This Omron BF508 body composition monitor provides a full body analysis
to help you reach your diet and fitness goals. Omron's range of body
composition monitors can give you accurate and painless body weight and
fat measurements. More than just a scale, a body composition monitor can
help to keep you motivated as you track your diet or fitness progress or
simply as you make basic changes to your lifestyle in order to eat right
and exercise more.
While it is important to monitor your weight, there are other internal
factors that give you a better idea of your overall health. Using its
sensor technology, the BF508 Body Composition Monitor gives you a
painless and accurate total body reading - body weight (in kilograms),
body fat percentage and visceral fat percentage - to help you understand
how efficiently your body is working and to help you reach your fitness
and weight loss goals. Both simple to use and offering accurate results,
the BF508 is the ideal fitness tool to use any time in the comfort of
your own home.
Chewing the fat - What you need to know?
What is body fat?
Our bodies need a certain amount of fat to function effectively, but too
much fat can have a detrimental effect to your overall health. Studies
have shown that a high level of fat in the body, in particular visceral
fat, increases the risk of developing more serious health conditions
such as high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. The level of
body fat you should have will vary depending on age and sex; this chart
indicates what level band you should be in depending on these factors.
Identifying normal body fat levels depending based on age and sex.

What is visceral fat?
Visceral fat or "central obesity", is used to describe the fat that is
located inside the peritoneal cavity - that is, your midsection around
your waist. Rather than being located directly under the skin as
subcutaneous fat, this "visceral fat" can be found in between your
internal organs, many of which are situated in this cavity.
Studies have shown that there is a strong correlation between high
levels of visceral fat and the risk of developing cardiovascular disease
as well as other medical conditions. The BF508 Body Composition Monitor
will give you a reading between 30 levels, to indicate your level of
visceral fat; a normal reading would be between one and nine, with a
reading higher than 15 being very high.
What is subcutaneous fat?
Subcutaneous fat not only accumulates around the stomach but also around
the upper arms, hips and thighs and can cause a distortion of the body's
proportions. Although not directly linked to increased risk of disease,
it is thought to increase pressure on the heart and lead to other
complications. The BF508 Body Composition Monitor does not display
subcutaneous fat ideally, but it is included in the body fat percentage
reading as a whole.
How can you reduce your body fat?
The ideal way to reduce your overall body fat percentage is to take
regular exercise and eat healthily. Using a body composition monitor
such as the BF508 will give you accurate results, so you can monitor
your progress on a fitness regime - or simply keep a check on your
Body fat has low electricity conductivity. The BF508 Body Composition
Monitor measures the body fat percentage by using the Bioelectrical
Impedance (BI) method. Muscles, blood vessels and bones are body tissues
with higher water content that conducts electricity easily. Body fat is
tissue that has little electric conductivity. The BF508 sends an
extremely weak electrical current of 50 kHz through your body to
determine the amount of fat tissue. This weak electrical current is not
felt while operating the BF508. In order for the scale to determine body
composition, it uses the electrical impedance, along with your height,
weight, age and gender information, to generate results based on
pre-determined data of body composition.
