But much as we hate them, most of us have bathroom scales and use them (semi) regularly. So take the dread out of your weigh-ins with a cool, clever, or creative bathroom scale; even if the numbers are unsatisfactory, you’ll still love using it. And maybe it will even motivate you to step on it more often!

Sometimes a fun color or luxe finish is enough to entice you to use your scale:

But a high-tech or unusual scale is more likely to get you to step on it frequently. Check these out (many are concepts, but too cool to leave out):
