This free application is designed to be the ultimate health and wellness application that enables anybody to store, access and manage their weight, physical activity, heart and sleep data on a single user-friendly dashboard.
The Withings application acts as a user's personal health companion and becomes the hub for data collected from a range of internet connected devices or manually by the user. That data is then aggregated onto a simple and easy to use dashboard. The Withings Health & Wellness Cloud makes the app compatible with the Withings WiFi Body Scale, Withings Smart Blood Pressure Monitor, BodyMedia FIT armbands, Zeo Personal Sleep Coach and Runkeeper It also allows Withings users to seamlessly export their weight data to other 60 fitness friendly partner applications.

These colored 'wings' represent how well users are monitoring their health and also whether the data collected by the health tracking devices show that goals are being met. The wing colors grow and shrink based on the users' data and gives them a quick glance at their comprehensive health without worrying about numbers.
