38% off Omron Body Fat Monitor and Scale
This scale is great. Once you calibrate it, it''s easy-peasey. It was a recommendation from a friend and she loves it too. I would highly reccomend this product!
Accurate and easy to use
I received the scale on time and perfectly wrapped. It comes with batteries and if you read the manual its pretty straight forward to create the user profiles. Four user profiles are available to save, but anyone can easily input their info to get accurate body fat and BMI ratings.
Body Fat Monitors: Omron Body Fat Monitor with Scale
I purchased this unit because of the excellent reputation of the manufacturer and because of the product features. When I received it, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it looks much better than the picture represents. Although the design is simple, the fit & finish details give it the appearance of a finely-crafted instrument. And it is. I recently had my body fat percentage tested at a health fair and the results were the same as the Omron''s. The weight registered matches my Health-o-Meter scale, but the Omron is a lot more consistent. The HBF-400 isn''t perfect - if I place my feet off-center or if I shift my weight toward my heels or toes, it may register a slightly different reading. However, if I take the effort to weigh myself the same way each time, the readings are remarkably accurate. Highly recommended.
Omron HBF-400 Body Fat Monitor and Scale » Living Sense
The weight display measures weight up to 330 pounds in .2-pound increments, while body fat percentage can be measured from 5 to 60 percent in .1 percent increments.
One of the keys to weight loss and management is tracking your body mass index, or BMI. The HBF-400 rates your BMI from 7.0 to 90.0 in .1 increments. BMI is classified at three levels: underweight, normal, overweight, and obese.
Made for Just about Everyone Bioelectrical Impedance (BI) is considered one of the most accurate and accessible methods of screening body fat. Muscles, blood vessels and bones are body tissues having a high water content that conduct electricity easily. Body fat is tissue that has little electric conductivity. The monitor sends an extremely weak electrical current through your body to determine the amount of fat tissue. The weak electrical current is not felt while operating the Body Fat Analyzer. The monitor is calculated by a formula that includes five factors; electric resistance, height, weight, age and gender. Visceral fat is located around the organs. Too much visceral fat is thought to be closely linked to increased level of fat in the bloodstream, which can lead to common conditions such as high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Sedentary life style causes excess visceral fat, and exercise can reduce it quicker than subcutaneous fat (fat located under skin). Skeletal muscle is muscle attached to the bones that is used to move the body. If you do weight loss without exercise, you may lose skeletal muscle. Skeletal muscle is important to maintain your resting metabolism as well as your functionality. Monitoring skeletal muscle during weight loss is key to avoid weight rebound in the future.
