At Nokia’s event in Mobile World Congress, the company’s Vice President of Digital Health and former Withings CEO Cédric Hutchings announced that Withings products will be rebranded under Nokia by this summer. This includes its smartwatches, fitness wearables, connected scales, thermometers, and more.
Alongside the name change, Hutchings also said the company will release a redesign of its Health Mate later this year to bring “improved user experience,” such as ways to more easily share fitness progress with peers. Nokia will also launch a new Patient Care program to share data between patients and health professionals, a la Apple’s HealthKit.
Withings was acquired by Nokia in June 2016 for $191 million.
