BF-689 Children's Body Fat Monitor


World's first body fat scale for kids

FDA cleared body fat judgment, 5-17 years

Color-coded body fat analysis

Non-slip platform for safety

Automatically recognizes each child


Tanita pioneered body fat analysis in adults over 20 years ago.  Recognizing the alarming increase of childhood obesity (1 out of 3 kids now considered overweight or obese) Tanita developed the same proven, FDA cleared, technology for children.  Body weight and BMI can be very misleading when assessing the health for the majority of children age 5 to 17 years old, and will misclassify children with a large frame and solid build.  Measuring body fat levels is a better method of assessing heath, and the effectiveness of lifestyle choices children and adults make.

The Tanita BF-689 is the ideal tool for parents and children to monitor weight and body fat levels at home.  The LCD display provides weight and body fat percent, and the accompanying color coded body fat judgment indicators discreetly provide health level: blue = underfat, green = healthy, yellow = overfat, red = obese.  And the auto recognition feature for up to 5 children means each child’s data remains private, and cannot be viewed by others.  The Tanita BF-689 provides parents with clinically proven data to reinforce health lifestyle goals for their children.
