I'm contemplating investing in a set of these to gauge how the new diet is doing. Does anyone have any experience with them?

I have never tried these for myself either. But I heard that some of them are rather good for the purpose. You might want to get one that is very accurate.

Not sure how to tell how accurate one is mind you. I did buy a set though. They apparently measure body fat by sending a pulse through your feet. As the pulse travels at different speeds through muscle and fat they can estimate your percentage from the time it takes to get back. According to the scales I have 7% body fat.

No idea how accurate that is but I suppose as long as you're comparing like with like you can see your progress each day.

Interesting.

How much were those scales? I take it they do normal stuff like weigh you as well?

Do you get much variation in the body fat measurement?
