How can I calculate body fat percentage using fitbit devises?
Hi everyone! I have always known, that if you care about your health, you should track your weight. But a couple of days ago I read, that it’s not enough just to weight yourself. Also, we must care about the fat percentage in our body.
The article says, that a fat percentage rate in a woman’s body should be within this limits:
- age up to 3 years – 15-23%;
- age 3o-5o years – 19-25%;
- age from 5 to 2–27%.
But how can I do this? Can I use Fitbit devices to solve this problem? Then if so, what should I buy, to receive the best result. Because there is a lot of different staff presented by this company.
The main product line of the company includes bracelets – fitness trackers (smart bracelets), and a “smart” Wi-Fi scales.
I found that a characteristic feature of the products is that they have wireless modules. These modules allow you to synchronize your device through a laptop or smartphone with the cloud. Thanks to this, the user’s physical activity of Fitbit devices is available to his friends. Information can also be received and analyzed on different devices (smartphone app, web browser) with access to the Internet.
Can you give me some piece of advice? Is it worth to buy?
