Weight Watchers Scales By Conair
Weight Watchers Scales by Conair is bringing you a digital scale engineered to the highest precision standards. It will not only show your weight, but also do a body analysis, calculating values such as body fat and body water, which influence your weight readings. Stay in the know, whether you are losing, gaining, or maintaining your weight!
This Weight Watchers scale by Conair will not only monitor weight, but also do a thorough bio-impedance analysis: for each user, it will show body fat (both as a percentage as well as in absolute number of pounds), a body water percentage, a bone mass percentage, and the user’s body mass index. Up to four different user profiles can be entered into the scale, but it can also be used in “guest” mode, as a simple weight scale.
Using Your Scale
For best accuracy, place the scale on tile or hardwood floor, rather than uneven, flexible or soft flooring (such as carpet). In order for the scale to give you your body analysis readings, it needs to know your height, age, and gender. Once you have set yourself up as a user (for more detailed instructions, see the user manual), and you stand on the scale in bare feet (that’s important because otherwise the scale will not be able to do the bio-impedance analysis), make sure that your feet are touching the stainless steel electrodes. The scale will then give you your weight, your body fat as a percentage and as a weight, your body water percentage, your BMI (body mass index), and your bone mass. Monitor these over time to get a good picture of how you are progressing towards your goals.
Don’t Overdo It!
A surefire way to get overly concerned with your goal is to weigh yourself too often. We generally recommend that you weigh yourself no more than once a week when you’re dieting. That is the best way to prevent unnecessary concern with normal weight fluctuations, which are unrelated to your weight-loss efforts. Regardless of your weighing habits, it’s important that you’re consistent. Weigh yourself at the same time of time of day, wearing the same clothes each time, and try to balance your weight evenly on the scale each time.

I found the Setup Guide on the Conair site, here:
It isn't for this exact model but the instuctions were the same. The trick was to push SET first, after that it is obvious and easy.
No opinion so far on how well it works though, I just wanted to help others with the same setup problems we had.
If you can't get to that link here are the instructions:

The scale employs Bioelectrical Impedance, small bursts of electric current sent through lower half of body, to measure body composition. The resistance to electricity varies between adipose, muscular and skeletal tissue, meaning the electric current flows faster through water and muscle than it will fat. The leaner you are, the more body water you have, and consequently, the easier the current passes through. More body fat provides more resistance (impedance) to the current and therefore registers a higher percentage of body fat.
As a former personal trainer, I always preferred skin fold caliper measurements to the hand held BIA measures. In 10 yrs. measuring body fat, calipers were ALWAYS more accurate for athletes than non athletes, but all measures of body composition are susceptible to a margin of error. For instance, calipers only measure subcutaneous adipose tissue (fat under the skin) vs. other body fat deposits such as visceral adipose tissue (fat in the abdominal cavity) and are prone to human mistakes.
Results from of a recent study on the accuracy of Bioelectrical Impedance as a measure for percentages of BF and Water support the use of BIA technique as a simple, reliable and yet accurate method of assessing the percent of body fat in males and females, ([...]).Read more ›
I weigh myself each morning but only record once a week (daily to help me keep and eye on trends, and knowing I have to see that number in the morning helps cut down on the sweets and junk a bit too!) Thus far it has been accurate. To the person who saw a "gain" of 2.5 lbs in a day, it is possible to weigh that much more if you are retaining water, haven't had a bm recently (not to be gross, but it's true!), or have eaten something unusually heavy recently. It's not 2.5 lbs of fat, just 2.5 lbs of weight which will most likely be gone again soon.
For the price, this is a great scale if you're willing to read the directions and take the few minutes it requires to set it up. Note that if you just want to weigh yourself, you can just step on. It just won't tell you the other stuff (BFP, BMI, BD) without the setup.
