Fat Callipers

Accurate body fat measurements, ideal for fitness instructors

AED 21.0

21 AED

Our Fat Callipers are a precision instrument that use skinfold thickness to measure body fat. They come with a convenient measurement chart for males and females, ages 18-65, which can be used as a guideline for calculating body fat. Ideal when you’re trying to get shaped and toned.

 

Measurement Range: Approx. 0-2.76inch/0-7cm

  • Accurate body fat measurements
  • Ideal for personal trainers
  • Very light and easy to transport

For accurate and repeatable tests, follow the below guidelines for taking skinfold measurements. Following a standard method of assessment helps ensure accuracy and repeatability on future testing.

  • Instruct the test subject to keep the muscles relaxed during the test.
  • Mark the skinfold site using a pen with water soluble ink. Use a tape measure to accurately find the mid-points.
  • The skinfold should be firmly grasped by the thumb and index finger, using the pads at the tip of the thumb and finger. Gently pull the skinfold away from the body.
  • The Caliper should be placed perpendicular to the fold, on the site marked, dial up, at approximately 1 cm below the finger and thumb. While maintaining the grasp of the skinfold, allow the Caliper to be released so that full tension is placed on the skinfold.
  • A minimum of two measurements should be taken at each site. If repeated tests vary by more than 1 mm, repeat the measurement. If consecutive measurements become increasingly smaller, the fat is being compressed. Go to another site and come back a little later and recheck the problem site.
  • The final value recorded should be the average of the two that seems best to represent the skinfold fat site.

Impulse buy

To be honest I bought this without consideration. Now after researching I see you need to take multiple measurements from a number of locations on the body to calculate your overall body fat %. I’m not one for all of that so I’m going to use it to measure my waist Fat over the next few months to see if my program of fat burn is working. Not ideal but I should have read up first

Fine

Seems to work fine but it moves easily so hard to get a very accurate reading.

I'd never used these before and was glad that they came with a guide. As a person focusing in reducing body fat,this has been very useful to me

Sorry not for me

These really were not good, but were very well priced. It is difficult to use these effectively on yourself. You may have better luck if you have someone available to assist you. Honestly, you can use these 3 times in a row and get 3 wildly different results, some of which make no sense at all. The scales, your ability to retain strength while dieting, your clothes and the mirror are all substantially more informative about your fat loss progress than these callipers. If you want to know your accurate body fat you’re going to have to pay out for a thorough professional test. These callipers won’t even give you a ball park or help you understand your progress. Sorry.

Calipers

Really can't complain for the price. Cheap and relatively effective. They do wear out eventually and you'll need to buy another. Certainly worth it.

Awful design

This is the most frustrating thing to use. The "clicker" mechanism causes the measurement slider to annoyingly slip out of place when you use it. Do not buy.
