Turn on your well-being – Get the new Withings app

August 13, 2012

Since 2009, we’ve been working to invent, shape and produce smart connected devices that help you easily take care of your health and well-being.

During that time, we spent many hours thinking on how we could help people reach a healthier lifestyle, how we could simplify the way you can monitor and improve your well-being in your everyday life.

To fulfill this promise, we’re pleased to introduce you today to our new app – your new Personal Health Companion if you’d like.

The Withings Health Companion app doesn’t simply store your health data. It makes you care about it.

Free and designed for everyone

We learned three essential facts since we started working on connected health devices:

1. Knowing where you stand is a huge step towards getting where you want to be.

2. Monitoring your health data shouldn’t be painful or require extra time.

3. Achieving a healthy lifestyle should be made accessible to anyone.

We applied these lessons to build an app that is free and can be used by anyone who wants to lose a few pounds, exercise more, keep an eye on their BP or sleep better. It lets you enter your health data manually or upload it automatically from a wide range of partner devices and apps, including:

  • The Withings smart scale
  • The Withings blood pressure monitor
  • The free RunKeeper App
  • The BodyMedia FIT armbands
  • The Zeo headband

The state of your health – in a snapshot

This app is designed to become the hub for your health data over time. It gives you a snapshot of the state of your health through 4 key variables including: your weight, amount of sleep, level of activity and blood pressure.

The Withings Health Companion is like an old friend, always here when you need them, keeping track of your data and turning “cold” numbers into easy to understand curves, smoothing graphs into one trend line, ignoring the highest and lowest readings and preventing any potential emotional roller-coaster.

An everyday companion

We wanted the Withings Health Companion to help you set and achieve your own goals and then leave it down to you.

You’ll witness first-hand how the decisions you make – such as going for a run or eating healthier – pay out and while impact your general condition. Small lifestyle changes can yield significant benefits in the long term.

At the same time, the Withings Health Companion is here to help you along the way, turning your long terms goals into achievable targets, so that each time you weigh-in, go for a run, track your BP or track your sleep, it gives you a motivational tip to help you reach your ideal weight, meet the 150 minutes of recommended weekly activity or the 7 hours of sleep per day.

We’ve turned this companion into a butterfly that evolves over time, light enough to move on when it’s time and friendly enough to be taken for a ride.

So what are you waiting for? Get the app now – we’d love to have your feedback.
