Here is a product description for the Omron HBF-510W:
The Full Body Sensor Body Fat and Composition Monitor and Scale is a breakthrough device to measure your body composition at home.

It uses 6 advanced sensors; 2 for your hands and 4 for your feet. Clinically proven to be as accurate as expensive medical devices professionals use.
It is difficult to find on the internet any Omron body fat analyzer review that is independent and objective. However, Amazon.com provides numerous customer reviews, and these can provide some excellent guidance for potential purchasers, as well as demonstrating the popularity of the Omron body fat monitor range.
The Omron HBF-510W has attracted 33 customer reviews at the time of writing, with 24 of these four-star or five-star reviews.
Here is one:
Prior to purchasing this scale, I owned an earlier-generation Tanita, which had the footpads only. The Omron HBF-510W is definitely an improvement in accuracy. The body fat % measurements with the handheld sensor are quite close to values that I get with caliper measurements.
I really like this scale. It's definitely a very good scale with body fat analysis, but it has one great feature that I think makes it wonderful. And that is the fact that you use the handle extension to read your results. This makes it A LOT easier to use for older folks, folks that have mobility issues, and folks with poor vision. It is SO much easier than bending over to push buttons and get read outs. LOVE IT!
Even for a person without any disabilities or issues, it's simply much easier to use the buttons without having to pick up the scale or bend over to use it.
