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


For male:
Age 20-39 = 8.0 - 19.9
Age 40-59 = 11.0 - 21.9
Age 60-79 = 13.0 - 24.9

For female:
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


Resting Metabolism


The resting metabolism is the minimum level of calorie intake required for a human body to function.


Normal Skeletal Muscle Percentage


For male:
Age 18-39 = 33.3 - 39.3
Age 40-59 = 33.1 - 39.1
Age 60-79 = 32.9 - 38.9

For female:
Age 18-39 = 24.3 - 30.3
Age 40-59 = 24.1 - 30.1
Age 60-79 = 23.9 - 29.9


Body Age


Calculation of weight, body fat percentage and skeletal muscle percentage yields an indication to whether body age relates to the actual age.


Cons:


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.
