Escali Body Fat Calculators

body fat calculatorsEscali is a prominent producer of a variety of home and professional scales, including kitchen scales and bathroom body fat calculators. You can read more at the company website. (You can also read about the company at the Digital Scales website.)

The very stylish Escali High-Capacity Bathroom Scale with Body Fat/Body Water Monitoring has proven particularly popular. It was in fourth position in my own customer satisfaction survey of the best body fat calculator, based on Amazon.com reviews. At the time of writing it had received 75 reviews, with a very high 84% of these being four-star or five-star reviews.

It was also, at the time of writing, ranked fourth in the Amazon.com Bestsellers in Digital Scales rankings (the figures change hourly).

Here is a brief product description:

Escali’s BFBW200 bathroom scale features advanced digital weighing technology that provides a high-tech analysis of the fitness level of the user. This scale measures percentage of body fat, body water, and weight for up to ten individual users.

With a large capacity of 440 pounds (200 kilograms), it uses bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) based on a person's height and weight and accurately measures in 0.2-pound or 0.1-kilogram increments.

The three-button scale, with a user mode for male or female, is easy to operate and features a high-quality, impact-resistant tempered glass platform. Two lithium batteries are included. The scale measures 8-1/2 inches by 5-1/2 inches by 3-/4-inch.

Here is an excerpt from an Amazon.com five-star review:

The scale was very accurate and is as solid as a rock. I come from a family where we are all pretty heavy and this scale held us up with ease. You can even stand on it with one foot and it won't budge. It's nice to see the body fat and water readings and they are accurate for the average user. Any body builder would probably get this measured at the doctor or with his/her physical trainer so I wouldn't skip this purchase just because you don't think the fat/water readings will be accurate.

For such a quality product I can't believe the price. It would be foolish of you to pass up this product if you are looking to save a few bucks with something cheap.

And a two-star review:

Depending on how you stand on the scale, and how level your floors are, it can give fluctuating numbers. I'll sometimes need to step on the scale 3-4 separate times in order to get matching readings. I'm looking to replace mine. Will probably spend a little more and go with Tanita.
