Tanita Body Fat Monitor - Which Is Most Popular?

Tanita body fat monitorJapan's Tanita Corporation, established in the 1940s, is a global leader in precision electronic scales and in instruments for body fat calculations. Considerable detail is at the company's website, including information about the fast-growing line of Tanita body fat scales.

The Tanita body fat scale series is divided into various categories - Ironman monitors, Iron Girl monitors, InnerScan monitors, Fitscan monitors and body fat/body water monitors.

For year the Ironman and InnerScan monitor series have dominated sales, but recently the body fat/body water monitors have come to the fore. And, at the time of writing, the company's most popular monitor was the Tanita BF680W Duo Scale Plus Body Fat Monitor with Athletic Mode and Body Water.

According to a product description:

Tanita BF680W Duo Scale Plus Body Fat Monitor with Athletic Mode can monitor both body fat and body water percentages. This scale also features a daily calorie intake function that estimates how many calories should be consumed in a 24-hour period for a user to maintain current weight level, and a dual recall feature that compares both current weight and body fat readings to the previous readings.

If you're like most people, you're not drinking enough water. If you wait until you feel thirsty, your body is already suffering from the effects of mild dehydration. You continually lose water during the day through sweat, urine and breathing. The amount varies due to several reasons, including your physical activity level, illness, medications, poor nutrition, or even climatic conditions.

Monitoring your body water percentage allows you to quickly compensate if your levels are low, allowing your body to function more efficiently. Having the right amount of water in your body will not only make you feel healthier, but you'll also reduce your risk of developing serious health problems in the longer term.

This Tanita body fat monitor has received more than 75 customer reviews at, with nearly 80% of these four-star or five-star reviews.

Here is a five-star review:

Wonderful Product. Works great and is accurate. Read the directions fully before use, because it works in a very unique way and works in conjunction with a very low current. If you can get one good luck. But I think they make different types if they still don't have this one.

And a one-star review:

Scale records my weight two pounds less than my correct weight. I only discovered this from weighing on a professional scale at the gym. I called the company and they said it's a defective scale and I should exchange it through Amazon. In process of doing this. Hope it won't be a headache.
