How to get the app

The Monitor Your Weight app enables the user to set weight goals and monitor the weight of 1 or many people. The app suggests an ideal weight and recommends the amount of time needed to reach that target. You have the option to change the suggested targets based on your own goals. It also has a function to calculate BMI (Body Mass Index), percentage body fat, total weight loss, remaining amount of weight to be lost, average daily and weekly weight loss and overall progress.

Additional features include adding notes to weight entry, and the ability to export data and integrate with Fitbit Aria, Garmin, WiT and Google Fit. There is the option to create multiple profiles and personalise measures (metric or imperial). A purchased add-on allows for synchronisation of data onto the server so data is not lost.

Comment: Monitor Your Weight enables the user to set weight goals and monitor weight of one or many people. The app suggests an ideal weight and recommends the amount of time needed to reach that target. Although simple the app has a long set up and is not intuitive for users. Includes some unique features like being able to have multiple profiles on one account. Recording and monitoring changes in weight can be useful for users wanting to lose, gain or maintain weight. The ability to have multiple profiles on one account may be of use for individuals who do not have access to the app or wish to be accountable to a personal trainer or within a group setting. Although simple the app has a long set up and is not intuitive for users.
Safety concernsAccuracy of measurements dependent on accuracy of users weight scales.

: Dietitian App Review Working Group, Auckland DHB
Date of review: July 2015.
Comment: A very simple app that logs and tracks weight loss/gain. Assess energy requirements needed to achieve target weight in a pre-defined period of time. Both target weight and time frame to achieve it can be set manually. There are no alerts even when setting weight goals that result in a very low BMI eg 14kg/m2 prompting some concern.
Safety concerns: Some risk, as there are alerts when setting low target weight.  
New Zealand relevance: Allows users to individualize measurement settings. There is provision for measurements of weight and height to be set to metric units such as cm and kg, which are used in New Zealand.
