Hmm, this is an interesting item – I don’t know if I really WANT to know my body fat!
But for all you athletes who aren’t too scared to know the truth – this one’s for you!
The Tanita UM-060 Body Fat / Body Water Monitor uses Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA), the same accurate technology found in our professional body composition analyzers used by doctors, medical centers, professional athletic teams, fitness clubs, and personal trainers. Electrodes in the foot sensor pads send a low, safe signal through the body. The signal passes with less resistance through the fluids contained in muscle tissue, but encounters more resistance when passing through fat tissue, which contains little water. By using the impedance reading, gender, height, and weight, the scale can quickly and reliably calculate body fat and total body water percentages.
