Knowing what your body is composed of is important, as this can help you more accurately monitor your health. Fitrus Plus is a new device that might help. It measures body composition including body fat percentage, muscle mass, BMI and more.
Similar to how smart scales work, the hand-held gizmo uses Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) to come up with these metrics. Mind you, tracking is not 24/7. Because body composition cannot be altered quickly, you are meant to take a weekly reading, at most.
To do so, just press your fingers against the two electrodes on the sides. A few seconds is all it takes for your readings to be transferred via Bluetooth to the accompanying smartphone app. OneSoftDigm Corp suggests users take measurements early in the morning before any activity or food intake, as taking a measurement after a meal or a workout may result in skewed results. Fitrus Plus is apparently 98.8% precise when it comes to these readings.

For a more accurate picture of your health, the gizmo also dishes out info on oxygen saturation, basal metabolic rate, skin temperature, stress and steps (through the device and smartphone). The accompanying app allows users to monitor trends so they can form better habits. If you are diligent about logging your readings, the Fitrus Plus app will be able to use this information and your body type to provide provide a customized exercise and nutrition plan.
Fitrus Plus is not really a replacement for a fitness tracker or smartwatch. Rather, its something you can keep in your bag or purse to help you keep tabs on your health. Ideal for those on the go, the device is available on Kickstarter starting at $129 (50% off the retail price). Delivery is expected in the Fall.
