Health Mate, the companion app to Withings’ set of connected devices, has just received a pretty big update.
First and foremost, the app now takes a leaf from Google’s Material design playbook. Excerpts from the blog post detailing the update:
Weâ€™ve managed to pop the sweeter side of health right into your phone with bright colors and a new design interface! The menus are tutti frutti, the sliding effects are sweeter â€“ and itâ€™s all calorie free!
Enjoy this new design! You can even browse it sideways!
Every step counts
We know that thereâ€™s a link between activity levels and weight management. Instead of counting steps in your head, let Health Mate do it for you! Your smartphone can now count your steps for you if you donâ€™t have a Withings Pulse or if you forgot it at home: simply turn on the step counting and enjoy the ride!
Youâ€™ll be able to check your activity level on the fly, and browse through your step count history. For the first time, you will be able to see how your steps are adding up, and make decisions based on this information. Will you reach the recommended 10,000 steps a day? How many badges will you unlock? Will you be first in your Leaderboard after youâ€™ve challenged your friends? We canâ€™t wait to see how the new update helps you and hear your feedback!
The Timeline is like a new home. As soon as the app launches, you can scroll through a history of all your data. The Timeline also works as a coach providing insights, badges and weekly recaps. The Timeline is constantly updating with new content to enrich your experience and to help you improve your health. Whatâ€™s not to love?
The app remains free on the Play Store.
