Some of you asked us to change the default message the scale currently tweets (by introducing fat mass or lean mass or the difference since the last weigh-in, etc…).
We have two requirements here : we want to keep it simple and user-friendly. Read more
Runners from all Europe, Withings just made a new partnership with a very complete sport platform: Sportics. It offers a wide range of services around fitness and all kinds of sports. For instance, the platform supports a lot of sport devices such as Polar, Suunto, Ciclo Sports, Garmin, Concept2, and many more! You can also work on your motivation, benefit from some real-time coaching, accept challenges, or analyze your workouts. This analysis will be even more precise when you connect your Withings account to Sportics.
To connect your Withings account to Sportics, go on www.sportics.net and then click on the tab “Control Center”. On the right, you will see a small logo representing the Settings menu.
Click on it and open “Data transmission”. Copy and paste your Withings URL (given in your Withings dashboard, in the “Share” panel) into the URL box.
After clicking on the save button, you will be able to watch your graphs in the “Fitness” menu, with the “Weight control” option.
Breaking news! As many of you have requested, Withings is currently developing a free iPad version of Wiscale: Wiscale HD. Here is a small demo of Wiscale HD’s beta (Beware, it’s very cheesy).
As you might have noticed, we kept the same basic structure as the iPhone version, so that you don’t get lost. But this app also has some great new stuff. The first one is that we added up a moving average curve (the white one).
It helps to see your global weight trend, distilled from the daily fluctuations. You can have check out our reference: The Hacker Diet to get more information.
The second one is that you can choose to display your measures in a graph (as usual) OR to consult all your weighs in on a list to capture all the numbers in a blink of the eye.
More add-ons are planned, but let’s keep it for next time, shall we?
Wiscale HD for iPad should be available on the Itunes Store within a few weeks. We will keep you posted!
