History: My Tanita died with an error code after working fine for 12 years. I always do my homework for anything. I wanted one with both feet and hand grips because I felt it could theoretically be more accurate. The reason I bought the Omron HBF-516B for $52.99 rather than the Tanita BC-558 at $349.99 is because the Tanita costs almost 7 times as much, and gyms are pretty happy with the Omron hand-held analyzer. The Tanita does more, but some of the additional features I would not want to have, for instance having separate body fat percentages for each limb, and some I would like to have, such as hydration, but it wasn't worth the price difference to me. After studying how BIA (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis) works, and reading the reviews AND User's Manuals on almost 20 scales, I became convinced there is no way to beat the value of this scale at $52.99. You pay almost that for a good bathroom scale without BIA.

My Experience:
- If you can read, you can set up this scale. There is nothing complex about it.
- Omron has the only user's manual of any of the scales that goes into depth on what the numbers mean.
- The controls on the handle are very intuitive. You'll read the User's Manual only once.
- For me, the weight and body composition is accurate compared to skin fold tests. If you read the section below I wrote, "Gold Standards of Body Composition Measurements", you know that any BIA scale is based on an approximation of an approximation. This model does use actual science for its calculations. It has both the feet and hand electrodes.
- It does not have an Athlete Mode. Their hand-held only model does, so they know how to do it. My only thought is they left it out because they didn't think they needed it with the feet and hand electrodes.

This product has a lot of neat (if not entirely useful) features that are fun to play with. It tracks weight, body fat, muscle, visceral fat and what age it thinks your body is (as opposed to pure biological age). Additionally, it stores the highest value for each of those items over time, so you can see how you are trending; which is exceptionally useful.

The reason I took a star away from a perfect score, is a small detail about the body fat calculations. Typical BIA devices generally modify the calculation for how much body fat you have, based on if you meet the guidelines they typically call "athlete" (meaning that you exercise more than 5 hours a week at a fairly intense level). This BIA device does NOT provide that functionality. If you fit the category of a regular intense exerciser and are female, you will find that it estimates a body fat percentage up to 5% more on this device than other BIA devices which have the athlete calculation (such as the Omron hand held BIA or the Tanita scale BIA).

If the product page doesn't mention this, the scale is the Omron HBF 516B.

I've been using this scale since Feb. 2011 and I'm overall satisfied with it. Pros:

* Appears very accurate for weight: within 1% of what the scale at the gym showed last night, but that can be easily accounted for by garments or how much I had eaten.

* Appears very accurate for body fat - within 3.5% of two Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry body composition scans I did two weeks ago. Note that a deviation of 3.5% means that for body fat in the 20% area, a $60 DXA scan will give you a result of +/- 0.7% of body fat, vs. the scale. Also, I had the DXA tests two weeks ago, and variations may well have occurred within that time. I think the scale is again very accurate on measuring body fat.

After using this scale for two months, I can say that its accuracy is OK, but it won't help you in the short term. It's quite common for the scale to indicate 18% body fat in the morning and 20% in the afternoon. The point is you should use it under controlled conditions, at the same time of the day, a constant number of hours before/after a meal etc.. Also, expect changes in your body composition to develop over months, rather than weeks.

* I weighed myself 4 times, and got the same result 3 times, and 0.2lbs less one time. Therefore the scale appears to be highly consistent as well. After weighing myself while holding a 10lb dumbbell plate, the scale showed 10.2 more pounds. Who is right, the scale or the dumbbell plate manufacturer? It doesn't really matter. The scale's precision is around 0.1% (0.2lbs/160lbs).

* Calculates BMI (don't mind it much), body fat (the manual doesn't mention if this includes bone marrow, which can account for +0.

Go with the 510 if you don't want resting metabolism (or estimated age). Go with the 500 if you want resting metabolism (and NOT estimated age). Go with the 516 if you want resting metabolism AND estimated body age. HOWEVER, IN MY EXPERIENCE I would caution you that I have both 510 and 516 and learned in comparing the two scales that the 516 does NOT give ANY parameters besides weight (like percent body fat) if your ESTIMATED body age is greater than 80 (probably is over 80 if you actually are over 60 and out of shape or actually over 40 and really out of shape). Tried my mom (62) on both and the HBF-516 kept giving error code "ERR 4", parameters out of range or something like that. BUT the HBF-510 didn't error out and gave her percent body fat and other things (except estimated body age and resting metabolism of course). I tried both scales myself immediately after her and the 510 and 516 worked just fine and yielded all expected variables for each model, go figure.
