The OMRON BF511 Body Composition Monitor is a clinically validated hand to foot device that measures accurately 6 body metrics. Its precise 8-sensor Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis technology assures high consistency of readings.
BF511 is more than just a scale. This device can help you stay motivated when you track your diet or fitness progress or simply, as you make basic changes to your lifestyle - eating right and exercising more. You can monitor improvement of body weight, body fat percentage, resting metabolism and skeletal muscle percentage. These parameters will help you understand how efficiently your body is working and help you reach your fitness and weight loss goals.
Designed to be used by the whole family. It is suitable for everyday use starting from the age of six (for BMI and body fat control). Easy to use and built to last. The BF511 is the ideal fitness tool to use any time in the comfort of your own home. Available in two colours: turquoise or dark blue.

Weight is a perfect match with the scale at my doctors and is precise down to 0.2 lbs / 0.1kg.
Body fat, etc is very difficult to measure accurately with scales like these that rely on conductivity but with both the feet and hand sensors it has the best chance of accurate measurements. However, yesterday I had the opportunity to find out exactly how accurate these scales are. I had something called an DXA (or DEXA) scan which is a form of mini XRay that tells you exactly how many grams of fat, lean tissue and bone you have in each limb and AFAIK is the most accurate way of working out body composition short of an autopsy. PS: it's not a good idea to mess around with XRays for none critical conditons so this isn't a recommendation of DXA scanning but given I have had one it does tell us how accurate these scales are...
It'll probably be obvious from these numbers that I'm not fit (yet) so don't laugh - I'm working on it :)
Background info: Male, 34, Caucasian
Body Fat: 29.6% (Omron scales), 32.8% (DXA Scan)
Visceral Fat: 11% (Omron scales), 8.8% (DXA Scan)
Lean Mass: 33.6% (Omron scales), 63.0% (DXA Scan)
So, the body fat percentage for me at least was very accurate. The visceral fat was an overestimate but not by a huge amount. The Lean mass is miles off, however I think there's a difference in what's being measured here. I believe the Omron scales are estimating muscle whereas the DXA scan is measuring all lean tissue (ie: everything that isn't bone or muscle = organs, ligaments and muscle). Overall I'm very pleased with the accuracy and repeatability of these scales and for measuring relative changes in body composition they should be very helpful.
* High accuracy measuring weight and total body fat percentage.
* Decent measure of internal body fat (the really bad stuff).
* Simple to use - step on to get your weight, press the profile button on the handle to measure everything.
* 4 profiles/users
* Shows current readings and last readings for comparison
* Measures in kg and lbs to 0.2lb and 0.1kg accuracy
* Quick ~5 seconds for measurements
* AA batteries (included)
* 3 year warranty
* Only remembers last measurement (seperate memory for each profile/user) so need to keep a pad of paper to track long term changes
* Electrical conductivity measures can be heavily affected by water content so you really need to way at around the same time each day under the same conditions - ie: drinking water before measuring changes the results.
* Doesn't send results to phone/computer/whatever - personally I think this is an advantage as it's simple and does exactly what you need but some people really want an app on their phone *shrugs*.
Also, how can you say on the box that they're clinically accurate and then advise in the instructions not to use them for medical practice. Isn't that incredibly contradictory?
Give 'em a miss!
1. Always use on a solid surface, like tiles. Carpet or floorboards = inconsistency.
2. Always at the same time, e.g. 1st thing am before a shower.
3. Hold your arms out at 90 degrees and make that a consistent angle each day. This matters a lot for the % fat reading.
Weight measurement is spot on with auto calibration, checks out perfectly with other digital scales I have.
Would have been even better I found there was a Bluetooth facility to integrate with the Apple Health App, and provide the same info the app requires instead of me doing some simple maths.
