I’ve been wearing my Garmin Vívosport almost non-stop for a month, with only short breaks to take a shower or charge it up. (Gotta catch all that data!) Everything seemed fine until today.
The InBody 570 Body Composition Analyzer measures body fat using the same basic principle as a home bathroom scale: electrical conductivity. However, this machine uses much more sophisticated technology.
Since seeing the results of my DEXA scan, I couldn’t shake that dire warning:
You may want to discuss this with your health care provider.
I’m using Strava to track my walk, run, and bicycle activities. Luckily for me, Strava has built-in integration with Apple HealthKit, so my daily Active Energy (calories used during exercise) is automatically copied into the Health app. There’s just one tiny problem…
It’s time to take the data back. As described in yesterday’s post about the Fitbit Aria2 smart scale, I’ve been tracking my weight for a while in the Fitbit App. It should be easy to copy the data into the Health app on iOS, right? Not so fast.
Now that I’m on a journey to reduce my body fat percentage, I need better measurements to assess my progress. I’m still skeptical of digital bathroom scales that claim to measure body fat, but is there anything better?
Almost one third of my body is fat. Whoa. But first, let’s step back a couple weeks to see what led to this.
