Tanita (www.thecompetitiveedge.com) just announced the BC-1000, the first consumer body composition monitor to wirelessly transmit data to remote displays, like a personal computer. For the announcement, Tanita has partnered with Garmin Ltd. to bring consumers the ability to securely and wirelessly transmit data to Garmin’s FR60 Fitness Watch.

With no visible display on the monitor, the BC-1000 will communicate with your computer and Tanita’s new HealthyEdgeTM Software via a USB stick to wirelessly transmit nine readings (like body fat, hydration level, bone mass, etc.) within seconds after stepping on the platform. When using the Garmin FR60 Fitness Watch and its wireless technology, the readings of weight, body fat and body water are wirelessly displayed on the FR60, while all nine readings are stored in the watch. When in range of a consumer’s computer, the information is automatically transmitted to the computer.

Available this summer, BC-1000 will have two bundled options – the BC-1000 Body Composition platform and wireless USB stick bundle for $279.99 – or BC-1000 Body Composition platform, FR60 Fitness Watch and wireless USB Stick for $399.99. Both bundles will be available at www.TheCompetitiveEdge.com and come with a license key for downloading Tanita’s HealthyEdge software.
