    Key Benefits

    • Easy and accurate body fat measurements in minutes
    • Ideal for personal trainers and Fitness instructors
    • Very light easy to transport

    Suggested Use

    For accurate and repeatable tests, follow the below guidelines for taking skinfold measurements. Following a standard method of assessment helps ensure accuracy and repeatability on future testing.

    • Instruct the test subject to keep the muscles relaxed during the test.
    • Mark the skinfold site using a pen with water soluble ink. Use a tape measure to accurately find the mid-points.
    • The skinfold should be firmly grasped by the thumb and index finger, using the pads at the tip of the thumb and finger. Gently pull the skinfold away from the body.
    • The Caliper should be placed perpendicular to the fold, on the site marked, dial up, at approximately 1 cm below the finger and thumb. While maintaining the grasp of the skinfold, allow the Caliper to be released so that full tension is placed on the skinfold.
    • A minimum of two measurements should be taken at each site. If repeated tests vary by more than 1 mm, repeat the measurement. If consecutive measurements become increasingly smaller, the fat is being compressed. Go to another site and come back a little later and recheck the problem site.
    • The final value recorded should be the average of the two that seems best to represent the skinfold fat site.

    The slider moves as soon as the compression is release, so we can't see ne number.

    Don't Use The Slider and Use More Than One Site

    It's a pretty standard piece of equipment so I don't think there's much room for error; however, it has its faults. The main one of these being the slider which is used to record your reading for you; this slider moves as soon as I release the compression, making it utterly useless. The other fault I found was with the instructions, telling me to use only the suprailiac site to test on. You don't need to go far into anatomy to discover that different people for fat in different locations at different quantities. So, in summary, if you're going with this piece of equipment, observe the reading for yourself, not using the slider, and use at least one upper body, trunk and lower body test to determine the fat %. Obviously, that means you'll have to search elsewhere to find a calculator for what the readings represent in fat %.

    These are great calipers and would much prefer to measure progress with body fat reduction with these than standing on a set of scales as I don't see how they can tell u anything other than ur weight accurately.

    Love this! So brilliant to be able to track my progress losing body fat without having to pay every time to have someone else do it at the gym. Really easy to use and the instructions are perfectly clear! I recommend it to everyone at the gym!

    For the price these are really good. The body fat that they calculated for myself seems a reasonable estimate so I think they're a good tool for getting an idea of your body fat %. Of course they're not going to be 100% accurate but they at least allow you to get an estimate so that you can compare the figures week after week. So they give you a good idea of how much fat you are losing.

    I'm a big fan of all Myprotein products so hate to be negative but these calipers are terrible. The clicker designed to show you how hard to press actives before you even touch any skin. The instructions using 1 point method is also very inaccurate. If you want accurate results or even just results for that matter I highly suggest spending a bit more elsewhere and getting decent calipers.

    I was a bit skeptical at first as to wether this would be accurate, ecspecially as my body fat percentage was lower than I thought, Definately thought I was fatter!!! but after doing research I believe it is, it's cheap, accurate and a great way to track progress!! Although on the chart it provides they both say for men, I had to work out myself wich was supposed to be the female one
