The InBodyBAND is using Bioelectrical impedance analysis. BIA is considered one of the most reliable and accessible methods of screening body fat. BIA measures the impedance or resistance to the signal as it travels through the water that is found in muscle and fat. Thus, the more muscle a person has, the more water their body can hold. The greater the amount of water in a person's body, the easier it is for the current to pass through it. In other words, more fat, higher resistance. With this technology built in the InBodyBAND, and the information such as your body weight and height, the band is able to calculate your body fat by percentage. Users can use this number as an indicative number to improve his/her overall fitness level.
It is an activity tracker that calculates your Body Fat Percentage, Muscle Mass, Body Fat Mass, BMR and BMI. Utilising two finger electrodes on the top of the band and two wrist electrodes at the bottom of the screen, the InBodyBAND calculates your body composition in less than ten seconds. It also tracks heart rate with ECG electrodes, sleep patterns, calories eaten and consumed, and steps taken. InBody also connects to the user’s smartphones via bluetooth, and the data can be uploaded and monitored through the BODYKEY App. The InBodyBAND combines technology of BIA (Bioelectrical Impedance) with the accessibility of an activity tracker.
