How Naked Works
Naked uses Intel® RealSense™ Technology and a process called stereovision to create your body model.
The sensors use infrared light in a manner similar to an Xbox Kinect or your TV remote control, and the processor in the mirror stitches together your body model before running proprietary algorithms to extract your measurements and calculate body fat percentage.
Naked has developed a proprietary body fat algorithm validated against DXA using a combination of metrics extracted from your scans.
We will continue to refine this algorithm and add more data and metrics to improve body fat % accuracy over time.
Naked has a depth map accuracy of approximately 1/10 of an inch. This translates to +/-15mm accuracy for large circumferences (waist, shoulders, etc.) and +/-5mm for small circumferences (biceps, calves).
The mirror is designed to be connected to a 110v grounded outlet via a 3-prong grounded cable.
The scale is powered by a lithium-ion battery and charged via a USB-C cable that is connected to the base of the mirror.
Traditional bioimpedance scales are typically +/-8% accurate and can be especially susceptible to factors like skin conductivity and hydration.
DEXA, typically considered the gold standard, uses X-Ray to measure body composition with +/- 1% accuracy.
Volumetric methods (like hydrostatic weighing and Bodpod) use displaced water or air to measure your body volume, with approximately +/- 1.5% percent accuracy.
Naked uses a proprietary algorithm that relies on a variety of metrics extracted from your scan to calculate body fat with +/- 2.5% accuracy.
Naked’s turntable can measure weights up to 330 lbs.
The maximum user height is 6 foot 6 inches (198 cm). The minimum user height is 3 feet 3 inches (100 cm).
Yes, each pre-order device can sync with up to six full accounts distributed on up to a maximum of six phones i.e. it’s possible to have one phone with six accounts or up to six phones, each with one account. You are welcome to give a test scan to as many friends as you’d like.
Naked devices purchased once we reach general availability will come with three full accounts and unlimited one-off scans
No, you can wear whatever you are comfortable with, but for best results, we recommend underwear or compression shorts for men. Women can wear underwear or spandex and bra. Whatever is exposed is measured.
In order to capture changes in your body, we recommend getting scanned once a week. That being said, the more that you get scanned, the more insights we can provide you about your body.
Naked is designed for home use, and as such, there is a 6 user limit per pre-ordered device. You can do unlimited one-off scans and export the data, but you will not be able to create more than 6 accounts to track users over time.
