Smart bathroom scales?

Does anyone use bathroom scales which analyse your body fat percentage? I'm thinking about buying some but don't know which to get or if they're any good.

Has anyone seen their body fat % decrease? I'd be interesting to see what peoples % has decreased by and over what period of time etc.

I used a machine at health centre that told me mine was 24% and i'm 5'6 and weigh 8st5lb. I wish i had known my percentage before i started my fitness routine 4 months ago, hence why i'd like to buy some scales so i can keep an eye on it. I'd like to get closer to 20%.

I use mine, but they're not good to rely on for bf%. I like mine because they connect to my phone and make a pretty graph and work out my bmi. Working out an accurate bf% is actually pretty hard. This page is pretty helpful.

Yes i brought some after i was dieting and excercising and my normal scales said that i had put on weight. I brought the smart scales and tracked for a month and although yes i had put on weight it turned out to be muscle mass so i was getting heavier however i looked more toned.
