Reporting meter reading to energy company

I have Goldenergy and have the app set up. I am trying to understand how I submit readings to get accurate billing. I have a photo from yesterday of digital meter. In the app there are three things to enter: vazio, ponta and cheia. All are kwH readings. But I have no clue which numbers are which on the meter. Also there are numbers already associated with these but I don't know if they are estimates or if a digital meter equals a smart meter and that Gold is getting remote readings. Can anyone shed some light on this? I just want to be sure I do it right so I don't have to fix it later. Thanks!

I suppose you have it figured out by now.  I was scratching my head for a minute over this, so I searched the web for the model name of my contador, site restricted to my electricity provider's site "cx1000-6 s"

That turned up a page that described how you do it with a later model, but it was close enough.  I had to push the button on the front of the contador, until 1.8.1, and then the next two 1.8.2 and 1.8.3 followed in sequence providing the respective terms.
