Why is my fat percentage measurement data different from data from other scales?
Therefore no instrument can give absolutely correct results. This product is intended for home use.
Pi.Fit and other household body fat scale manufacturers mostly use BIA measurement methods. It is common for scales with only foot sensors to underestimate body fat in users with a lot of body fat and to overstate the % in lean people such as athletes.
Results may also be different due to different algorithms, therefore, it is suggested that users not fret over differences of absolute values measured by different instruments and equipment, but should pay more attention to relative changes in the values measured by the same equipment over a long period.
We suggest that a user try to use the same assessment system for long-term monitoring and control / measurement of fat percentage. Long-term change can be assessed to obtain a person’s health trend. We believe that tracking this change is more meaningful than the absolute value of a single measurement.

Why does it only record my weight? My body data was not stored.
Why would the sum be more than 100% when stats are added together?
Our body fat scale is used to measure contents of fat tissue, muscle tissue, water, bone and other major tissues in the human body. Because various tissues contain considerable proportion of water, the sum would be more than 100% when measurement results are added.
How do I sync my body measurements to my Smartphone's built in Health App?
Why are my body stats different to the scale at the gym?
The App is there to be used as a point of reference. Body measurements will change as you follow your health and fitness routine. By checking your measurements regularly you are able to track your progress over time.
Method for decreasing errors of fat and water percentage:
Fat percentage obtained by using BIA measurement is closely related to the following parameters: body impedance coefficient/height/weight/age/gender. Therefore, changes in any of these parameters can cause change of fat percentage.
i. The user is required to enter correct height/gender/age. If this data is incorrect, accurate body fat percentage cannot be obtained.
ii. Bare feet are necessary
iii. In order to ensure that the user obtains the standard model body impedance coefficient, the user is required to follow the correct standing posture for measurement.
iv. In order to obtain correct body impedance coefficient at the time of measurement, please place both feet over the metal electrodes and keep still until the end of the measurement process. The entire measurement process will take around 20 seconds.
b. We suggest performing measurements at the same time and under the same conditions every day. The body’s daily weight varies with changes in eating and drinking and can vary between 0.5~2KG.
