Features Tanita UM-076 scales, ideal home healthcare product
This new model is prepared to monitor multiple components of overall health, including weight, body fat %, body water %, muscle mass, visceral fat rating and basic metabolic rate.
Forget about your weight in kg and learn to understand how your body works when training and enjoying a healthy diet, using scales that give you information about fat, muscle and hydration.
How does it work?
A low, safe signal is sent through the body via metal footpads on the scale platform. Based on the principle that muscle tissue contains high levels of water, and therefore acts as a conductor for the signal. Fat contains little water and acts as a resistor to the flow of the signal. This resistance or ‘impedance’ is set against gender / height / age and is used to calculate personalised body fat and composition readings. The quality of the equations used to calculate personalised body fat / composition readings depends on how many people have participated in previous studies.Therefore Tanita has done medical research and studies in which more than 100,000 people of different size, age, gender and body composition from all over the world have participated.And that's also the reason why This is why Tanita earns excellent marks for accuracy.
The You Are What You Eat body composition monitor uses the latest Tanita Bio-electrical impedance analysis (BIA) technology to provide vital information about your body. This personalised information can be used to accurately track the impact of your diet and fitness programme over time helping you keep focused and motivated in achieving a healthy lifestyle for the whole family.
Body water %
Informs you about even the slightest change of hydration level.Finding the right balance of water intake will ensure your body functions efficiently, will make you feel healthier and more alert and will reduce the risk of serious health problems. Being properly hydrated will also ensure you are performing at your best, allowing you to exercise longer. The new Total Body Water Percentage feature on selected Tanita Body Fat Monitors will help you to remain within the healthy total body water ranges.
Important for people who are on a diet or do a lot of exercise. Muscles play an important role as they act as the body's engine in consuming energy (calories). As you exercise more, your muscle mass increase, which in turn accelerates the rate of energy or calories consumed. Increasing your muscle mass will raise your metabolic rate helping you reduce excess body fat levels and lose weight the healthy way.
Visceral fat rating
Very important, as this is the fat that is in the internal abdominal cavity, surrounding the vital organs in the trunk (abdominal) area. Viscal fat is the most dangerous fat; Tanita is the only brand that takes this into account.
Basal metabolic rate
The Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the number of calories the body needs when at rest. The speed of your metabolism is determined by many factors such as gender, age, muscle mass compared to body fat and the amount of physical activity undertaken on a regular basis.For instance, the more muscle or general activity a person takes the more calories required - a diet and fitness program can be based on this information.
Taking weight measurement only
This means that only the body weight value of the user will appear, not the body fat %.
Besides, Tanita UM-076 monitors give extra information like recommended fat% both for adults and children. The monitor allows you not only to monitor your own body fat %, but your children's body fat % as well, so that you can encourage them to stay within the healthy body fat range as they develop.
Tanita UM-076 also has
8 memories to keep the information previously obtained for the whole family.
Recall function for weight, body fat %, body water % and muscle mass, to obtain the other previous readings.
Guest mode which allows you to program the unit for a one-time use without resetting a personal key.
Child mode, from 5 years.
Extra large screen to make reading of the information easier.
· 37 x 5,5 x 40 cm

For more than 70 years Tanita Corporation (Japan), has been the world leader in precision electronic scales. For the last 40 years Tanita's core business has been the manufacturing of precision scales. Today, Tanita is looking beyond scales to products that enable consumers to monitor their own health. Based on medical evidence linking excess body fat to heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers, Tanita introduced the world's first integrated body composition analyzer/scale to the professional markets in 1992. Using the same technology used in our professional analyzers Tanita developed the world's first scale plus body fat monitor for home use in 1994. Backed by extensive clinical research and an independent medical advisor board, the accuracy, innovation and durability of Tanita scales are trusted worldwide.
Tanita is a pioneer in the development of BIA Technology, an extremely reliable method for body composition analysis. Tanita invented the world?s first stand-on Body Fat Monitor in 1992 and now all Tanita Monitors use Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) to send a low, safe signal through the body. The signal passes freely through blood, water and fluids within muscle tissue, but meets resistance when it comes into contact with body fat.

- Are the scales sutable if you are pregnant?Asked by Lisa from SurreyDo you know the answer? Please let us know!1 Answers
Dear Lisa, Although with respect to your and your baby´s health you can use the scale for the weight function without problems, the results of other measurements will not be accurate due to your body and its structure being different from a ¨normal¨ body. The same thing goes for professional athletes and bodybuilders. Please use these scales only to monitor your weight during pregnancy. Kind regards, Elle Answered by fitnessdigital.com
- Hi Can I please ask up to what metabolic age will this scales read? ThanksAsked by lorna from corkDo you know the answer? Please let us know!2 Answers
Hello, The metabolic age is a reference to analyse the metabolic age of your body. This function calculates the BMR (Basic Metabolic Ind.) and the average age that is normally related to this type of metabolism. Tanita advises it is under your real age, but it is just a reference! For users over 50 it will always give readings for max. 50 years old. Wineke Answered by FitnessDigital.com
Hello, Metabolic age is read from 12 to 50 years old. This function calculates the BMR (Basic Metabolic Ind.) and the average age that is normally related to this type of metabolism If your metabolic age is higher than your real age, it means that you need to improve your basic metabolism, for example by doing more exercise. Doing exercise helps to create healthy muscular tissue, and as a consequence your metabolic age improves. Measurements you can see on the screen go from 12 to 90; if measurement is for instance less than 12, a "12" will be shown on the screen, if it is more than 90, a "90" will be shown.

User reviews about Tanita UM-076 scales
Tell us what you think!
The scale is good in general, easy to use and the users memory is a great feature. We are athletes so the fat % is not accurate but that's fine for the price. The fact that is not suitable for serious athletes is clearly stated so we kind of expected it. But GREAT product overall!
I ordered the Tanita UM-076 scales from fitness digital, having checked several websites. Website was informative and user friendly. The price was competitive. Delivery was prompt. I am very happy with the scales and I will recommend both the scales and fitness digital to me clients.
Very happy with communication and delivery. Fitness Digital was not able to fulfil all the order (2 items) on time and left me know when the items would be available. When I choose to source one item elsewhere it was seamless . I appreciated their honesty. The product itself "does what it says on the tin". It takes reading the instructions to set up and its very straight forward once set up.
Perfect tool to see how your body is changing. Before I only looked at the weight, now i can even see that even if my weight is increasing (which was devastating before) - it is actually muscles. Very nice equipment for home-use. Recommend it and for a reasonable price. Plus quick delivery.
I bought hear scales as I had been weighed on the medical version by tanita and seen the weekly difference in muscle mass, fat etc. I wanted to be able to continue the fat loss journey at home. I had become upset some weeks not seeing the numbers change due to muscle gain. These help massively. They're not the easiest to use and took me a while to set up. It's important to always stand correctly on them to get accurate results and set them on the floor before selecting the memory or guest settings otherwise they seem to add their own weight the minute they're placed on the floor. Other than that they provide accurate results though and were a bargain at the price I paid so I'm happy.
Only just started so still getting used to it, fairly easy to set up. I was hoping to be able to download the data like my previous unit but there appears to be no option. However, for a basic/intermediate user this does the job.
