Garmin Index Smart Scale – Getting Started with a Connected Scale

Ready to step up to a healthier you? Say hello to the Garmin Index™ Smart Scale. The connected scale with metrics that matter. This video will guide you through the basics of setting up and using your smart scale for the first time. If you plan to use your Garmin Index™ Smart Scale on a carpeted surface, you’ll want to press one of the four risers onto each foot of the scale to ensure the most accurate weight and body composition measurements. Let’s choose what units you want to measure your weight and mass metrics in. You can move the slider switch to choose between stone, pounds or kilograms. Next, let’s put the batteries in. Your scale operates on 4 AA batteries which are included. To install just press the latch on the battery cover and insert the batteries. Then replace the battery cover. After installing the batteries, the three wireless indicator lights will flash and a wrench icon will appear on the LCD screen to indicate the scale is ready to set up. Now before you can use your Garmin Index Smart Scale, you’ll need to set it up to connect with a Wi-Fi network. Just go to and select the appropriate setup option. Select “Mobile” to set up your scale using the Garmin Connect™ Mobile app. Or, select “WPS” to set up your device using a WPS enabled Wi-Fi router. Or, select “Computer” to set up your device using the Garmin Express™ application on your computer. A USB ANT Stick™ accessory, which is not included, will be needed to set up the device using a computer. Whichever option you select, just follow the onscreen instructions to set up and configure your scale. Your Garmin Index scale distinguishes between users automatically, based on weight and frequency of use. When you tap the scale and step on, it weighs you and displays your initials on the screen to verify your identity. You can simply tap the screen to sequence through the list of other users registered to the scale. For best results, stand with your bare feet placed flat and evenly on the glass surface of the scale. Avoid contact with the LCD screen or the Garmin logo. Each time you tap and step on the scale, it measures your weight and other metrics. The LCD screen will display the calculated measurements automatically, moving to the next item in the sequence every few seconds. However, if you’re the impatient type, you can always just tap the device to move through the measurements more quickly. Your Garmin Index scale uses Wi-Fi to automatically sync your measurements to Garmin Connect™, our free online fitness community. Then, from your computer or compatible mobile device, Garmin Connect lets you see your data in more detail and review your progress against your goals. To get the most from your Garmin Index™ Smart Scale, you’ll want to avoid harsh treatment or prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures. To clean, just dampen a soft cloth with a mild detergent solution, swab and wipe dry. That’s it for now. You’re all set to step up and weigh in for a healthier lifestyle with the help of our Garmin Index™ Smart Scale.
