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.
My Current Favorite (and only ^_^) Calipers: Accu-Measure Body Fat Caliper
I did my research before buying these calipers and found the main qualities you should look for are a solid build and consistent measurements. This being my first time purchasing body fat calipers, I am very happy with the product quality. The build is solid, with no wobbling or lose connectors. In use, there is an audible distinctive "click" sound that makes it easy to determine when you have reached your measurement.
Over the past three weeks, I have discovered that while the Accu-Measure calipers are consistent, they can be difficult to use when there is even the slightest bit of moisture. I would not recommend taking your measurements with these, directly after a workout. Due to this, the only way I believe I could improve on this design, would be to add a texture to improve grip. However, for roughly $7, there is only so much one may expect.
In summary, I definitely recommend the Accu-Measure Body Fat Caliper. The product is portable, effective, and I can count on consistency in my results.
I guess there will be a sweet spot when the plastic snapper gets worn down due to usage and becomes useful... probably before it gets so worn down that it becomes useless again. Save your money and buy something better. Or use a ruler, it'll be more consistent!
Edit: I just realized they don't even accept returns! There's $6 I'll never see again!
used a health machine at my local gym that calculates your body fat, it calculated it @ 31%
Worked out for 5 months and dropped my bf to 21% according to the health machine.
can back home and was pleased to calculate 21% with the caliper. Very Accurate very easy,
The caliper also came with a chart, (mine actually came with 2) which is small enough to carry with you, but informative and easy enough to read. It is also pretty straight forward and easy to understand - line up your age with the number you got on the caliper and you'll get your body fat percentage.
Very cut and dry with no formulas or complex issues to deal with.
