Just How Fat Are Your Arms?

The new HBF-355 scale, made by the Japanese company Omron Healthcare, does all the basics like measuring body weight and fat ratio but it can also weigh specific parts of your body like your arms, legs, or torso, helping you target your fitness regimen. The description also reads, "The HBF-355 indicates the amount of fat accumulated in internal organs in three grades." Perhaps it offers just a little too much information.
If that's not enough, the InnerScan BC-522 can measure bone volume, visceral fat, basal metabolism, and muscle mass.
Only in Japan for now, but I have a feeling they will show up all over the world pretty soon.
