RENPHO’s Smart Body Scales are innovative technologies with features meticulously designed to help you reach your health and fitness goals more efficiently.
By using any of our smart scale models, you can keep track of 13 body composition metrics, from body weight, skeletal muscle and bone mass to basal metabolic rate to muscle mass, body water and body fat percentage. You gain insights and trends over time about your overall health and fitness.
Our smart scales combine the power of the bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) technology with key factors such as your age and height for more accurate readings. To ensure consistency in results, you may need to calibrate your RENPHO scale based on the frequency of use and the precision level.
Read on to know how to calibrate your RENPHO scale. We will walk you through the process of calibrating your device to maintain reliable data for your health and fitness journey.
What is Scale Calibration
Before we dive into the calibration process, let's understand what calibration is and when it is necessary for your digital bathroom scales.
Calibration in general helps ensure that the internal settings of your scales are working correctly to provide accurate measurements. Calibrating your RENPHO scale not only helps maintain its accuracy but also enhances your overall experience.
Calibration, coupled with proper usage, is vital to maintaining the reliability of your device and aiding you in effectively hitting your goals.
When to Calibrate Your Scales
We recommend that you calibrate your scale if:
• Your body scale has been turned upside down
• It is moved to a different location. This is advisable to account for any environmental changes.
• You suspect that you are getting inaccurate measurements
Preparing for Calibration
Before initiating the calibration process, remove obstructions or items on the scale that could interfere with the calibration.
Step 1: Start by placing the scale on a clean, level, and stable location.
Placing your scale on a flat surface as opposed to uneven flooring helps prevent any inconsistencies during the calibration process and subsequent measurements.
Step 2: Place one foot on the scale to power on the device.
Turn on the RENPHO scale and allow it a few moments to stabilize for optimized calibration process. Wait for the LED screen to light up.
Step 3: Step off the scale once it is on.
This signals the start of the calibration process.
Step 4: Wait for the display to read “CRL” or “0.00.” If not, repeat steps 2-3.
The display “0.00” indicates that the calibration process is finished. You can start using the device for your usual measurements.
Step 5: Weigh yourself properly.
During the measurement, keep your weight centered directly above and over the scale as much as possible.
Step 6: View your results on the RENPHO Health App.
Wait for the scale to shut off automatically (about 10 seconds). Then, view the results on your RENPHO Health App account.
Keep Your User Manual
We highly recommend that you familiarize yourself with the user manual provided by RENPHO, as it contains specific instructions and guidance for your particular model.
After calibrating your RENPHO scale, if you still encounter inaccurate results, it might be because of internal error. You may resolve this by resetting your scale. To do this, take one battery out for 5 seconds and put it back in.
Calibrate your device, as needed, and enjoy the benefits of precise measurements on your path to a healthier lifestyle!
It is important to remember that our weight fluctuates throughout the day. Your weight may fluctuate between 2 and 4 pounds daily as the water inside your body shifts. Additionally, your food and water intake could cause some weight fluctuation.
Maintaining Your Scale
To ensure your scale continues to operate at an optimum level, it's essential to maintain your RENPHO scale properly. Here are a few tips to help you keep your scale in optimal condition:
Regular cleaning: Clean your scale regularly using a soft, damp cloth. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that may damage the surface of the scale.
Handle with care: When moving or transporting your scale, handle it with care to prevent any impact or shock that could affect the operation of your smart scale.
Check for wear or damage: Routinely inspect your scale for any signs of wear, damage, or loose components.
Designed to provide you with your health metrics, smart body fat scales are important tools to help you reach your health goals. It is, thus, vital to ensure that they’re operating at its optimum level.
Calibrating your RENPHO scale is a crucial step in maintaining accurate measurements for your health and fitness tracking. Follow the step-by-step guide outlined in this article to see reliable body composition measurements.
