Accurate bf measurements
I need some help on this. Iím trying to figure out exactly what my bf% is. I have a smart scale that says 21%. I have bf calipers that through one method says Iím 11% and another says Iím 29% bf which I know is way to high. I can see my abs without flexing but I know Iím not as low as 11%. Does anybody know a relatively cheap way to figure out exactly what bf% is??? Thanks in advance.

I also have an eat smart scale, which I think uses electrical response measured through the feet and based on other inputs lile gender and age gives a pretty close guess. It tralxs well, but I know the % changes are important and have good precision, despite the fact it's perhaps not centrally accurate.
But if your profile photo is current you are probably in the 11-14% range?
Wierd cause my eat smart scale I think matches other methods like the calipers you mentioned fairly well.

My profile picture isnít current but yes I am right there. This is my current bf in this pictures and itís hard to believe Iím as high as 21% but maybe Iím wrong.

Iím on a andro/s4/yk11 cut right now. Been just about a month on that. I was keto for 2 months prior and have went from 24% bf to whatever Iím at now.. trying to figure that out. Best cut I have ever been on.

Skinfold analysis if done by a professional has roughly 3.5% error.
Your scale uses Bioelectrical Impedance and has an error of 2.7-6.3%.
Clean off your smart scale with a wet paper towel and clean your feet off with a wet paper towel. Allow to dry and then measure.
