Your body fat percentage tells you how much of your body is made up of fat. This is different to how much you weigh – someone can be quite heavy but have a low body fat percentage as muscle weighs more than fat. Your body needs a certain amount of fat in order to stay warm and keep functioning properly – fat protects your internal organs and provides an essential energy store. However, if you have too much body fat then you will have a high risk of developing diseases and conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and cancer. As muscle weighs more than fat, body fat percentage is also a much better way to determine how fit you are than just weighing yourself.
Find out your body fat percentage in seconds with this handheld device
This pocket sized measurer uses bioelectrical impedance, the most frequently used way of measuring body fat. It works by sending a small and painless electrical signal through your body. Electrical currents travel more easily through blood, urine and muscle than they do through bone and fat. So bioelectrical impedance measures how quickly an electrical signal can go through your body to predict how much of your body is made up of fat. This Wellys body fat analyser is a quick and convenient way to do this at home and keep track of your health and fitness.
