Tanita has discontinued the Tanita 1210-50, 1210-100, 1212, 1220, 1471, 1475G, 1475Z, 1477, and 7020 mini scales.
Tanita has priced them out of the market basically in our opinion by stubbing their nose at the most important customer -YOU. Any economics course teaches the marketplace dictates price, but Tanita Corporation thinks otherwise. Typical companies are responsive to competition, but again Tanita Corporation thinks otherwise.
China and Taiwan have entered the market for pocket scales and the market price for a mini pocket scale is now $25 to a maximum of $70 depending on the model and features. Tanita basically feels they build the best mini scale and people will pay a exorbitant premium for their scales.
In our opinion, Tanita is fooling themselves since the Asia markets are building excellent quality scales and they are much more stylish and functional than the Tanita line. Case in point is the MyWeigh Palm 5.0 or 6.0.
Five years ago Tanita was the only name in pocket scales and you would pay $90 to $200 for their pocket scales. Today the consumer has dictated the market and we have seen an avalanche and plummet for the demand of Tanita mini scales. MyWeigh, Toyo, Ohaus and Acculab are the brands we hear people requesting.
We now only offer the Tanita® 1479V, 1479S, 1481 and KP102 which are all made in Japan and we are selling them at ridiculously low prices compared to what we had to pay Tanita for these scales.
The information below is for reference only to assist people researching an old Tanita model they might have. If you need parts or manuals on the discontinued model please call Tanita directly at 847-640-9241 but be ready for sticker shock since Tanita does not sell anything cheap.
