Question about Health & Beauty

Open Question

I have a Sharper Image Body Fat Scale and I can only use it about 1 time every 5 or 6 tries. It is frustrating to push all the proper buttons on the remote and have it refuse to work. Absolutely nothing happens. I have programmed it for me on all 4 memories to see if that helped. It doesn't! Routine: Push Clock/BFA button Push Recall Push Enter on whichever memory you want to use Step on scale and wait for it to work I did figure out what I thought was the problem. The remote must be pointed at the scale and be not more than 24 inches above the scale. Now even that won't work. I have replaced all 3 batteries at the same time. Any advice you can enter will be greatly appreciated. I am so frustrated that I am ready to return the scale. Thank you.

SOURCE: body fat scale Question

Like all body fat tests, body fat scales don't actually measure your body fat percentage. They determine your body density. The examiner (or the scales) then uses a formula to calculate body fat percentage based on body density. These formulas just predict your body fat. Unfortunately there is no one formula that accurately predicts body fat for the whole population. Differences in age, gender, ethnicity, body size, and fitness level all have a significant affect on the results. Well, whether body fat scales measure your "true" body fat percentage or not doesn't matter! As long as they can accurately monitor changes in your body composition over time, that's all you need.

SOURCE: 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.

Just push either the #"1" or "2" user button and hold it down. The display will flash the height numbers. Hit the Up or Down arrow to change the flashing "5" to a six, etc. Then hit the "set" button to "enter" your choice. This advances the display so that you can now change the inches, gender and age. You're good to go!

I keep getting e on scale dont know what i did wrong setting it up Model bfm884dqn-60 it is for 4 users height of 5 3 1/2 is displayed pls HELP Thanks


I think that those numbers are for the spacing of the feet? I'm not sure what that number is, but anyway you have to push select 3 times and it will save and then the scale will zero out. After that you can push one of the four buttons and program you height/age/gender. I think they really made this scale kind of user difficult.

Understanding Your Readings
Healthy Range Indicator
(Please note this function is only applicable on adult mode, as no standard healthy ranges have been established for children and athletes.)
Your body fat monitor/scale instantly compares your body fat reading to the healthy range chart. Following your body fat reading, a black bar will flash across the bottom of the display, identifying where you fall within the body fat ranges for your age and gender.
(-): Underfat; below the healthy range. Increased risk for health problems
(O): Healthy; within the healthy body fat percentage range for your age/gender
(+): Overfat; above the healthy range. Increased risk for health problems
(++): Obese; high above the healthy body fat range. Greatly increased risk of obesity related problems.

How do you program users?


Storing and Recalling Weights
1. Your scale can store and recall up to 5 weights. If your scale has one button,
weights can be stored for one user. If your scale has two buttons (User and
Save/Recall buttons), weights can be stored for multiple users.
2. Tap center of scale platform with foot and wait until "00.0" appears.
3. Stand on the platform without shifting or moving until weight is displayed.
4. For single user scale: When weight reading appears on screen, step off the
scale, press Save/Recall button and hold for about 2 seconds to save the
reading.
For multiple user scale: When weight reading appears on screen, step off the
scale, and press User button to select a user number. Then press Save/Recall
button for 2 seconds to save the reading.
5. Weight reading blinks twice, then becomes stable. A small number (1-5)
appears in the upper right hand corner of your display, indicating which of the
5 weights is displayed. (Once you have 5 weights in memory the current weight
always saves as "1" and the oldest reading is eliminated.)
6. Weight reading is saved. Press Save/Recall button to review the last 5 weights or
let the scale shut down automatically. (Note: until you have 5 weights stored in
memory, the display will show the number and "–" for each weight for which
no data point has been stored yet; i.e. "3 –", "4 –", "5 –" if only 2 weights
have been saved.)

Hope this helps!!
