Omron Handheld Body Fat Analyzer Review
Body Fat measuring scales are deemed essential for fitness enthusiasts, athletes and anyone else in general who is trying to keep a track of their health. This article is about a hand held body fat analyzer, by Omron, the Omron Body Fat Analyzer.
The Omron Handheld Body Fat Analyzer can be said to be the easiest way to determine your body fat. Coming in a sleek, portable design, the device works by the sensors in the grip on the sides called grip electrodes. Before you start to estimate your body fat, the device would ask you to enter your personal information. You are required to set in your height, weight, age, and gender, and if you are an athlete or normal person. To determine that, you will be required to calculate your FIT, which can easily be done through a formula given in the manual. If your FIT calculation is above 60, you will need to select the athlete mode.
Once this information is complete, you are good to go. Now you just have to stand with your feet slightly apart, hold the electrodes at a 90 degree angle with you arms straight in front of you. And that is literally it! You just have to press the ready and start button, and the Omron Body Fat Analyzer will give you your result in just 7 seconds! Amazing, is not it?
The device works on two AAA batteries that are to be inserted at the back and run for a whole year. Which makes the running and maintenance cost to almost zero. And the best part is that multiple people can use the Omron Body Fat Analyzer as it can store information for nine people, which means you do not have to enter your data every time you use it, making the device a hassle free one. This is where the factor of convenience comes in. Although these things are very small and negligible but it counts when we talk about providing quality service to customers. Using the Bioelectrical Impendence method, the device calculates your body composition and mass, giving the result in terms of four ranges: low, normal, high and very high. It calculates these ranges in accordance with the BMI (Body Mass Index) method. Your body fat percentage and the body mass index is shown at the same time, on the very easy to see, large display right in front of the electrodes. The Omron Body Fat Analyzer also indicates the Basal Metabolic Rate, and comes with a pictorial representation of your body type, which will help you understand your body better so you can move towards you fitness goals quicker.
The accuracy of the Omron Body Fat Analyzer is assured by the fact that it uses the “hydroensitometry”, also known as underwater weighing method to evaluate body composition. The company has researched and collected date of people from 10 years to 80 years of age, which says a lot about their dedication to give you the best results. A body fat monitor is an essential tool in your journey of fitness, as it can measure the changes in your body composition and fat mass over time, something that a regular weighing scale largely ignores. The Omron Body Fat Analyzer takes care of this problem, and gives you an easy to use device that is not very bulky in size, nor intimidating. Of course the readings change because of the constant flux in the body density and body fluidity, but that does not render the device useless and inaccurate, rather it makes you aware of the changes you are facing. The device comes with a manual that lets you know when and how hydration levels etc can affect the readings, which is great for beginners and experts alike. If you are dubious about the reading, you can do it multiple times, since it is so easy to do, and not the average.
Omron Body Fat Analyzer comes with a warranty of one year, in case the device needs any kind of repair, which will be done free of charge under normal use. To sum up, this analyzer is a great investment: it is portable, easy to use with great storage space. And it is not even super expensive to begin with. So go ahead and make that purchase, you need it! You will thank us for life!
