- Are professional athletes
Female (non-athlete) – Icon on the right

Female athlete – Wait for two icons at once (the female and weight lifting icons)
Male athlete - Wait for two icons at once (the male and weight lifting icons)
- Press the center button again to lock-in whether you are an athlete or non-athlete.
- Next, enter your height. It will be pre-selected in centimeters. If you know your height in centimeters, feel free to enter it. If you would prefer to change the metric to feet/inches simply press the center button to move onto the next step, (you’ll go back to change the metric at the end).
- Press the center button to lock-in your height or move onto the next step if you wish to change the metric later.
- Next, enter your age. Press the center button again to lock-in your age.
- This next step is where you change the metric on the scale, however, nothing will be blinking. Press the left arrow to toggle through the different metrics and update your height information.
- Press the center button to complete your profile.
2) Step on the Scale to Get Your Weight/Additional Info
- Place your scale on a hard flat surface on the ground so you can easily step up onto it. Take off your shoes and socks so that you’re barefoot for the best reading.
- Press the center button, then use the arrows to scroll through until it lands on your profile number (P0 – P9). Once it’s on your profile number, don’t do anything. Wait for it to stop blinking before you step on.
- Step onto the scale with both feet, so that the upper and lower soles of your feet are touching the silver circles. Stand upright until the numbers on the scale stop moving, to generate your weight.
- Your weight will display first, and then after that it will disappear and show you the rest of your important body metrics including your BMI, body fat percentage, water percentage, and more. It will rotate between showing your weight and these other metrics three times before it turns off.

When to Use the 310 Smart Scale
It’s best to use the scale in the morning after going to the bathroom, around the same time each day, for consistency. You should also wear as little clothing as possible. Since your weight will fluctuate throughout the day, and go up after you eat and drink, this timing will give the most accurate reading.
Weighing yourself on the 310 Smart Body Weight Scale day-to-day is beneficial so you can see vital measurements such as the water percentage in your body (to see how hydrated you are), and protein percentage to see if you’re getting enough of this macronutrient. Other measurements, such as your weight and body fat percentage are great to monitor once a week, since they likely won’t change much from day-to-day, but over longer stretches.
