Digifit™, Withings and Zeo® are proud to announce their “health triad” partnership as well as the availability of the latest Digifit™ Healthcare and Fitness app for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Digifit is the first app ever to integrate with the Withings Wifi Scale and the Zeo Personal Sleep Coach™ giving consumers a high-level, comprehensive view of their health data on one easy to use Dashboard for Healthy LivingSM. Users who wish to get into the details about their weight and sleep can see them conveniently within the Digifit dashboard or launch Withings’ WiScale app and Zeo’s myZeo app from within the Digifit Ecosystem. Digifit is only available in the US App Store today, but there are plans to launch in Europe in early 2011 and worldwide soon thereafter.
Because it is widely known that proper diet and exercise are the mainstays for a healthy lifestyle, weight monitoring and tracking caloric burn with a heart rate monitor are popular health management tools. Only recently has it become convenient to measure and monitor your sleep quality and quantity, so the third piece of the health monitoring puzzle is rapidly gaining in popularity. By including sleep data, fitness enthusiasts now have a way to accurately measure recovery (Deep Sleep & REM sleep) which is key to optimizing physical training.
Digifit™ is the only Healthcare and Fitness app for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad that integrates heart rate monitoring for tracking cardio fitness. With Location Services, the free Digifit app tracks your workouts outdoors and with an easy “in app” upgrade you can enable advanced functionality. With the upgrade, Digifit™ effectively integrates your running watch, bike computer and heart rate monitor into one comprehensive fitness tracking app. The Digifit™Connect accessory is a wireless transceiver that enables Digifit to communicate with more than 80 ANT+ fitness sensors including heart rate monitors and foot pod stride sensors by popular brands such as Garmin and Adidas.

“Withings and Zeo are leading edge pioneers in the industry and we are thrilled to partner with them. With the latest upgrade, our Digifit app completes the health triad puzzle by ‘automagically’ tracking the three most important influences on one’s health: exercise, weight and sleep. We do indeed have it All Together NowSM,” said Michael Williams, Digifit’s Founder.
The Withings WiFi Body Scale is the world’s first WiFi connected personal weight scale, which automatically records the user’s body weight, lean & fat mass, and calculated body mass index (BMI) to his/her secure free Withings iPhone application, WiScale and other third party sites. A user can even choose to share their weight with their Twitter followers or Facebook friends for added motivation. Now, with this new partnership a user’s weight is automatically uploaded and added to thier Digifit dashboard. Keeping track of your weight is extremely helpful in managing the effectiveness of your fitness, diet and sleep routines. For more info on the scale, click [here].

With this data, the Zeo Personal Sleep Coach will help identify the cause and effect factors behind their sleep patterns and reveal what they can do to feel more refreshed in the morning.
