Updating the firmware

  1. Make sure your Withings Move is close to your smartphone.
  2. Tap on the Withings' Health Mate app.
  3. Select the Devices tab at the bottom of the Health Mate app.

Firmware is typically released to fix bugs or push out new hardware features. These files are separate from the Health Mate software updates that arrive via the App Store or Google Play.

Select your watch

At launch, the Withings Move watch is available in five color combinations, including black/yellow, white/blue, white/coral, black/green, and white/green. This number will increase over the coming months. Additionally, you'll also soon be able to customize your Withings Move to match your tastes. In doing so, you'll be able to pick the colors for the dial, case, activity hand, and wristband via the Withings online store.
