Now I have one that I can do at home and whenever I like (if it worked all the time). Although, FYI you should do it at the same time of day each time you do it. They are body fat calipers made by Ozeri.
The first set that they sent me didn't click. Without the click you don't know when to stop pinching. I contacted the company and they sent me a replacement completely free. Great customer service!
This morning I finally got a chance to get a true reading. I was pleasantly surprised with with my results. I am leaner than I expected. Having fat calipers at your own convenience is an amazing idea. I definitely recommend it if you have fitness goals. Ditch the scale!
Over the years I have learned how little the number on the scale matters. Your body fat percentage is a more accurate determination of health and fitness.
I like calipers because they give you a pretty accurate measurement. No, they are not 100% dead on every time. Most reading errors are due to user error. Fat calipers are usually recommended for those that have been trained how to properly use them. If you think you can figure it out (GOOGLE IT! lol) then go for it. But I do recommend to do at least a 3-point test. It will give you results that are way more accurate.
I had issues even with my second set though. They don't always work as they should. I don't like the design. And I absolutely hate the tape measure. It either measures too long or shortens before you can read it. Watch my YouTube to understand what I mean.
Overall, I am greatly impressed with the professionalism of the company. The fact that they stood behind their product and put the customer first is very impressive. They were a lot better than a lot of the companies that I've had product errors with. If they tweak their product and make it more reliable then I would definitely purchase from them in the future. As is, I wouldn't waste my money on it. They are cheap though, so it's up to you!
If you'd like to check them out for yourself you can find them on Amazon HERE.
