bio-electrical impedance is quite unreliable and can fluctuate throughout the day
good price for just the scale though

These body fat scales are the biggest scam. Don't think by standing on a scale you can measure your body fat.

There are tests on these scales.. none were remotely accurate.

Buy the scale for weight. nothing more

I'm not 100% on this but I think it sends current through your body to measure body fat because fat and fat free mass have different resistance, density or something. That's why there are four metal pieces on the scale. The better ones also have a hand held piece to measure upper body fat. While these body fat scales aren't accurate, they can be used as an indicator of one's training progress, or at least whether one is lean or obese. I personally would get one with the hand held piece.

Honestly that design is atrocious. Also, does the App plug into HealthKit for iOS? Somehow I doubt it.

Got one. I was looking for a Bluetooth scale.

Yes, it might not be accurate. If you consistently use it the same time, ie every morning after going to the bathroom, it can provide a good trend on your workout and eating plans.

I agree with you but the main thing you should be looking for is the trend. There's no really accurate way of measuring body fat, (DEXA, floatation methods, bio impedance, calipers) all give vastly different results. The only true way to accurately measure it is autopsy but that's not practical for anyone who likes to live.

Exactly. It's a 14 dollar scale. I doubt the weight measuring is even accurate.

Just a pet peeve, i hear people running around saying they're 9 percent body fat or 15 percent. Ask how did they test, jumped on a scale.

People always take the narrative which makes them look better. If a scale says i'm 20 percent, the other says 25 percent, chances are the person will tell others they're 20 percent body fat.

You're getting what you're paying for.

Even the very best body fat scales, such as my Withings (now Nokia), can be wildly inaccurate for that measurement depending on body type.

If this thing is within 5 or 10 pounds, I will be surprised.

It is not a scam. It just use how well your body conduct electricity to calculate your body fat based on average.

It is not exactly how much body fat you have.

Again it would not be grossly wrong on weights. Ie. You are 200 lb but the scale says your are only 150. Really does it matter if you are plus of minus 5lb? As long as it consistent in its errors? Ie trends.

Weights fluctuate due to water retention. If you just want something to track your health and make sure you are making the right progress, this is fine. No need to spend on pricey scale.

If you are a doctor and need to measure your patients, you should not be using this.

Cheap scales often are very inconsistent in their measurements. 150 one minute, 145 or 155 the next.

While I don't have that same exact scale I purchased this one not too long ago:
https://www.amazon.ca/Bluetooth-Android ... B01FHELB56

Came to a little under $50 with taxes and shipping. A colleague of mine had one and they compared it to another more expensive model from a reputable company and all the results were very close. When I received it I compared it to my old fairly expensive body weight scale only and the results were spot on.

I'm not saying that the results for everything are 100% accurate but they don't wildly fluctuate day by day so they seem good enough to me to look at the trend.
