It uses Bio-Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology, which generates a weak electrical current that passes through your body to make various measurements. This current is small (less than 0.5mA) and may not be felt. It is safe, toxic-free and non-invasive.

You are recommended not to use the Actxa Sense in the bathroom due to safety and environmental reasons. Not only does it reduce the life span of the scale, the surface might also be too slippery to step on.

There are 5 dedicated measurements that the Actxa Sense can analyse for you to achieve your optimum balance:

 

1. Body Fat (%) – Fat mass expressed as a percentage of total body weight

2. Muscle Mass (%) – The bulk of muscular tissue in a person’s body expressed as a percentage of total body weight

3. Total Body Water (%) – A measure of the intracellular and extracellular fluid compartments of the body

4. Bone Mass (kg) – A measure of the bone and cell mineral content of the body

5. Body Mass Index (BMI) – It is a simple index to classify an individual into different weight categories (overweight, obese or underweight)

PRODUCT RELATED/GENERAL

Bio-Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology, which generates a weak electrical current that passes through your body to make various measurements. This current is small (less than 0.5mA) and may not be felt. It is safe, toxic-free and non-invasive.

There are 5 dedicated measurements that the Actxa Sense can analyse for you to achieve your optimum balance:

 

1. Body Fat (%) – Fat mass expressed as a percentage of total body weight

2. Muscle Mass (%) – The bulk of muscular tissue in a person’s body expressed as a percentage of total body weight

4. Bone Mass (kg) – A measure of the bone and cell mineral content of the body

5. Body Mass Index (BMI) – It is a simple index to classify an individual into different weight categories (overweight, obese or underweight)

 

(Adapted by Heyward, V. H., & Wagner, D. R. (2004). Applied body composition assessment (2nd ed))

1.Body Fat – Body fat percentage gives you a better measure of fitness than weight alone – the composition of your weight loss could mean you are losing muscle mass rather than fat. Body fat also differs from individuals based on their age and gender.

 

2.Muscle Mass – As your muscle mass increases, the ability of burning calories increases which accelerates your basal metabolic rate (BMR) and helps you reduce excess body fat and lose weight in a healthy way.

 

3.Total Body Water – Useful in estimating an individual’s hydration level. Being well-hydrated helps concentration levels, sports performance and general well-being.*

 

4.Bone Mass – Useful indicator for your overall bone health. The lower the bone mass, the higher the risk of having bone fractures.

 

5.Body Mass Index (BMI) – An indication of risks related to the respective weight classifications (e.g. if you are underweight, you have risk of osteoporosis in the later life). However, BMI is just a number and does not take into account the composition of an individual’s body weight. Therefore, Actxa Sense helps to identify the different body composition components for health and fitness purposes.

 

*Your hydration level may fluctuate based on external factors (e.g. exercise, illness, consumption of caffeine/alcohol, menstruation). Kids and babies may also have a larger body water percentage than adults.

Having the knowledge of one’s body composition allow individuals to formulate exercise prescriptions or seek for nutritional advices. It is advisable to balance out with physical activities and good nutrition to avoid developing health-related diseases.
You need 4 x AAA batteries (6V).
An athlete is defined as one who exercises more than 12 hours a week.
This setting may affect the accuracy of your body composition.
It will affect the calculations for each physiological formula.
Actxa Sense is adjusted to take account of the different demographics of each user.
The difference between each user has to be at least 0.5kg in order for Actxa Sense to differentiate between them. If the weight is too similar between 2 users, the scale will prompt 2 UserIDs for you to choose from.
This is possible if your weight is very similar to another Sense users. There will only be 2 users appearing at one time. The “UP” arrow indicates one user, while the “DOWN” arrow indicates the other. Simply press the arrow to select your UserID. If there are more than 2 users with similar weight, wait for 5 seconds. The other UserID options will be displayed subsequently.

SOFTWARE

The results will appear 3 times on the scale after you weigh.
However, if you wish to keep track of your readings, please keep your mobile device near and launch the Actxa app while you weigh.
Once you sync to Actxa app, you will be able to see your readings on the Dashboard and keep track of your weight trends under History.

If you wish to change your age, gender, height or activity level, you are recommended to make any profile changes through the Actxa app (Account > Profile).
On the next weigh, you will be prompted to choose between the scale or app’s profile. Select “Use App’s” and weigh yourself again.

This will occur when the Actxa app has failed to receive any weigh logs of the correct user from the Actxa Sense smart scale. Check if you have selected the correct user before you enter the weighing screen.
This will occur when your profile (age/gender/height/activity level) is different between the Actxa Sense smart scale and the Actxa app. You will be given two options to choose from: “Use Scale’s” and “Use App’s”. If you select Use Scale’s, the profile on your app will be changed to be the same. However, if you choose “Use App’s”, the profile on the scale will only be changed on your next weigh.
Go to Devices > Actxa Sense Smart Scale > Users. Add a new user by clicking on any of the ‘+’ button.
