This monitor measures body condition by sending a very low current through your body - from arm to foot - and so detecting the amount of water in each tissue, also known as impedance.

Measuring Body Weight
For persons weighing less than 330 lbs.
You can switch settings between lb and kg.
Normal Body Fat Percentage
Age 20-39 = 8.0 - 19.9
Age 40-59 = 11.0 - 21.9
Age 60-79 = 13.0 - 24.9
Age 20-39 = 21.0 - 32.9
Age 40-59 = 23.0 - 33.9
Age 60-79 = 24.0 - 35.9
Normal Visceral Fat Level
Visceral fat level which is equal or smaller than 9.
This visceral fat is situated in the abdomen and surrounding vital organs. It can't be seen from outside of the body.
Body Mass Index - BMI
The Body Mass Index is calculated from a person's weight and height and is used as a screening tool to check a person's weight in relation to the height. The formula=
A: Multiply weight in pounds by 703
B: Multiply the height in inches by itself.
Divide A by B
The resting metabolism is the minimum level of calorie intake required for a human body to function.
Normal Skeletal Muscle Percentage
Age 18-39 = 33.3 - 39.3
Age 40-59 = 33.1 - 39.1
Age 60-79 = 32.9 - 38.9
Age 18-39 = 24.3 - 30.3
Age 40-59 = 24.1 - 30.1
Age 60-79 = 23.9 - 29.9
Calculation of weight, body fat percentage and skeletal muscle percentage yields an indication to whether body age relates to the actual age.
May be not as suitable for body builders.
This fitness monitor is not suitable for people with a pacemaker or other inplanted device, because of the low level electrical current of 50 kHz and less than 500 uA used by the sensing technology.
Shipping box dimensions are about 4 x 10 x 10 inches.
