Warrior Digital Body Fat Caliper FAQs!
The 10 Top Frequently Asked Questions
1) Why is the screen so big?
Warrior uses a large screen to display current and past measurements and results in real time. So once you take a measurement, you can immediately see if you had a performance improvement over your last measurement. The display shows current and last skinfold measurements, weight, body fat %, and lean body mass.
2) How do I ensure pressure accuracy with the Warrior? Isn’t pressure the most important thing when taking a measurement?
The most important thing to do in a body fat test is to have the correct pressure while pinching your skin. The Warrior has a highly calibrated steel spring and triggering mechanism inside the jaws of the caliper. When the pressure is exactly 10 grams per square centimeter, the Warrior will “BEEP” and the measurement will record. Unlike a mechanical caliper, the measurement won’t change once it locks in the measurement.
3) How do I know that the digital technology is accurate?
The Warrior uses sophisticated Jackson-Pollack 3 site measurement equations for measuring body fat. These are the most common equations used by physicians and trainers around the world.
4) What is lean body mass and why do I want to know it?
Lean body mass is basically your weight of muscle. Warrior calculates this by figuring out your weight of body fat and subtracting it from your body weight. This is an important indicator if you are on a fat loss and muscle building program. The higher your lean body mass is as a % of your weight, the more you are improving your musculature and lowering your body fat.
