We have shipped out the vast majority of all pre-orders, and are grateful for the overwhelmingly positive response from our supporters. While there were definite challenges in bringing this product to the market, it’s extremely rewarding to introduce a brand new technology, and a “game-changer “ to the fitness space.
Being such a new device, we get a lot of questions about using the Skulpt Aim. As a lot of you have started to receive your Aims, we emphasize getting to know your Aim, and “playing” with it before your start your hardcore tracking. Here are some tips to be an Aim pro:
Take multiple measurements on the same muscle.
We have videos to show you the correct placement of the Aim on your muscle, but nobody knows your body better than you. So take some time to find the “sweet spot” of each muscle. It’ll be right over the belly of the muscle, and tends to give the highest value of MQ.
Make good contact with your skin.
This includes wetting the sensors with water before each measurement, and pressing firmly against your skin. The water helps to make a good connection, and you can also try to spray directly on the skin instead of the sensors!
Pro Tip: You can bring Aim into your morning shower, without having to spray the sensors.
Delete unwanted measurements.
When you’re experimenting with your Aim, you may get a couple of wonky measurements that you don’t want to get in the way of your progress scores.
No worries. Here’s how to delete them:
- Tap the “Your Body” box on the app where you can see a breakdown of each muscle;
- Tap the specific muscle on which you want to delete a measurement;
- Tap the “Snapshot” dial, and swipe away the bad readings.
Once people get a good feel of their Aim, we find that the variability is pretty low. In fat %, it’s usually within 1% for each muscle and even lower when looking at Total Body scores. With regards to MQ, we recommend taking your measurements first thing in the morning, at a consistent time of day, so your results aren’t affected by exercise or various other changes throughout the day.
