“ARE YOU AS FAT AS YOU THINK”

published 30/05/2001

A DIGITAL, NO-NONSENSE WEIGH IN

IT'S FAR TOO ACCURATE FOR MY LIKING

We had debated for a long time before we bought these scales as to whether or not it was going to be worth it. At a couple of pennies short of £50, it did seem a lot to pay out when you can buy scales in Argos for a tenner. However, we thought ‘what the heck’ and bought the scales...

Why are so many of us so obsessed about jumping onto the bathroom scales every few days? Well for me I really need to lose weight for health reasons so I need to monitor both my eating habits and weight on a regular basis. I have tried various ways of standing on the scales to make me seem to...

Those toes, those sweaty toes!

Back in the olden days, people would look at their reflection in a pond or, if they were feeling brave, a mirror to gauge how their body was looking. Years later we had personal bathroom scales, and even more years later the in thing became calculating your BMI (Body Mass Index). I’ve done all...

“NO MORE BATHROOM ANTICS”

Accurate Weight and Body Fat readings

none at all

How many of us don't believe what the bathroom scales tell us? You may step onto them gingerly or jump onto them quickly to take them by surprise.Or heaven forbid stand on one leg. You try various methods until you find a reading more to your liking. With the Tanita Body Fat Monitor one cannot...

I first stepped on a Body Fat Monitor for fun when I saw them in a shop, the reading gave me a shock that changed my life. The reason I got a shock is that I was 1% body fat away from obese even although I looked only a bit plump (eeeekk). I realized that without that 'fun' reading I could have...

“State of the Art Scales”

published 09/01/2001

Very accurate readings for most people

Bit expensive

This is the time of year when many of us will be jumping onto our bathroom scales to check just how much weight we have put on over Christmas and jumping off again in shock! But according to the manufacturers of the Tanita Body Fat Monitor, how much we weigh is not the whole story. Someone may...

Accurate Weight Measurement

Not Quite as Accurate on BMI

The most impressive and bullet proof feature is the measurement of weight which is very accurate. You have four programmable buttons (for four different people) plus a weight only button. You programme in your height, sex, child/adult and whether or not you qualify as an athlete (resting pulse...

“It measures up really well”

published 16/08/2001

For some odd reason we’ve always had weighing scales that never work, when I say never work what I mean is that they tell you the wrong amount either a couple of months to much or to less. So, when my Mum suggested we get the Tanita Body Fat Monitor I was all for it. Now weighing is so...

“Don't waste your money”

published 02/03/2007

Easy to use, digital

Overpriced, gimmicky and poorly maufactured

Firstly, I'd agree with a previous reviewer who says it's gimmicky. More importantly, though, I was very disappointed with the quality. Three of my buttons are broken and I've only used it a handful of times over the year or so that I've had it. (I've still got the original batteries in so that...
