Omron HBF-500 Body Composition Monitor with Scale

Omron HBF-500My girlfriend is so happy. She found this great scale the Omron HBF-500. It measures everything, but the magazine she saw it in wanted $133!

So I said "did you check the Internet?" so I did a quick search and found that there is an instant rebate at Amazon.com  It was $65 bucks.

What does this thing do? (more like what it doesn't do).
It monitors your weight, body fat, and visceral fat. I went "What is visceral fat?"  Visceral fat is located around the organs. Too much visceral fat is thought to be closely linked to increased level of fat in the bloodstream, which can lead to common conditions such as high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Sedentary life style causes excess visceral fat, and exercise can reduce it quicker than subcutaneous fat (fat located under skin). anyway.. getting back to what it does…

Calculates visceral fat, resting metabolism and skeletal muscle mass levels " all which are helpful indicators when determining your calorie intake and exercise levels. Displays body fat percentage, weight and BMI to help you fine tune your weight loss. Uses full body sensing technology hand grip and foot electrodes to facilitate a highly accurate reading. Stores personalized information for up to four people. Built-in memory lets you track your progress along the way. Unique pull-up handlebar display screen. 330lb. capacity. Age: 18 +; Height: 3"4 " 6"6.

The "Smaller Brother" is the HBF-400 and it does almost as much (no fancy pull up handlebars), but both allow you to track multiple people (great for families) in the scale. For more information click this link for information at Amazon.com
