So, you have decided once and for all that you are going to get rid of that excess poundage. Well, if you are looking for a fat analyzer, this is certainly one of the most competitively priced models out there. However, does that mean it’s actually any good? Read on to learn more about this product and its features, and see if cheap really does mean cheerful!
The FatTrack Gold is actually a recent configuration of the FatTrack II, which proved to be a hit among people who wanted to keep track of their weight loss progress. Included in this new package is the MyoTape Tape Measure that is meant to provide you with extra measurement capability. In fairness, I didn’t actually use it, because I already have a tape measure that is practically identical to the one that comes bundled but in practical terms, this duo will allow you to measure the circumference of any of your body parts and keep track of your body fat percentage at the same time. The package also includes a user manual, which is clearly written and easy to understand.
What Others Are Saying:
It may come as a pleasant surprise to you that the FatTrack Gold Digital Body Fat Caliper has been recommended by more than a few well-known Fitness establishments. These include Oxygen, Men’s Journal, Ironman, Muscular Development, Muscle & Fitness, Natural Muscle, and Shape magazines. More importantly, the World Natural Bodybuilding Federation (WNBF) also highly recommends this caliper because it meets their stringent requirements for Bodybuilders, Weightlifters, and Power lifters.
How It Works:
Using the machine is a doddle. Simply press a couple of buttons then get ready for the machine to pinch you (not painfully!) and bring back a near instant reading your Body fat percentage. The FatTrack Gold features a push-button locking and retracting system and is capable of storing up to three personal profiles at a time. Another helpful feature is the audible beep that indicates the correct amount of pressure and measurement, thus ensuring accuracy. Furthermore, it has a patented measuring system that ensures 1mm accuracy and a hundred percent repeatability.
Small and Portable
Not Suitable For Very Obese People – Inexpensive To Suit Any Budget – Readout Is Faint In Bright Sunlight – Extremely Accurate – Text Very Small – What I Really Liked About It: I actually purchased this item as a means to measure my body fat percentage when away travelling. It’s small, light and portable. What I didn’t expect was it to be so accurate. I know this is the case because I also own the rather less portable Omron Full Body Sensor and I compared its results to the more expensive Omron product. Therefore, I was very impressed with its overall efficiency. I also like the price! It is definitely a good investment. Another advantage of this caliper is the fact that detailed instructions are provided to help you in getting started. In addition, the product can be used just about anywhere.
What’s Not So Good:
The only main drawback is that it only opens a few inches, which means it may not be the best tool for extremely obese individuals. In addition, if you are not good at taking measurements with a caliper, you just might get different readings, so do read the instructions before your first time use. Apart from that, minor niggles really: The screen text is a bit on the small side and can be hard to read in direct sunlight. Not a problem if you’re indoors though.
In sum, the FatTrack GOLD Digital Body Fat Caliper is indeed a very useful tool regardless of whether you are a personal trainer, a competitive lifter, or an average individual monitoring your body fat in your efforts to lose weight and maintain your health and well-being. It’s affordable and portable and simple to use. It provides you with an easy and accurate method of self-measurement.
