Orbit b-hyve smart watering settings

I recently upgraded to an orbit smart sprinkler controller. It seems pretty easy for regular timed watering but I was trying to see how the smart watering settings. It takes into account soil type, sunlight amounts, sprinkler type and counts. When I put those details in it set up 2 separate runs at different times. 2 zones for 16 minutes and 2 for like 30 minutes. I'm in north Florida with sandy soil (selected sandy loam), my zones are mostly st Augustine grass and varying sun depending on zone. It was so confusing that I went back to times runs. Is anyone familiar with how to use these settings or where to get some guidance? I'm trying to find the right balance to conserve water even though it is from my well so I don't pay for it. I put in the well because I really screwed up when I reset the old controller not realizing I had 4 start times. My bill shot to $400 a few months before I figured out my stupid mistake. Thanks in advance.
