The App changes my wieght prgress automatically antkr4 — Aug 04, 2016 05:17PM PDT

Faced a bag/feature that pisses me off. I record my weight every day and quite often I can see that after some day the app adjusts my weight moving up or down to have a clear trend. For example it was 70.0 -> 69.5 -> 70.5 -> 69.8 and the system can make it like this 70.0 -> 70.0 -> 70.0!!! -> 69.8

It can be a reasonable figures, but I don't want to see this adjustments, I want to see the weight that I recorded.

Any idea how to switch this feature off?

Thank you for taking the time to contact us.

Our program rounds weight to show trends when the weight being inputed is so close together.

We recommend recording your weight and other measurements once a week, ideally in the same circumstances each time. For example, every Monday morning at 9:00, before breakfast. Our system will allow you to record measurements as often as once daily, but your weight can fluctuate quite a bit from day to day which is why we recommend a weekly check-in.
