4.0 out of 5 stars easy to clean and store, 24 Jan. 2016
High quality, easy to clean and store, nice to the touch. Good that one can replace broken items with singles.
Maybe the plates and pasta bowls are a touch on the large side.

3.0 out of 5 stars No electronic data transfer via SD Card? Amazon Japan selling a newer version with SD card and at a lower price!, 8 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all let me say that this is a good quality set of scales. They're accurate and take some really useful measurements. Body weight, BMI, body fat per cent, total body water per cent, muscle mass, physique rating, bone mass, basal metabolic rate, metabolic age, and visceral fat level. All of these are fantastic to get in one set of scales. They look good too, and are nice and light to carry around.

Now for the reasons why I only gave three stars.

Major quibble. With all those electronic functions packed into the hand unit, why doesn't this product allow electronic data transfer via SD card or even bluetooth? Especially considering the price that I had to pay for them. They're made in Japan by a Japanese company, surely electronic data transfer into excel on a PC should come as standard?

Minor quibble. The translation for the instructions isn't that good. What does 'hidden obese' mean for the upper range of physigue ratings? Why say overfat when you could simply say overweight in plain English?

I took a look at the Amazon Japan website and saw that Tanita do indeed manufacture these scales with SD card and computer/mobile apps. This version is also being sold at about 30 per cent lower cost to the consumer.

Come on Tanita (and Amazon) please stop offloading old stock onto customers at inflated prices and let us have access to the latest products. See here for newer version on Amazon.co.jp site: http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/switch-language/product/B009VTJJ12/ref=dp_change_lang?ie=UTF8&language=en_JP.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not useful and poor service, 18 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Package didn't contain all the items that it was supposed to. Got two lances and no pipette, so I couldn't really use it. When I asked for a replacement I simply got an automated reply and nothing more.

The product itself only measures whether you have abnormally high readings, and does not tell you what you might be allergic to. Not very useful if you suffer allergic symptoms but want to know what it is that is causing those symptoms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction to Yoga, 3 Feb. 2013
This review is from: The Easy Yoga Workbook (Paperback)
I was bought this book a couple of years ago as a present to help get me started with yoga. It has been a revelation. After using the poses in the book about two or three times a week I have become much more supple, slimmer and fitter, and feel much better for it. Thank you.

The book takes one through 20 easy poses and explains how they should be done, and how to do the breathing and meditation that are both an integral part of doing yoga successfully. Anyone can do these poses. Doing them regularly will help you to gradually improve so that you can then start to add newer and more difficult exercises. Also, not being obsessive about it and not pushing oneself too hard will keep you enjoying it and prevent you feeling like it is a chore.

All in all, highly recommended for anyone who has never done yoga before, and/or wants to use yoga for improved fitness.
