Ease and Nearly Accurate, October 15, 2005

I am comparing it against other methods right now, but it seems to be nearly as accurate as any other method. However it becomes much less accurate at competition leanness, that being below 15% body fat…or at low body water points in your training.

One advantage of the HPF 306 Body Fat Tracker is that you can use it without anyone else to help.

I have used a many tools over the decades and for the price…this sure seems to be a great one!

As another reviewer noted…this is best used by taking measurements over a period of time and tracking changes. If your interest is simply to monitor your body composition over time for general health, once every one to three months is a good interval. If, on the other hand, you have a specific goal or are in an intensive nutrition/training cycle, you may wish to track once a week.

If you are looking to lose weight (by losing excess fat) …measuring Lean Body Mass and Body Fat is the only way to insure you are not losing muscle and water.

Many diets cause massive losses of water and muscle (very low calorie and low carbohydrate diets for example)…leading to a quick regain of pounds at some point. If you are on a diet program, and nobody is measuring your Lean Body Mass and Body Fat, you simply do not know what your body is doing.

So you know my credentials, I have been involved in health and fitness for over 20 years as a Body Builder, Body Sculptor, Trainer, Consultant, Coach and many other positions in the field. I am currently the Director of Personal Success Now.

For the best accuracy with this…

You should take the measurements at the same time of day. You should take your body weight (needed to determine Lean Body Mass and Body Fat) on THE SAME SCALE at the same time of day every time.

Also, note what cloths you were wearing when you weigh yourself on the scale…always wear them for the weigh-in. Take a photograph of yourself now!! It is so helpful to see images of yourself at 30% bodyfat, then at 25%, then at 20%, then at 18%! If you feel shy, take them yourself in front of a mirror!

You will be glad you did. Just trust me on that.

If the program you are following is not giving you results in three weeks, something is not right. Get some help from a knowledgeable and qualified trainer. They can help you shorten the time it takes to reach your goals and be Your Personal Best.

Always ask potential program managers/trainers how they will help you achieve your goals. If they will not be using these components to help you…consider finding someone else:

1) Food and Nutrient intake monitoring
2) Cardiorespiratory Training
3) Resistance Training
4) Personal Assistance including Body composition monitoring

Additionally, if you are looking to lose body fat, you should consider removing foods with flavorings, colorings, additives, and preservatives from your diet at this time, as clinical tests have demonstrated that some of these can adversely effect bodyfat mobilization (i.e. fat burning) and some even enhance fat storage and stimulate the appetite.

Wishing you Personal Success Now!

P.S. The Omron HBF-306 uses pounds (weight) and inches (height) for measurements not metric….but can be switched between the two.

great product, would highly recommend, January 31, 2014

The Omron HBF-306 is very simple to use. Because it uses electrical resitance and calculated “wing span” to measure BF%, it’s possible (due to differences in arm length) that your reading may not be 100% accurate compared to a clinical “immersion” test. However, it is definitely consistent! I also have caliper type pinchers and found them too inconsistent (unless you can pinch the same exact spot each time).

With the Omron HBF-306, you can easily track changes in your body fat % as you progress through your fitness training. I was able to lose 6% points in just 3 months using garcinia cambogia You’ll be able to easily tell if your losing fat and/or gaining muscle by monitoring your BF% along with your weight. Check your weight and body fat % first thing in the morning for the most consistent readings. I highly recommend it.

I never buy anything without doing research on what to buy first. If you read about BMI analyzers on About.com it not only recommends this as one of their top 3 picks over ANY kind of body fat analyzer, but it also explains why some people didnt get the results expected on these comments…because of user error.

Most admit to using this first thing in the morning.
It says on about.com never to do that. For accurate readings, use 3 hours after a meal, never first thing in the morning, (you are dehydrated then) never use when dehydrated, but you should use after emptying your bladder. (remember it’s guaging what percent of you is muscle vs water so you want your body water to be balanced and normal…not too low with dehydration, not too high with a full bladder.) Also it’s best to use this, or any monitor, when unclothed if possible. Ive found that part not to matter that much as everyone at my office borrows this sometimes and, because bare workers would be awkward, we’ve found it to read accurately clothed. 🙂

Also, if you have a very high muscle mass and a very low BMI set it on “athlete” for an accurate reading. So yes, even bodybuilders CAN use it…you just have to know how.

This explained those who had problems and the unbiased rating on the aformentioned website (and others) states that this is WAY more accurate than calipers…made me buy it. I”d used it before at the gym and it was always great. But before I purchase on my own, I learn.

I use mine often and it is right on target as to what’s going on with my body. A handheld non-electronic (or even electronic if it’s the kind you place ON your fat) caliper will vary if you do not measure the EXACTLY in the same place each time and squeeze to the exact resistance. You avoid that common error via this latest technology.This has the latest.

I bought this one because or reading about what technology works the best from consumer tests by the experts. And I am happy with my purchase.

As an aside, I also discovered the scales that do fat testing through your feet are not as accurate as this method of testing either, even the Omron scale didnt test for accuracy as well as this Omron fat tester.

So I thought I’d share what i found in my week of research prior to purchase.

I love this body fat analyzer and my friends who have used it got their own as well. If you are bloated, your scale can’t tell you why your weight is up. This can. And some days, I thank it for that!
