Digifit™ Announces Blood Pressure Integration and New Health & Fitness Facebook Application at CES

In Time for New Year's Resolutions, Digifit™ Announces Integration With Withings Blood Pressure Monitor and New Facebook Application for Sharing Health and Fitness Progress

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - January 6, 2011) - On the heels of Withings' introduction of an iPhone, iPod touch and iPad compatible blood pressure monitor at CES, Digifit™ announced that it has integrated Withings' blood pressure monitoring into its dashboard for healthy living(SM). And, to help users motivate one another to get and stay fit, the Digifit Facebook Application launched today -- the first and only Facebook application to automatically track fitness and health data without requiring manual input.

"We are thrilled to see that Digifit has immediately integrated our new blood pressure monitor within its larger dashboard for healthy living," said Cédric Hutchings, Withings co-founder. "Our goal has always been to take the drama out of using devices that can promote healthier lifestyles. Our Withings body scales have already achieved this, and we are now expanding our success with the blood pressure monitor. In partnership with Digifit, we look forward to making fitness and health monitoring even simpler with the help of wireless technology."

Digifit's new Facebook Application enables people to automatically track and share their fitness and health progress through their favorite social network, and ultimately, improve their diet, exercise and sleep habits. The Digifit Facebook Application automatically updates a user's Facebook status with their personal fitness and health information such as caloric burn during exercise, weight, blood pressure and sleep score. The fitness data is tracked real-time in the user's Digifit™ app on their iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. The new Facebook application is yet another way to share with people or groups who care about each other's fitness and health goals.

"I've heard it said that 'obesity is contagious.' Well, fitness can also be contagious and we are hoping to accelerate spreading that 'good virus' with the introduction of the Digifit™ Facebook application," said Michael Williams, Digifit founder and CEO. "Mark Zuckerberg is TIME's 2010 Person of the Year because Facebook is transforming how we live our lives and Digifit wants to channel that in 2011 to help people get fit and stay healthy. Friends and groups can now motivate one another to meet their fitness and health goals, stick to their New Year's resolutions and hold each other accountable."

Facebook and Digifit users can access the Digifit Facebook application at: here

Digifit's Facebook application pulls fitness and health data from Digifit's servers and allows access to the information directly on a user's Facebook homepage. Simply click on the Digifit Application and you are presented with Digifit's Dashboard for Healthy Living(SM). Friends can then comment on their fitness updates or compare workouts with them. With the recent integration of Withings and Zeo, one can also automatically share their weight, blood pressure and sleep scores.

With Location Services, the free Digifit app tracks your workouts outdoors and with an easy "in app" upgrade you can enable advanced functionality. With the upgrade, Digifit™ effectively integrates running watch, bike computer and heart rate monitor functionality into one comprehensive fitness tracking app. The Digifit™Connect accessory is a wireless transceiver that enables Digifit to communicate with more than 80 ANT+ fitness sensors including heart rate monitors and foot pod stride sensors by popular brands such as Garmin and Adidas.
