Beside above, are all Tanita scales made in Japan?
The Tanita HD351 scale is still made in Japan. I inquired with Tanita USA prior to purchasing and was told this particular model is made in Japan. This scale is accurate and has excellent build quality.
Additionally, does Tanita have an app?
Tracking your health and fitness as well as your daily activities has never been more convenient. Using the free Tanita HealthyEdge Mobile app, data from our RD-901plus Body Composition Monitor and our AM-161 Activity Gauge are seamlessly recorded and graphed.
How accurate are digital weight scales?
In general, digital bathroom scales are more accurate than mechanical ones. But for the most accurate reading, any bathroom scale must be set up correctly and used consistently.
Our bathroom scales send a very small electric current through your body. Since fat, muscle and other tissue all conduct electricity at a different rate, the scale can then calculate your body fat percentage.
Tanita headquarter is located in Tokyo, Japan, with world-class manufacturing facilities in Japan and China.
Measuring body fat
Men and women need different amounts of fat. For a man, 2–5% fat is essential, 2–24% fat is considered healthy, and more than 25% classifies as obesity. For a woman, 10–13% fat is essential, 10–31% fat is healthy, and more than 32% classifies as obesity.
DEXA / DXA Scan is widely considered as one of the most accurate and comprehensive body composition tests. The DEXA scan utilizes dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). The test looks beyond your weight and the traditional body mass index (BMI).
