Tanita managed to turn their common pedimeter, a $77 device known as the FB-730, into one that is able to send data to a nearby RFID travel card which is similar to those found on train and bus networks in Japan, Hong Kong and London. Once you have arrived home, all relevant data can be synchronized with a computer followed by uploading it to the company’s Karada Karute (Body Card) website, where one is able to monitor one’s ongoing progress. The current system from Tanita works only in Japan, but it has worldwide potential that can be explored sometime in the future.
