BodySpex FAQ

Thank you for visiting our FAQ. Please login to post a comment or question below.


I forgot my password.  You can retrieve a BodySpex password by going to our login page, click "forgot password" and enter your email address. Your password will be emailed to you.

I took a test, but never got an email with my results.  An email will usually be sent within a couple minutes of a BodySpex scale test. There are several reasons why you may not get it.

  • It was sent, but went into your spam folder. Please flag as a safe sender.
  • There was a typo in your email address when you registered. Please check your email address when registering. To find out if an email address is in our system, you can request a forgotten password.
  • The scale is temporarily offline due to an Internet interruption at your host facility. Should this be the case, the scale will cache your test results and trigger an email once a connection is re-established. Although we monitor our scales, please contact us if you experience a prolonged delay and we will work with your club to get back online.

I took a test a long time ago, do you still have my results?  Yes. Login to retrieve them.

How can I change my scale settings, like height or body type?  Scale settings are editable via your online account. If you have not yet joined our website, register with the same email and password you use on our scale. Then login and click the About Me link found under My Account.

How frequently should I take a body fat test?  We believe one body fat test per week is adequate.

How much does a test cost?  Tests with online results are free. A valid email is required. After your test, you will receive an email with a link to view your results. Depending on your scale host arrangement, results may also be immediately available onscreen or via a printout for free. If immediate test results at your scale location are not already available, you may purchase a scale subscription for $2 per month. Visit your MyScale page for more info.

Is it safe to take a body fat test with your scale?  Yes. We use a market-leading Tanita Corporation┬« bioelectrical impedance analysis unit. When taking a test in the body fat test mode, the scale sends a weak electrical current through your body (most people can't even feel it). Individuals who have a pacemaker or other internal medical devices should not use the BodySpex Scale in the body fat testing mode. Read our cautions for more info.

Is there a way to get the old scale info and measurements? I started using this in May 2008, but this new bodyspex only shows the scale from Nov.

Hi aanita66, all of your test data is saved, but your measurement history is only displaying the 10 most recent results. This sounds like why you only see results since November. We can change the display to show more results. Thank you for your comment.
