You can use Body Tracker to calculate and record BMI (body mass index) and BMR (basal metabolic rate).

BMI

Enter height and weight, and Body Tracker will calculate body mass index (BMI). Use the chart to determine if participant is classified as underweight, normal, overweight, or obese. BMI can also be used with body composition to assess lean body weight, or muscle mass. Lean body weight is low if BMI is low and body fat is high. Alternatively, lean body weight is high if BMI is high and body fat is low.

BMR

Enter height, weight, and age, and Body Tracker will calculate basal metabolic rate (BMR) based on the Harris-Benedict equation. BMR is the number of calories the body burns per day at rest. Select an activity level and Body Tracker will estimate caloric needs based on based on activity level.
