Fat Track II

I bought a Fat Track II electronic BF caliper. So far I can’t get two readings within 2% of each other. I suppose I can wait for Jay’s skinfold article but I was just wondering if anyone else has one of these and what they think of them. I also need a scale since the one at the gym is always going out of calibration. I wouldn’t mind spinging for a Tanita but I have the same questions about those too. The actual BF% isn’t important as long as the changes shown are consistant. Is the weight measuring part of the scale accurate? I used to think that the primary function of a device wasn’t optional but I’ve seen more than a few products where that is indeed the case. I don’t want to buy another one.
