Android ANT+ Weight App

Integration with SportTracks gives Tanita owners more options

Five years ago Garmin started to promote a new dimension in health and fitness monitoring by adding support for ANT+ composition monitors like Tanita BC-1000. The first watches to add support for it were the FR60 and Forerunner 310XT; but soon more devices followed like Forerunner 70/210/610/910XT or Edge 800/810. However, from one day to the next, Garmin killed off support for them in new devices going forward, leaving many owners with nothing more than an expensive paperweight.

Now Android users have an alternative with the ANT+ Weight Scale Display app. The app is capable of reading the body composition metrics that are transmitted wirelessly from ANT scales.

It works both with built-in ANT+ chip devices and using ANT+ USB sticks, offers you a quick and easy way to download all your health data stored in Garmin Connect, and now it integrates with the health measurements data in SportTracks.


About the app

Depending on the model of your weight scale you can get all or some of these metrics:

  • Weight
  • Body Fat %
  • Body Water %
  • Muscle Mass
  • Physique Rating
  • Basal Metabolic Rate
  • Active Metabolic Rate
  • Metabolic Age
  • Bone Mass
  • Visceral Fat

The app is multi-user and it is a much more convenient way to track the whole family’s health. Just select who is being measured and the app will keep a separate history log for them.

You can also examine your evolution with different graphs offered by the app. Sync to SportTracks is as easy as a few clicks.

Any possibilities to have the same for iPhone? Thanks in advance,

Or a similar integration to GC as you have with Withings?

Will Tanita scales sync with Sporttracks.mobi (web version)?
