I can’t find the auto tare mode on my Pearl?
Atr is one of the modes that was added with the Pearl firmware 2.0. It's an auto-tare mode that will help you quickly tare and measure doses.
To add this mode to your scale, make sure to update to the latest firmware version on our Pearl Updater app that is available on both Android and iOS.
