Lollipop, Lollipop everywhere

November 19, 2014

Have you heard about the new kind of “Lollipop”? We’ve managed to pop the sweeter side of health right into your phone with bright colors and a new design interface! The menus are tutti frutti, the sliding effects are sweeter – and it’s all calorie free!

Enjoy this new design! You can even browse it sideways!

Every step counts

We know that there’s a link between activity levels and weight management. Instead of counting steps in your head, let Health Mate do it for you! Your smartphone can now count your steps for you if you don’t have a Withings Pulse or if you forgot it at home: simply turn on the step counting and enjoy the ride!

You’ll be able to check your activity level on the fly, and browse through your step count history. For the first time, you will be able to see how your steps are adding up, and make decisions based on this information. Will you reach the recommended 10,000 steps a day? How many badges will you unlock? Will you be first in your Leaderboard after you’ve challenged your friends? We can’t wait to see how the new update helps you and hear your feedback!

Your lifeline

The Timeline is like a new home. As soon as the app launches, you can scroll through a history of all your data. The Timeline also works as a coach providing insights, badges and weekly recaps. The Timeline is constantly updating with new content to enrich your experience and to help you improve your health. What’s not to love?

Bug busters

We fixed many bugs in the app, including:
– Installing new products is much easier.
– Remember when we asked to access your contacts in order to invite friends to your Leaderboard? Say goodbye to the hassle. Try out the new process, and the special surprise!
– The battery level of the Pulse and of the smart scales now appears on the list of devices (Blood Pressure Monitors coming soon).
