Samsung Health App has an excellent opportunit to estabish an accurate measure of weight health and abandon the BMI standard. I am a very fit 6' 2" 217lb 53 yo male and the BMI index lists me as overweight. I have abs that show which indicates I have between 12% and 15% body fat. I get so upset when I see "overweight." I also have a 32" - 34" waist.
BMI is very psychlogically damaging to healthy people who are likely to use the Health App. Samsung has an opportuity to abandon BMI and establish a new more accurate measure of body fat, muscle, and bone composition.
