Just because something measures to a tenth of a percent does not mean that it is accurate if the method used is not inherently accurate. The tenth of a percent is meaningless.

Actually all 3 machines I used were Tanitas (different models). I pretty much stopped using them. I use a scale for weight sometimes and do the eyeball test for flab. I measure my progress by what I am able to do physical tests of endurance or strength not what is my body fat %
