Features

With this device you can keep track of your weight, body fat percentage and BMI to make sure that you are losing fat, not muscle. The unit has a storage of up to 9 personal data profiles. This means that 9 different people can keep track of their weight loss evolution at the same time. It records personal data like your height, weight, age, and gender. It includes athlete mode and body mass index readings. The advanced technology that the device uses provides with fast and accurate results. As opposed to other models on the market, this device doesn’t provide with readings of the temperature and carbon dioxide percentage in the room. The device comes with the MyoTape, which is a long lasting and sturdy vinyl tape. It’s easy to use. It measures up to 60 inches in length. You can measure any body part with it. In addition, the push-button retraction and locking feature ensure superior accuracy and snug measurement.

Ease of use

Unfortunately, the device isn’t compatible with smartphones or computers. Being a hand-held unit, the readings appear directly on it. The device displays the readings very fast, in only 7 seconds. A problem that a lot of people have complained about is that the measurements differ a lot. On the other hand, there are customers who have described the readings to be perfect, with only a 0.5% difference between them. The device is extremely easy to use and accurate if you use it properly. Just follow the instructions given in the manual and hold the device exactly as it’s shown there. Also, to make the readings more accurate, use the device twice per day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon or evening. Take the measurements with the device every day at the same hours.

Warranty and support

The product comes with a limited one-year warranty. If you need the item to be repaired in this period, you will have to pay the shipping price. In case you’re not sure whether the unit needs to be fixed or you’re simply using it wrong, call the manufacturer’s phone number. You can find their phone number on their website and in the instructions manual that comes with the product.

Final thoughts

The HBF-306C analyzer is slightly different than the other body fat analyzers we have reviewed. It’s a handheld unit that delivers quick readings of your body weight. Although not as advanced as other models that can be connected to a smartphone, this one has its own good features like storage memory for up to 9 users and a measuring tape that lets you keep track of your weight loss progress in inches. Make sure that you use the analyzer properly if you want to receive accurate readings and pair it with the measuring tape for a complete body analysis. The price, however, is a little high for what this device can do, compared to other more developed models.

    Does the unit save information for more users? If so, then for how many?

    • Clara Fleming says:

      This device will actually hold memory for up to 8 users. Therefore, when you are retesting, you do not have to re-enter your personal details such as height, weight, gender, etc., because those values will be already saved.

  2. Nick says:

    Is there a weight limit? I have used this device on a client and body fat kept giving me an error, E6. Why did that happen?

    • Clara Fleming says:

      That error actually comes if the user has a super high level of body fat, more than 50%.

  3. Emily says:

    Are the results accurate?

    • Clara Fleming says:

      This device is without a doubt one of the most accurate ones. However, it is important to use it correctly. What you must do is to make sure the top and the bottom of your palm will cover the metal parts, the middle finger around the grip and thumbs up on top. If you keep your hands in the same spot and your arms out, then you will get the same reading every time.

  4. Richard says:

    Is the scale suitable for children? Thanks.

    • Jake Green says:

      Hello, Richard. Yes, the scale can be used by children over 10, but the measurements may significantly differ due to the fact that they are in a growth stage.

  5. Monica says:

    Can you tell me when is the best time to measure my body fat?

    • Jake Green says:

      Hello, Monica. Specialists say that the best time to measure the body fat percentage is in the morning after waking up. In case you don’t want to measure the body fat in the morning, it’s recommended you use the scale before eating, drinking, exercising, or taking a bath. Also, for accurate results, make sure you use the scale at the same time and under the same circumstances every time.
