What's New in Version 2.17.1
Good news! Health Mate has been updated :)
We tracked and fixed some pesky bugs you may have found in Health Mate in particular around activities. Many thanks for your help and sorry for any inconvenience.
Do you like the app? Please rate it on the App Store! It would mean the world to our engineers (and their moms).
I've seen several reviewers criticize this App, but I'm not sure why. Withings created a great way for individuals and/or families to keep track of their weight, %body fat, blood pressure, daily activity and pulse rate. Granted, to take advantage of all the App's features, one needs to invest in a Withings' Wireless Scale and Withings' Automatic Blood Pressure Cuff (which was approved by the FDA -- no small task).
Even if you don't want to buy the extra equipment, you can still keep track of your activity and, perhaps most impressively, your heart rate. Honestly, I was really surprised at how accurate the App is at getting a person's heart rate by having the user place his/her finger over the camera for a few seconds. The HR was exactly the same as a hospital's pulse oximeter (I actually compared them).
Another great feature is being able to look at trends over time. These data can easily be printed or e-mailed to your healthcare provider. That's a very useful tool, indeed.
In short, this is a great App, and empowers individuals to understand and help control a few of the biggest risk factors for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease.

Excellent apps understanding the inputs to living well.
The Withings iOS app is an excellent app for gaining a better understanding of what small things impact your overall quality of life and health.
Without some reference to the empirical data on how you actually live, it is very difficult to make good decisions on how to improve your diet, exercise, blood pressure, and overall sleep behaviors. With the Withings app and the supporting tools provided by Withings, there is the opportunity to better understand what small changes can be made to improve your overall health.
I use every day Withings iOS application, blood pressure monitor, Aura sleep machine, body cardio scale and My Fitness Diet application. With each day I continue to be in lightened on the small changes that I can make to live a more healthy and better life.
Life is already short so let's live a little bit longer if we can...
Love the cardio scale
The app needs improvement. On the timeline page, next to each measurement, an assessment should be displayed without having to drill down. The PWV is the only measurement that displays "normal" on the front page. There's room for all the others to do the same.
Impossible to remember all the health targets, so with purchase, a poster-style glossy chart should be included that displays all the healthy ranges at a glance for each of the measurements. Then we could post this on the wall near the scale.
The app and device should initially install with all measurements activated. Then the user can disable ones they don't want. I had the scale for 2 months before I learned from FAQs that bone snd muscle mass were also available.
Blood pressure needs better explained that it is entered manually and can be deleted.
Technical support has been very well responsive to my questions.
