The Skulpt app does allow you to share information to your social media profiles, such as Facebook.
The Aim also allows for real-real social sharing, by allowing you to create five different profiles within your app, as well as a “guest” profile for any user who does not want to store their data long-term. This makes it useful for personal trainers who work with multiple clients.
The battery on the Aim can last for a couple of days, but it does not charge quickly. When the battery is low, expect to leave it charging in the dock for up to 10 hours to bring it back to full.
The Skulpt Aim is a fitness tracker for workout enthusiasts, bodybuilders, and personal trainers. It measures both body fat and muscle quality (MQ) in 12 areas, allowing you to track how well you are burning fat and building muscle over time. These locations are:
- Upper back
- Lower back
The Skulpt Aim uses a process called electrical impedance myography (EIM) to send a small current through your body (you cannot feel this when you use it). By measuring how this current flows through your tissue, the Aim gives you a reading of your body fat and muscle.
EIM is a more accurate way to measure body fat and muscle than both smart scales and skinfold calipers, though it is less accurate than a DEXA scan. But the readings the Aim takes are generally consistent with each other, allowing you to track changes over time.
If you are casual about your exercise, the Skulpt Aim is not the fitness tracker for you. But for anyone enthusiastic about building muscle over time, the Skulpt Aim is unique and useful fitness tracker. It would also be helpful for personal trainers or coaches who want to help clients track their progress and show them the results they are working toward.
The Quick Start guide that comes with the Aim makes setting it up relatively easy, and though the app is slow, the software is relatively easy to use once you have spent some time exploring its different functions and screens.
The scanner itself can be a little difficult to use, sometimes requiring two or three tries to get a reading on a muscle group. If your placement varies slightly from day to day, you won’t get a consistent reading of progress over time. The sensors also have trouble taking readings through body hair.
If you are having trouble getting a reading, re-wet the sensors using the spray bottle, then use the app’s instructions to guide where you place the scanner. The best way to get an accurate picture of your MQ is to take multiple readings for each muscle group and average the results.
