Re: Tanita Body Fat Scale
Save your money. Body fat scales that claim to measure resistance in your feet are completely inaccurate and you can get a better number by standing nude in front of an honest person.
The gold standard is underwater weighing but you need special equipment and training. Second best is a TRAINED person with experiece with calipers...you cannot do it yourself.
Forget gym trainers, infa-red readers, calipers in untrained hands and any electrical resistance method...waste of time and money.
Some online approximations are worth your time IF they account for frame size by including wrist, ankle, or pelvic size measurements. Not great results but not too bad either.
