Withings SAS Key Developments

Withings Announces Launch and Availability of Withings Smart Products at CES 2017

Withings has announced the launch and availability of several new smart products at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show, or CES. Withings will power the new Kerastase Hair Coach, the world's first smart hairbrush offering consumers a data-driven way to take better care of their hair. Withings is also announcing the launch of Home Plus, an upgrade to its home monitoring system and one of the first security cameras compatible with Apple HomeKit, and the global availability of Steel HR, the first analog activity-tracking watch with heart rate monitoring. Developed in collaboration with L'Oreal's Technology Incubator, the brush features Withings' advanced sensors and seamless product design along with L'Oreal's patent-pending signal analysis algorithms to measure the quality of hair and the effects of different hair care routines. An accompanying mobile app provides additional insights and modifications to how the hair is brushed that can help avoid hair damage and improve hair care routine. Retailing for under $200, the brush will be available mid-2017 at Kerastase hair salons and the brand's website, and through Withings' online sales and distribution channels. The brush is a recipient of this year's International CES Innovation Award, which celebrates outstanding product design and engineering in new consumer technology products. Withings Home Plus is the latest version of the award winning Home product, a smart HD camera that offers live streaming to your smartphone, tablet, Apple watch or Apple TV. Home Plus is a beautifully designed HD camera and one of the first security cameras compatible with Apple HomeKit. Home Plus can be used to keep an eye on your home, send notifications in case of unusual noise or movement, monitor indoor pollution or watch your baby with advanced baby monitoring features. It works with the free Withings Home app (iOS & Android) and Apple Home app on iOS. Withings Home Plus boasts the same sleek design and seamless video streaming to your smartphone, but now includes extended capabilities due to Apple HomeKit support. Withings Home Plus is the perfect start to your smart home automation offering multiple sensors and the ability to create scenes within Apple HomeKit. Withings Home Plus will be available for $199 in first quarter 2017. Withings Steel HR, a connected health watch with fully-featured activity tracking, heart rate monitoring and smartphone notifications, will be globally available January 4 through Withings.com and retail stores - including Best Buy. Steel HR balances a fitness tracker and classic timepiece, allowing users to get the most up-to-date health tracking information without compromising on style. In addition, the watch now features new tracking capabilities with automatic activity recognition for up to 10 new activities. Supported activities in this update include tennis, ping pong, squash, badminton, weightlifting, basketball, soccer, volleyball, dance, and boxing. Plus, over 30 activities can be logged manually. When Steel HR detects a new activity, it asks the user what it was. The tracker will then learn the user's previously unrecognized activities and be able to automatically detect supported activities. Boasting a 25-day battery life, the longest of any heart rate tracker, Steel HR is the first and only analog-style watch that offers heart rate monitoring. Steel HR can automatically measure continuous heart rate during workouts, average heart rate during the day, and resting heart rate while sleeping, while also offering a dynamic digital screen that displays your overall health data and smartphone notifications. Steel HR will be available in two sizes: 36mm, which will retail for $179.95 and 40mm, which will retail for $199.95.

Withings Launches Hy-Result, an Advanced Advisory Service for the Better Control of High Blood Pressure

Withings has launched Hy-Result, a sophisticated advisory algorithm that helps people interpret and assess personalized interventions that can aid in the better management of high blood pressure. Developed by a team of hypertension specialists from Hospital Georges Pompidou in Paris, Hy-Result intelligently analyses blood pressure data from in-home monitors such as the Withings Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor and provides users with personalized assessments of their cardiovascular health based on a person's medical data, lifestyle factors and physical statistics, in addition to identifying strategies for preventative measures to heart health risks and better management of high blood pressure. Akin to a virtual medical specialist and priced at $4.99, it is the first in-app premium service to be launched within the Withings Health Mate application. Created by an international scientific committee composed of high blood pressure experts under the leadership of Dr. Postel-Vinay. Hy-Result combines the professional advisory protocols laid down by the European Society of Hypertension (ESH) with scientific data on the management of blood pressure. Ahead of its adoption by Withings, Hy-Result has been validated in a head-to-head clinical trial, comparing its recommendations with that of hypertension specialists. In a study published in November 2015 in the peer reviewed Blood Pressure Monitoring Journal2, it was found that Hy-Result software delivered the same advice as specialist physicians 95.4% of the time, making it at least as accurate as that of a specialist in current practice. While not intended as a replacement to professional consultations with cardiologists and general practitioners, the study does validate Hy-Result as a trusted tool to be used by patients and their caregivers between doctor visits.

Withings Introduces Go, a New Activity and Sleep Tracker Enabled by the Latest E Ink Segmented Circular Display Products

Withings announced Go, a fashionable activity and sleep tracker. Go is enabled by E Ink Holdings’, “E Ink” (8069.TW), latest developments in the segmented line of flexible, rugged and non-rectangular shaped displays. The launch of Go at CES 2016 follows on from the numerous awards Withings products received during CES 2015. Withings Go automatically recognizes a variety of daily activities, which allows the user to wear it all day and track everything without having to push a button. For walking and running, the device analyzes number of steps, distance covered, calories burned as well as the duration of the running session. Go is also water-resistant (5 ATM) and automatically recognizes when the user starts swimming. At night, Go analyzes and can distinguish between light and deep sleep cycles. Withings Go connects to the free Withings Health Mate iOS and Android application that acts as a personal coach to track and motivate users to achieve their own activity goals. The main E Ink display of Go shows the user’s level of activity as a dial depicting the percentage of progress achieved toward a specific day’s activity goal. It will also transform to display the time, creating an analog watch face. No charging required, as it can operate continuously for up to 8 months. The latest developments in E Ink display components are clearly focused to support wearable applications that demand, light, rugged and flexible displays requiring very little power to operate. The 1.1” circular segmented displays build upon the same energy sipping technology that E Ink is known for and extends it to support product designs requiring a non-rectangular display. The displays can be segmented or full active matrix. Development kits for product designers are also available. Withings Go and E Ink’s unique display technologies can be seen during CES at both the E Ink and the Withings booths. E Ink can be found in South Hall 3 of the Las Vegas Convention Center at booth number 30466.
