I'm looking for accurate online means to calc BF%. Check this one out:
http://www.healthcentral.com/cholesterol/home-body-fat-test-2774-143.html?&2,52, 192,0,1

I'd like to see others that are deemed accurate to a sensible degree of error, if there is such thing online.

I just got mine tested a few days ago and it was 8.1%, and the online test said 10.5%. I suppose it's ballpark. If you really want to test it accurately I would suggest a caliper, but some might consider that a superfluous purchase.

Back in April, using calipers, I was 9% BF and about the same using a set of scales that measures bodyfat. I typed in my measurements from back then, and it said 13.5%.

I'm 12 lbs heavier now and my scales say about 11%. I typed in all my current measurements, all of which are almost identical (waist is 1" larger; all my measurements that changed for the better, such as biceps and quads, aren't input parameters) to before and it computed 12%. I don't see how it could possibly go that direction between then and now, based on the numbers I typed in.
