The human body is made up of, amongst other things, a percentage of fat. This is vital for a healthy, functioning body - it cushions joints and protects vital organs, helps regulate body temperature, stores vitamins and helps the body sustain itself when food is scarce. However, too much body fat or indeed too little body fat can be damaging to your health. It is difficult to gauge how much body fat we have in our bodies simply by looking at ourselves in the mirror. This is why it is important to measure and monitor your body fat percentage. Body fat percentage gives you a better measure of fitness than weight alone – the composition of your weight loss could mean you are losing muscle mass rather than fat - you could still have a high percentage of fat even when a scale indicates ‘normal weight’.

Body water is the single most important component of body weight. It represents over half of your total weight and almost two thirds of your lean body mass (predominantly muscle). Water performs a number of important roles in the body: All the cells in the body, whether in the skin, glands, muscles, brain or anywhere else, can only function properly if they have enough water. Water also plays a vital part in regulating the body’s temperature balance, particularly through perspiration. The combination of your weight and fat measurement could appear to be ‘normal’ but your body hydration level could be insufficient for healthy living.

According to the American College of Sports Medicine (ASCM), lean muscle mass may decrease by nearly 50 percent between the ages of 20 and 90. If you don’t do anything to replace that loss you’re losing muscle and increasing fat. It is also important to know your muscle mass % during weight reduction. At rest, the body burns approximately 110 additional calories for each kilo of muscle gained. Some advantages of gaining muscle mass include:
  • Reversing the decline in strength, bone density and muscle mass that accompanies age
  • Maintenance of flexible joints
  • Guide weight reduction when combined with a healthy diet.
This product is for domestic use only. Pregnant women should only use the weight function.
CAUTION : Do not use this product if you have a pacemaker or other medical device fitted. If in doubt, consult your doctor.
Body Mass Index (BMI) is an index of weight-for-height that is commonly used to classify underweight, overweight and obesity in adults. This scale calculates your BMI value for you. The BMI categories shown in the chart and table below are recognised by the WHO (World Health Organisation) and can be used to interpret your BMI value.
Your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is an estimation of the energy (measured in calories) expended by the body, at rest, to maintain normal body functions. This continual work makes up about 60-70% of the calories the body uses, and includes the beating of your heart, respiration, and the maintenance of body temperature. Your BMR is influenced by a number of factors, including age, weight, height, gender, dieting and exercise habits.
Regular exercise and a balanced diet can help maintain healthy bones. Like muscle, bone is a living tissue that can respond to exercise by becoming stronger. For most people, bone mass peaks during their thirties. After that time, we can begin to lose bone. Regular exercise can help prevent that loss. Calcium and vitamin D contribute to healthy bones. Good sources of these are dairy products, green leafy vegetables and fish. The bone mass readings given by this product are an estimation of the amount of bone in your body. Those with osteoporosis or low bone densities may not get accurate estimations. If you have concerns regarding your bones you should always consult your doctor.

Looks good
does not save all information in the memory, icons too small to read easily no information on the readings what they mean? Not as described on the box it says 10 user memory but it only remembers your personal details height, gender and weight?

User Guide


This Salter scale uses BIA (Bio Impedance Analysis) technology which passes a tiny electrical impulse through the body to determine fat from lean tissue, the electrical impulse cannot be felt and is perfectly safe. Contact with the body is made via stainless steel pads on the platform of the scale. This method simultaneously calculates your personal weight, body fat, total body water and BMI giving you a more accurate reading of your overall health and fitness. This scale stores the personal data of up to 8 users. As well as being an analyser scale, this scale can be used as a conventional scale.

This scale features our convenient step-on operation. Once initialised the scale can be operated by simply stepping straight on the platform – no more waiting!


  1. Open the battery compartment on the scale underside.
  2. Insert batteries (3 x AAA) observing the polarity signs (+ and -) inside the battery compartment.
  3. Close the battery compartment.
  4. For use on carpet attach enclosed carpet feet. 5. Position scale on a firm flat surface.


  1. Press the platform centre and remove your foot.
  2. ‘0.0’ will be displayed.
  3. To change weight mode (kg/lb/st) press the or button.

  • Always weigh yourself on the same scale placed on the same floor surface. Do not compare weight readings from one scale to another as some differences will exist due to manufacturing tolerances.
  • Placing your scale on a hard, even floor will ensure the greatest accuracy and consistency.
  • It is recommended that you measure at the same time of the day, preferably early evening before a meal for the most consistent results.
  • Your scale rounds up or down to the nearest increment.
    If you weigh yourself twice and get two different readings, your weight lies between the two.
  • Clean your scale with a damp cloth. Do not use chemical cleaning agents.
  • Do not allow your scale to become saturated with water as this can damage the electronics.
  • Treat your scale with care - it is a precision instrument. Do not drop it or jump on it.
  • Caution: the platform may become slippery when wet.
