We are very proud to announce that the Withings ecosystem has expanded yet again with a new partner, UP by Jawbone™!
One of the new metrics the Smart Body Analyzer measures is the resting heart rate. Thanks to our patent-pending technology, you can check your heart rate just by standing on the scale for a few seconds. But you might wonder, why is it important to follow this indicator? We will try to explain it here.
Since 2009, we’ve been working to invent, shape and produce smart connected devices that help you easily take care of your health and well-being.
During that time, we spent many hours thinking on how we could help people reach a healthier lifestyle, how we could simplify the way you can monitor and improve your well-being in your everyday life.
We’d like to know a little more about you so that we can better know what sort of communication you expect from us. For this purpose, we’ve made a survey on our Facebook page, it’s really very short and in exchange for answering it, you’ll be able to enter a contest to win the Withings product of your choice. There are 5 Wi-Fi Body Scales, 5 Blood Pressure Monitors and 5 Smart Baby Monitors to win! It doesn’t matter if you already own a Withings product or not, the survey and the contest are open to everyone. We hope many of you will take part in it!
One of the uses that we envisioned when we set out to make the Smart Blood Pressure Monitor was that people would use it to send their readings to their physician. We built features into the Withings app to help them do that, most notably with the option to send the measurements via e-mail.
At Withings, we believe that self-tracking is one of the keys to change. If the change you are trying to achieve is to get more fit, tracking your weight is of course essential and you can do that with the Wi-Fi body scale. Another factor that you can track is what you eat. Tracking what you eat can be a great help. It gives you a picture of how much you consume and you may even surprise yourself and identify those occasions where you over-consume.
It will also help you learn more about the real nutritional value of what you eat and let you make informed decision about what you will really gain by renouncing to a cupcake compared to, say, a can of soda.
