What's New in Version 5.1.2
Thanks for using Weight Watchers! We've made some updates and bug fixes to give you the best experience possible. As new features become available, we'll be sure to highlight them here.
It almost makes tracking fun!
The biggest obstacle to weight loss is writing down everything you eat. This app makes that so much easier and (almost) fun! Start typing in a brand name and the app is already finding it along with its SmartPoints value. Now you just need to select it and it's added to your tracker. The app keeps an easy-to-read dashboard of your day: what you've eaten, how many points you've consumed, how many you have left for the day and how many flex points are remaining for the week. It also has a barcode scanner that scans barcodes on product packaging and reports its point value. I use this in the Supermarket all the time. The app shows you a bar chart of your weight loss progress and generates automatic messages to congratulate you or keep you motivated. Finally, it also has a Facebook-like community where other Weight Watchers members share their stories and photos. That part of the app includes a widget that makes it easy to show before and after photos. Be careful, though - spending time in this community gets addictive and before you know it, you've spent 30 minutes reading people's posts! This app is 100 times better than earlier versions. I'm finding it essential to losing weight (and I just reached my goal weight last week, so it works!). I have not experienced the issue other people reported about needing to log in all the time.
I love this app. I'm not very good about watching what I eat and I find diets to be really annoying. This app helps me do the weight watchers app a lot easier. This app helps me track what eat and what activities I do throughout the week. It motivates me to eat right and work hard by holding me accountable. It has a lot of suggestions as to what to cook, what to eat, and ideas to help me improve. I really like the barcode scanner, it allows me to pick up something and scan it to see how many points it is or to quickly track it. I also like how I can link it to my Fitbit and it tracks my activity points for me. I'm glad they made an app like this.
Still using it
After the initial week or so of using the new SmartPoints version of the WW app, I was lost and somewhat discouraged. Too much change--then this happened: 1) I actually learned about the program differences by reading the website and 2) I waited for the promised fixes to come. Now my Fitbit is syncing perfectly; my Favorites finally appear in the search box; and points totals are posted as used and remaining. Give the App some time you impatient 1-star users. It's getting better. The UPC scan function is more comprehensive than ever. As far as the new points allocations--well, I guess sugar and fat are finally and really out of favor. I like the new app.
