Buyer beware many claim to be Authorized Tanita® Dealer, but few companies on the internet actually are an Authorized Tanita® Distributor since Tanita Corporation has changed their guidelines for Dealers/Distributors that resulted is many companies getting dropped.  If you don't buy from an Authorized Dealer/Distributor you may be jeopardizing your manufacturer's warranty and product support.  There have been cases of unscrupulous online vendors selling gray market units and we recommend that you call Tanita® to verify who is an authorized and who is not so you don't get possibly ripped off.  Effective February 27, 2006, Tanita® changed their policy and allow pricing online so don't believe any stories that prices can't be displayed online.

Precision Weighing Balances was one of the first companies to market the Tanita® line on the internet.  We are an Authorized Tanita® Distributor and we have a shipping & handling of $15.00 for any model Tanita® baby scale delivered in the continuous 48 states of the USA.

If you can't afford the Tanita® infant scales since they are pricy and are unable to go any lower with the prices online we offer several alternative baby/infant scales not made by Tanita®.  The two models below represent the vast majority of our baby scale sales since they offer excellent value, performance and cost less than Tanita® 1583.  Please review the following models before you make your final decision.

My Weigh MBS2010 BabyScale [40 lb x 0.5oz] specifications offer readability by 0.5 over the entire weighing range verses the Tanita® 1583 is a dual range scale offering readability only up to 20 pounds with 0.5 ounces readability.  Plus the MBS2010 has a detachable weigh indicator and the scale operates on either AC adapter or battery.  The Tanita® 1583 operates on battery ONLY.  Here is the final clincher the MBS2010 cost less than the Tanita® 1583.  The MBS2010 is only $88.00 plus $15 S&H and has a Lifetime warranty.

Our second alternative is the Siltec Electronic Baby Weighing Scale BS1 [0-20 lb x 0.5 oz] [20-44 lb x 1 oz] with AC adapter for only $124.99 plus $15 S&H.  The BS1 has the same specs as the Tanita® 1583 but the display is an LED for easy viewing verses the 1583 is LCD.  Plus again the Tanita® 1583 operates on battery ONLY, while the Siltec BS1 operates on either AC adapter or battery.
