Is this any good? delivery fee?

Dont know about delivery fee but these are very good. I have had a set for about a year and they work perfectly. Easy to use and setup. Battery seems to be lasting well and they dont scream at me to get off!!!!

Postage is £3.95 unless you order more items which takes the total to £20. After £20 is it free.

Have these, and they are ace.

I can also recommend these scales! Best ones I've ever used.

Nice find, hot deal:thumbsup:

However I don't need a pair of scales to tell me i'm fat I just use a mirror;-)

I think it was £7.49 or £9.99 in last October.

Hot deal, but I don't need a fat monitor to tell me im a fat b*stard.

What's everyone's % fat on their scales then? :-D

Pay me £12.99 and I'll oblige.:thumbsup:



The point about these scales is that the readout is between your feet.

TOTALLY useless if you need these scales!!


Readout needs to be about 2 feet further forward.

I've once bought a 20 pounds digital scale only to throw it to the bin, it couldn't reproduce the same weight ever, not reliable at all. Is this particular digital one is good you mean? The gf is using a 'normal' one but always whine about it not being so accurate.

You're not wrong there mate!:thumbsup:

I had a bodyfat monitor at home (not this version) which told me my bodyfat was 16.2% for about 3 years. Assumming this was right this is what I thought I was, I then asked my gym to measure it and it came out at 6.2%!!! And they then verified this with the calipers... So what I'm asking is can anyone tell me if these scales are accurate....

Have a set of these they are great

Just sent my mum into the local to get some of these, bargain ta.

I doubt your body fat was as low as 6.2% unless you are an athlete!

16.2% sounds about right!

Hmm 6.2% body fat means youre very skinny! 5% is the acosulte minimum that doctors recommend that you get to (assuming you're a bloke) As to your questions about if these are accurate, the way all of these scales work is never going to be as acccurate as the calipers ect as it works by measuring the impedence of the electrical current through your body, if you train hard then the muscles in your body are more dense than they are in a "normal" person and so give you a false reading. Hence why some scales have an "athlete" setting. Also your hydration levels ect can affect impedence and give you a false reading...

The best way to use scales like these is to keep a log of your body fat % and think of it in relative terms rather than absolute. It may say to are 16% body fat which is not correct but if in a week it says you are 15% and then 14% then you know you are are losing fat! :thumbsup:

Unfortunatley for me the closest sportsman I resemble is a darts player.

Also, consider these scales at argos

£5 more but they also measure your hydration levels which is useful to know (most people when they "diet" think they lose weight quickly, but actually dont realise its because they are getting dehydrated and then get demoralised when the weight stops dropping off so quickly)

I think I may be over hydrated, that's my excuse for my rapid weight gain anyway:whistling:

Thers ia cheaper one available at Morrisons @9.78. Not sure if this deal is available online.

At 6% bodyfat, you would either be on the verge of malnourished, a bodybuilder ready for competition or an athlete in peak condition, so dunno what to think as you haven't posted a picture of yourself for us to comment on.

The normal price for these is £9.99 and has been for most of last year. I think I posted it a couple of time in other threads. Nice to see this posted here again after the price has gone up 50%

As for this technology; it's bunk. Based on BMI, which is itself a joke. Get the callipers out if you want your fat % measured properly. As a pair of non-critical scales, they are reasonably stylish for a tenner, but not a deal at this price. Wait a bit, the price is bound to go back down again.

at 6.2% yourv skin would be almost like cellophane and every vein and sinew of muscle would be visable as there would be virtually zero fat to mask the leaness. a pro bodybuilder would diet and starve for 3 months to get there BF to this level . but if your a 6 foot 10 stone beanpole then there is a big possibility your in that range.

When I was at Uni, I was measured as 4% (using calipers) they redid it just to make sure. I would not say I was malnourished, but did sport most days and was 'fit'. I now(aged 50) weigh the same, but unfortunately would be more than 4% :-)
