Too much body fat can be dangerous for your health. In fact many scientists think that it is the leading cause of disease in the body. Therefore you need a way to keep your health in check and see how you are contributing to the improvement of it. Picking a good body fat scale will not only throw out number, but will motivate you to achieving your goals.
Measuring your body fat is important. In fact it is more important than your BMI as your BMI reading does not take into account muscle and fat percentages. It’s more of a guidance for the average body. However if you want something more personal to your body that gives you an accurate indication of your health then your body fat is the figure to monitor most closely.
We’ve compiled a list below of the best body fat scales available today. Take your time to read the reviews and choose the right one for you.

Measuring your body fat by sending a pulse through your body, the Omron BF508 can give you a reading within 10 seconds. The only thing to be aware of with this scale (as well as others on this list) is that you have to measure your body fat at the same time every day otherwise the readings will fluctuate throughout the day. However because of the design of this scale with the hand help bars, it is a very accurate body fat measuring device. Read Full Review

The Salter body fat scale has a fog resistant screen (LCD). Which means you can get your weigh in steamy environments, like the shower. I wouldn’t recommend it though, I have found that the best way to use this scale is when it is dry. You have to enter your age, height and age for it to more accurately calculate your body fat. It’s not as highly rated as the other scales in the list, but if you are not too bothered by precision accuracy then this is the body fat scale for you. Read Full Review
