Question about Homedics SC-405 Digital Bath Scale

1 Answer

Body Fat Reading Changing Drastically

I have a Homedics Bathroom Scale. The first day my body fat measured at 27.4, on days 2-4, it measured at 34.4 and today on day 5, it measured at 14.5%. In the beginning I don't believe that I was standing on the scale long enough to get an accurage reading. I am a female, weighing 124 pounds and am 5 feet 7 inches tall. I kno that my body fat is not 34.4% or is it 14.5%, any suggestions as to what I may be doing wrong?

The fact of matter is those devices are inacurate for some reason more so on smaller females. But if you recently took a bath or drank water it will alter the results, they suggest taking it first thing before bath or eating in the morning at same time everyday to get a more acurate reading.

This may be getting personal but implants will also affect the reading making it totally useless for you to use. I have them and the electrical impedence devices read me much higher then what i am, a few minutes later will read me lower.

I would head down to your gym most of them will do a free body fat test with the calipers which is more acurate (as long as they know what they are doing).

Err message


The "Err" problem is a very common one but no one so far could predict the reason causing this.It means that there has been an
error in the scale measurement.The only solution mentioned everywhere is to Step off the scale until its LCD screen blanks and Step back on the scale.

Digital scale question


Digital scales purport to measure your body fat through a process called BIA, or bioelectrical impedance analysis. Essentially, it clocks the speed that electricity travels through you. The scale runs a low-level electric current through your body, using your feet as positive and negative electrodes. The current encounters different levels of impedance, or resistance, from fat versus muscle. The scale measures this impedance, and throws it together with other factors (age, sex, height) to come up with your BMI, or body mass index.
