With the Omron Fat Loss Monitor (HBF-306CN), you can accurately and easily track body fat percentage and body mass index (BMI). Tracking body fat percentage in addition to body weight lets you know if you’re losing the “right” weight — fat instead of muscle and the fat loss monitor can also be set to two separate modes, either normal or athletic depending on your activity level. This fat loss monitor can be set for either US or metric and provides readings in just seconds. By monitoring your progress in losing body fat, you can reach your goals faster.
- Measures two body fat percentage and body mass index (BMI) with a gentle, micro electrical current
- Can be set to either normal or athletic mode based on your activity level
- Features a nine person memory profile, plus a guest mode
- Can be set for US or metric measurement
- Readings in just seconds
Note: This monitor cannot be used with a pacemaker or other implanted devices. Consult with the manufacturer of the implanted device and your physician prior to using this monitor.

The Fat Loss Monitor displays the estimated value of body fat percentage by the Bioelectrical Impedance (BI) method and indicates the Body Mass Index (BMI) range with the BMI classification bar.
Bioelectrical Impedance Method
Muscles, blood vessels and bones are body tissues having a high water content that conduct electricity easily.
Body fat tissue has lower electric conductivity. The Fat Loss Monitor sends an extremely low-level electrical current of 50 kHz and 500 µA through your body to determine the amount of fat tissue. This weak electrical current is safe and not felt while operating the Fat Loss Monitor.
There are certain conditions when significant differences may occur between the estimated and the actual body fat values. These differences may be related to changing ratios of body fluid and/or body composition. The body fat percentage measured by this unit may significantly differ from the actual body fat percentage in the following situations:
- Children in growth stage
- Women who are pregnant
- Elderly people
- Post-menopausal women
- People with a fever
- People who having swelling
- Body builders or professional athletes
- Patients undergoing dialysis
- Patients with osteoporosis who have very low bone density
