Fantastic system made phenomenal with the right gadgets
I used this long before owning any Withings products. The interface is clean, compatible with many third party apps and devices that do not force you into being a Withings customer, and is flexible. It was very helpful in my attempts to regain my fitness goals and I lost a lot of weight and started tracking toward healthy habits. Then I purchased a Withings scale and the Activité - WOW. it was even easier to meet and track my goals, set reminders and other motivators, and I've seen a doubling of progress toward the goals that I set at the beginning of the year. I owe my ability to truly make health a priority again to the simplicity and ease of the Withings universe.
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.
Could be better
I don't often write reviews, but in this case I am hoping creators will spend some time and fix what could be a super app! So excited to get my withings pop and scale and sync. But I find the app a bit confusing and hard to change. Let me say I have used the fitbit device and app, and am tech capable. I had entered blood pressure widget, figured out how to add heart rate, and BP widget disappeared! Disappointed that it didn't work with Lose It, I downloaded the touted MyFitnessPal. No where near the food data base, and harder to enter foods! Other Withing devices work with LoseIt.....why not the pop??
