    BIA stands for Bio-Impedance Analysis. This metric is used to calculate bodyfat percentage.

BIA determines the electrical impedance, or the opposition to the flow of an electric current through body tissues, which can then be used to estimate the amount of total body water. This can then be used to estimate the body fat. *less than 1mA
