Tanita Scale with Body Fat Monitor

I found a scale with body fat monitor by Tanita, the first company to design and manufacture body fat monitoring scales for in-home use, at Circuit City for $37.99 (they offer free shipping for orders over $24.00). The scale is suppose to measure weight, percentage of body fat and hydration accurately. Some details below...

The Features:
  • Weight
  • Body Fat %
  • Body Water %
  • 2 person memory
  • Weight and body fat % recall
The Specs:
  • Capacity: 330 lb (150 kg)
  • Weight Increments: 0.2 lb (0.1 kg)
  • Body Fat Increments: 0.1 %
  • Body Water Increments: 0.1 %
  • Modes: Adult, Child, Weight Only, Guest
  • Power: 4 x AA batteries (included)

Stay tuned! I'll give you the scoop when I receive the scale and let you know how accurate it is. I've had my body fat measured by the traditional method of a measuring tape and calipers and I have also had my body fat measured by a professional equipment (using bioelectrical impedance) at the gym.
