Video: Introducing the new Wellness Diary beta (Nokia Beta Labs) Demoed on the Nokia N8

Lose weight, eat smart, exercise more or change our habits for better balance? Erm, yes please.

Wellness diary makes it easy to set goals, monitor progress and if you wish share achievements with others.

I had a seminar at Uni on Monday on the exact same thing (principles of being Med Students/Doctors). It was really useful to know about setting clear, specific goals with a set deadline instead of woolly, vague ones that have an endless due date that in combination makes it more prone to that task/goal being ignored.

A diary you might not always have with you but a phone most likely.

“Monitoring progress is easy with automatic functions and reminders, and you can see your progress instantly via graphs. In the near future you can also share it with your friends via social networks”.

Get professional coaching

If you’d like coaching or expert advice, or feedback on your progress, we are happy to tell you that you’ll be able to use Wellness Diary with a variety of professional third party services in the near future. These will be wellness services like general health coaching, smoking cessation, personal training, or nutritionist support. We are currently in discussions with several partners.

In this Beta phase we’re already offering one third party Wellness service, Duodecim Electronic Health Examination and Coaching. To start using it, just click on star.duodecim.fi and fill in the your health status to get started. Duodecim’s service is also in a testing phase and is offered as a Beta service.

If your company is interested in mobilizing your existing wellness related on-line service, please contact us via e-mail at wellnessdiary.marketing@nokia.com for more information.

    The application is nice and the design is looking good(except for the symbian bottom blue bar) but I think this type of applications need to be done by third party developers not by nokia. Nokia should focus more on the basic applications like browser,music player and also improving the OS.

      Agreed, for me Beta Labs should develop the cutting edge things. They should have made HDR photography a year ago for example.
      Or they should be busy with improving the photo browser, they have an alternative version right now. But it doesn’t look as if they do something with it.
      Same goes for Nokia Bots, those are the things they should be making. Not these ‘apps’ that should be made by 3rd parties.

        They did do a HDR app a while back, albeit for the N900.

        The “old” beta labs photo browser works perfectly with the N8, and definitely has a “wow” factor – you should try it.

        They’ve obviously got a lot of developers, but you don’t necessarily speed up the development time on a project by throwing more developers at the problem (ie. the browser).

        The music player isn’t really lacking that much other than the custom EQ and artist only views.

          I knew about the HDR, but that should have been here a year ago. 😉

          The photogallery is nice, have it on an N97 but is as slow as a snail on a salt trail. 😛
          But the concept is great, looks good, works well but needs minor tweaks to be implemented into regular FW’s.

            Strange … the photo gallery (beta labs version) ran well on the 5230, and is scarily slick (ie. fast) on the N8.

            But yes, it could do with a few tweeks and then be in the standard build.

    All the beta labs apps must be the best among its competitors, otherwise it is waste of resources
