SOURCE: does having water effect the

Yes. These systems work by what could be broken down as, "Bio-electrical Impedance Monitoring".
Meaning, they measure the amount of resistance in your body to determine the "volume %" of non-resistive materials (fat and water). Since bones and muscle are very dense in comparison, the scale can calculate the total weight of a person, then determine their "expected BF%). Fat is about 80-90% water depending on your genetic makeup, and it would only make sense that if you where full of fluids (either by ingesting large amounts or by fluid build up under the skin) that your BF% would read higher. My professional suggestion? Use it only after waking and before any morning drink or food.
(REMEMBER...THESE THINGS WILL NEVER BE EXACT!!!) Hydrostatic weighing in the only way to be 99%+ on your BFC (body fat composition)
GOOD LUCK AND PLEASE RATE THIS POST!!
P.S. one way to test this method is to hold something heavy in your hands and watch it consider that weight Lean Muscle Tissue. Then stick your hands in a sink full of still water (moving water posses a small electrical charge that could give a false reading) and watch your BF% increase.

Error code r5 on Tanita BF-350


Just spoke with Tanita Tech support- r5 indicates if the scale is in PC mode (able to receive data from scale). There is a button sequence to toggle between PC mode and stand-alone mode.

1. Press&Hold Zero button, then Press&Hold On/Off.
2. Release.
3. Arrow buttons toggle between PC mode and Stand-Alone, select which mode you would like.
4. Press Set button to select mode.

Hope this helps!

I had to change the batteries and now it only reads in "kg" how do i change that on the model 2204?


Since your problem started with a battery change, I am going to assume that method 1 is most likely going to fix your problem...Good luck!



Method 1
Press the Set and Up Arrow buttons at the same time. Release the buttons, the display will flash. Press the Arrow button to cycle through each weight mode until just the mode that you require is displayed. Then press Set. The display screen will flash to confirm your selection and store in memory.
Note: If weight mode is set to pounds or stone-pounds, the height programming mode will be automatically set to feet and inches. Similarly, if kilograms is selected, height will be automatically set to centimeters.
Method 2
Body Fat Monitor/Scales: BF-542, TBF-551, TBF-521, TBF-531, BF-681, BF-682, BF-679, BF-680, BF-578, all Ironman products, and all InnerScan products.
Select the preferred weight mode by using switch on the back of the measuring platform.
Note: If weight mode is set to pounds or stone-pounds, the height programming mode will be automatically set to feet and inches. Similarly, if kilograms is selected, height will be automatically set to centimeters.

Somehow my tanita ultimate scale has been switched from pounds to stones. How can I get it back to pounds?


Q: Why does "st-lb" or "kg" appear when taking a measurement?
A: The unit's "Weight Mode" has been set to measure your weight in units of stone-pounds (st-lb) or kilograms (kg). Tanita's Body Fat Monitors and the UltimateScales can measure weight in three different modes: lb (pounds), kg (kilograms) or st-lb (British stone-pounds). To change the setting, first find out which model you have (it should be written just above or below the display screen of the unit).
Method 1
Body Fat Monitor/Scales: TBF-611, TBF-612, TBF-621, TBF-622, BF-541, TBF-560, TBF-572. UltimateScales: 2000, 2001, 2001T. BF-662, BF-555, BF-556, BF-558, BF-559, BF-625, BF-626.
Press the Set and Up Arrow buttons at the same time. Release the buttons, the display will flash. Press the Arrow button to cycle through each weight mode until just the mode that you require is displayed. Then press Set. The display screen will flash to confirm your selection and store in memory.
Note: If weight mode is set to pounds or stone-pounds, the height programming mode will be automatically set to feet and inches. Similarly, if kilograms is selected, height will be automatically set to centimeters.
Method 2
Body Fat Monitor/Scales: BF-542, TBF-551, TBF-521, TBF-531, BF-681, BF-682, BF-679, BF-680, BF-578, all Ironman products, and all InnerScan products.
Select the preferred weight mode by using switch on the back of the measuring platform.
Note: If weight mode is set to pounds or stone-pounds, the height programming mode will be automatically set to feet and inches. Similarly, if kilograms is selected, height will be automatically set to centimeters.
