The booklet DOES give you answers for 1, 2 and 4 location tests instantly without any complex math. (see P.S. at bottom.)
This is best used by taking measurements over a period of time and tracking changes. If your interest is simply to monitor your body composition over time for general health, once every one to three months is a good interval. If, on the other hand, you have a specific goal or are in an intensive nutrition/training cycle, you may wish to track once a week.
If you are looking to lose weight (by losing excess fat) ...measuring Lean Body Mass and Body Fat is the only way to insure you are not losing muscle and water.
Many diets cause massive losses of water and muscle (very low calorie and low carbohydrate diets for example)...leading to a quick regain of pounds at some point. If you are on a diet program, and nobody is measuring your Lean Body Mass and Body Fat, you simply do not know what your body is doing.
So you know my credentials, I have been involved in health and fitness for over 20 years as a Body Builder, Body Sculptor, Trainer, Consultant, Coach and many other positions in the field. I am currently the Director of Personal Success Now.
For the best accuracy with this...
You should have the same person take the measurements at the same time of day. You should take your body weight (needed to determine Lean Body Mass and Body Fat) on THE SAME SCALE at the same time of day every time.Read more ›
The caliper itself is well-built. As you can see in the picture, it has springs. This means you only have to worry about pinching in the correct spot in the correct away without having to worry about how much force you're applying, as with the Accumeasure calipers. The reason I docked a star is that the front jaws aren't perfectly aligned, meaning there's a lateral deviation of about a quarter inch. Since the jaws are pretty wide I don't think this negatively impacts the readings, but it still reflects poorly on the build quality. Other than that, it's a solid product.

Really high quality for the price! The book that comes with it is very helpful. I love that it has a spring so you don't have to guess if you're pinching too hard or not hard... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Brittany Williams
It is fairly basic. I grabbed my fat with the calipers and was immediately disappointed. But not by the calipers, by my fat fold! Read morePublished 3 months ago by Renee Sparrow
