By Ramzi Haidamus, President Nokia Technologies
Today is a day to celebrate! Over the years, many of you have shared with us your love for Nokia. We’ve heard so many great stories about the coolest Nokia device you ever owned — something that helped define your life, make it better, more fun, and more connected to the people and things that matter to you most. Your continued enthusiasm is just one of the reasons we’re thrilled to announce some very big news today.
We’re now starting a new chapter as a company, this one focused on connecting you to better health through technology. We aim to help you lead a happier, healthier life through the kind of beautifully designed products that you expect from Nokia.
To help us do this as fast as possible, we will be welcoming Withings into the Nokia family. A leader in digital health products and apps designed to improve everyday well-being and long term health, Withings will combine perfectly with Nokia’s heritage of mobility and connectivity.
Withings products (www.withings.com) already help people manage every aspect of their health and lead a more balanced life. Their products allow you to measure how your lifestyle is affecting your wellness — how well you’re sleeping, how many calories you’re burning, how many steps you’re taking — and go beyond the numbers to give you information that matters. They help you understand how your body responds to activity and changes — the impact your activity is having on your body temperature, your weight, your blood pressure and your heart. And they do it with such a beautiful design that you love to wear them anywhere — at work, at home, or even at the opera.
Please stay tuned for more news about this new chapter for Nokia. We're thrilled to be welcoming the Withings team to Nokia Technologies and help spread the word about all the awesome products they're building. Together, we'll take digital health products beyond counting and tracking to help people everywhere connect to healthier and happier lives.
