I bought this product and it is nice, but I ended up buying the Slim Guide Skinfold Caliper instead because it is easier to use. With the Accu-Measure Body Fat Caliper you have to squeeze with your hand until the side plastic piece touches the caliper; But with the Slim Guide Skinfold Caliper you simply place it around your fat and the spring tension squeezes the fat at the same pressure amount every time automatically.

I've owned and used the same caliper for many years now and it's always been quite accurate. The reason I know it's been accurate is because in the past, I paid good money for three (3) other methods of analyzing my body fat and they always showed the same readings as my Accu-Measure Body Fat Caliper...always!

This product has served me well, held up to years of use and far exceeds the term 'cost effective'. I highly recommend it.

I'm a fitness professional and I have a Slim Guide caliper which I really love. However for testing myself I found that sometimes it is a bit more awkward taking my own readings. The Accu-Measure is really ideal for doing this because it has a slider on it that moves to the final measurement. This way I'm not having to contort my body trying to take the reading.

While it looks somewhat flimsy, so far the Accu-measure seems durable enough for home use. I had actually purchased one for my son earlier in the year because he needed an inexpensive caliper for a nutrition class he was taking at his University. He had good things to say about the Accu-measure so I decided to buy one for myself for my personal caliper testing.

I will say that the 'single site' test is probably not a very reliable indicator of actual body-fat. I'd recommend using at least a 3 site test (and there are tons of free online calculators for the Jackson/Pollock 3 site test).Still, even a one site test will still show relative differences so it can still be useful. Just be aware that males and females tend to store fat in different places and therefore have a different body fat percentage overall.

This item is easy to use with one hand and seems to provide accurate results (a trainer at the gym used more expensive looking calipers that returned a similar measurement).

It functions by pulling the skin fold 1 inch above your right hip point. You set the slide measurement indicator at a high setting, then squeeze the caliper on the inner part of the skin fold until the left secondary arm clicks into the left primary arm of the caliper. You compare the indicated mm measurement against the included chart and you get your body fat percentage.

This product was exactly what I was looking for. The instructions can be a little hard to follow at first, but if you test it out a few times it will make sense.

Considering that this piece of plastic costs so little, I didn't have high expectations for it. However, I did hope that it would, at the very least, be reasonably accurate, and somewhat functional.

Hopes dashed. The weak plastic handle flexes a great deal before the indicator arm (for lack of a better term) snaps into place. This system is supposed to see that every measurement is taken with the same force. But the plastic arm flexes so much that the reading is often zero -- obviously incorrect.

Because of this simple fact, this caliper is NOT FUNCTIONAL. I had thought that this could be operator error, that I would eventually become accustomed to taking these measurements, and would thus improve with practice. Not the case. Look elsewhere if you seek a functional caliper.

Product does what it is supposed to do and is very affordable. The only thing I did not like was that the feel for the click was negligible and so it is easy to over squeeze the calipers for a wrong reading. It takes visual inspection to see the "click" rather than feel it. Because of this, it is hard and cumbersome to use on yourself without the assistance of a partner. Otherwise, it is accurate and affordable. If this review assisted you in making a decision, please give it a helpful vote.

Ok so.. first I started with an electrical impedance scale that measures body fat through your feet. What a piece of crap! The readings mine as well been a stock price they were so all over the board. The fat % of electrical impedance is completely useless and unreliable.

So then I went to my local body building protien shop and they had one set of calipers which is electronic kind of.. it doesn't use impedance.. it measures like these but has a digital screen that tells you the body fat % so you don't have to calculate. I paid like $35 for them. These were better but I was still getting readings that fluctuated 1-3% on body fat. This is because there is a button that senses pressure to finalize a reading and basically the sensitivity of that button isn't all that great. These do work pretty well and are WAY more accurate than my first scale.

So then I said, well screw it for a few bucks I could try these simple calipers, use both and compare and maybe average them to get an accurate measure.

To my amaze there is no reason to even do that because these are the most accurate, hands down. I can measure my body fat 3 times in a row and get the same body fat %. The other two devices fluctuate, these don't.

Sometimes simple is the best and this is one of those cases. If you want to measure your body fat accurately, get these.

Skip the springs, skip the electric devices and keep it simple!

Having an accurate reading was paramount for me because I want to track my week over week progress. It helps me keep motivated in the gym and these do the trick!

Also, they are much more durable and compact than expected.

Highly Recommended!
