Review! Eat Smart Precision Body Check Scale


This Giveaway has now ended!  Thank you to everyone who entered!! 
Congratulations to Brandon S. for being the Winner!


Have you ever wondered what your body fat percentage or muscle mass percentage is? 
There's a bathroom scale that can tell you!  I was recently given the opportunity to try out the EatSmart Precision Body Check scale for free in exchange for my honest opinion.  All opinions are 100% mine.

I was so excited to try this scale!

We took it out of the box immediately and tried to figure out how to use it.  It came well packaged and came with 3 AAA batteries.  Once we got the batteries in, we got started!  It took me a couple times before I figured out how to enter the information correctly.  The icons were a little confusing at first, because I couldn't tell if the figure was the "athlete" or whether it was male or female.  Once I figured that out, the rest of the process was pretty easy.  The EatSmart scale can hold up to eight people's information.  By the time we had to enter the 3rd and 4th people's info, it was a piece of cake.

To enter the info, you hit the on/off button, select a memory number (1 - 8).  Then you input whether you are male or male athlete or female or female athlete.  You can find out their definition of "athlete" in the instruction manual that comes with the scale.  Then you put your activity level, 1 - 5, which also is defined in the manual.  Enter your height and your age.  Once the scale zeroes out, you can weigh yourself.  

The scale is only meant for people who are between the ages of 18 - 80.  The scale works by Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis technology.  A low intensity electrical signal is sent through the body.  The signal is very low and doesn't cause harm.  Depending on the amount of body fat of the individual, the electrical signal will flow through with a different degree of difficulty.  *Because of the electrical current, anyone with a pacemaker or metal body parts shouldn't use it.  Also, although it is safe, it is unknown the effect that it has on fetuses, so pregnant women shouldn't use it.

All of the percentages in the scale are an approximation.  Your physician can order tests that will be more accurate.  However, I like having an approximate percentage to give me an idea of what I need to work on.   According to my BMI, I am "too lean", but according to my hydration percentage, I'm "fat."  That leads me to believe that a lot of the fat % is based on BMI from the weight and height measurements, but I still love having the estimates.
Muscle mass percentage
Bone Mass Percentage

You can find out what all of the percentages mean in the manual that comes with the scale.

The instructions say that results are best with clean, slightly moist feet. That part is true!  I've tried it when my feet were dry~~just out of socks and it will only read my weight, not any of the percentages.  If I put a little water on the bottom of my feet and then wipe it off, I'm good to go. I find it's best to just do it right after I have come out of the shower and have dried off.

Once you enter each person's info, the scale remembers each person based on the weight when that person steps on the scale.  If there is more than one person with around the same weight, it will give you an option of which person is on the scale.

You can find the scale at Amazon.

  15. I'd like to try this scale to get information other than my body weight. I'm seeing that as I get older my metabolism has slowed but that doesn't mean that I'm less fit. Sometimes we carry extra weight but that may be due to an increase in water from too much salt. Plus, I'm kind of a nerd when it comes to trending data about myself!
