How to Use the Bluetooth Scale

In this tutorial, you’ll learn:

THE NEW BLUETOOTH SCALE

A quick note: we used to partner with Escali’s Bluetooth kitchen scale, but recently we had our own custom scales built, and they are awesome. If you have an Escali scale, don’t worry. They still work just as well. 
In order to connect the Bluetooth scale please follow the directions below. Everything you need to know about connecting the scale is right here. It’s a very simple process.

TROUBLESHOOTING

If you’re having trouble still getting your Bluetooth scale to work for you, here are a few things to look at:

1. As mentioned in the instructions above, if you own an Escali scale, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE ESCALI APP. It interferes with Bar Patrol App.

2. Make sure your Bluetooth is toggled on in your settings. Sounds silly, but it happens.

3. If you’re looking for the Bluetooth scale to show up in your Bluetooth settings on your phone, STOP! As mentioned above, the scale will not appear in your device settings so please stop looking for it to appear.

4. When you use the scale for the first time, you should see a notification pop-up on your device asking permission to access the scale. Hit “Ok” in order to allow it to.

If you accidentally hit “Don’t Allow”, it will turn the Bluetooth off inside Bar Patrol App. Here’s how you turn it back on.

Go to Settings on your device and scroll down until you see the Bar Patrol App icon.
