Frequently asked questions?

What is SmartPlate TopView?

SmartPlate TopView is Your Personal Nutritionist®, a countertop device with a portable plate that, when paired with the SmartPlate Android or iOS app, analyzes, and tracks your whole meal at once within seconds, then gives you expert, personalized guidance to move you closer to your goals.

How does it work?

SmartPlate TopView let’s you track the way you eat. In contrast to a cumbersome food-scale-and-log system that requires a user to weigh a meal’s food items individually, then enter each weight into a tracking application to get nutrition values, SmartPlate TopView allows you to instantly analyze and track up to three separate food items – a complete meal! – at once. Just load the dishwasher and microwave safe plate with your favorite food items, snap a photo with your Android or iOS phone, and get all your nutrition information instantly. SmartPlate will accurately identify, analyze, and track your entire meal, giving you a level of accuracy and convenience that has never been possible before.

How can it help me?

Studies show even health-conscious eaters struggle with estimating portion sizes. People underestimate their overall food intake by an average of 30 percent and sometimes as much as 40 percent for some groups, including women and people struggling with obesity. For people working towards fitness and performance goals, the “portion distortion” is made even worse when viewed through the psychologic and metabolic effects of exercise and sports training on food intake. Connected devices have disrupted the way people from all walks of life track and analyze their activity. SmartPlate TopView™ is poised to do the same for nutrition, removing the obstacles and providing insight to help people make smarter food choices.

What are the three partitions for?

The three partitions help you balance your protein, fat, and carbohydrate intake. Each partition can weigh up to two pounds of food. The partitions are made of BPA/BPS-free, non-stick, heat-resistant, microwave and dishwasher safe, food grade plastic.

Can I put the plate in the dishwasher, microwave, and refrigerator?

SmartPlate TopView is dishwasher, microwave, and refrigerator safe.

Can I take SmartPlate on-the-go?

Yes, SmartPlate comes with a portable lid that seals the plate like a food container, so you can stow it in your bag for later.

What if I'm eating out?

SmartPlate TopView comes with a premium lifetime subscription to the SmartPlate app, which enables users to leverage the platform’s food recognition technology on-the-go.

While the app alone can never deliver the same precision analysis available by pairing with the data collected by the SmartPlate TopView countertop device, it will make tracking a breeze with one-snap access and predictive searching of the same expansive database of foods. Just open the SmartPlate app, snap a picture of your meal, and adjust the portion size if needed. The Smart Plate app also lets you scan to track with a database of barcodes for more than 400,000 packaged foods and beverages. Easy peasy!

Do I need to purchase a SmartPlate TopView to try the app?

No, we invite you to get a taste of SmartPlate’s industry-leading image recognition for yourself by downloading the SmartPlate app for free. While an app alone can never deliver the same precision analysis available by pairing with the data collected by the SmartPlate TopView countertop device, it will make tracking a breeze with one-snap access and predictive searching of the same expansive database of foods. It features photo recognition of 1,000+ foods, text searching of hundreds of thousands more, simple macronutrient tracking, and expert prompts to guide you to your weight management goal. Plus, it’s ad-free!

Does SmartPlate work if I don’t have wifi?
