There is a big number of people out there who, for fear of going to the doctor's, prefer trying and “guessing” the disease they suffer from based on certain symptoms, at the same time purchasing medicine for something they don't really suffer from. Moreover, there are quite a few people that prefer exercising on their own, without checking their routine with a professional first, something that, once again, can have bad effects.
Unfortunately, we might say, the market is filled with all sorts of products that tempt people to “indulge” into these practices, and that's exactly the type of gadget you'll read about as follows, namely the Body Check Ball presented by the Japan Trend Shop.
According to the vendor, this device comes equipped with sensors to read the user's body fat, bone density, and muscle percentages, and displays them all on an easy-to-read LCD screen. Furthermore, its design makes it usable by a larger number of people, and for this reason, it can easily store up to ten different user profiles.
The Body Check Ball also offers users clock and alarm functions (so that they know when to stop the exercise routine), and is powered by 4 x AAA batteries. Plus, it's safe to say that it won't take too much space around the house, given the fact that it measures 74x80x78mm and is easy to carry around, since it weighs around 120 grams.
The Body Check Ball sells for about 40 US dollars, which is a fairly OK price point, given the features the device can provide. However, a word of advice... if you're really concerned about your body and its state, it's perhaps for the best to visit a professional trainer or fitness expert, rather then relying on this thing.
