Thin, thin, thin! It has become a life motto for many people, but just reducing weight blindly is not the only standard for being thin. You may need targeted fat loss. A scale is one of the essential items in every household, especially for fitness enthusiasts or those with weight loss needs, who cannot do without a good scale.
Smart weight scales have quietly replaced traditional scales, but the numerous types and functions can be confusing. Choosing a smart body scale that suits you is the first problem to be solved before losing weight.
Currently, there are two shapes of smart body scales on the market: square and round. Apart from personal preferences for shape, the area of a round smart body scale is smaller than that of a square one of the same size. The square panel is more stable and relatively more accurate.
Measurement range and accuracy are important considerations when choosing a smart body scale. The maximum load of a general smart body scale is around 150kg, which can meet the needs of most people.
In terms of accuracy, better quality smart body scales can be precise to 0.1kg, while average quality products usually round up to the nearest integer. A general smart body scale can store data of 8-16 users, meeting the basic needs of a family.
According to the working principle of a smart body scale, the bioelectrical impedance value is constantly changing due to factors such as body water content. Studies have shown that multiple measurements of the same index may fluctuate. Patients with pacemakers and defibrillators cannot use a smart body scale with bioelectrical impedance measurement.
Compared with traditional scales, smart body scales can help users record and monitor their weight, and the data is synchronized with health analysis software.
In addition to weight, smart body scales can also detect values such as body fat content, muscle density, and bone mass. The most important one is the BMI value (body mass index).
BMI value is a statistical tool used for public health research. It is a measure of body weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters, which is an internationally commonly used standard for measuring body fatness and health. BMI mainly reflects the overall weight and overall nutrition status and is used to measure obesity.
