You can obsess about your weight, but ever wonder what the number on the scale actually tells you? Nothing much. The better way to understand your overall health lies in body composition.
What’s the difference? Your weight is just your body’s total mass, whereas body composition is what that total mass is made of – i.e., muscle, bone, water, and fat. You could be in a healthy weight range, but if you live a sedentary lifestyle, your fat percentage would be higher than muscle and bone mass. On the other hand, if you have an active lifestyle, you could be the same weight, but your muscle percentage would be higher than fat.
So, why does that matter? Knowing your body composition shows you if your body fat percentage is in a healthy range. Then you’ll know how to make the right changes to get your body goals, and over the long run, minimise the risks of diseases, like heart disease, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
There are various ways to measure your body composition, but some methods can be expensive, or not generally accessible to the public, or downright impractical, while others might even be prone to error if not done correctly. If you’re someone who’s juggling a busy schedule and you’re always on the go, but you want to rock that healthy bod, then you may need an option that’s better suited to your lifestyle.
Say hello to Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA).
What is bioelectrical impedence analysis? It’s a method for estimating body composition, which sends small electrical currents (totally pain-free) through your whole body to see how easily they travel through your tissues. The voltage is measured in order to calculate impedance (resistance) of the body. Most body water is stored in muscle, so, if a person is more muscular there is a high chance that the person will also have more body water, which leads to lower impedance.
So, why go for BIA when you want to measure your body composition? That’s because the method is simple, inexpensive, quick, and non-invasive (no pain, got gain!). There’s no need to buy expensive equipment because BIA sensors come in affordable devices, like the Samsung Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro.
With the Body Composition feature on these smartwatches, you can measure it anytime, anywhere – although, of course, it’s still recommended that you regularly visit a medical professional for the standard health check-ups. Not only that, but you can also record your results on the Samsung Health app. This is great when you track your progress towards a healthier you. The Samsung Health app also provides tips on how you can improve your diet or exercise in order to achieve your body goals.
So, if you’re looking for a method that’s fast, accurate, can be done anytime, anywhere, and stylish, then we have a clear winner – the Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro are the ideal personal fitness tracking companions for measuring your body composition!
In addition, it gives you a whole lot more value when you connect your watch to the Samsung Health app, like a host of other features, for sleep, stress, blood pressure, ECG and more.
