    Hmmm...that would be interesting if they can add that functionality so it would be easier for us to track our steps.

    I just tried out my new Withings using Healthmate and am so disappointed U cannot manually add steps accrued today prior to arrival of this tracker.

    I agree it’s sucks to walk on the treadmill knowing I can’t track those steps in the app - other apps can do this it doesn’t seem like a hard thing to add in somewhere

    This is really an annoying issue and seems to be some over-protective reflex for their gadgets. You cannot even manually add activities in principle. Well, you can, but they have zero actual effect (not contributing to workout target and calories burnt are not considered) unless steps were recorded for that activity. It is really shabby. Even with the greedyness in mind, there are "legitimate" use cases:

    - import data from before owning a watch

    - forgot to wear my watch

    - only having the scales and sleep monitor from withings

    wanting to compete with people who have otehr gadets or none

     

    Main commercial argument for allowing the adding of steps wihtout tool: not being able to import existing steps data will deter new customers from switching to Withings gadgets!
