View Full Version : Body Comp Scales.....

08-03-2010, 10:49 AM
I'm looking to buy some body composition scales and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations?

My internet research has led me to the Tanita brand so the obvious choice would be the BC1000. Unfortunately my 405cx isn't supported also its like 230/$360!! =8O I strongly suspect that the BC1000 is loaded with a large premium for the ANT+ functionality. As such does anyone know what the equivalent model is without ANT+? I'm looking at the BC545. Its still expensive at 160/$250 but at the very top end of what I want to spend.

I take it as a given that I'll be able to manually transfer the data from the scales to my Garmin Connect account...should I????

Obviously I'd like to spend less so any recommendations greatly received.

You can only manually enter your weight into your Garmin Connect account. All of the other data has to be uploaded from the BC-1000 through a 310XT or FR60.
