Why You Should Monitor Body Water and Fat Percentage
If you're like most people, you're not drinking enough water. If you wait until you feel thirsty, your body is already suffering from the effects of mild dehydration. You continually lose water during the day through sweat, urine and breathing. The amount varies due to several reasons, including your physical activity level, illness, medications, poor nutrition, or even climatic conditions. Monitoring your body water percentage allows you to quickly compensate if your levels are low, allowing your body to function more efficiently. Having the right amount of water in your body will not only make you feel healthier, but you'll also reduce your risk of developing serious health problems in the longer term.
High body fat levels can reduce your endurance and have been linked to heart disease cancer and diabetes. Tanita's body composition analyzers monitor your body fat and body water levels with Bioelectric Impedance Analysis, or BIA, the same advanced technology used by doctors. Foot pads send a low-level electrical signal. Then BIA measures the resistance to this signal as it travels through the body.
The Tanita BF680W is calibrated for standard adults, children and athletes and stores data for 2 people, measuring body fat in increments of 0.1 percentage points. The scale's large, easy-to-read 2.25-inch, 2-line LCD shows weight and body fat simultaneously, and instantly compares these readings to healthy ranges based on the user's age and gender. Simply supply your gender, age, height and weight into the memory, step on the scale, and the monitor does the rest. The results are analyzed according to each user's information, and the result is the one of the most comprehensive at-home readings you can get at home.
Operating on four AA batteries (included), the Tanita BF680W is intended for use by persons up to 300 pounds and is backed by Tanita's three-year warranty.

Easy to setup, easy to use for two people plus random guests.
The weight is dead accurate even for doing postal packages etc.
Also, looks pretty nice.
It's very durableand all my friends who workout alot use it and are extremely satisfied. The athletic mode is very useful too because it allows for greater accuracy
The weighing scale is extremely accurate, and you should take that measurement in the morning after you've used the bathroom and before you have eaten. The body fat measurement should be taken later in the day, and you shouldn't be full or food or water.
One tip: don't use the athlete setting unless you are an actual athlete, because it'll give you far too flattering a reading. If you are an active person who goes to the gym three times a week and does weight training and cardio, that does not make you an athlete. If you play sports for a few hours five times a week, then you can probably use the athlete setting.
I recommend checking your bodyfat every day at the same time under the same conditions and using your weekly average to track your bodyfat.
Here's what you might want to do: the literature says this works on carpet. Maybe -- if the wind blows in the right direction. But, I have no problems because I took an unused piece of wooden shelving and placed it under the scale so it is on a hard level surface. Between uses, I simply slide it and the scale under the clothes rack in the closet with my foot. Works great!
