The Withings Facebook app! Wanna be a beta tester?

Hear ye ! Hear ye! I am very proud to announce that we are about to release a Facebook application to play with your body scale! Yes, you read that correctly. This application is designed to monitor your own weight and your friend’s weight with fun, motivation and efficiency.

How is this possible, you might ask? Well, it’s simple my dear friend. This application is called Guess My Weight”. The main goal is to figure out if your friends will be heavier or thinner on their next weigh in. You can bet on the next weigh in result, according to your intuition. To help you make this decision, you can access your friends’ graphs, in order to pick out a global trend.

Here is what you can do:

1) Watch your weight

2) Check out your Guess’ results

3) Guess your friend’s weight

4) Collect advises from your friends and coach them

But it’s not that easy to guess, I am warning you! When you bet, you are gambling points. The riskier your bet is (meaning that the other players made a different decision), the more points you get. And if your guess is wrong, you can lose all your points! We’ve been playing and testing Guess My Weight for one week now, and I’ve got the worst ranking among the team :-(    So be careful when making the guess about someone, it’s quite tricky.

Now, we are looking for some beta testers among our readers. Would you like to try Guess My Weight out and give us your opinion? You will be playing with the whole Withings team! If you do, leave a comment at the end of this blog post before July 13th, because on July 13th, we will randomly pick out some of you to play with us :)
