    Hello @anders,


    Thanks for posting and for your idea of a chest strap for heart rate, ECG and SpO2. We’re not planning to develop such a device for now but I’ve forwarded your request to our development team.


    Regarding the heart rate on your ScanWatch, I’m sorry to hear that your pulse is not always being recorded smoothly. Please know that we are currently working on improving our algorithms so our customers can have an even better experience with their ScanWatches. 


    Additionally, if you haven’t read it already, you can check this article from our Help Center on how to properly get your heart rate recorded with ScanWatch. Please note that we do not recommend wearing a milanese or metal wristband while working out. These types of wristbands could be too loose and prevent your watch from properly measuring your pulse. Instead, we advise using the silicone wristband packaged with the ScanWatch.


    Have a great day,


    Armelle, Withings Customer Service

    What about integrating a HR strap directly to app? It was the actuall question. Other vendors support it. Can be used with cycling or cardio training or other. You do not have to develop any device than.

    Any plans for implementing this? It would be great to get readings from a Polar or Garmin strap. The wrist measurements from the watch are highly inaccurate for even moderate activity.
