SET YOUR OWN GOALS
The 10,000 daily step goal recommendation may be difficult to reach at first, but with hard work and customizable goals, it is easily achievable. We're happy to introduce a new goal configuration setting so you can customize your daily step goal. We've also included a more user friendly way to set and achieve your target weight.
- Health Mate has been enhanced to fit better on the larger iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus screens.
- You can choose which days you want your Aura and Activité to wake you up.
- Continuous Heart Rate information measured by Withings Aura is now displayed along with your sleep analysis.
- Your Withings Activité will now synchronize with Health Mate with greater frequency.
Potential vs. Reality
This app/ hardware has the potential of becoming a next generation set of medical and motivational tools to improve and prevent health issues.
I own all of withings' devices. But the reality is that they lack of interface development. I constantly need to pair the devices with the app and the app itself could be far more intuitive and user friendly. At least that's my point of view.
I would love for the guys at withings to use some of the money they get for their devices which are not cheap by the way, and develop better interfaces for their devices. There are plenty of things they could do with their devices that they don't that it bothers me.
I really like their ideas and intentions but I think they fail at anticipating and listening the final users feedback.
Not happy 😡
Used to love it. Last time it worked correctly was March 17. App now "records" weights according to device settings in the app. However scale measurements no longer appear in the timeline or dashboard. I followed company directions for a reset March 23. One measurement successfully logged on. Now, nothing again. Scale shows connected to Bluetooth in my iphone settings, but it continuously shows connecting when app is opened. Trying to connect has significantly drained the batteries in my scale. Withings is no longer responding to emails requesting help.
My Pulse O2 still registers properly....
March 29 — Finally received response. It's the exact same form response/name that I received for my initial complaint a week ago. Ironically (?) I included their initial response in my follow-up email complaints and told them it did not work. Still not happy or impressed.
I bought the scale to record personal data. I have no interest in the challenge a friend feature highlighted in the March 17 update that caused the app to stop working.
Updated for iPhone 6. Excellent work there.
The leaderboard screen could use some work. I only have two other friends in the app and sometimes I can't see them both on the graph. It doesn't make sense. Exaggerate the scale, if necessary. All I care is whether I'm ahead or behind.
