Manage your weight -
Smart Body Analyzer
Why it's important: If you are overweight or obese, losing weight can reduce your risk of health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes - NHS
Looking to lose weight or maintain your current shape? These internet-connected scales wirelessly sync with your smartphone so you can see how your weight is changing in real time.
Work out whether you're a healthy weight for your height with the body mass index (BMI) tracker, and what % of your body weight is fat.
The scale works for the whole family too, with the ability to create 8 individual profiles.
How it works with the app: Once you weigh yourself the data is automatically sent to the app. You can plot it in a graph to view how your weight changes over time. Have your target weight broken down into weekly targets.
Get more exercise - Pulse 02 activity tracker
Why it's important: Whether walking briskly or jogging
around the park, everyday exercise is important. The NHS has
guidelines outlining how much exercise you should
Seeing the positive results of your exercise can give you the motivation to keep going - particularly in winter.
Wear the Withings Pulse 02 to see how many steps you have taken, how much distance you have covered and how many calories you have burned.
The small, stylish device can be worn like a watch in a wristband, or slipped into your pocket. It has a tiny screen for displaying key information.

Improve your sleep - Aura Smart Sleep System
Why it's important: Poor sleep over a sustained period can lead to problems including fatigue, sleepiness, poor concentration,
lapses in memory, and irritability - Sleep Matters
The Withings Aura Smart Sleep System monitors and rates the quality of your sleep as well as working to actually improve it.
Sleep is broken down into different stages. To have good quality sleep you need to spend enough time in each of these stages - light, deep and REM. The Aura can help you understand how long you are spending in these stages.
It comes in 2 parts - a sleep sensor that sits beneath your mattress, and a lamp that sits on your bedside.
The lamp uses light and sound to help you fall asleep and wake more naturally - at the right time for your body clock. The sensor records how your movements, breathing and heart rate affect your quality of sleep.
How it works with the app: data is sent to the app while you're sleeping. Time spent in deep sleep, how long you slept, how many times you woke up are plotted onto easy-to-read graphs.
Monitor your blood pressure - Arm blood pressure monitor
Why is it important? Consistently high blood pressure (140/90) can increase your risk of developing heart problems - NHS
Blood pressure is something usually checked by a doctor or a nurse.
But with the Withings arm blood pressure monitor you can take a reading from the comfort of the sofa.
The device is wireless so there are no trailing wires or cables to worry about. The monitor meets European medical device regulations.
How it works with the app: When you take your blood pressure the results are instantly sent to the app. Your latest readings are plotted alongside past ones in a chart to give you an idea of your blood pressure over time. You will be given instant feedback on your blood pressure levels.
