Pocket Metabolism Checker Measures Your Body Fat

When you’re fighting the battle of the bulge, your weight as determined by a scale isn’t always the most accurate way to tell if you’re winning. Your body fat percentage actually gives you a better idea of how fit, or horribly unfit, you really are. So carrying around this pocket-friendly metabolism checker is the perfect way to let you know if you should have that third eclair, no matter where you are.

After you’ve told the device your weight, age, height and gender, you simply touch a couple of electrodes which passes a mild electrical current through your body, allowing it to calculate your body fat percentage. Up to 8 users can be registered on a single device, for keeping the whole family fit, and like pretty much every device on the planet with an LCD display, it also has time and alarm clock functions. $25 from the Japan Trend Shop.

  1. As if the talking scale at GNC that yells, “Have you checked your weight today?” as you walk by wasn't enough to make us feel like lardos. :o) Seriously, though, how accurate is this thing? Because I've heard that the only TRULY accurate body fat measurement is through the water displacement method.
