If you’re like most Filipinos, the recent Yuletide season was mostly likely filled with special moments around the dining table, enjoying delicious holiday meals with family and loved ones. With food being a central part of Filipino celebrations and salo-salo and handaan still pushed while keeping to health protocols, post-holiday thoughts include weight gain concerns.
Overindulgence in food and drinks and lack of exercise during the holidays can increase the risks of obesity, which is fast becoming a major health problem in the country. The Philippines currently has a moderate risk score in the national obesity risk scoring by the World Obesity Federation (WOF). A WOF report released in March 2021 also showed that adult obesity rates in the country experienced very rapid growth from 1995 to 2015 at 5.4 percent for men and 3.7 percent for women.
One good way to kick off 2022 and protect oneself from health concerns such as obesity is to maintain – or start – a healthy lifestyle and observe proper weight management. OMRON Healthcare, a global leader in the field of clinically proven, innovative medical equipment, is launching a new line of body composition monitors and digital weight scale devices to help Filipinos keep track of their overall weight and health, especially after the holiday season.
Better health with smarter health control
Body weight is not the only yardstick for a healthy body. Body mass index, body fat percentage and muscle mass percentage are also equally important to ensure one is healthy and fit.
OMRON’s New Body Composition Monitors HBF-255T and HBF-702T and Digital Weight Scale HN-300T2 make it easier than ever to keep track of these numbers for a healthier lifestyle. These new devices are designed to complement diets and exercise regimens, providing a range of indicators such as resting metabolism, body fat percentage, visceral fat level and body age for more effective weight management.
The new body composition monitors — the HBF-702T and HBF-255T — are smart-sensing devices designed to provide a more comprehensive view of the user’s health. The HBF-702T features Full Body Sensing Technology to provide better understanding of the user’s body composition using an auto-recognition feature. Users can get accurate and reliable measurements within 11 seconds of stepping on the device. The HBF-255T can help anyone stay inspired to get in shape. Its Previous Value Display feature aids with weight progress tracking and Weight Subtraction Function, which also makes weighing of babies and children more convenient.
OMRON’s Digital Weight Scale HN-300T2 not only keeps track of the user’s weight but also monitors BMI trends and progress in relation to the user’s weight goal. It has a lightweight tempered glass for safety, four sensor accuracy technology and auto on/off. The auto filtering function allows the user to extract and display only a specific weight value from the data transferred by the scale through the OMRON Connect App.
The HBF-702T, HBF-255T and the HN-300T2 are ideal for those with specific weight loss goals and those who are looking to take control of their health. All three devices can conveniently be accessed through the OMRON Connect app, where users can note their personal health history and view progress from their latest activities.
OMRON’s new Body Composition Monitors HBF-255T and HBF 702T and Digital Weight Scale HN-300T2 will be available on OMRON’s official flagship Lazada and Shopee stores. Customers can avail of these health partners for holistic weight management starting February 1st.
