    Hello, 

    With regard to the weight goal, at this time it cannot be deleted or disabled. However, I would be more than happy to forward your feedback to our developers for future development plans.

    However, if you sync the Withings app with myfitnesspal, you will be able to set and change weight targets and weight loss targets. Check it out, It's rather good and it's free!

    In previous versions of apps the target weight goal was a single key visible on plot, where visually we could estimate how far the target weight is. In resent version of app there is a healthy weight zone shadowed on plot, then I do not want to place target weight on healthy weight zone. For me it is the same healthy weight, but it must be an option for those who wants to see specific target weight.

    I am healthy weight but the app keeps telling me how well I am doing when lose weight. That feels really unhealthy! Not everyone wants to lose weight! If I am comfortable with my weight and it is in the healthy range. I should be able to remove the weight goal but all I can do is change it and either get congratulated when I lose weight or gain weight. I don't want to do either. Pleased add in the ability to remove the weight goal!

    +1 for deleting the weight goal. I am pregnant and having the app comment on my weight is super annoying. I just want to monitor weight without the commentary.

    +1 you must be able to delete goals. For some people weight goals only promotes unhealthy thinking. If I only want to be able to track my weight and body composition that should be possible.

    Just as another use case for deleting a goal. I'm now pregnant! I it's important i continue to monitor my weight, but having a goal is not important any more!

    How has this not been resolved 1 year later. I've just bought my scales and they're just not as good as other brands I've used. Think I'm going to return them as I can't see any development to keep me here

    Agree with all the comments above! The weight goal can perpetuate unhealthy dieting behavious and is unhelpful for those recovering from disordered eating. For some people, achieving a healthy lifestyle is about NOT focusing on weight. Withings, please update the app so that the weight goal can be removed!

    Please add this feature. Not being able to remove goals is really annoying.

    Like someone suggested above, please add options to disable weight goal and instead add body fat/muscle goals

    Highlighting this, I was seriously unwell with covid, lost a dangerous amount of weight (15% body mass), and I'm now putting some of that weight back on but because my BMI is now above 25 (because I'm broad and muscly), the app is telling me I should loose weight and I'm seriously thinking about uninstalling it. Literally added 15cm to my height in settings so it doesn't complain.

    Having a scale which measures your body fat without offering a specific goal to that value is difficult to understand;

     

    + I want to remove my weight goal as well

    +1 Weight lifting means I'm focused on muscle % as my goal. My weight could fluctuate 10lbs and I'm not too concerned about that. I'd love to set a goal that is a goal for me.

    I don't think withings have any customer service or feedback loop. Even if their goal system is potentially a health risk to some people

    I would like to remove the weight goal and also any and all mention of BMI. Seems like these are required for the app and can't be turned off. I like my scale and watch, but not this feature of the app. I might just hide the app and let it collect data to feed to another app that isn't so toxic.
