3 August 2018: “Cleaned” up this home-age somewhat today and same on , hoping to improve experience for you on our pages!


11 July 2018:  New ‘support’ (info) page coming soon.


8 June 2018: *New* sensational RD-545 “Champion’s Segmental Supreme” for professional athletes now in stock, with early-adopter back orders away, this first shipment is running out the door beyond our expectation.


1 May 2018: Our all-time top-selling BC-587 “Class-Plus” hit a new sales record in April. Kiwis love the success they get with their health, fitness or weight (fat)-loss with this model. Find out why, get one!





Choose from our stock of current 6 top selling scanning monitors:


2. UM-041 “Basic” Body-fat / Body-water monitor

Colour choice: Black or Red


RRP $82.82


Direct deal: $47.47 Limited time


Click to…


Buy direct


Or, choose retailer


UM-041 is the perfect inexpensive device for beginner interest in body composition assessment.


Or! Small and light, is ideal for throwing into your travel bag to keep a track of yourself while away on work missions or holiday.


Great to start kids with: We have demand for this extreme budget-price model from schools. Used properly with well-considered Physical Education instruction on what the measures mean, the device supports healthy attitudes toward weight and weight loss. A TANITA BIA scan can prove that people can be heavy but healthy in terms of body-fat which the faulty BMI (body mass index) does not do!


The UM-041 “Basic BF/BW” is the basic monitor having the essential original measurement features of Body Fat and Body Water measurements that TANITA Corporation of Japan invented to first launch on the world in 1992!  Yes! Now more than ¼ of a Century of developments exist behind TANITA’s incomparable world-leading health-fitness products of today.


This economical price-point monitor is staggering if you understood the technology that has gone into creating the bioelectric impedance generator (BIA) and the CPU (computer chip) algorithm that matches your personal data to population norms against gold-standard DXA scanner measurements. It is a method highly scientifically supported by Japanese and World research; using advanced human population statistical analysis.


All for less than NZ$100: Amazing!


Choice of two colours: Red or Black - with white web decal.

3. UM-075 “Jenny” with Athlete mode

Basic Body-fat / Body-water monitor

with Athlete mode, Muscle Mass, and Visceral Fat Rating


RRP $89.96


Direct deal: $67.67 Limited time


Click to…


Buy direct


Or, choose retailer


The “075” that we call “Jenny” sometimes rivals the sales popularity of our famous BC-587 “ClassPlus”. This is due to its use in the programmes of numerous well-known weight-loss businesses.


It is priced at incredible economic value for what it offers …beyond compare.


Not only does it offer the essentials of Total Body Water and Body Fat measurement, if you are recreationally physically active or sport inclined, it offers “Athlete Mode” and measurement of your Muscle Mass. 


Additionally your “Jenny” gives you a Visceral Fat rating (belly-fat), a measure which is critical in terms of your health especially as you get older. This is the fat around your internal abdominal organs, assessing in particular your belly-fat. If you measure above a rating of “12” upward to the highest rating of “60” this indicates significantly increased chance of a number of serious health risks such as diabetes, digestive system problems, cardiovascular disease etc. Combined with your Muscle Mass measure which you DO NOT want to see decline as you get older, or at least as slowly as possible (through regular exercise), you want to keep your Visceral Fat Rating at or below 12. 


What is your Visceral Rating? Find out! Get yourself a TANITA monitor TODAY!  Then talk to your doctor, followed by a personal trainer, on what you need to do!   


Your TANITA is so easy to use; my near 90 years mother-n-law uses one!

4. BC-587 “Class Plus” InnerScan Dual


NZ’s #1 seller, 8 years running!


RRP $249.00


This style-king BC-587 “ClassPlus” shot to NZ NUMBER ONE seller status soon after its launch around 2010 and has never looked like giving up its massive popularity. Kiwis just love this monitor and that is exactly what they call to tell us …“I love my TANITA!”


Caveat emptor: Buyer beware!

Designated InnerScan BC, the “587” sports TANITA’s world-wide exclusive dual-frequency scan technology which has afforded it an increased set of motivating health and fitness measures to get you to your goals.  Copycat brands cannot offer you these additional measures without dual frequency and TANITA has the patent on dual frequency! If you find other brands offering these measures they are either breaching patent or they are giving fake measurements! We actually found complete fake scan in a copy-cat brand sold in a chain-store supermarket in NZ 6 years ago! This fake monitor had no bioelectric impedance generator in it at all; it was just a straight out BMI (body mass index) calculator, being a simple weight divided by your height formula. NZ consumers were being totally fooled by this China sourced hack.


Technological advances:

Against the very recently launched sensationally spec’d “RD” models (above), the economically priced BC-587 and the UM models (below) are now older technology and cannot quite match the new sophistication in measurement, which integrates new research, that is found in the RD’s. An extreme analogy would be expecting a brand new but old internal combustion mechanical technology Toyota corolla to perform as well as a $200K Tesla Electric! However, our reliable BC and UM models still do the job that tens of thousands of Kiwis just like you have found to be very effective in realising amazing goals in weight-loss, fitness, or sport achievement.   Our BC’s and UM’s are excellent value for their price and what they can do for you!


Several things that make the BC-587 special are its style, with chrome buttons and large tempered glass platform; 200 kg capacity; Very clear easy-read large blue-back lit display; and 9 measures.



Technical Specifications

Weight capacity: 200kg

Graduation: 0.1kg

Product size (mm): 300mm x 340mm x 43mm

Product weight: 2.7kg

Size of display: 32mm

Power supply: AA x 4

User memories: 4

Guest mode: Any number of people can be tested

Weigh-only mode: Just weigh yourself like an ordinary bathroom scale!

Choice of: Standard (population) measurement mode or Athlete mode (Exercise 10 hours/week; RHR<60)


The BC-587 features a 200kg weight capacity and an extra wide platform.
The BC-587 is easy to use; users can check each body composition reading simply by clicking the corresponding chrome-finish feature buttons. Results are clearly displayed on an extra-large LCD display with bright blue backlight.

6. BC-1000 “Wireless 1000” InnerScan



RRP $349.00


Direct deal: $269.39 Limited time

Price is platform-only with USB ANT+ stick (normally $33) included: Download of “HealthyEdge Lite” software is FREE.


This model has become as much a favourite with health, fitness, or nutritional clinicians who have a small clientele at any one time as it has been a favourite with fitness enthusiasts (It is not a heavy duty use commercial spec’d model!). You can upgrade the HealthyEdge software to Pro version for any number of “customers”! What people like is the very large stable platform area, the largest of all of our scales and monitors, which not only looks professional in an office but affords safety for people who are not so good on their feet.  After 12 years I still use one of these myself in the BM&S TANITA-NZ office for all sorts of things such as a quick personal weigh-only, or weigh a parcel going out, or I put visitors who call for advice on it.
