The body fat monitor is a monitoring device. It should be used
at a fixed point in time and with a fixed period between two
measurements. For instance: once a week on a Sunday
morning. With this in mind, please find in paragraph 2.1 a
table with recommended times for measurement.
There are conditions that are not suitable for taking a body fat
measurement. There are also some exceptions that are
excluded for taking a body fat measurement. This is explained
in paragraph 2.2 and 2.3. This chapter will end with some
recom mendation (paragraph 2.4) before taking a measurement.
2.1 Recommended times for measurement
Understanding the
normal changes in
your body fat per-
centage can help you
in preventing or
reducing obesity.
Being aware of the
times when the body
fat percentages shift
within your own
daily schedule will
assist you in obtain-
ing an accurate trend
of your body fat. It is
recommended to use
this unit in the same
environment and
same daily circum-
stances. (See chart)
2.2 The conditions or circumstances NOT suitable for a
correct measurement
If a measurement is made under the following physical
conditions, the measured body fat percentage may differ
significantly from the actual one because the water content
in the body changes.
2.3 Exceptions
In some cases, the measured body fat percentage may differ
too much from the actual body fat percentage. These excep-
tions are the people for who measurements may vary due to
consistently changing amounts of water and tissue density
within their bodies.
2.4 Recommendations for taking a measurement
If the palms of your hands are dry or the temperature of your
palms or the grip of the electrodes are extremely cool, stable
measurement is impossible, which may lead to display error
indication or inaccurate results.

Please pay special attention in winter because the air is dry

and/or the temperature is low.
