Way back during CES 2011 we talked about an interesting health gadget from Withings that let your iPhone take your blood pressure. The catch was that the device needed a cable to be connected between the iPhone and the blood pressure cuff.
Withings has been selling digital fitness devices and a scale for adults that can track your weight or even share it via social networks if you want it to. The idea is that the scale can help motivate you to reach your goals and share your progress with friends.
I’ve known for the last couple of years that my home scale is a bit off, so I wonder if an expensive digital scale will do better. The idea of a smartphone-connected scale isn’t something new, but Withings new scale looks pretty spiffy and it’s supported by plenty of apps to help you keep track of your weight.
When my son was an infant, my wife and I didn’t get much sleep for the first few months. We missed sleep not because he cried anymore than a normal baby, but because the doctor went crazy one day and mentioned sudden infant death syndrome in front of my wife.
The gang over at Withings is all about using tech and gadgets to help people stay fit and healthy. These folks have that scale that interfaces with the iPhone, tracks your weight, and will tweet your weight if you want it to.
