Just got an email from Withings that their smartwatch / smart scales range are now available in NZ via Noel Leeming (Here) - pretty tempted on the Withings HR + Withings Body Cardio. Pricing looks to be quite similar to importing from the US directly but you then get the bonus of local support (not that I've had any problems with my Activite Steel).

 

Anyone else also using Withings products?

Yup, I'm still using my Steel. I love it just for the convenience and looks, to the point where I barely bother with my fitbit surge any more.  The one thing I really really miss when running (and just out and about) though is not the GPS or pace timers or HR or anything like that... it's the ability to control my music - all I need is the ability to pause and skip forward. Such a pity the Steel HR doesn't have this.

I picked up one of the Body scales about a month ago (from NL). They had to order it in, but it only took 2-3 days until I could collect it from the store, so I'm guessing it was a local distributor (as freitasm mentioned above).

 

Absolutely love the product, its integration with iOS (and HealthKit more specifically) is faultless. The graphs and everything that the Withings app produces are fantastic too.

I would like to see Withings and Fitbit data together. I have been using a Fitbit Alta HR the last few weeks for test. I use the Fitbit Surge for bike rides because of built-in GPS but I'd rather use my Activité for weekdays...

Alas the data is locked to each platform and nowhere really shows both together with the same networking features.

It should all come together in the built-in Health App on iOS. My Withings scales, Apple Watch and MyFitnessPal all send their info to & from the Health app so I get a total overview of everything, no manual input required (other than inputting meals into MFP).
