I don’t know if you were aware of it, but Withings has a forum where scale’s users can exchange their opinion and suggest new features to our team. We just finish to implement several of them. (The forum is available from your account, in the Help Wizard menu).
The first one is a dashboard widget for Mac OS X
, for people willing to access their curves directly from their control panel. More details to be unveiled very soon… ;)
The second feature is the possibility to choose an athlete mode for the body composition model
. As a matter of fact, high-level sportsmen do not have the same body structure as average Joe. Therefore, their body analysis must be adapted. I advised you to select the athlete version if you practice more than 8 hours per week and if you have a resting heart rate below 60 beats a minute.
The third one is an improvement of the fat mass display. From now one, you can chose to see your fat mass in percentage or in value units.
And last but not least, Linux users now have an installation software on their own. It is compatible with Linux kernel v2.6.26 minimum, CPU x86 32 bits and 64 bits. This pairing wizard has been tested on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (64 bits), Ubuntu 9.04 (32 bits), Ubuntu 9.10 (64 bits) and Debian Etch (32 bits).
So, thanks to you all for helping us improving Withings every day. Never hesitate to share with us your opinion!
