ANSWERS

  1. Body fat scales measures body fat and muscle percentages: TRUE
    They measures body fat, muscle percentages, and much more! How is it possible? Body fat scales send a small and completely harmless electrical current through your body. The electrical current passes more quickly through fat free tissue like muscle than it does through fat. The amount of resistance to the electrical current relates to how much fat-free mass a person has and their body density.
  2. Every individual needs their own body fat scale to keep the scale working properly: FALSE
    The Starfrit Balance body fat scales can memorize data of up to 12 different users!
  3. The recommended daily calorie intake per person is indicated on the body fat scale: TRUE
    Based on the analysis of our height, weight, age and gender, the body fat scale calculates your daily energy requirements (normal conditions) and can be used as a helpful tool to control your calorie intake and control your weight.
  4. You don’t heed to remove your shoes when using the body fat scale: FALSE
    It is important to remove your shoes and socks before stepping on the scale especially when you are using the scale in body analysis weighing mode. Make sure that your feet are well positioned on the metallic sensors otherwise the scale will not be able to determine your body composition.
  5. A bathroom scale can be used on any surface, from carpet to ceramic: FALSE
    Scale must always be placed on a hard and flat surface. Avoid carpets or uneven surfaces to get an accurate reading on the scale.
  6. A body fat scale enables you to check if you hydration level is adequate and if you are drinking enough liquids every day: TRUE
    The body fat scale measures the optimal hydration percentage you should have according to the height, weight, age and gender corresponding to your profile entered in the scale.
  7. You have to be careful not to get an electric shock yourself when using a body fat scale: FALSE
    The body analysis weighing mode, called Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA), which is used by this scale, determines your body fat proportion by transferring a harmless signal all the way through your body. Although it’s appropriate for most individuals, it should be avoided if you are pregnant, have symptoms of edema, are on a dialysis treatment or if you use a heart pacemaker.
  8. It’s important to input basic information on your age and height before you use the body fat scale: TRUE
    Because the body fat scale uses basic information such as age, gender and height to calculate the optimal body mass index and other helpful information, it’s important to input the data in a profile before the first use to get adequate measurements.
  9. A body fat scale does not differentiate between two individuals who weight the same but have a different physical shape: FALSE
    Two individuals can have the same height, age, gender and weight but can have different results on the body fat scale as their body mass, bone mass and body fat can be very different. Each person is different!
  10. A body fat scale retails for over one hundred dollars because of its complexity: FALSE
    Starfrit Balance body fat scales retail starting at $39.99 at major retailers and online. They are quite affordable, try them!
