    This product is awesome to have if you are really serious about losing weight the right way! It's not just about the pounds on the scale, it is truly about your percentage of body fat! Who cares how much you weigh! It's about whether or not you are ___ pounds and healthy or ___ pounds and obese. The cost was way less than what I thought it would be also! I highly recommend this product to anyone who is serious about becoming healthy and fit!

    I purchased this item to help me keep track of my process while dieting. I've found that knowing an approximate bodyfat percentage really helps while getting fit. For example: I have recently picked up weightlifting, and my weight loss has slowed. Through reviewing the change in my bodyfat percentage, though, I realized that I put on 2 lbs of muscle. This is a great product if you realize that the numbers aren't EXACT....they are very close, but you need to watch for a trend (dropping .2% a week for several weeks at a time, etc.)

    I've had this product for about 4.5years and it works great. I still have the original batteries. It is constructed well and is very accurate. It's simple to use once you get use too the interface. Just be sure you use it before you go work out or your results will be messed up. I highly recommend this product to anyone who is serious about monitoring their body fat either for weight loss, Maintaining proper body fat for runners, triathletes or bodybuilders. I use it monthly to make sure I'm STEADILY losing body-fat and while building muscle. I chart it on my notebook. Remember when one loses body-fat steadily( .5 - 1lb a week averaged over quarter) it is much better and more stable then losing a bunch of weight in a short period of time. Your body will think that it is always at the perfect weight and not think that it is starving.

    I like the features, but can you weigh yourself with this too?
    by AmyNicole
    • No, absolutely not. This device does not give you body weight, it only estimates % body fat, and calculates BMI based on the weight and height information you input in the unit. I have used this unit hundreds of time in the course of my profession. The description given here on the Walmart website gives the impression that it will allow you to take your weight, but it will not. You must have an accurate scale to find your weight. That weight is then input in this unit, along with other information from which body fat is estimated once you take a reading with the electrodes (silver pads on the handles) on this unit.

    • No, you can not weigh yourself with this product. You have to weigh separately and enter your weight into your profile, along with other personal data. Once you have entered all the data, you hold this analyzer with both hands straight in front of you. In less than 10 seconds you have a body fat and BMI reading.

    • unfortunately it doesn't guess your weight. You can find a weight scale instead that do have a bodyfat analyzer as an added feature.

    • The fat in your body has different electrical properties than your lean body mass. The analyzer passes a low electrical current through your body and determines your body fat percentage based on the resistance it encounters.
      by Reps4Jesus
      Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)
    • Basically yes. You input some info like height, weight, age, etc., hold the big silver pads on the handles exactly as indicated in the manual, and press the start button. In less than 10 seconds you have a body fat estimate, as well as BMI calculation. It does not tell you your body weight. You must know your body weight before using this unit. Hope that helps. The unit passes an extremely low level electrical current through your body to figure electrical resistance which is correlated to body fat. It is extremely safe (don't use if you have pacemaker or implanted devices).

    • This type of device measures bio-impedance; bodily resistance to electric current. The high the fat content, the higher the resistance. The handles serve as electrodes. A tiny electric current flows from one handle to one of your arms, through your body, out to the other arm, and finally reach the other handle. Then your body's resistance is calculated and converted to body fat.

    • I believe that it sends an electrical pulse through the body and measures the reaction time. I think the pulses move faster through muscle than fat. I remember reading that people with pace makers and pregnant women should not use this item.

    • Sends an electrical current through your body and measures resistance. Check wikipedia.

    • Yes, stand with your arms straight out in front of you, feet about shoulder width apart and lightly, but firmly hold the instrument in your hands. It will send a VERY light current (you will not feel it) through out your body and measure your fat content by bio impedance. Try it with the DietSafetyChecker.com to make sure you are losing fat and not muscle on your chosen diet
