    hey etech, i got the same scale, when u set it do u select the athletic male icon? or the regular male? cuz the regular male says im 22 percent but the athletic male reading says 19.6% which one should i be using? im pretty active weight wise and 2-3 times a week cardio.

    I started out pretty fat so I have always used the regular setting.

    From what I remember you have to be really in great shape for the athletic setting to be accurate.

    Don't care, I'm using it for a relative reading, not an absolute. For relative tracking, they work pretty well if you are consistent in how you use them.
