Best Scales for Calculating Body Fat

calculating body fatThe best scale for calculating body fat percentage is of course the one that does just what you need. And as technology continues to advance - while prices fall - you can nowadays find many excellent body fat scales and at very reasonable prices. Finding the one that performs to your requirements should not be too difficult.

Here, to guide you, are introductions to the five best body fat scales, as judged by customer reviews at Amazon.com. (For details of the criteria used, see Helping You Find the Best Body Fat Scale.)

1. Withings WiFi Body Scale - Measures fat mass, BMI and sends data via Wifi (picture) - not cheap, but gives you the ability to transmit data wirelessly to the internet and perform all kinds of analysis. Ultra-stylish. At the time of writing an amazing 17 out of 18 Amazon.com customer reviews rate it five stars.

2. Omron HBF-306 Body Fat Analyzer - Omron Healthcare does not make many body fat monitors, but the Omron HBF-306 (also sold as the Omron HBF-306C) is regularly one of the top sellers among these devices. It is a hand-held monitor, and the 306C version sells for as little as $25.

3. Tanita UM-080 Scale with Body Fat and Body Water Monitor - Tanita is the leader in body fat scales, continually developing new and innovative models. The UM-080 is actually not one of its best sellers, yet of all the many Tanita monitors it has the highest satisfaction rating among Amazon.com reviewers.

4. Escali High-Capacity Bathroom Scale with Body Fat/Body Water Monitoring - Escali does not have many body fat scales on the market, but this good-looking model is a top seller, and has a high satisfaction rating.

5. Omron HBF-514C Full Body Sensor Body Fat and Body Composition Monitor - this upmarket model from Omron Healthcare uses six sensors and claims to be as accurate as professional medical devices. It has a list price of $109.99, but you should be able to buy it online for under $75.
