Allows for quick and easy readings direct from the Smart Scales. Our user-friendly Precision Smart Scales accurately measure and display your weight (Kg, St:lb and lbs), Visceral Fat, BMI, BMR, Body Fat, Muscle Mass, Bone Mass and Hydration.

The Activ8rlives Body Analyser Smart Scales does a lot more than just measure your weight— it helps you understand how your body is changing in response to lifestyle choices you are making. It measures your % fat and % protein (muscle). It also measures your visceral fat—a key parameter linked to type 2 diabetes. The quick set-up of your Activ8rlives Body Analyser Smart Scales will take just 5 minutes.

How Does the Activ8rlives Body Analyser Work?
The Activ8rlives Body Analyser Smart Scales uses a measurement principle known as Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA). A very small electrical current is sent through your body, through your feet and legs. The current flows with little electrical resistance through lean muscular tissue, which is full of fluid. By contrast, body fat has a high electrical resistance—it acts as an electrical insulator. By measuring your body’s resistance to the current (its impendence), the proportion of muscle can be calculated. From this, the quantity of fat and water can then be estimated.
The size of the current used is only about 1 mAmp—this is a minuscule current and you will not feel it. However, the Activ8rlives Body Analyser Smart Scales should NOT be used by those fitted with a pace maker or if you have any other electrically-operated medical device fitted. Very lean athletes may find that the measurement of muscle and fat may not be as accurate as a full-body scan technology.

What’s the Best Time to Measure Your Body Composition
Our water content can vary at different times during the day and since body fat percentage is calculated by measuring the water content, our body fat reading can also vary throughout the day. There is no right or wrong time of the day to take a reading, but we find it most consistent to measure our body weight and water content first thing in the morning before eating or drinking and after using the toilet. It is about making the measurement consistent.
Taking measurements after having a bath or sauna, or following intensive exercise, or within 1-2 hours of drinking in quantity or eating a meal as the water content will distort the values generated.
Never attempt to take readings when you are wet, after a shower or vigorous exercise, because of the risk of slipping. Also, the accuracy of the measurement will be distorted as the water content of the body would have changed.

Bluetooth connecting to your Smartphone or Tablet
The Activ8rlives Body Analyser connects via Bluetooth 4.0 and uploads data to Activ8rlives4 Health+Wellness App. It works with Bluetooth Smart Ready devices (typically Bluetooth 4.0 or later). iPhone 5 or later, iPad 4th Generation or later, iPad Mini 2 or later, all iPad Air and iPad Pro models or iPod Touch 6th generation.

What data is collected?
The reading from the Activ8rlives Body Analyser will display the weight on the smart scale LCD Display. The Activ8rlives4 Health+Wellness App displays as a more comprehensive set of measurements. You will also see your previous 3 readings.
Your data can be shown in a Charts mode and you scroll down the page to see other parameters of your health, such as your BMI, Lung function, wellness or stress levels or anything else you would like to record about your health and wellbeing.
When looking at your data, a Trackball function allows you to touch a bar chart or data point for a specific date and it will give the reading and its date. You can scroll left or right to look at your data. You can display over different timeframes, by changing the time from the bottom Range Days: 7, 30, 90, 365 days or All data.
When you are in the Charts view you can change the Data View for how you would like your data to be displayed. Play around with your settings to optimise the Charts for you.
Colour coding of parameters within normal Green, alert Amber and out of parameter Red readings are easily seen on these Charts where the background colour indicates the population normal ranges.
Within this section you can start to see trends of what affects your other health parameters, and you begin to learn healthy behaviours or detect declining health.

Weight Change Widget

You can also Set-up a short-term goal for Weight Loss or Weight Gain within the Activ8rlives4 Health+Wellness App.
Selecting to use an Advanced or Expert Dashboard, you can add the Weight Change widget to your Dashboard. Follow the instructions to Enter Your Starting Weight (with an option to take a current reading) and Enter Your Current Height.
Next Enter Your Target Weight Loss (or Gain until it shows Green). Tip: Enter a Target Weight that is achievable in the short-term, as a suggestion try for 5% of your body weight.
The next screen allows you to Enter Your Target Date for your Weight Loss or Weight Gain. Try shorter term goals in which to achieve this, and 10 weeks is an ideal length. The Activ8rlives4 Health+Wellness App will then calculate how much each week you will need to change.
The Activ8rlives4 Health+Wellness App will display your Weight Change widget on the Dashboard see above. By touching this it opens to a more detailed screen of your Weight Loss or Weight Gain over your selected time, with a Chart showing your progress and your Change Since Goal Set.
