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.
