Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Omron BF511 Family Body Composition Monitor - Blue (Personal Care)
I bought this item even though I had my doubts, since some reviewers claimed that it wasn't accurate enough.
Well, I have tried it daily for a week and I can say that it is as accurate as a medical-grade fat contents calliper! Every result was within 0.5% of each other, and within 1% of the result I got from my medical check up last week.
Very well recommended. Just make sure you follow the instructions to the letter... Especially the following:
1. Remember to let it calibrate to 0 when you first start it, so that your weight is accurate
2. Weigh yourself while holding the monitor close to your body
3. Once your weight is displayed, hold the monitor at arm's length in front of you (wrapping fingers around the metal pads as described)
4. Once the progress bar completes and shows your weight again you can step off and start checking all your results
