How to use the WW app

The My Day dashboard

  • My Day is your home base. Toggle between food and activity using the split screen to track them.
  • To look up certain foods or activities, type a search term into the search bar, hit 'Search' and browse the list.
  • Tap or swipe right to add items to your dashboard.
  • In your profile (your picture at the top) you can keep your 'why' to hand—your personal reasons for wanting to boost your health and wellbeing long-term.
  • To track how much water you're drinking, simply tap the “+” icon in the water row that appears on your home screen. Doing so will track water for the serving size selected, and you will see a water animation to indicate the amount that has been tracked. 


Weigh-in at home

You can weigh-in using your personal scale and digitally track your weight on the WW app.

A Weight Check-in card will appear on the My Day screen on your weigh-in day. Tap to track your weight.

If you want to update your weight or track it on a different day, here’s how:

If you have an iPhone, iPad, or Android:

  • From My Day, tap your Profile icon in top right corner (iPhone or iPad) or in the bottom menu (Android).
  • Click “Track weight”.
  • Enter your current weight.
  • Tap “Track weight”.
  • Take a moment to reflect and record your week, then tap “Done”.


Discover recipes

  • Browse 8,000+ recipes by selecting a category such as 'quick & easy' and then apply filters such as meal time or SmartPoints value.  
  • If you find a recipe or meal you like but want to customize it, hit the edit button to make it suit your taste.
  • You can also build your own recipes and meals and save them to your 'Favorites.'  


Barcode Scanner

  • The barcode scanner is at the top. Tap it and scan over the barcode of a packaged food to get its SmartPoints value. 
  • It's super helpful in deciding what's worth it to you.  Once you've scanned a food or drink, you can save, favorite, and track it. 
  • You can also view a list of all items you've scanned for quick reference.
