I have seen body fat scales at Bed, Bath & Beyond and other places like that. Are they accurate at measuring body fat? I have had the 'pinch' test done at my gym, so I know my starting point, but I'd like to be able to check in every 4 weeks or so without having to set up a meeting with a trainer to get pinched again. I'll do that at the end of the 12 weeks, but in between, I was thinking I might get one of those scales.
Any thoughts on their accuracy? Any brands you'd recommend specifically?
My experience is that they are consistent, though not real accurate. Mine is higher than actual. So if you know your true % going in, then you can use the scale to track your progress.
yeh, I like mine from BEd, bath, Beyond. I don't think it's entirely accurate, but if you use it the same time each weigh-in with the same hydration/eating conditions, I think it's good for comparing readings from time to time.
