Withings just develop a new feature. From now on, you can generate and print out your children growth curves!
By using your kids’ measures (height, weight and BMI), Withings dashboard creates the same follow up tool existing in personal health record. It allows you to visualize your children growth and to monitor their development. As a matter of fact, the charts display percentile curves representing where the average of children are in their height, weight and BMI at a precise age.
To generate those curves, click on the “share” button on you dashboard, and then on “print my charts” in the opening window. Select “Growth from 1 to 18” to automatically download your kid’s chart.
If, like me, you think losing weight is like a battle, well I’m proud to present nowadays’ weapons. Withings body scale obviously could stand for a shield and your iPhone and CaloryGuard 2 is the sword you need!
CaloryGard 2 is an iPhone app that launches today its new release: CaloryGuard 2.7. Among other improvements, your Withings measures can be automatically synchronized.

Following last week thread, we are proud to announce a new partnership with another renowned health online service provider: Google Health. From this day, your Google Health profile will be automatically updated in real-time thanks to our scale’s built-in WiFi connection.
For those of you who might be clueless, Google Health is a free personal health record. Launched last year, this EHR (Electronic Health Record) allows users to store, organize, and manage health information all in one place. Cybernauts can also choose to share that information with family members, caregivers and doctors.
An API compatibility between those two platforms goes hand in hand with our company philosophy: offering as much value-added services as we can without interfering with your daily life. Instead of having to enter manually your weight and fat-mass in the “Tests Results” menu, your personal data are effortlessly registered and processed in your Google profile. You, and the people you whish, would be able to follow your weight evolution.
The linking procedure is very simple. Connect on your WiThings account and allow Google Health platform from the “Share” panel. For a more detailed explanation, feel free to have a look on our website http://www.withings.com/en/bodyscale/sharing
