Apple is once again directly selling Nokia products through its online store, and they should be available in its physical retail locations soon too. That’s not an error – we’re obviously not talking about smartphones here, even though more and more Nokia-branded Android handsets are starting to appear. Apple would definitely never offer those, but it is eager to sell you a Nokia connected health device or two.
These products, ranging from scales to thermometers to blood pressure monitors, were formerly Withings-branded. Nokia bought Withings last year and has since renamed all of those accessories, using its own brand.
So the Nokia Body Cardio and Body+ scales are up for grabs from Apple, as are the Thermo and BPM+ (the former a thermometer, the latter a blood pressure monitor). Apple had been selling the original Withings products, but then some patent lawsuits filed by Nokia against it prompted a halt of those sales. A legal settlement regarding those lawsuits was reached between the two companies in May, and this cleared the way for Nokia connected health devices to be available in Apple stores.
