I’m in the market for a bathroom scale that gives me more info than just weight. My google searches keep bringing me back to Tanita scales—probably because they apparently are featured on TV shows that showcase weight loss (“The Biggest Loser, etc.)...?
Some of Tanita’s scales return data for body fat, segmented body composition, bone density, etc. and hook up to smartphones via Bluetooth so one can track trends. The commercial/professional scales are thousands of dollars, so that’s out of the question. Their consumer scales are still pretty pricey, but, as I said, they supposedly return all sorts of data that might prove quite motivating and informative.
However, Consumer Reports says consumer-level body fat scales are not at all accurate and just a waste of money.
Does anyone here have any experience with Tanita’s products? Tanita.com
Anyone have alternate recommendations?
