Tracking to Refuel: The Inside Story (Part 2 of 2)

You’ve all been longing for it and today is the day! Yes, today, the Withings Facebook app is finally available for everyone to use! If you’re eager to try it out, follow this link and check it out! You can read the rest of this post later. Come on, Go! Go! Go!

Now that the impatient ones are gone, let me tell you a little bit more about our Facebook application. Its name is “Guess My weight”. This idea all began as joke among the Withings’ team. Then, we soon realized it would actually be pretty cool to play with ones’ weight. Taking the complexity and drama away.

As explained in a previous article, this application has several purposes. First, you can monitor your weight and watch your graphs in one click.

However, the true innovation about Guess My Weight is that you can get your friends involved in your weight management. As a matter of fact, every time you weigh in, your friends can bet on the evolution of your graph. Will it go Up or will it go Down? Will you keep up your resolutions or will you crack? Therefore, your weight objectives become a game for them and you will benefit from their support and advice. You will no longer be alone, struggling to attempt your goal. All your friends will follow you in this adventure and check out your efforts with interest.

To try Guess My Weight, connect on Facebook and install it. If you have a Withings scale, you can synchronize it from the “Settings” tab. If you don’t have a scale, you have the possibility to create your own monitoring graph and to complete it manually—NO CHEATING!

Last but not least, I wanted to thank our beta testers who helped us to improve Guess My Weight. And don’t hesitate to tell us what you think of it!
