Background and Objective: With the advancement of human society and lifestyle changes, has expanded rapidly metabolic diseases and obesity among human populations. Also, researchers want to find new indicators are available to them through to obtain comprehensive information about the fitness and health status. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between health and anthropometric indices with handgrip strength, physiological indices and the 2D:4D ratio in children 8 to 15 years.

Materials and Methods: 362 boys with an average age of 11.78 ± 2.32 years, height 151.39 ± 15.79 cm and weight 38.06 ± 10.87 kg participated in this study. After completing the consent by their parents, anthropometric indices (weight, height, sitting height, elbow width, knee width, leg length, arm circumference and calf circumference), second finger (index finger) and fourth finger (ring finger), health indices (BMI, WHR, fat percentage) and physiological (strength, speed, endurance and flexibility) were measured.

Results: The results show that the 2D:4D ratio and handgrip strength is a significant relationship with health indices and anthropometric indices except weight and sitting height (P ≤ 0.05). Also, according to the results, between other physiological indicators with health and anthropometric indices except sit-ups and running 20 meters with BMI, were significant correlations (P ≤ 0.05).

Conclusion: According to the results, can be probably used some indicators in this study to examine children's physical health and fitness level.
