Parents can now accurately monitor their child’s growth with new Withings app.

Withings has introduced a new app that allows parents to accurately monitor the growth of their children.

By connecting to the Internet, the Smart Kid Scale app is designed to help parents introduce their children to a long-term healthy lifestyle at a young age. 

The app works by allowing parents to record and keep track of their child’s height, weight and other important areas of their development, such as how often babies and young infants are being fed. They can then monitor this information and see how their children’s data compares to others of similar age and gender via the app’s in-built Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.

Cédric Hutchings, co-founder of Withings, said: “With the Smart Kid Scale, we’re hoping to bring the same positive outcomes we’ve seen in adults with weigh tracking to the adults of the future.  We’ve made it very simple for parents to track the weight progress of their children and therefore giving them a tool that will assist in turning their children into healthy adults.”
