Withings, maker of the world’s first WiFi connected personal scale, is announcing its integration with the Google Health service. The Withings WiFi Body Scale can provide updates to your Google Health profile wirelessly in real-time using its built-in WiFi connection.
Google Health, launched last year, is a personal health record that allows you to store, organize, and manage health information all in one place. It organizes your health information and allows you to share that information with family members, caregivers and doctors. Now, the scale will automatically update your weight and fat mass to your Google Health profile.
“It’s exciting to be one of the early hardware devices to integrate with the Google Health service,” said Cedric Hutchings, Withings General Manager. “Keeping your doctors and caregivers informed on all aspects of your health is important in maintaining a consistent health plan, so being part of Google Health’s effort to make this possible is thrilling.”
The WiFi Body Scale is a unique product that automatically records your body weight, lean & fat mass, and calculated body mass index (BMI) to a secure webpage and free Withings iPhone application, WiScale. Also, the scale can automatically “Tweet” information in order to get motivation from your followers.
