How do you connect the Garmin Index smart scale with the Garmin Connect app?

The Garmin Index smart scale measures your weight, BMI, body fat, bone mass, moisture percentage and muscle mass. To keep track of your data you must of course connect it to the app. In this article I explain how to pair the scale with the app when you are already a Garmin Health user, but also when this is your first Garmin Health product. Once installed, the scale automatically forwards your results to the app, even if you don't have your phone with you.

Step 1: Prepare your Garmin Index scale for installation

  • Turn over the Garmin Index scale. Set the slider (KG, LBS or ST) to the desired position. You probably want kilograms, then choose KG.
  • Remove the cover for the batteries and insert the 4 supplied AA batteries. Replace the cover of the batteries and wait until you see the wrench in the scale display.

Step 2: Install the Garmin Connect app
