Instead of a screen, the BC-1000 sends your numbers to a Garmin FR60 heart-rate watch ($80) or a $130 remote display and can sync to a PC via a USB drive or an iPhone. While the user interface can be tricky to master (old-school Windows software and no Mac compatibility), the Tanita offers ultra-serious athletes enough data to crash a supercomputer. $280; tanita.com
