    Hello,

    Thank you for your feedback. Lean mass (defined by the weight of your body minus your body fat) is different from muscle mass. Withings calculates muscle mass (also known as lean soft tissue mass) by subtracting your body fat and bone mass to your total weight. Other indicators can be used for "muscle mass", such as skeletal muscle mass. Lean soft tissue mass and/or skeletal muscle mass are both used to represent muscle mass.

    I was wondering the same thing. Withings even gives different reference values for muscle mass, compared to those that you find on the internet. But they give no explanation of what these alternative values represent. See here for the alternative reference values for muscle mass: https://support.withings.com/hc/en-us/articles/218500778-Body-What-are-the-normal-ranges-for-body-composition-

    Did anyone get a answer to this? Everywhere else they say 30-40 is normal, Withing says 70-80% without any explanation?

    Just got my body+, and it appears this is still the case, is there any fix for this, or should I return it?
