they look cool. https://www.withings.com/ca/en/body.

NOTE: that a digital body weight scale is all you need (to avoid dealing with taring manually). Features that measure body fat don't work correctly. The scale above has all kinds of wifi/smart features, which might help you if you're looking for an automated way to track your details. But a $25 digital scale from amazon might fit your needs just as well.

I got this scale from amazon and love it.
It comes with an app which connects to the scale via BT, it's really easy to use and keeps track of your weight so you can see the trend over the last few weeks to keep you on track.
I have those scales. Got them for free from the company. They were $29 just a couple of months ago. They also have the same scales under different brands on amazon(same picture, app, same scale) . These work. Not super accurate,but will do just fine for home use.
I use voice typing, expect mistakes...

I got the same scale, not sure about it's accuracy but it's very consistent. I put my scale away after each use but even if you don't, remember to calibrate it before every use.
