After tons of review readings I settled on this scale because it seemed to carry the most accuracy. It's been three months now and it reads reliably. All of these types of scales have some kind of algorithm that calculates the variables, but this one seems to have a more pronounced skew between the genders. I created two user profiles with only the gender varying and it was ridiculous how some of the readings changed, especially visceral fat. The other thing you want to be careful of is how high up you hold the sensors while taking the initial weight. The scale is sensitive and any slight shift or lift can throw off the numbers. On the whole it's a good machine with lots of options but the same limitations as many of the rest.
I am glad I ordered the Omron Full-body sensor. I received bits and pieces of information from my Dr. visits telling me to lose weight due to my body mass index not fitting my height and weight measurements. Now I can see the changes of my fat reserves going down and my muscle mass increasing as I lose weight. I am 60 years old and the Omrons first measurement showed my age as 62. Since I started my weight loss journey at 195 lbs. now at 183 lbs. I can see my progress every time I step on the Omron Full-Body sensor. My muscle mass % is higher and my fat % is lower plus my age measurement matches my real age which in itself is a great feeling. The manual you receive with the Omron explains the Body index numbers and how to use this number to lower your calorie intake so you can start losing weight but keep the needed amount of calories to keep you body healthy. It's all there in the manual. But thanks to my Herbalife coaches they also use the Omron and can help me keep on track with proper nutrition. Thank You Omron, Robert Telfer
When the scale arrived for the first time and I unpacked it, I was very surprised on how sleek and thin it was compared to my old one. I've had my old scale for over 8 years now, but I decided I finally needed a new one. This one is very modern and works excellently. It saves your weight profile and even tells you the body mass, water weight and muscle weight. This is a great addition to any home, especially those who are trying to lose weight and need to make sure what exactly they lost. I love my Bowflex Weight Scale!
