Care and Maintenance
• Treat your scale with care — it is a precision instrument. Do
not drop it or jump on it.
• Do not place heavy objects on the scale for long periods.
This could adversely affect accuracy.
• Do not place the scale in direct sunlight, extreme temperature
or humidity.
• Clean the scale with a damp cloth. Do not use chemical
cleaning agents.
• If the scale will not be used, remove the batteries.

Battery Installation
Scale runs on four AA batteries (purchase separately).
1. To install batteries, turn scale over and remove two battery
compartment covers, located on the right and left side of the
unit.
2. Insert two AA batteries into each compartment, observing
proper +/– polarities as indicated.
3. Replace the battery compartment covers.
Note: To conserve battery power, the scale shuts off automatically
after a few seconds of inactivity.

Operation
MODE Setup
To activate the scale, step once on the glass platform, then release.
To select from MODE 1 to MODE 4, press the MODE button.
When the MODE changes, it is reported by the voice speaker
(when active) and appears on the LCD.
MODE 1 (Weight Measurement)
Weight is measured and displayed silently.
MODE 2 (Height and Weight Measurement)
Height is measured first, followed by weight. Both measurements
are reported by the voice speaker (when active) and shown on
the LCD.
MODE 3 (Weight Measurement and Weight Comparison)
Weight is measured and reported by the voice speaker (when
active) and shown on the LCD. If the preset weight is above 0,
the scale compares actual weight versus preset weight and
reports the increase or decrease.
11
Operation
MODE 4 (Height Measurement)
Height is measured when activated. The scale makes four attempts
to measure height. If the measurement is successful, it appears on
the LCD and is stated through the voice speaker. The scale switches
off automatically in a few seconds. If the measurement is not
successful, the scale switches off immediately.
Preset Weight
To set your preset “target” weight, enter MODE 3 and press the
SET button. Preset weight data appears on the LCD. To change a
preset, press the SET button as needed to reach the desired
number. To change the value of the number up or down, press
the +/– button.
Voice Speaker
To switch the voice speaker on or off, press the X button. When
the voice speaker is active, a X appears on the LCD.
Wireless Alignment Board
To calculate height, sound waves from the scale’s Ultrasonic
Window reflect off the Wireless Alignment Board and back
12
Operation
again. The board includes a laser light function to ensure accurate horizontal orientation.
1. To measure height, place the WIRELESS ALIGNMENT
BOARD on top of your head, extending over the scale’s
Ultrasonic Window.
2. To check positioning of the WIRELESS ALIGNMENT BOARD,
place the board horizontally on top of your head and press
the LASER LIGHT button located on top. When board placement is flat or horizontal, the laser beam points just in front
of the feet of the user. This position produces an accurate
height measurement. If the board is tilted up, the beam
points further away from the feet; the resulting measurements
will be larger than actual height. If the board is tilted down,
the beam points on your feet; the resulting measurements
will be smaller than actual height.
Note: Height can be measured using any flat object placed on
top of your head, although accuracy may suffer due to uncertain
horizontal orientation.
13
Operation
Measuring Height On The Scale
During MODE 2 and MODE 4, height measurements can be
taken while standing on the scale directly or standing on the
floor. To activate the scale, step once on the glass platform, then
release. The voice speaker states “Please wait.” The LCD cycles
between “ ” “UU”. Do not step on the scale again until the
LCD cycle is completed. To measure height, stand on the scale
and place the wireless alignment board horizontally on top of
your head, extending over the scale’s ultrasonic window. The
voice speaker states: “Now, start measuring your height. Please
stand upright.” Two short beeps followed by one long beep signals the measurement is complete. The height measurement
appears on the LCD and is reported through the voice speaker.
For example, if your height is 5' 10", you will hear: “Your height
is five feet ten inches.”
UU
Measuring Height From The Floor
To measure height standing on the floor, stand in front of the
scale and place the wireless alignment board horizontally on top
of your head, extending over the scale's ultrasonic window.
The voice speaker states: “Now, start measuring your height.
14
Operation
Please stand upright.” Two short beeps followed by one long beep
signals the measurement is complete. The height measurement
appears on the LCD and is stated through the voice speaker.
Notes:
• If the height measurement fails, the scale automatically remeasures, up to four times. If the height measurement
cannot be taken successfully, the scale switches to weight
measurement automatically.
• Height is measured using the wireless alignment board or any
flat object placed on top of your head.
Weight Measurement
In MODE 1, when the LCD shows “0.0”, the scale is ready. Step
onto the glass platform with your feet spaced evenly apart and
your weight evenly distributed. Stand still and upright until the
scale calculates your weight and it appears on the LCD.
In MODE 2 and 3, the voice speaker states: “Now, start measuring your weight.” Step onto the glass platform with your feet
spaced evenly apart and your weight evenly distributed. Stand
still and upright until the scale calculates your weight. When
15
Operation
completed, weight information is reported by the voice speaker
and shown on the LCD.
Evaluating Increased/Decreased Weight
In MODE 3, with your preset target weight set, the scale compares actual weight to your target weight and reports the difference. For example, if your preset weight is 130 lbs. and your
current weight is 135 lbs., the scale states: “You are five pounds
over your goal.”
Note: If preset weight is 0, the scale will not evaluate weight
difference.
16
Troubleshooting
• Ensure that you do not step on the scale until the LCD indicates that it is ready.
• If “OF” appears on the LCD, this indicates the scale is overloaded.
• If “----”, “L000” or “Err” appear on the LCD, this indicates a
scale malfunction. Ensure that the scale is on a flat, level floor
and not touching a wall. To restore normal function, turn the
scale off, then back on again.
• Ensure the batteries are installed properly. If the scale still
does not function properly, replace the batteries.
• If the voice speaker volume becomes low, this indicates weak
batteries. Replace batteries.
