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 results are closely correlated with the “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.
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.
Large and clear displays
The easy to read large digital and graphic displays can be understood at a glance. The measured results based on body fat percentage and on BMI calculations are displayed alternately, as well as their interpretations.
The memory can store the personal data (height, weight, age and gender) of up to 9 people simultaneously.
