    Hi Rob - my scale updates to 2101 yesterday and stood on it this am. Vascular age read "X". All other body composition measurements read by scale.

    The app says I need 5 measurements to activate the vascular age feature. 

    On your first 5 attempts to scale read "X" for you when showing vascular age?

    Not an X, no. Shows a series of 5 dots that will be filled in before it gives you your vascular age and PWV readings.

    I got Xs when I did two things wrong:

    1. tried getting off the scales as soon as the weather came up -- but it hadn't ready my PWV yet.
    2. I was standing too far forward. The instructions say to put your heel on the second strip. I was trying too hard not to stand on the first strip, but your heel isn't a square shape! The pressure of the centre of your heel should be firmly on the second strip

    Haven't had any problems with failed readings besides these two user errors

    No the first measurements don't effect the quality. They just need to be successful. PWV jumps that quick yes.

    Thanks! That makes sense -- after all it's a fresh measurement it shows every day.

    I wonder if the vascular age is a moving average of last 5 results...
