4 Tips To Using the Best Body Fat Percentage App

Updated on January 23, 2021

Technological advancements have made it easy to track physical fitness and health using mobile fitness applications such as FitTrack Health. The app helps track vital health and fitness indicators on a daily basis.

But to get the best out of a fitness app, it is imperative to know how to use it properly. The apps vary in terms of design, content, and data tracking techniques. However, they all do the same job.

Here are four essential tips to help you to use FitTrack mobile app to accurately track your body fat levels alongside other fitness indicators. 

Know how to Install, Register, and Maintain the App

Most health and fitness apps today are available on Google Play Store and Apple Store. Some of them are also available on PC. For Android phones, you can download the app from Google Play Store, and for iPhones, you can download it from the Apple Store.

Once you have downloaded, open the app, and then register to give you access to the app features. Your account credentials will allow you to sync your phone and collect personalized data. The app will provide you with essential indicators that you can track, including your weight, bone mass, body mass index, basal metabolic rate, and body fat, among other indicators. The metrics measured by the app allows you to monitor your health and fitness daily.

As with any mobile app, you must update your app to fix current performance issues and bugs. Using an outdated FitTrack app will affect how it connects with your FitTrack Smart Scale or give you wrong data. If you experience any problem using the app, you can always uninstall and reinstall it back again. The good thing is your data will still be there. 

Know-How to Connect to Other Fittrack Devices

Once you have set up your app, you will need to sync it and connect it to other FitTrack devices.

The app goes hand in hand with the FitTrack Dara Smart Scale. Without the scale, then the app will not be of much help as you will need it to weigh yourself and know your body fat percentage. The connection between the two devices is straightforward as it only requires a Bluetooth connection.

The devices will pair with each other, and the synchronization will happen automatically every time you use them. Once you are done, you can stand on the smart scale and collect your first FitTrack data. The mobile app also connects to FitTrack’s Atria 2.0 Health Smartwatch and the Beebo Family Smart Scale via Bluetooth.

It is important to take time and go through the app to familiarize yourself with all its aspects.

Select Appropriate Exercising Modes

Now that you have paired your new smart scale with your health app, you can now start your exercise regime. There are three exercising modes available on the app. These include standard, athlete, and pregnancy & baby mode.

If you want to track the normal indicators, then select the standard mode.

The athlete mode is suitable if you are doing intense workouts or have an active lifestyle. With the athlete mode, you can track your weight loss indicators. After every workout session, you can weigh yourself on the Smart scale and check your body fat’s current levels.

To get the most from the app, you can use the guided exercises preloaded on the app. If you are pregnant or want to weigh your baby, you can select the Pregnancy & Baby mode. The app uses advanced formulas and algorithms to collect, analyze and give you appropriate data based on your weight, height, exercise time, and exercise levels.

Know What Data to Collect and How to Analyze It

A lot of data is collected and stored in the app, and it is imperative to know what type of data to collect and how to use that data to track your progress.

Your fitness and health goal will inform such. For instance, if you want to lose weight, then one set of data to track is the Body Fat Percentage. You can choose to collect the data daily, weekly, or monthly and share it with your trainer, doctor, or nutritionist to help you make informed decisions.

With the data, you can plan your exercises to attain maximum results. The app’s historical data will help you to track your progress and inform you where you currently stand on achieving your fitness goals.  For extra motivation, the app allows you to add eight people from which you can collect, compare, and analyze your workouts’ daily records.
