Shitty digital scales are less accurate, but the difference is that analog scale has a limit to how accurate it can be while a digital scale has almost no limit. For instance at my lab we have a fairly standard scale to weight chemicals it goes to the 4th decimal of a gram, when you measure stuff that low you need to seal off the scale so that pressure differences (gas movement, vibrations etc) dosen't interfere.

I think a big reason why they use analog scales is because they are always reliable and also because of tradition from the old boxing days, not because they necessarily are more accurate.

Not sure about which is more accurate.

But I like the traditional scale.

surely all they would need is like a 20lb weight or something to check if the digital scales are accurate. I dunno, i just thought they would have digital all the time by now, i hate when they go to a new place in the states and the guy takes like 5 mins to do each persons weight.

Yeah I agree, they have a fancy digital scale at my gym that is accurate to the tenth of a pound. Hundreds of people get on it every day, if it's up or down you just hit tare before you step on it. The technology nowadays really has no error and if there was you'd instantly know because most fighters know exactly what they are when they walk out there.

This is a really good point. My thinking is it's SUPER HOT out there and people don't want to be waiting around and get agitated. They want the weigh ins done as efficiently as possible.
