Withings BPM to Healthvault RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been trying to figure out how to export data from a Withings Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor to Healthvault. There doesn't seem to be a direct method. Exporting via a CSV file seems to be the only alternative. This works, however, to preserve date/time data requires a bit of massaging of the data in the CSV file.

    The CSV file needs to look like this:

    PSEUDO,DATE,HOUR,SYSTOL,DIASTOL,PULSE,COMMENT
    DAV,7/24/2015,5:58 AM,134,70,53,
    DAV,7/22/2015,6:50 PM,134,74,61,

    Date must be in format: ""m/d/yyyy""
    Time must be in format: ""h:mm AM/PM""

    On my setup, being in Australia, dates from the Withings device are in "d/m/yyyy" format. Also, the time from the Withings device is in "hh:mm:ss" format which won't import.

    It is easily fixed in Excel. Open the CSV in Excel, highlight the data to change and use custom formats as above and save the file in CSV again to preserve the formatted data. Then, at the Measurements - Blood Pressure  page, use "Import from spreadsheet" into Healthvault. You will have to tell it which fields to map to. Works for me.
