Surprising to me the first and second gave me reasonably decent estimates. I don't remember if I tried the third.
The first one told me I'm at 20%, the second didn't work and the third told me I'm at 27%. I'm trying to calculate my bf% for RFL and all I have to go on are tape measurements and my Tanita scale. It says 25% in the morning after I pee and in the evening before I go to bed 23%. Which would be a safer number to go with for determining protein intake?

I'm 29, 5'3", 123.8 lbs (yesterday), 27" waist, and unfortunately, don't have any pictures recently to post up to help.

Any idea? Would it be safer to err on the higher side to prevent losing muscle?
