INTRODUCTION
Thank you for selecting a Tanita Body Composition Monitor. This monitor is one in a wide range of
home healthcare products produced by Tanita.
This Instruction Manual will guide you through the setup procedures and outline the button features.
Additional information on healthy living can be found on our website www.tanita.com.
Tanita products incorporate the latest clinical research and technological innovations.
All data is monitored by our Tanita Medical Advisory Board to ensure accuracy.
The TANITA Body Composition Analyzer is indicated for use in the measurement of weight and
impedance, and the estimation of body mass index (BMI), total body fat percent, total body water
percent and weight, muscle mass (skeletal and smooth), bone mass, visceral fat rating with healthy
range, Daily Calorie Intake (DCI), metabolic age, using B IA (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis).
The device is indicated for use for healthy children 7-17 years old and healthy adults with active, moderately active, to inactive
lifestyles.
Note: Read this Instruction Manual carefully and keep it handy for future reference.
Safety Precautions
Note that people with an electronic medical implant, such as a pacemaker, should not use a Body Composition Monitor as it passes a
low-level electrical signal through the body, which may interfere with its operation.
Pregnant women should use the weight function only. All other function are not intended for pregnant women.
Do not place this monitor on slippery surfaces such as a wet floor.
Please do not use scale immediately after bathing or strenuous exercise. Scale platform will be slippery when wet. Please wipe
platform with clean, dry cloth to remove any liquids.
Important Notes for Users
This Body composition monitor is intended for adults and children (ages 7-17) standard and athletic body types.
Thanks to major investment in the latest BIA Technology and sports science research, TANITA has upgraded the
Athlete Mode function, making the measurements more accurate and suitable for a wider audience.
Who should use Athlete Mode?
Adults from the age of 18 years who either:
•Train or exercise for 12 hours or more a week and have been doing so for at least six months.
•Are body builders
•Are professional athletes who want to monitor their progress at home
•People who have a lifetime history of fitness – who used to do more than 12 hours a week – but do less now.
Recorded data may be lost if the unit is used incorrectly or is exposed to electrical power surges. Tanita takes no responsibility for any
kind of loss caused by the loss of recorded data.
Tanita takes no responsibility for any kind of damage or loss caused by these units, or any kind of claim made by a third person.
Note: Body fat percentage estimates will vary with the amount of water in the body, and can be affected by dehydration or overhydration due to such factors as alcohol consumption, menstruation, illness, intense exercise, etc.

PREPARATIONS BEFORE USE
Inserting the Batteries
Open as
shown.
Turn the scale over and remove the battery cover by releasing the latch, insert 4 x AA batteries
(included) with the correct polarity as indicated.
Direction of
the batteries.
Note: Be sure that the polarity of the batteries is set properly. If the batteries are incorrectly
positioned the fluid may leak and damage floors. If you do not intend to use this unit
for a long period of time, it is advisable to remove the batteries before storage.
Please note that the included batteries from the factory may have decreased energy levels over
time.
Positioning the Monitor
Place the measuring platform on a hard, flat surface where there is minimal vibration to ensure
safe and accurate measurement.
Note: To avoid possible injury, do not step on the edge of the platform.
Handling Tips
This monitor is a precision instrument utilizing state-of-the-art technology.
To keep the unit in the best condition, please follow these instructions carefully:
•Do not attempt to disassemble the measuring platform.
•Store the unit horizontally, and place it so that the buttons will not be pressed accidentally.
•Avoid excessive impact or vibration to the unit.
•Place the unit in an area free from direct sunlight, heating equipment, high humidity, or extreme temperature change.
•Never submerge in water. Use alcohol to clean the electrodes and glass cleaner (applied to a cloth first) to keep them shiny; avoid
using soaps.
•Do not step on the platform with wet feet.
•Do not drop any objects onto the platform.
GETTING ACCURATE READINGS
To ensure accuracy, readings should be taken without clothing and under consistent conditions of hydration. If you do not undress,
always remove your socks or stockings, and be sure the soles of your feet are clean before stepping onto the measuring platform.
Be sure your heels are correctly aligned with the electrodes on the measuring platform. Don’t worry if your feet appear too large for the
unit, accurate readings can still be obtained if your toes overhang the platform. It is best to take readings at the same time of day. Try
to wait about three hours after rising, eating, or exercising before taking measurements. While readings taken under other conditions
may not have the same absolute values, they are accurate for determining the percentage of change as long as the readings are taken
in a consistent manner. To monitor progress, compare weight and body fat percentage taken under the same conditions over a period
of time.
Note: An accurate reading will not be possible if the soles of your feet are not clean, or if your knees are bent or you are in a sitting
position.
AUTOMATIC SHUT-DOWN FUNCTION
The automatic shut-down function shuts off the power automatically in the following cases:
•If you interrupt the measurement process. The power will shut down automatically within 20 to 70 seconds, depending upon the
type of operation.
•If an extreme weight is applied to the platform.
•During programming, if you do not touch any of the buttons within 60 seconds.*
•After you have completed the measuring process.
*Note: If the power shuts off automatically, repeat the steps from “Setting and Storing Personal Data in Memory” (p.4).

USING THE VISCERAL FAT BUTTON
Using
enables you to see your visceral fat rating whenever your readings
are displayed.
while your
After the measurement, step off the platform and press
readings are displayed.
VISCERAL FAT RATING
This feature indicates the rating of visceral fat in your body.
Visceral fat is the fat that is in the internal abdominal cavity, surrounding the vital organs in the trunk (abdominal) area. Research
shows that even if your weight and body fat remains constant, as you get older the distribution of fat changes and is more likely to
shift to the trunk area especially post menopause. Ensuring you, have healthy levels of visceral fat may reduce the risk of certain
diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and the onset of type 2 diabetes.
The Tanita Body Composition Monitor will provide you with a visceral fat rating from 1 – 59.
Rating from 1 – 12
Indicates you have a healthy level of visceral fat. Continue monitoring your rating to ensure that it stays within the healthy range.
Rating from 13 – 59
Indicates you have an excess level of visceral fat. Consider making changes in your lifestyle possibly through diet changes or
increasing exercise.
Source: Data from Columbia University (New York) & Tanita Institute (Tokyo)
Note:
•Even if you have a low body fat rate, you may have a high visceral fat level.
•For medical diagnosis, consult a physician.
VISCERAL FAT TREND
The arrow (→) indicates if your visceral fat level is on the increase or decrease.
The trend indication is displayed only when you take measurements at least 5 times in 2 weeks. Please be sure to take measurement
