It auto calculates BMI by weight and height, which is a terrible idea. Muscle weighs more than fat, so anyone who uses this program will be told that they're overweight if they strength train. The only effective way to measure BMI is to use calipers or neck taping in conjunction with height and weight measurements. By higi standards, I am considered "obese" and have over 30% body fat when a caliper measurement checks me at 18%.
The scanner doesn't work to capture my info on the higi station.
There is supposed to be a way to capture results with the app when the station is offline. However there is no "capture " listed in the options
Tried it @ Sam's club while waiting for Rx and liked it.
The Higi Andorid app should be 99% open sourced, as it is still full of bugs and functional defects. The Higi Website should also be 90% open sourced, as it has some of the same problems as the Android app. Most importantly, the Higi Stations themselves are a reprobate festival of bugs. It is a shame that the Android app give you your weight with 2 digits of precision, but totally refuses to do so at the measurement station. The measurement stations fail to ask you or give you 3 random choices for what you think your clothing weight is. AND THE HIGI SCIENCE (acceptable blood pressure differentials for age) should also be open sourced. Higi stations are out of compliance with the currently acceptable EU standards for BP measurement. The Systolic vs Diastolic are actually less important than the difference between the two. It is medical snake oil to only these, not Sys - Dys = Differential ... where that differential should be in the range from 35 to 50.
We make frequent improvements to the app. Update to the latest version to make the most of higi! This update includes minor bug fixes in an effort to make the app more stable.
