Once I got the weight correct, it started measuring my body weight. I'm pretty overweight, and my first 6 Body Fat measurements were 26.0%, 25.9%, 25.8%, 25.9%, 26.0% and 26.2%. That's close enough for me, considering how cheap this device is. It doesn't seem to matter if I'm standing up, sitting down, holding out or holding it near. I also can't seem to throw it off by holding it differently - as long as one hand is touching each side with a reasonable amount of force.
It's certainly not the world's best body fat measurement system, but it's nowhere near as bad as the other reviewers made it out to be.
For starters, it felt disappointingly cheap and is deceptively tiny in my hands (I can only get like, three fingers around the grip handles and I have medium-sized hands), which you probably can't tell in the picture. I put in all my information correctly, height, weight, age, and sex. I keep getting "Err-h", which the instruction manual says means that my body fat is too high above the range to calculate. The last time I checked my body fat % it was around 14% and when I was in the worst shape of my life it was at 18%, so I seriously doubt my body fat is above the upper range of 45%. I tried it in the morning, afternoon, night, shoes on, shoes off, clothes on, clothes off, before the gym, after the gym, holding it backwards, forwards, upside-down, and kept getting the same unbelievable error message.
I tried calling the number in the instruction booklet for the manufacturer, but they were no help: I waited on the line for an hour and they never took my call, so I left a message. I'd say don't even bother calling them.
But the customer service at HPMS was absolutely wonderful.
Like I said, the sole intended purpose of this product was to tell me my body fat. I'd be fine with approximate body fat, a number of some kind that may or may not be correct. I wanted just a little bit more accuracy than myself standing in the mirror guessing, "...um, maybe like, 13? What do you think?" But to receive absolutely no number at all? Unacceptable.
This is not a bad review of HPMS, I love them. They were nothing but helpful. If you're going to buy this crappy product, make sure you buy from them.
But the device doesn't even turn on. Not sure yet if it is the device or the batteries, but either way the device not starting is not a good thing
Also, the batteries are practically impossible to get out, since the battery compartment has a small ledge like thing covering half the battery.
I am going to try new batteries in it before simply sending it back, if I actually get it to work, I will update my review and include a description of how well it works.
