2015 Weight Watchers acquires 5-Minute fitness app Hot5


Weight loss company Weight Watchers continues its recent acquisition spree with the purchase of Hot5, the app enabling customers to pay monthly and receive access to a wide range of short fitness videos they can use. Last spring, Weight Watchers also bought Wello, a service that connects customers with personal trainers online. The company followed that up with the acquisition of Weilos, which provides a platform for sharing images and weight loss success stories. The idea apparently is to increase the opportunity for success from Weight Watchers clients by integrating more exercise options into its system. Hot5’s two apps will continue to be available, and Weight Watchers is likely to push members to try it out through various marketing campaigns.



2015 Weight Watchers acquired weight loss selfie startup Weilos


Weight Watchers has acquired Weilos, which offers users a picture taking app to document weight loss through selfies. Weilos provides users a peer-to-peer network that connected people who were weight loss success stories to those who were just beginning their journey, or had tried to lose weight before without reaching their goals. In addition to posting photos of themselves within the app, users can also track nutrition and post questions to the Weilos community. The now defunct Weilos peer-to-peer coaching service cost $19, $39 or $59 per month depending on the coach. Last year, Weight Watchers also acquired another weight loss-focused digital health startup, called Wello, that connected people to professional trainers via two-way video messaging. Users could choose a trainer or discipline of their choice.



2014 Weight Watchers integrates with Jawbone and Fitbit trackers


Community weight-loosing service Weight Watchers announced that its app will now sync with activity trackers Jawbone and Fitbit so that users of the diet and food logging program can see how their fitness data correlates with their nutrition data. Weight Watchers helps people make better food decisions, and devices and apps monitor activity. Integrating them can equip people with an ideal combination of resources to achieve their goals. Though the app only integrates with Jawbone and Fitbit so far, the company said they plan to add integration with other popular fitness devices and apps soon.

A awesome application that operates awesome on my smartphone, in particular now that I have 4g. I would like to be able to update my blog with this since the site wont let me with my smartphone. Sometimes I feel there are too many steps to monitor. but otherwise awesome application.

Like it, I can keep monitor on my own smartphone 4 every single bite that goes into my mouth. The restaurant list is awesome too. I also like the quick add feature and the calculater. Sometimes when it doesn't sign in all what I do is exit and sign in again. It's my tracker on my smartphone. It makes it way simpler to stay on monitor with weight watchers. I read this review about having to reinstall it many times. I only installed it once and still working awesome.

There is no DB for monitoring meals other than restaurant listing. I tried installing three times. It's just not there as it I'm sure it is meant to be.

Every time I use my smartphone or iPad with wifi the application crashes. If I turn off the wifi and use the 3g solution it operates fine. I have sent emails about it and they go unanswered. Nice plan. Poor application support.
