Weight loss specialist Weight Watchers has just announced in a press release thathe could now retrieve the information recorded by the Jawbone UP24 and Fitbit Flex bracelets in order to improve the monitoring of its customers. The approach makes sense since nutrition and physical activity are two key points to follow your line.
Nutrition + physical activity in a single app
Until now, the Weight Watchers application has mainly been focused on the food side with a huge database of more than 200,000 foods available. Suffice to say that the Jawbone application and its nutrition section looks pale next to it… However, Weight Watchers did not facilitate the recording of data related to the physical activity of the user, which is however an essential point in the loss weight (you had to calculate its activity and then enter it manually or buy a compatible pedometer from Philips and called ActiveLink).
By now retrieving data from the two smart health connected straps, Weight Watchers allows users to be able to follow their weight evolution much more precisely. Automatically, WW will retrieve data from mobile applications and convert it into PointPlus, The measure created by the manufacturer. However, this does not go in the opposite direction since it will not be possible to retrieve WW nutrition data on your Fitbit / Jawbone application …
The update can be done today and it is compatible with iOS and Android devices.
