Withings has a nice online guide for setting up your new scale. Here’s a quick summary of how you set it up:
- Install the batteries
- Plug in the scale to your computer
- Go to http://start.withings.com/scale and create a free Withings account
- Run the scale setup application to connect the scale to your WiFi network
- Disconnect the scale from your computer and put it in your bathroom!
CONCLUSION: I give the Withings documentation a rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars. It covers most of the information you need to get started, but it could use a little more detail on the section where you connect the scale to your WiFi network.
