Why does the app need my height, age, and other private information when I first sign in?
The Loftilla Body Composition Smart Scale uses the Bio-electric Impedance Analysis Method to measure body compositions. An algorithm is used to determine body fat percentage, body mass, etc. based upon the bio-electric impedance, and variables of height, weight, gender and age group.
Loftilla Smart Scale Model CS20M3 doesn’t measure body compositions. Still your height is needed to calculate your BMI.
It is important to provide your correct information (gender, age and height) in order for your measurements to reflect your actual status. Not knowing your profile, the scale can only measure your weight.
Your personal information will be kept private and will only be used for body composition measurements.
