"On the mobile it should look like the last picture from the App Info..." Where do I enter this page in the mobil app...? I have a Fenix 3 and it connects fine with the BC1000 and loads an activity file. But I dont know I enter the Connect IQ data sheet?

There is a bug with GCM, currently only GCM v3.22.2 works.

Hallo, danke für die Möglichkeit meine Tanita weiter zu benutzen. Eine Frage: wo genau kann ich bei meinem Edge 1030 die Benutzer ID einstellen? Die „Striche“ rechts unten sind (wenn ich auf den Touchscreen drücke) leider ohne Funktion. Ich habe noch keine Möglichkeit gefunden die App-Einstellung zu verändern. Vg...

Thank you so much for the app - my 910 has stopped transferring since mid-November - so have installed on 935 and works near perfectly. However, I notice it saves as an activity rather than populating health data. Is there a workaround to save it as health data rather than an activity (appreciating this might not be possible via the app).

Developer Reply

Sorry, Garmin API does not allow to populate heath data directly, there is a workaround, please read the App description and my support thread carefully. Thanks

Hi, On my 920xt I get only my weight number. There is a field for a fat, but the value is never filled.

Developer Reply
December 27, 2017, sscale20

If you don't see body fat reading than you properly have not set the user ID in the app settings to a value between 1 and 254

December 25, 2017 | Version 2.1.10-upd

Only shows weight on Fenix 5. No body fat and doesn't show weight in garmin app, weighing is shown as activity.

Al igual que FURGEN solo muestra peso en Vivoactive.

There is a bug with the latest Garmin Connect Mobile version, which does not display health data, you should complain at Garrmin Support. If you don't see body fat reading than you properly have not set the user ID in the app settings to a value between 1 and 254. Yes, the data currently can only transferred within an activity record.

October 18, 2017 | Version 2.1.8-upd

Con vivoactive se muestra el peso en la pantalla. Pero luego no guarda nada. Y se sube una actividad de ejercicio a garmin Connect pero con todo los resultados a 0 .... solo sirve para verlo en pantalla en el momento

Hi, with Fenix3 can I now view the % of fat, nice! On mobile device I view just the activity but no value... What kind of log mode do you advise: log app trace or log fit csv? thanks

Developer Reply
September 10, 2017, sscale20

On the mobile it should look like the last picture from the App Info, do you see this? The log mode has nothing to do with this, is is primary for debugging or generating a text file which can be converted to a fit file for uploading to GC. For more info see the support forum.

August 21, 2017 | Version 2.1.8-upd

Is it possible that a scale reading (weight) can then update the user profile settings? This would be handy instead of having to manually update in the settings.

Developer Reply
August 25, 2017, sscale20

Sorry, connect IQ API does not allow setting of user profile parameters.

If you do not want to sync with Garmin Connect and Strava, do not press the Back button at the end of the measurement.

The Tanita bc1000 is perfectly recognized by the 910XT. With fenix 5s weighing is displayed as an activity and is reported on Strava as a cycling with all 0 parameters.

Sorry, this is a limitation in the GARMIN programming environment and not a fault of the App. This is the only App for newer Garmin Watches which is able interact with BC-1000.

La Tanita bc1000 viene perfettamente riconosciuta dal 910XT. Con il fenix 5s la pesatura viene visualizzata come un'attività e viene riportata su Strava come ciclismo con tutti i parametri a 0.

May 2, 2017 | Version 2.1.7

Thanks, I've been waiting for this for a long time. If the data would automatically be uploaded as weight info vs activity it would be perfect. I do realize this is probably due to restrictions by Garmin not by developer. Works fantasticly all data fields appear and are readable. Two thumbs up!

I have a Garmin forerunner 630 and while it activates the BC-1000 like clockwork, the only information that I get is my weight. The mouth watering information like body water %, visceral fat, muscle mass, etc is nowhere to be found. The only good news is that the installation process was simple.

Hi, hopefully you have followed the instructions in the App description, too repeat, you have to set a userid of 1 in the App-Settings (with Garmin Express), The data should then appear as an Activity "Tanita" in Garmin Connect Mobile (Tablet, Mobil Phone). Please use my support forum to report problems. Thanks

April 9, 2017 | Version 2.0.3

Works fine on fenix3

January 18, 2017 | Version 1.1c

Exactly the app I've been looking for... However, my Fenix 3 HR ends up searching endlessly and does not find the scale. Some troubleshooting information would be highly appreciated.

Developer Reply
January 20, 2017, sscale20

Hello, i am sorry about your troubles with the app. There may be other devices interfering with the scale. Is there another device connecting to the scale or do you have more than on scale? It may help to remove/insert the battery from the scale (or check if the batteries are good). Or place the scale to a different place. If that does not work i can help you to get the logfile from the watch if you don't know how to do. You may also have read the limitation which apply to the app. Regards Josef

Fantastic, I've been waiting for this for ages! works perfectly on Fenix 3 HR I would love to see some additional fields or perhaps charts for weight and % fat.

December 29, 2016 | Version 1.1b

Tolle und einfache Funktion. Eine echte Innovation in dem Bereich. Ein Wunsch von mir wäre noch die anderen Daten mit auswerten zu können. Danke für die APP.

This is absolutely perfect. Love it, needed it. Would like to see a weight chart widget; else, this is just perfect.
