    Theres one on the home page of the site(not the discussion board). I know its not accurate, but how bad do you think it really is?

    to be honest bro, you will get your best guess at it by posting pics and asking the guys/gals to guess the BF

    I got one of those Body Fat scales (hey I was buying a new scale and my BF wanted one with body fat measurement even though i told him how inaccurate it was, but hey hes overweight and in denial about it so i though it would be good enough to show him that he really is overweight). Anyways, those things are WAY off. One day it will be within 1% then next thing you know it can be over 5% off... calipers are much more accurate, don't waste money on one of those scales.

    It seems to be pretty accurate. I dont know anyone with the calipers so i dont really have anything to judge it against.
