Tanita Segmental Body Composition Scale BC-545N

Experiences with the FitBit Aria and the Withings WS-50 Smart Body Analyzer showed me that I don't need a scale with
  • Wi-Fi capabilities
  • Air quality measurement
  • iPhone app
  • Web dashboard.
What I really need is a reliable device based on scientific and medical knowledge supporting me in understanding my body composition - this is how I got to the third and final choice, the Tanita BC-545N

You don't have to set it up either via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, because it only stores data in its memory. Thus to make graphs and over-time analysis you'll have to enter data manually either on their site called WeightCheckers or simply into a spreadsheet (this is how I do it). But, in order to understand all the metrics provided by the device you need 1-2 minutes anyway and that's sufficient to do the typing.

With these measurements you can set a correct focus for you (and up to 4 further persons with automatic recognition):
  • Weight
  • Body Fat %
  • Body Fat Healthy Range Indicator
  • Total Body Water %
  • Muscle Mass
  • Physique Rating
  • Bone Mineral Mass
  • Basal Metabolic Rate
  • Metabolic Age
  • Body Mass Index
  • Visceral Fat
  • Visceral Fat Healthy Range Indicator
  • 5 Segmental Fat Readings (trunk, right and left arms and legs)
  • 5 Segmental Muscle Readings (trunk, right and left arms and legs).
I'm satisfied with this product after a few days of usage and can only recommend it.
