Features of the Product
The body fat percentage is measured based on the electric resistance and the personal data such as height, weight, age and gender.
The measured result are closely correlated with “underwater weighing method” and the DEXA (Dual Energy X-ray Absorbtiometry) method, which are said to be the standard measurements methods for measuring the body fat percentage
Body fat mass can be measured by simply holding the grip electrodes and pushing the Start button
Measurement is fast and simple
After setting the data, body fat mass can be measured by simply holding the grip electrodes and pushing the Start button. The measured results are displayed approximately 7 seconds after the Start screen is displayed.
The measured result based on body fat percentage and on BMI calculations are displayed alternately, as well as their interpretations
Large and clear displays

The conditions or circumstances NOT suitable for correct measurement:
If a measurement is made under the following physical conditions, the measured body fat percentage may differ significantly from the actual one because the water content in the body changes.
In some cases, the measured body fat percentage may differ too much from the actual body fat percentage. These exceptions are the people for who measurements may vary due to consistently changing amounts of water and tissue density within their bodies.
Recommendation for taking a measurement:
If the palms of your hands are dry or the temperature of your palms or the grip of the electrodes are extremely cool, stable measurement is impossible, which may lead to display error indication or inaccurate results.
