Nokia introduces new connected health products following Withings takeover

Nokia Digital Health Products

According to research cited by Withings - sorry, Nokia Digital Health - 'three out of four Europeans are expected to die prematurely from a chronic disease related to lifestyle, circumstance or habit such as heart disease yet 90 percent of cardiovascular diseases are preventable'. The Body Cardio scale is still available under the new Nokia branding.

"Completing the transition of products from the Withings brand, Nokia trackers, scales, vital health devices and home products will now be available in-store and online through top retailers", the company said in a statement. Nokia had acquired Withings back in April 2016 for a massive $192 million.

In many ways it's business as usual, with numerous products that we've raved about from Withings over the last few years moving across, including the Activitie Fitness Watch range (though they lose the Activitie name), forehead thermometer, an improved blood pressure monitor and an upgraded BMI Wifi Connected Scale.

Then there's the health app which ties this all together - Nokia Health Mate.

This new scale is the most affordable and will cost you only $59.99 (or 50 pounds), which is way less the money you'd have to shell out to buy a high-end Nokia scale.

"Nokia design is human-centric, simplifying operation and creating products that fit seamlessly into people's daily life to improve the health of the individual and wellbeing of society as a whole". Users can access the Weight Trend Screen to visualize progress during each weigh-in, and the BMI Insights service gives access to data analysis and BMI trends over time.

The Nokia BPM+ is the blood pressure monitor, featuring a soft cuff design to make it more comfortable and portable than earlier Withings blood pressure monitors. Nokia Body is available now for £55.

Key features include enhanced navigation for content discovery, new eight-week wellness programmes endorsed by medical professionals to help users reach their specific health goals and tools to visualise goal progress. These are Sleep Smarter, Better Body, Pregnancy Tracker, Healthier Heart, and Leaderboard. The app is available for free for Android and iOS users both. Nokia also confirmed that the rebranded and new health products are coming soon to retailers like CVS, Target, Babies'R'Us, and Apple.
