Whether you're looking to reduce, maintain or just monitor your body fat percentage, a reliable set of body fat scales can be a helpful tool for you and your family that goes beyond simply measuring weight in kilograms.
Body Mass Index (BMI) is often used by health professionals to assess whether a person is underweight, normal weight, overweight or obese. While BMI is a better indicator of health than weight alone, it's far from perfect. The BMI categories don't allow for very muscular individuals; a person with lots of lean muscle and low body fat will be heavy for their height and could be classed as overweight or obese. Similarly, some people may have a BMI that indicates they're healthy when in fact they have too much body fat and little lean tissue.
You should only use BMI as a general guide to your state of health. Accurate analysis of your body fat percentage, measured over time, is more useful.
Our test will let you know which scales are:
- the most accurate
- the easiest to use
- the most sensitive to changes in your BMI.
