Withings WiFi Scale

By Skip

Withings, manufacturer of the world’s first WiFi body scale, is teaming up with Peaksware, the world’s leading human performance software company. The alliance between the Peaksware expert software and the Withings scale’s sophisticated hardware ushers in a new era of easy-to-use services for health and fitness enthusiasts.

For the almost 500,000 registered users of TrainingPeaks, Peaksware’s premier software product, recommended by professionals from around the world to monitor and analyze performance, the Withings WiFi Body Scale is an opportunity to easily benefit from expert advice. The Withings Body Scale allows users of TrainingPeaks to seamlessly upload their body weight, lean & fat mass, and calculated body mass index (BMI) to their personal account on TrainingPeaks. No longer will users need to login just to record their weight, all they need to do is step on the scale and it’s done for them.

Dr. Rick Kattouf II, a professional dietitian and fitness trainer who uses TrainingPeaks to manage his clients, says: “In order to maximize human performance in life, fitness, and sport, it is imperative to understand your body composition. It is critical to monitor your fat mass and lean mass. The Withings WiFi scale allows you to monitor these numbers, which will be automatically sent to your iPhone, the web, and your TrainingPeaks account. As a coach, having the ability to monitor my clients’ body composition allows me to assist them in bridging the gap between where they are and where they want to be!”

“We are very proud to include integration with TrainingPeaks online training and nutrition software,” says Cédric Hutchings, co-founder of Withings. “The Withings scale introduces the new age of the Internet of Things, where devices can be considered as an open platform that can be used by experts to provide enhanced services. With the Withings body scale, we offer experts a way to provide closer services to customers, a new way to transform online services into detailed and tailored services for the public. By bridging the gap between customers and experts, Withings makes the services the experts provide more efficient and personal.”

“As a user of our own software products, I’ve imagined and longed for something like the Withings WiFi Body Scale for years,” says Donavon Guyot, CEO of Peaksware. “Now that the integration of our products is complete, I’m proud to say the result is literally a dream come true.”

The WiFi Body Scale is the world’s first WiFi connected personal weight scale, which automatically records the user’s body weight, lean & fat mass, and calculated body mass index (BMI) to his/her secure webpage and/or free Withings iPhone application, WiScale, plus a host of other third party sites.

The scale is currently available on www.withings.com for $159.00 USD or 129 €. For more information on Withings or to get more images of the WiFi Body Scale please contact PR representative Jean-François Kitten or Jessica Darrican for USA at (305) 576-1171 ext.16 or jessica@maxborgesagency.com

About

So if you have read any of the blog thus far you know a little bit about me… I can not be told what to do and I push myself about as far as I can be pushed!

But how did I get here and why? Well, that is what this page is about.

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
