Product Info from J&R:
There are many stories about being overweight. Weight is only one factor. Excess body fat can be extremely important. Sometimes the way fat accumulates and is distributed is critical. A body fat analyzer is a good health accessory.
There are many indicators that point to levels of wellness. Weight is within your control if you have a weight scale. Body fat percentage is another indicator. Each indicator is important. Standard body weight scales provide a measure of total weight, but don't determine the lean-to-fat ratio of that weight. Standing on most scales can tell you only if you weigh more than the average person, but not if that weight is fat or muscle. Based only on scale weight, a 250-pound athlete with 8% body fat may be considered "overweight" by a typical weight chart. Such charts are not a good indication of ideal body weight for general health or for athletic performance. The ideal weight and fat-lean ratio varies considerably for men and women and by age, but the minimum percent of body fat considered safe for good health is 5 percent for males and 12% for females. The average adult body fat is closer to 15 to 18% for men and 22 to 25% for women. Age and activity are additional factors.
Measurement of body fat composition is the key to long-term exercise success. The Omron hand held body fat analyzer is an affordable and easy way to measure body fat in the privacy of your own home. After inputting the data, a measurement can be started by simply holding the grip electrodes and pressing the START button.
