We found the “Auto-On” is the simplest way to use this body fat analyzer. All you need to do is step on the metal conductors and evenly distribute your weight on the scale.
Once you have completed the user set-up, the auto-detection will connect you to your profile. If the device doesn’t match up to any user profile, then the Weight Guru scale will only display your weight result.

Overall, the Weight Gurus Bluetooth Smart Connected Body Fat Scale is a lower end, digital scale, but does what it is designed to do.
There are a few little bug bears with the device and the main one if that you need to take a pic of the barcode every time your weight yourself, so that the scale can log your information.
Another small issue is the fact the application doesn’t seem to store bone and water mass, but as mentioned earlier, there are other applications you can download that will log these if that is important for you.
