NO.
All establish methods work, some better then others, depending on who's doing the testing, and if water testing, how well you exhale breath and hold while sitting underwater.

Re: measuring body fat

I use my belt. Its been on the same hole for 12 months now. Amazingly, I'm 8 pounds heavier than when I bought the belt at 170 pounds, yet at 178 its on the same loop.

Go CrossFit and IF!
