A letter from Eric Carreel
June 1st, 2018
To our community,
Two years ago, Withings—the pioneering connected health company I co-founded in 2008 with Cédric Hutchings—joined Nokia. Since this time, the digital health business has made significant progress, releasing new products and applications.
Today, I am pleased to announce that I have purchased Nokia’s connected health business.
My ambition is to continue to expand on my original mission: to help people take care of their health via cutting-edge connected objects and services that integrate simply and elegantly into their lives. We know that by providing easy and enjoyable access to unique health indicators, and helping people understand how they can take action, we can help to prevent certain chronic diseases and improve health worldwide.
Since its inception, Withings has been synonymous with award-winning innovation and design. To build on this tradition of quality, I will prepare the return of the Withings brand by the end of the year—a goal that is at the heart of a strategy focused on innovation that aims to surprise, delight, and above all, help our users achieve optimal health and wellness.
To help with this mission, I am pleased to report that I will be working with the same multidisciplinary team that I had the honor to co-build—the same team that has been at your service since the launch of the world’s first connected scale.
Finally, I want to thank you for being on this journey with us. I assure you, whether you have been with us for one day or throughout the years, your digital health products and services will continue to be supported.
Stay tuned — we look forward to sharing these innovations with you.
Eric CarreelPresident and co-founder of Withings
