What seems like an unlikely pair, your body scale and your television, comes together seamlessly with the partnership between Withings and Panasonic – a leader in high definition and connected TV entertainment — as users of both innovative devices can now access their Withings health dashboard right on their VIERA ConnectTM-enabled VIERA HDTV screen with the touch of a button. Now, your data dashboard can be easily accessed directly from the VIERA CAST™ menu page.
Panasonic’s VIERA Connect IPTV feature allows owners of VIERA ConnectTM-enabled 2011 VIERA HDTVs to enjoy internet content directly on their television with the push of a button and without the need for a PC. VIERA Connect offers a robust collection of applications including expanded video streaming, and two-way interactive features from gaming to social networking, and fitness programs. They were at the CES to annouce their new product and they did not mince their words…
For once, I am going to quote my boss, Cédric Hutchings : “Withings is working towards a new era in connected health devices and this partnership is yet another move in that direction. Making your health data as easily accessible as possible is a key feature of the WiFi Body Scale. Now, you can access all your information via your MAC, PC, mobile device or television.”
Exiting, isn’t it?
