How to utilize the WW87 Glass Body Analysis Scale?

I'm trying to use the user function so I may know what my BF Weight, BF%, Body Water, and Bone Mass are. The problem is, I don't have the manual and when I use it in user mode and when it gets to the weight and I stand on it, all 4 sections say ERR...Only one time it worked, but I have no idea how I did it. May you help me?

    I too have the same problem. The scale indicates the weight in user mode, however all other readouts display as ERR.

    I know my numbers from the scale but now I need to know the ideal numbers for my %water and bone mass. Does anyone know of a website I can go to with tables and ideal number ranges i.e. I am 45 year old female and I assume my number would be different than a 20 year old.

Not only barefoot but also wet your feet before you step on the scale. I always weigh in right out of the shower.

I discovered that it helps if your feet are slightly damp. I usually wipe them with a washcloth before getting on the scale. They don't have to be WET, just every so slightly damp.

Select the appropriate User number, hit set.
Select the appropriate height, hit set.
Select the appropriate age, hit set.
Select the appropriate gender, hit set.

To use, select the same user number, wait for 0.0 to appear, and go for it.

I had the same problem and think i figured it out. here's what to do.

set your "user" setting by pressing user, then the arrow keys to adjust your height and age, and to indicate male or female (make sure you get these right because it's impossible to figure out how to re-se them).

after you get it set, press "user" until your user number comes up (1, 2, 3, or 4). the readout will display the same info you entered as your settings, followed by 0.0.

get on the scale, making sure your heels are on the metal pieces at the bottom of the scale. (some people seem to think it works better if your feet are slightly damp, although in my case it didn't matter).

the scale will first display your weight (ouch!) and then a few seconds later, the bottom line of text that includes body fat in lbs, body fat %, water % and bone mass index.

you can compare your #s to the table enclosed. hope this helps!

    What do you do if your user button no longer seems to be working? How do you fix that?

You have to step on the scale BAREFOOT to get the other readings.
Otherwise the scan fails and you get all ERR.

Your scale is showing you your weight in kilograms what you need to do is change the settings so it shows you your weight in pounds or stones

Hello,

I found this from another posting. Hope it helps.

FEMALES: age 20-29 normal= 6.2-7%
FEMALES: age 30-39 normal= 6-6.8%
FEMALES: age 40-49 normal= 5.6-6.4%

FEMALES: age 60-69 normal= 4.9-5.7%

i believe that, like most electronic scales, the first time you get on the scale you must step off to allow it to zero itself. Then step back on to get your correct weight.

What do the three numbers represent? Weight is obvious, but "f" and then the last one?


http://www.conair.com/instruction_booklets/06AD15055%20IB%20TH313.pdf
I think this is the manual for the above mentioned product. Does it say f or BF? BF is % fat with in your body, although the techonolgy used is not too acturate, you can use it as a guide, to ensure the best possible acuracy be sure to use it at the same time of day preferably before drinking or bathing/showering. Usually first thing in the morning after you use the rest room is best. It uses electrical impedence to measure for the extra measurement features and these factors can skew the readings.

H20 would be water content, and

bone is bone denstiy which is important to keep take of espicially if you are an older female, or on medications that affect bone density. Although i am not sure how acurate the readings would be and highly reccomend if you are at risk for ostioparosis or any other diseases or on medications affecting bone desinties to check in with your doctor about testing and monitoring.

BF% is wrong


Unfortunately, it's the scale, but it's not broken. It simply is telling you inaccurate information.
Some scales utilize Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology. BIA uses very low levels of electrical impulses running from one metal contact point/lead to another. Your body acts as the connector between the two contact points, thus completing the circuit. Not all scales use this means for calculating body fat percentage due to poor reliability and high fabrication costs.This method of measurement requires very large contact points, as well as clean and moist skin exposure. If you have dry/calluced feet, which is normal for most Americans, the sensors can not accurately measure due to skin resistance. Dry skin acts as a resistor to electrical impulse. Electricity passes through muscle and fat at different rates. However, its measurements may be thrown off by how hydrated you are and how much you've eaten; it may be too inaccurate for anything other than comparative use. Users are encouraged to establish a baseline measurement and repeat measurements under consistent conditions over time to detect changes.
Many less expensive models simply use a body-fat calculator to average your imputed height in inches, waist measurement in inches and the current weight measurement recorded in lbs. The scale compares your measurement with the ideal norms inputed during the manufactoring process, thus giving you a comparison vs.imputed norms. People who are very, very fit can get numbers 3 to 5 percent higher than their true percent body fat. Because they don't have a lot of fat inside their muscles(visceral fat), the simple tape measure calculation test cannot adjust as it should indicate.
Conversely, if a person is skinny but not fit, this body fat test may yield a number 3 to 5 percent lower than his or her true percent body fat. Though they look thin, unfit skinny people really have more than the usual amount of fat inside their muscles, which you can't see from the outside.
In either case, the scale is not necessary a measurement tool, due to high variables of test inaccuracy and interuser reliabilty; but, it is a good tool for comparing whether or not you are gaining/losing body fat.
If you would like a more accurate tool for simply measuring your body fat, you can pick up some pinch-calipers online for about the price of a scale. They come with an instructional pamphlet, very easy to use.
