Etekcity Smart Fitness Scale ESF17.
The Etekcity Smart Fitness Scale ESF17 is made from mainly Glass with a Plastic underside, it’s White in colour. On the top of the scales there’s a large LED display, on the bottom there are four non-slip rubber feet and the battery compartment. The scales measure 31.0cm x 31.0cm x 2.5cm.
Installation of the batteries is a simple process. Slide away the cover on the bottom and insert 4x AAA batteries ensuring correct polarity.
To be able to use the scale you’ll need to ensure that you operate only with dry bare feet, if you are wearing socks or any other foot covering the scales won’t operate.
You can use the Etekcity Smart Fitness Scale ESF17 without downloading any Apps, simply stand on the scales. But you won’t be able to change the weight units unless you download the App.
It’s far more better to use these scales in combination with the App, the App is called VeSyncFit and is available for both Android and iOS users. Download it from your App provider.
Now you’ll need to pair your phone with your scale, this is done by turning on Bluetooth on your device and then selecting the + icon in the App, this is found on the top right-hand corner. Step onto the scale with bare feet and add the device “ESF17”. Stand for around 5-10 seconds and if the pairing has been successful your weight measurement appears.
For ease I suggest you set up a user account, you’ll need to input details like, gender, name, birthday, and height to provide inciteful measurements. If you want you can upload your mugshot, but that’s up to you! You can set up an account for other members living in your household, that way each person’s data can be accurately recorded.
Once you have set up your account, you’ll need to ensure you select your account every time you start using the scale. If you have multiple users, you’ll need to press “My Account” on the bottom bar and select the correct user.
To start a reading, you’ll need dry bare feet. Stand on the scale and the scale will start to measure.
