Withings Introduces New Activity Recognition Feature

Withings keeps making improvement to its health platform. While users could manually log over 30 different activities, they can now rely on their tracker to learn their moves. Once you teach your tracker how you move, it will recognize it in the future. These trackers can tennis, ping pong, squash, badminton, weights, basketball, soccer, volleyball, dance, and boxing.

Here is how to teach your tracker new moves:

  • Perform any of the 10 newly supported activities while wearing your activity tracker. You will then see “New activity detected” on your timeline.
  • Save the session, choose which activity it was, and adjust the intensity. It will now appear in your timeline.
  • Repeat this process 2-3 times for each activity. This helps your tracker learn your specific moves, so it can automatically recognize them the next time around and detect the activity without you having to lift a finger!
