Wouldn't trust the BF measurements on these at all, never accurate.

^^^ This.

Biometric impedence is horrendously inaccurate. Results will change daily. Other factors affect the 'readings'.

If you want accurate %bodyfat readings, you have 4 options...

1 - Look in a mirror (no, really...)
2 - Have a body MRI scan
3 - Underwater weighing
4 - Get somone who knows their sh.1t to do skinfold caliper readings & calculations.

I've been on a big ermm "fix myself" drive since Sept\Oct and have lost over 30kg so far and one of the things I've been very careful in sticking to is only get progressed checked periodically and as consistently as poss, AT the moment it's just weight and waist at my doctor's surgery by the nurse once a month. I'd have like to have had the other stuff you've listed here done from the beginning (cos I like data!) but have tried to keep things simple.

I might ask at docs if they could poss messure me up in more details now I'm at half-way point so progress is (naturally) getting tougher and more complicated to keep up.

Thx for the info dragon

Anyone know what batteries it uses ?

Hi - been using this for a while now and pleased with it - it shows Kg/ Stones/ Lbs per user preferences. Only downside is that I seem to have to turn it off, then on and instantly select user, to be able to select a user at all. I think its likely fairly inaccurate, but I find its been pretty consistant over the weeks on the numbers with me.

Just bought one of these ALDI scales and I'm taking it back.
1.) It defaults to imperial on switch-on even though I've set my requirements to metric.
2.) It does not store any readings: once the screen turns off the readings are lost. Must I weigh myself with a pen and paper to hand while trying to peer at a scale two metres away (which then switches off in about five seconds before you step off the scales)?
3.) The kcalorie figure is the value required to maintain your existing weight. This is pointless if you are trying to lose weight. BMR would be more useful.
4.) t At switch-on the scale defaults to the last person entered. If you are the first person out of twelve you have press the down arrow eleven times before you can weigh yourself. There is enough space to incorporate twelve buttons.
