Withings Acquires 8FIT

Posted by FitTrack Australia on

French tech firm Withings has recently announced their acquisition of popular health and fitness app, “8FIT.” The deal is a gamechanger for Withings, who center on creating smart health devices that help consumers achieve their long-term health goals. 

CEO of Withings, Matheiu Letombe, stated that the move enters Withings into “the era of the ‘product-service-data,’ combining personal health data with personalised wellness plans,” to “further deliver on our mission to empower anyone to be healthier in the long-run.”

Withings - Advanced Smart Health Technology Accessible to Everyone

Withings is one of the world’s leading health-tech giants - responsible for bringing non invasive, easy-to-use smart health technology into the everyday home. With more than 10 years experience in the field, Withings invents, designs and manufactures a range of award winning, clinically validated smart health devices and associated apps. Since its beginning in 2008, Withings has grown its smart health scope from the world’s first connected scale, to the largest connected health ecosystem in the market today.

Withings product range now includes 8Fit

Their products range from blood pressure monitors, to sleep monitors, smart scales, thermometers and smartwatches, their latest and most advanced being the Clinically Validated ScanWatch. Withings build devices that capture a wide range of health parameters - including Blood pressure, heart rate and sleeping patterns, and claim they can help anyone master their long term health goals.

Withings Purchases 8FIT and Impeto Medical

8FIT is the second recent acquisition for Withings, who also gained Impeto Medical - a French medical device company responsible for designing a method to detect peripheral neuropathies. This technology has already been incorporated into Withings’ new BodyScan (Segmental Body Composition & ECG Scale), a scale that goes beyond weight management, promising to identify poor nerve function and give users in-app access to specialized clinical support.

Following in the steps of other leading brands, Withings have taken on the ‘device-and-recurring-revenue model,’ offering a subscription service to unlock the full abilities of their devices. It’s likely that 8FIT’s features will be integrated into Withings’ own Health Mate app over time, for a cost. Withings is planning to allocate $30 million over the next three years to continue developing its ability to offer customized, tailored support for customers wanting to get healthier and achieve their fitness goals.

Watch band great, perfect for withings watch. Customer service outstanding with clear communication and excellent follow up. Thankyou

Thank you very much for taking time to review the Genuine Leather watchbands for Withings. Thank you also for the feedback on FitTrack Australia's customer service and communication.

Accurate & Reliable

Had admission to hospital with exacerbated COPD during the past week. I measured my oxygen sats on my new oximeter ( purchased one week prior to admission)and the measurements were precisely the same as the measurements taken by the nurses using the hospital oximeter every time. My phone recorded the measurements and I was able to show the doctors /nurses the trends with comments, recording details of what I was doing at the time of each reading. That is not an option while using the hospital equipment. They rely on manual entries which are sometimes overlooked, not entered or inaccurate.

Thank you so much for the time you've taken to provide a very meaningful review of the iHealth AIR Pulse Oximeter. It is great to hear how practical and useful the ability to sync readings to the iHealth MyVitals app on the phone and have a record over time as opposed to manually recorded spot readings. It is no surprise that the measurements were in line with the hospital's pulse oximeter readings, as the iHealth AIR is clinically validated (independently tested) and is deemed a medical grade pulse oximeter. We really appreciate the excellent review, and we hope that you are feeling better now!

Very Impressed

This is a great and easy to use Fingertip Pulse Oximeter. It's casing is strong and it comes with a good carry pouch and cord. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Thank you for taking the time to give that great review on the Jumper Medical JPD-500D fingertip pulse oximeter. It certainly punches above its weight in terms of build quality, reliability and accuracy.

Just Great

I'm very impressed with the Jumper JPD-HA300 Compact Blood Pressure Monitor, it works just great!!!

Thank you very much for taking the time to review the Jumper JPD-HA300 Blood Pressure Monitor. It's a high quality and yet affordable BPM, that punches above its weight!


I have found this Oximeter easy to use and it seems to perform well so far. I have only had it for a couple of weeks. I am hoping it will help friends and family who are at risk of severe COVID and I hope it will continue to perform well for a long time.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review the iHealth AIR Wireless Fingertip Pulse Oximeter. As a medical grade TGA approved pulse oximeter you can have peace of mind that it is a high quality blood oxygen saturation monitor as is trusted by doctors and medical professionals throughout Australia.
