  • Product Overview

    Our Fat Callipers are a precision instrument that use skinfold thickness to measure body fat. They come with a convenient measurement chart for males and females, ages 18-65, which can be used as a guideline for calculating body fat. Ideal when you’re trying to get shaped and toned.

     

    Measurement Range: Approx. 0-2.76inch/0-7cm

  • Key Benefits
    • Accurate body fat measurements
    • Ideal for personal trainers
    • Very light and easy to transport
  • Suggested Use

    For accurate and repeatable tests, follow the below guidelines for taking skinfold measurements. Following a standard method of assessment helps ensure accuracy and repeatability on future testing.

    • Instruct the test subject to keep the muscles relaxed during the test.
    • Mark the skinfold site using a pen with water soluble ink. Use a tape measure to accurately find the mid-points.
    • The skinfold should be firmly grasped by the thumb and index finger, using the pads at the tip of the thumb and finger. Gently pull the skinfold away from the body.
    • The Caliper should be placed perpendicular to the fold, on the site marked, dial up, at approximately 1 cm below the finger and thumb. While maintaining the grasp of the skinfold, allow the Caliper to be released so that full tension is placed on the skinfold.
    • A minimum of two measurements should be taken at each site. If repeated tests vary by more than 1 mm, repeat the measurement. If consecutive measurements become increasingly smaller, the fat is being compressed. Go to another site and come back a little later and recheck the problem site.
    • The final value recorded should be the average of the two that seems best to represent the skinfold fat site.

Where reviews refer to foods or cosmetic products, results may vary from person to person. Customer reviews are independent and do not represent the views of Myprotein.

Too flimsy to be reliable

I hate to be negative, but after following the instructions provided and checking with several online methods of estimating body fat with calipers, it's clear that these are terribly inaccurate. Either that or my body fat percentage really is under 7%, and somebody should inform my bathroom mirror.

Cheap and Nasty

I'm a big fan of all Myprotein products so hate to be negative but these calipers are terrible. The clicker designed to show you how hard to press actives before you even touch any skin. The instructions using 1 point method is also very inaccurate. If you want accurate results or even just results for that matter I highly suggest spending a bit more elsewhere and getting decent calipers.

Skinfold calliper

Really simple piece of kit that does exactly what you want it to. Very clear and simple instructions and analysis chart. Very good price. Great buy.

Calipers

Very economic way to track bodyfat levels. Calipers aren't the most accurate but they're definately one of the most economic and most accessible ones. For only a few quid you get a decent set. I think my only criticism would be that they do tend to 'wear' after a few months of weekly use. But they're made out of plastic and cost a few quid, so you're still getting what you pay for. Ideally I'd like MP to supply a more robust metal option, obviously at an increased price. That being said, if you're currently not tracking your BF along with your weight, you really need to. And here is where to start. Get some.

Good

Easy to use and the price was very economic.

Skinfold callipers

Great for keeping track of fat loss

These are great calipers and would much prefer to measure progress with body fat reduction with these than standing on a set of scales as I don't see how they can tell u anything other than ur weight accurately.

Fat measure

It does what it is supposed to! Easy to use, understandable results.
Goes Well With:
Low body fat

Calipers

Really can't complain for the price. Cheap and relatively effective. They do wear out eventually and you'll need to buy another. Certainly worth it.
Goes Well With:
weight and circumference measurements.

Awful design

This is the most frustrating thing to use. The "clicker" mechanism causes the measurement slider to annoyingly slip out of place when you use it. Do not buy.
