the difference between a body fat scale and a hand held analayzer?
Besides being being portable and lightweight,
there is very little that separates the hand held body fat
analyzer to the scale version. Both product a similar level
of accuracy and consistency by using the same technology.
Both are also similarily priced. Omron, the
makers of the blood pressure monitors, also creates body fat
analyzers for under $60.00, which is about the same price
as the lowest priced scales. The only difference between the
two is that the body fat scales also double as weight scales.
It's this slightly insignificant detail that gives the scales
an edge over the hand held analyzers, in my own opinion.

If you're undecided, I suggest that you read
the review on the body fat scales. Since the technology between
the hand held and scale are the same, you may want to consider
what extra options you can get for you money...
