Tanita BC-545 Segmental Body Composition Monitor, Blue

Product information

The BC-545 uses advanced Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) to analyse body composition, calculating your body fat, muscle mass, hydration level, metabolic rate, visceral fat and bone mass. With this information easily at hand, you can fine-tune your diet and fitness programme to ensure optimum results and help prevent injury.
This ingenious device is so technically advanced; it uses segmental BIA analysis to provide an in-depth breakdown of each body segment - namely your arms, legs and abdominal area - allowing you to specifically track changes to your body fat and muscle mass in targeted areas as your training programme progresses.
Segmental readings are also particularly important when recovering from injury. By tracking muscle build and balance you have access to vital information that can help you to monitor your progress during the rehabilitation process and speed up your return to peak fitness.
The BC-545 will also help you to monitor your body composition and maintain your fat and muscle percentages at a level that ensures optimum performance. Giving you a baseline to work from, you can regularly assess the effects of your training regime. Whilst your overall weight may not alter, you may start to see changes to your muscle mass and body fat percentage that will give you the motivation to keep on challenging yourself and upping your game.

Q & As

Rated 1 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Completely useless Inconsistent results every time. I tried these scales as soon as I got them as I wanted to see how bad the damage was. I tried them in the afternoon (the damage was pretty bad). I then thought I'd try them again this morning (as I intended to carry on using them in the morning only). However, between last night and this morning, I've managed to lose over 7% body fat. Irrespective of the time of day it is, surely the body fat reading should be more or less the same? I can appreciate weight and/or water retention being different at different times of day but if the scales are accurate, the body fat percentage should not vary to this extent. The readings do not just differ between evening and morning they also differ within seconds of re-trying. This morning when I tried them again, my weight was incorrect (I have another set of standard scales that I was hoping to replace) so I stood on them again... and again and again and again and again. Every time I stood on them, I got a different reading, which is bad enough with body fat but they can't even do the job of simple scales. I spent half an hour on them this morning getting readings which differed by up to 2kg and up to 2% body fat. I decided to take an average of the total for my records. I am so disappointed with this product. I train quite a lot so wanted to gauge my weight loss by body fat percentage and not weight. Accuracy is therefore key. I will be returning this item for a full refund immediately. 07 June 2014
