I have. The Army uses a wrist measurement when doing BMI for females.

IMO calipers or the dunk tank are a give a much more accurate measurement.

We had guys all the time fail the BMI tape test but they weren't even close to being overweight. Then there was the other side, guys that were fat but tested low on the tape test because they had huge fat necks.
