Measure body fat percentage accurately and privately. Easy to do by yourself!
One site measurement. Just make sure measurement slide is all the way to right, then pinch.
Pinch until you hear the 'click'
The 'ball in socket' produces an audible 'click' that tells you when to stop pinching.
The measurement slide stops and holds at your result, so you can release the caliper and read it easily.
The Accu-Measure is manufactured with durable Delrin plastic in the USA!
A high-grade polymer, Delrin, enables our Personal Body Fat Testers to last through thousands of uses. AccuFitness stands behind its accuracy, durability, and reliability with an unconditional lifetime guarantee. Other generic calipers are made from ABS plastic, which is flimsy and prone to snapping.

While standing, firmly pinch the suprailliac skinfold(approxzimately one inch above the right hipbone) between your left thumb and forefinger. Place the jaws of caliper over the skinfold, and press with thumb where indicated on the AccuFitness caliper until you hear a slight click. Repeat three times and use the average of your measurements.

I have used this caliper to perform both the 3-site and 7-site skin fold test, both of which gave me relatively similar results. (tho I would recommend the 7-site) These results were far more consistent than those done by a Bioelectrical Impedance device that we have at work. With the BI device, it seems like my results change with every use.
The little note that came with it is for men only and is only how to do a single measurement. Don't bother keeping it. Just go on the internet and follow directions on how to measure using these. One spot is insufficient for accuracy anyway.
Also of note, it is hard for a female to do this on her own since, to be more accurate, you need to do the leg, abdomen, and the tricep area with the arm by your side while also reading the measurement. If you want something you can do alone with little effort, get an electric one.
That being said, I do like this thing. It's small, light, discrete, fits in a gym bag and is reasonably accurate. For the price, you can't expect much more.
So I bought this specific fat caliper because I have been following Michael Mathews BLS program for the last year, and I wanted to have a less expensive, and more convenient way to check my BF%. This is the fat caliper that Michael suggests in his book, and on his website. So far he has yet to lead me astray, so I figured I'd give it a shot. Michael if you read this you lead me astray! On his website Michael extolls the accuracy of these calipers, saying that they have about a 1% margin of error. In my case they were off by just under 10% which is massive when trying to figure calories, and macros. Six months ago I had a DEXA scan showing that I was 30% BF. According to the calipers I was some where around 14% BF. I knew that I hadn't lost 10% BF in 6 months. I even watched a few youtube videos just to make sure I was doing it right. So the next day I paid to have another DEXA scan done, and I confirmed that I had only lost 5%, bringing my total BF% to 25. Anyway, I'm said I spent my $15 on these less then amazing fat calipers, and wished I put it towards protein bars, or something else. Oh well. Live and learn, I guess.
The MyoTape is great for taking all sorts of measurements, and allows you to get way more accurate and -consistent- than just using a tailor's tape or what have you.

Nun gibt es volle Punktzahl: Der Caliper liegt gut und der Hand, verzieht sich nicht, misst ohne sich ständig zu verhaken und der kleine Schieber "speichert" die Messung, so dass man sich selber messen und danach bequem ablesen kann ohne sich verrenken zu müssen und dabei die Messung zu verfälschen!
Da ich mir ungern regelmäßig meine Speckfalten von anderen Leuten zusammendrücken lassen will war der letzte Punkt für mich sehr wesentlich!
Ich kann die Zange nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen!
Ok had it for a couple of weeks. Used no more than 3 times and it’s already broken.
The plastic has split at the hinge.
Don’t buy. Very very flimsy.
I've also come to think that maybe you do not need a piece of plastic to tell you whether or not you are satisfied with your body. I think you can tell by looking in the mirror.
This is an average quality product at a reasonable price, and it works as expected. I have not noticed any major problems with it. That being said, the plastic is very flimsy, and I fear it won't last too long.
