  1. To adjust the target weight and RPM, press and hold the tare button until the weight starts blinking.
  2. When the weight starts blinking, tap tare button to increase and tap the power button to decrease. 
  3. When you reach the desired target weight, wait 5 seconds to move on to the RPM adjustment.Screen_Shot_2022-08-04_at_15.54.00.png
