Wireless Body Composition Monitor

By Skip

This has to be one of the coolest things I have seen.  Step on this scale and it will immediately send your detailed results to your computer for uploading into your fitness software and web based monitoring solutions.  Here is the description….

Tanita brings the most sophisticated health monitoring technology to health and fitness enthusiasts everywhere. The BC-1000 Body Composition Monitor offers consumers the ability to wirelessly link data to remote displays, such as a personal computer. Tanita has partnered with Garmin Ltd., the global leader in satellite navigation, to bring consumers the ability to securely and wirelessly transmit data to Garmin’s FR60, FR60LTD and Forerunner 310XT Fitness Watches.

In addition to weight, body fat percentage, and hydration levels, the BC-1000 Body Composition Monitor provides measurements on muscle mass, overall physique rating, daily caloric intake, metabolic age rating, bone mass, and visceral fat. The BC-1000 will communicate with your computer and Tanita’s new HealthyEdgeTM Software to wirelessly transmit these nine readings within seconds after stepping on the platform.

When using the Garmin FR60 or Forerunner 310XT Fitness Watches and their wireless technology, the readings of weight, body fat and body water are wirelessly displayed on the watch, while all nine readings are stored in the watch. When in range of a consumer’s computer, the information is automatically transmitted to the computer using the wireless USB Stick and captured with Tanita’s HealthyEdge Software.

The wireless interface protocol enables ultra low power applications ideal for fitness and health monitors and offers all the benefits of digital wireless communications with much lower power consumption than other wireless protocols.

The BC-1000 scale platform features no visible display, as readings are automatically transmitted to remote displays such as the Garmin FR60 fitness watch, a personal computer, or Tanita’s remote display for easy viewing in various locations. This dynamic feature-the first of its kind-will allow for private readings and is perfect for anyone who wants to keep their health and fitness levels private, making the BC-1000 the ultimate choice for discretion.

The Tanita BC-1000 Body Composition monitor will have four bundled options:
Package 1: BC-1000 platform, Healthy Edge software and USB ANT™ stick.
Package 2: BC-1000 platform, FR60(black), Healthy Edge software and/or Garmin Connect and USB ANT™ stick.
Package 3: BC-1000 platform, FR60(choice of color/style), Heart rate strap, Healthy Edge software and/or Garmin Connect and USB ANT™ stick.
Package 4: BC-1000 platform and Tanita Remote Display.

All bundles come with a license key for downloading Tanita’s HealthyEdge software.

At a whopping $280, it better tell me what I want it to or else!  For more information, CLICK HERE

About

So if you have read any of the blog thus far you know a little bit about me… I can not be told what to do and I push myself about as far as I can be pushed!

But how did I get here and why? Well, that is what this page is about.

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
