The battery required for Model 4528 is a 210mAh 3V Lithium battery. Mine has CR2032 across the top. I don't know much about batteries, so have included all the info on the battery - it may be enough to just have a 3V Lithium battery. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Body Fat Reading Changing Drastically

The fact of matter is those devices are inacurate for some reason more so on smaller females. But if you recently took a bath or drank water it will alter the results, they suggest taking it first thing before bath or eating in the morning at same time everyday to get a more acurate reading.

This may be getting personal but implants will also affect the reading making it totally useless for you to use. I have them and the electrical impedence devices read me much higher then what i am, a few minutes later will read me lower.

I would head down to your gym most of them will do a free body fat test with the calipers which is more acurate (as long as they know what they are doing).

SOURCE: The scale only measures in 'stone' weight

I contacted the manufacturer of the porduct here is what they suggested you do

Please insure that there is nothing inside that area that may be hindering the switch to change from mode to mode.
You can also remove the batteries for a period of 24 hours to see if that will trigger a reset in the unit.

If you continue to have problems we may be able to replace under warranty.
Your scale does carry a 10 year warranty but you will need to have a copy of the original itemized receipt (or order confirmation if purchased online) in order for us to process a warranty claim.

If you happen to have a copy of the original receipt or order confirmation, please contact our customer service line between 8:30 – 5:30, Monday – Friday, (Central Time) at 847-640-9241, and we can issue you a Return Merchandise Authorization for product replacement.

Sincerely,

How do I obtain the bone,muscle,hydration,fat and calorie measurement on a dquip body fat/hydration monitor scale (infrared transmission body fat scale) I see the weight on the scale Bella


These measurements are based on BIA (bioelectrical impedance analysis). As you stand on the scale, you stand on electrodes, which generate small electric impulses which pass throughout your body (and different tissues of course). Different tissues have different electrical conductivity and resistivity due to their different hydration (e.g fat tissue contains very small % of water, that's why its resistance is high), so the scale measures the % of different tissues in your body by analyzing the resistance(this analysis is quite complicated and not very accurate).

Eat Smart scale showing body fat as much too low


Probably there's a build-up of skin oil from your feet that is preventing it from reading properly. Clean off the top of the scale with a cloth dampened in soapy water, then rinse wipe it with a cloth dampened in plain water, and dry it. Be careful not to dribble liquid into the scale.

Note: fat measurement by this method is difficult to do accurately and consistently, For best results, make sure you're properly hydrated at least ten minutes before measuring, and wash and dry the soles of your feet first.

Does having water effect the BF calcutations on a Tanita 1250053 BF-350?


Yes. These systems work by what could be broken down as, "Bio-electrical Impedance Monitoring".
Meaning, they measure the amount of resistance in your body to determine the "volume %" of non-resistive materials (fat and water). Since bones and muscle are very dense in comparison, the scale can calculate the total weight of a person, then determine their "expected BF%). Fat is about 80-90% water depending on your genetic makeup, and it would only make sense that if you where full of fluids (either by ingesting large amounts or by fluid build up under the skin) that your BF% would read higher. My professional suggestion? Use it only after waking and before any morning drink or food.
(REMEMBER...THESE THINGS WILL NEVER BE EXACT!!!) Hydrostatic weighing in the only way to be 99%+ on your BFC (body fat composition)
GOOD LUCK AND PLEASE RATE THIS POST!!
P.S. one way to test this method is to hold something heavy in your hands and watch it consider that weight Lean Muscle Tissue. Then stick your hands in a sink full of still water (moving water posses a small electrical charge that could give a false reading) and watch your BF% increase.

What does BIA value of 38% mean?


The BIA is bioelectric impedance analysis or your body fat. BIA is the method used to determine your body fat, it sends a small electric pulse through your body and using formulas that account for the time it takes for the pulse to travel through water, muscle and fat. Remeber that this measurement can be affected by different variables such as water if you have taken a shower or drank a glass of water before being measured so it is not always acurate. To obtain a more accurate measurement I reccomend using it first thing in the morning before showering or eating/drinking when there is less chance of variables. Please let me know if you need further help :) Have a great day!

BF% is wrong


Unfortunately, it's the scale, but it's not broken. It simply is telling you inaccurate information.
Some scales utilize Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology. BIA uses very low levels of electrical impulses running from one metal contact point/lead to another. Your body acts as the connector between the two contact points, thus completing the circuit. Not all scales use this means for calculating body fat percentage due to poor reliability and high fabrication costs.This method of measurement requires very large contact points, as well as clean and moist skin exposure. If you have dry/calluced feet, which is normal for most Americans, the sensors can not accurately measure due to skin resistance. Dry skin acts as a resistor to electrical impulse. Electricity passes through muscle and fat at different rates. However, its measurements may be thrown off by how hydrated you are and how much you've eaten; it may be too inaccurate for anything other than comparative use. Users are encouraged to establish a baseline measurement and repeat measurements under consistent conditions over time to detect changes.
Many less expensive models simply use a body-fat calculator to average your imputed height in inches, waist measurement in inches and the current weight measurement recorded in lbs. The scale compares your measurement with the ideal norms inputed during the manufactoring process, thus giving you a comparison vs.imputed norms. People who are very, very fit can get numbers 3 to 5 percent higher than their true percent body fat. Because they don't have a lot of fat inside their muscles(visceral fat), the simple tape measure calculation test cannot adjust as it should indicate.
Conversely, if a person is skinny but not fit, this body fat test may yield a number 3 to 5 percent lower than his or her true percent body fat. Though they look thin, unfit skinny people really have more than the usual amount of fat inside their muscles, which you can't see from the outside.
In either case, the scale is not necessary a measurement tool, due to high variables of test inaccuracy and interuser reliabilty; but, it is a good tool for comparing whether or not you are gaining/losing body fat.
If you would like a more accurate tool for simply measuring your body fat, you can pick up some pinch-calipers online for about the price of a scale. They come with an instructional pamphlet, very easy to use.
