    Which date? There is no current date beeing displayed in HM. You mean the date of a past measurement that was 4 days ago?

    I bought yesterday, date on measurements pages on top of graph show as Mar 15, 2021. I didn't use it until last night at 703pm, so why would it show wrong date

    Understood. Have you set the location of the scale and checked for updates?

    Go to devices, then click on settings under the body+ then there is the option "Location of your scale" and if you scroll down also check for updates

    I thought I saw this phenomenon. Facts:

    • Body Cardio+ (software is current and location is correct)
    • Android Pixel 5 with latest HealthMate reinstalled
    • 3 day difference between stated state and actual measurement

    But in my case, I realized my perception was an illusion by one flaw and one design choice in the app.

    Tapping on the most recent data point in the week view pops up a bubble showing the weight value below a relative date ("today," "yesterday"). This bubble is the same color as the app's dark background, so lead me to believe that the tine line date (above the bubble and below the Weight, Body Composition, BMI graph labels) was related to the bubble. Today, that date is June 7. With no contrasts, your eye ignores that below "June 7," the app is showing the change in weight since the measurement one week ago. And the placement of the time line's date ("June 7") is visually above today's measurement (June 10).

    Suggestions for the developers:

    • Remember the info bubble showing the data value could have behind it the darker background of the "outside of good" range rather than the gray background behind "within good bounds" part of the graph. So introduce a contrasting color for the bubble's background or give it a thin border.
    • See what you can do about more accurate placement of the date on the time line -- or use a dot to indicate the actual location of the date on the time line.
    • Unrelated: please support landscape mode throughout the app. The graphs are best viewed in horizontal orientation, and should change when the device is rotated. On iPadOS, the graphs do rotate, but the list of measurements does not.

    A screenshot will help:
