Can't set user age correctly
24 July 2017
I have not been able to get beyond setting a user, as it won't set my age correctly. It won't allow me to select my year of birth as it seems only to go back to 1948, and even then gives the wrong age for someone born in that year. I am 70 this year. It says the age range is 5 - 99! It makes me wonder if the product is really technically on spec. I am totally mystified and disappointed with a product I chose because of a good review by the Independent newspaper.
Added later: It still mystifies me. Putting in year 1988 gives the curious result of 59! So I counted backwards to 1978 and got my age, 69! Perhaps I am going bonkers with age. My daughter put in her date of birth and got the correct age. It is all very odd. I have asked Tanita to explain it to me. I will post their response if I get it. If I get an good explanation I will happily revise my score.
Update: With a fantastic and rapid response from Tanica help team this problem has been resolved easily.
