The new iOS 13 update may affect your ability to connect the scale.
Apple will ask that you allow Withings access to permissions that you may already have granted to Withings. To ensure your device functions properly, you’ll need to have the latest version of the Health Mate app. Next time you’re using the app, a pop-up will appear and ask for Bluetooth permissions. Please make sure you continue to allow us to access your Bluetooth: it allows us to connect to your Withings device and sync your data—nothing more.

If weight values are off here is how to recalibrate the scale:
Remove the batteries from the scale for a full 60 seconds and then reinsert them. Once you have done this, place the scale on hard floor, wait 10 seconds, and weigh yourself.
It is important that you wait 10 seconds after placing down or moving the scale before weighing yourself as the scale needs several seconds to calibrate. You must also wait 10 seconds in between each weigh-in so that it can recalibrate.
