The Health Mate app helps you stay motivated by bringing a social dimension to meeting and exceeding your activity goals. You can add your friends and family to your leaderboard and compete with them to be the one who walks the most every week. It doesn’t matter if they have a Withings product or not: you can add anyone as long as they have the Health Mate app on their smartphone, thanks to the in-app tracking feature that can track steps using their smartphone hardware.
This feature is only available to the main user of the account.
Enabling the Leaderboard
To enable the Leaderboard, please tap the star icon on the bottom bar of the app. Leaderboard is a Wellness Program that you can activate from here.
Adding someone to your Leaderboard
You can invite people to join your leaderboard. To do so, perform the following steps:
- In the Health Mate app, go to Wellness Programs (the star icon in the bottom bar), then Leaderboard (in the Ongoing Programs section).
- Tap Invite, on the top right corner.
- Select how you want to send your invitation. Several options are available, such as message, email or social media websites.
Interacting with someone in your Leaderboard
Once you have friends in your leaderboard, you can interact with them by tapping
their name and selecting one of the three actions available:
- Cheer to encourage them,
- Flaunt to show off,
- Message to chat with them.
Adding a social component to your activity tracking is a great way to stay motivated
and push your limits.
