Weight numbers are accurate. I can't speak to how precise my fat measurements are, though, those are based solely on my inexperienced self measuring with calipers (using the above-the-hip-bone method as suggested by the packaging). I always make several sets of readings to be as sure as possible, but I suppose it's easily likely that I'm screwing up or that I my method sucks. I don't know enough on that front to tell, honestly.
