User Modes

Tanita currently offers three user modes that account for physiological differences among people (for example, a very athletic adult will have different body characteristics from an average person with a fairly sedentary lifestyle).

To receive the most precise body fat reading, make sure the Body Fat Monitor/Scale that you choose has the right mode for your body type. If you select the wrong mode, it will not affect your BIA impedance reading. Your reading will remain constant, however, it will be applied to the wrong calibration in the product.

Description of Tanita User Modes Make sure the Body Fat Monitor/Scale that you choose has the right mode for your body type.

Adult Mode: For adults aged 18 and older who have moderately active to inactive lifestyles.

Child Mode: For children up to the age of 18, who are over 3-1/2 feet tall (107 cm), who have moderately active to inactive lifestyles, and whose bodies are still developing.

Athlete Mode: Special calibration for very fit adults.

Tanita's "athlete" is someone who gets about 10 hours a week of intense physical activity (this can be exercise, work or leisure related.) "Athletes" also have a resting heart rate of about 60 beats per minute or less. This mode includes people who have been very fit for years but currently exercise less than 10 hours per week. It does not include "enthusiastic beginners" who recently started making a real commitment to exercising at least 10 hours per week but whose bodies have not yet changed to qualify for the Athlete mode.

Not intendedfor professional athletes or bodybuilders.
