"This device is based on BIA (Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis) technology.
To measure body bio-electrical impedance, it makes the results much more accurate
with new measuring technology. The reason is that human body fat is not conductive, but muscle and water are good conductors. The device measures human body bio-electrical impedance to calculate the composition of human body." - iTeknic
This is no ordinary digital scale! It's the first scale I've tried that includes an app and wi-fi! It's also the first with information so in-depth.
For proper weight measurements, here's a summary of some of the requirements, which can be found in the iTeknic instruction manual:
Test yourself around the same time and conditions daily.
Make sure you're barefoot and your feet are not dirty.
Use on a hard, flat surface.
Do not weigh yourself when sick, after a shower, sauna or bath, after heavy drinking, engorgement or strenuous exercise.
According to the manual, those factors may cause inaccurate results, which is reasonable.
After downloading the app, I understand and like this scale even more. Following your weight posting on the scale, you hear a tone on the app. You are then given a multitude of information. It displays your weight, BMI, Body Fat %, Visceral Fat, Body Water, Skeletal Muscle %, Muscle Mass, Bone Mass, Protein %, BMR, and Metabolic Age. It's embarrassing, especially being overweight, to see that the metabolic age is so many years older than my actual age, but it is necessary and motivating to have it on screen, right in front of me.
It took no longer than 1 minute to download and set up the app. Just enter your basic information (age, sex, height), and the scale does the rest. You have the option of connecting it to your fitbit or google fit apps, so it can track your workouts and body changes even more accurately. You can view each of your changes on graphs.
Everyone in your household can track their own weight and body changes, because the scale permits multiple profiles. I definitely recommend this scale for everyone, whether you're on a fitness journey or not.
