I read an article“Get In Shape With Body Fat Scale https://www.adoriclife.com/Blog-Get-In-Shape-The-Smart-Way-With-The-Bluetooth-Body-Fat-Scale.html”I know that the technology used to measure body fat on scales relies on an electric current/pulse, but how accurate are they and does water/food in the stomach cause the scale to “pick it up” as fat since it’s just an electric current?
Not accurate to the point of being useless. Maybe a DEXA scan if it has been calibrated correctly. Or a BOD POD air displacement measurement. Or a hydrostatic measurement (underwater displacement).
