This is my 2nd Omron full body sensor product, the first being the previous version of this one [a couple years ago so I don t remember the model number]. We only replaced our original product after the display lights were unreadable and the warranty was out. After checking the marketplace for a replacement, I decided on the Omron because of my satisfaction with the prior unit -- except for the display issue.
This unit is simple to operate and easy to read; the large digital display is easily observed from standing atop the scale. As for accuracy, it seems to have a bit more reliability compared to my last unit. No, I haven t been tested in a vat of water for my BMI but I do monitor it weekly and have done enough research to know that the unit is providing me w/accurate enough information.
I have a desk job that does allow me to get out of the chair for 2-3 hrs/day most weeks. I m not a competitive athlete but am physically active, working out 4 times/week, 2 days w/weights and 2 aerobically, plus a couple nights of Krav Maga/week. All that to establish some credibility w/you and let you know that I m like alot of guys in their late 40 s doing what s necessary to stay in shape.
If you are into taking care of yourself, I think you ll be satisfied w/this Omron product.
