Digital scales use the strain gauge load cell to convert the force of a given weight to an electric signal. Unlike analog scales, digital ones give weights as an instant digital readout.
Digital scales are available for both body weight measurements and for use in the kitchen. Many of the body weight measurement digital scales on the market include various other options, which include body fat measurement, muscle mass, lean mass, BMI and water ratio. Other features of a digital bathroom scale may include fitness tracking, cloud storage and smartphone integration for those who want to monitor their body weight remotely.
