    If you are inputting the same information they should be the same - may be down to 'rounding' errors I guess. Some may have rounded decimals up and others down. Are they very different?

    Some build in your gender (and possibly also age) while others do it just on height and weight - so this may account for the difference

    The age and gender is probably quite important as it will have some bearing on weight of bones.
