MFP only takes one scale reading / day. Withing scale records readings for date and time.

Option 1: Have MFP take readings for date/time not just date and take in all readings

Option 2: Have the ability to control which value MFP takes from the Withings scale

A. Take the most recent value for the day (current behavior)
B. Take the lowest value for the day
C. Take the first reading for the day

In MFP, since there is only 1 reading / day, I want the most consistent date/time recorded; that being the first of the day. However, I'm curious to learn how my weight changes during the day, so I'm looking at getting multiple readings. I will track/graph that through Withings or other web sites.

Thanks.

disconnected withings from MFP. If you are going to weigh-in with the Withings scale more than once / day (say every morning and night), this is pointless. Keeps posting (every morning) to my feed I've lost X lbs since last weigh in, when it is just the difference from the previous night's weigh-in.

I just got this for Christmas and tried out. I'm linked, also, but it doesn't show when/how it syncs. For instance, I just weighed twice and don't see the value synced with MFP. I agree with you, also, that it should sync multiple entries during the day (especially in the future when I want to track weight fluctuations with a pregnancy).

Go to w w w . t r e n d w e i g h t . c o m . You can link directly to your WiThings scale, and it will track trends for you. Check it out, I'm going to use it as soon as I get my scale!

Thank you for that tip. It works very nicely with my Withings scale.
