    Exclamation Body Fat Monitor


    Interested in owner's feedback on the following two Body Fat Monitors:

    [ame="http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000FJQ48I"]Omron HBF-400 Body Fat Monitor and Scale[/ame]

    [ame="http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000FYZMYK"]Omron HBF-306C Fat Loss Monitor[/ame]

    I know there is always the caliper route, but prefer something like along these lines.

    My Gym uses the handheld one in the 2nd link. It's not bad, but my understanding is that it will give you a misleading reading if you are carrying the majority of your fat somewhere that isn't between the 2 conducting points - your left and right hand. So if you have a lot of fat around your gut, but your midsection is relatively lean, it may claim you are at say 13% BF when you are really around 17+

    For people that carry more weight in their legs/butt/lowerabs I think a BIA that reads from the feet may be more accurate (read: brutal)

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Anyone else have either of these two models?

    I also saw a Conair Model WW33D, but not sure how it compares.
