Question about Scales & Body Fat Analyzers
My taylor digital body fat monitor is out of calibration. how do I reset? I have changed the battery and it is till out of whack. There is no model number listed anywhere on it.
SOURCE: digital scale question
Digital scales purport to measure your body fat through a process called BIA, or bioelectrical impedance analysis. Essentially, it clocks the speed that electricity travels through you. The scale runs a low-level electric current through your body, using your feet as positive and negative electrodes. The current encounters different levels of impedance, or resistance, from fat versus muscle. The scale measures this impedance, and throws it together with other factors (age, sex, height) to come up with your BMI, or body mass index.

If you go to the taylor websupport site you should find one there, check the model numer though as I dont see a 5552 there. Once you select the product and go to the product page, you will see a link to the manual for the scale on that page.

From the Taylor web site
The easiest way to program the scales is to pull the manual up for the scale and follow the directions. The procedure does vary according to the scale.
In general the procedure is to tap the power or set button until it brings up the height and then hit the arrow keys until you get to the correct height. Hit the power or set after each entry usually height, age, gender, athlete mode. It will then beep and you will need to hit the arrow up until you see 1 (this is the memory number) tap the set or power and it will beep again. The scale is now programmed.
The general recall procedure is to hold the power or set button down for 2 seconds (or tap the up arrow) until the memory number goes up. Then just tap the power or set and it will beep. Then step on the scale to get the information. The weight will be first, then running zeroes, then thefat%, and finally water%.

Testimonial: "The website does not have a manual. Using 'search' or site map produces nothing. Another problem: scale reads only in cm and kg. Won't cycle to ft/lb."

I just pulled my manual, as I recently started a slow carb diet and needed all my measurements. It was fun trying to find it. After finding nothing online (before my search), decided to post mine for everyone out there. It can be found under my photobucket album. Here is the link:
