How does the Smart Diet Scale weigh four separate food items on a normal plate all at once?
The Smart Diet Scale’s patented technology allows you to do this. This is one of the cool features that separates us from everybody else! Our Patented weight sensors will weigh each separate item on your plate individually, then display the weight of each item from your plate on the four displays.
You can also use our exclusive Smart Diet Plates to help visualize and control your portions. Moreover, you can also use the Smart Diet Scale without any plates.
I understand the Smart Diet Scale has four separate weighing quadrants, but do I also have the ability to weigh one large item? (Example: a large steak)
Yes, you can place a large food item, such as a steak, on the Smart Diet Scale and our Smart Technology will only display the weight of that item.
Can I add specific food which is not part of your database to the app?
If there is a specific food which is not in our database, we do have the ability to add it. Just send an email via the Nutritionix Contact Page and Nutritionix; who manages our food database, will add the food within 2-3 business days.

We recommend once a year or depending on your usage.
Will the scale turn off automatically to save battery life if not in use or if I forget to turn off the scale after use?

2) Smart Diet Scale also has a light dimming program. After 20 seconds of non-use, its display will dim but the scale will not turn off. All you need to do is place another item on the scale and the display will light up again. Please watch https://youtu.be/FCRRy62TPlo
