Easy to use and the price was very economic.
Does it's job for the money
Cheap but works - perhaps not the most accurate bit of equipment, but still good value for money
Good but not as a accurate as could be
The slider moves as soon as the compression is release, so we can't see ne number.
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 %.Goes Well With:Multiple Site Readings
Excellent piece of equipment and has helped me immensely! First call delivery for timing and quality of product is excellent also.Goes Well With:All my fitness equipment
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.
Great product, easy to use and inexpensive.
It does what it is supposed to! Easy to use, understandable results. Goes Well With:Low body fat
I use this every sunday just to make sure i dont get my fat % to high while bulking.and im going once a month to an official b.f test its price is good and it does what it made for.Goes Well With:low fat %
Does what is says on the tin, simple effective. For this price what more could you want?
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.
Helps to keep on track of body fat
It's not so stable, every time after the "click" the scale moves if I move the caliper..
Easy to use and precise. Better if combined with some app that does the maths for you! Very satisfied! ^_^
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.Goes Well With:Bin
Product arrived very quickly. Measurments were taken easy and accurately. Thank you myprotein
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
