Anyone have one of these/provide insight? I see no reviews on most sites…
Let’s check out this write up asking the question “Body fat scales. Do they really work?”
This is a great price for a Body Fat scale. Most Body Fat scales are generalized readings at best. I’ve tested cheaper ones in the past against the $200-300 models at my gym and the readings are different, but only within a percent. Neither were as accurate at calculating Body Fat as a good ol’ fashioned caliper.
My advice would be to spend as little as possible on a scale and this one fits the bill.
Anybody know the max weight?
i want to know that too. what’s the max?
BMI is body mass index, there is no inconsistency possible and does not require any calipers. you just punch in your numbers on any calculator you can find online, or alternatively divide your weight by height in the same measurement system (metric/imperial).
what you are thinking of is BF, or body fat%. i’ll let other people chime in on how “accurate” those can be measured at home, with a scale.
For those moments when knowing how much weight you’ve gained over the holiday season isn’t quite depressing enough…
Haha…bmi is nothing but inconsistent. Standing 6’3" and a muscular 260lbs has me listed as morbidly obese according to BMI. Using other methods let’s you actually account for things that make a difference such as gender and body composition.
As for the product, I’ve never used this model - but they can definitely be hit or miss on the numbers. Given the price and few reviews though, this would be a perfect one to enter the advanced scale realm with in my opinion.
I don’t need this thing to tell me I’m fat,I have a wife and she is always on the job.
Unless you are doing scientific research, this type of scale (never used this brand,though) has given me a good relative measure of body fat. I used one while body building and again more recently while trying to lose weight (fat). The body fat % number on the scale seemed to match what I could see in the mirror. Hope this helps.
If I get something that goes from zero to 200+ in mere seconds it will have four wheels and an atrocious insurance bill…
I want to be clear, is this also a weight scale?
In my experience, body fat analyzers that use the feet to pass the current are terribly inaccurate. The best unit I’ve found that uses that method to estimate body fat percentage is the Omron handheld model (one of which is here: http://www.amazon.com/Omron-Monitor-model-HBF-306C-Black/dp/B000FYZMYK). The thing to remember about any of these items that use this method is that their readings can be thrown off by any number of things, including hydration level, medications, hormone levels, blood sugar levels, and caffeine, among other things. They do have different settings for “athletic” and “non-athletic” to allow for differences in muscle density, but you have to wonder how sensitive that is. I would suggest anyone who wants to use these should think of it as more of a ballpark figure than something exact.
You are correct. I made a mistake and used the wrong term. I meant Body Fat, not BMI.
Yeah i’m curious too.
