Default What is the difference between WW etools and WW online?

I'm unsure if I'm going to join Weight watchers but a meeting is coming to my work so I thought I'd investigate. I noticed the website has a free trial for WW online for a week so I decided to try it this week. It seems pretty cool so far.

My question is I read that if you go to meetings, you get access to e-tools. Is that the same as everything you'd get with WW online? What is the difference?

Does anyone know?

Hi Nellie,

ETools is basically used to help a WW member between meetings. With that, you get helpful tools to use, such as personalized charts, recipes, food tracker, fitness demos, and such.

WW online is similar, in that you get tools to use, but there are no face-to-face meetings. You track everything online at your convenience.

Hope this helps, and that you decide to go with WW!

You only get etools if you buy a monthly pass for meetings.You get unlimited meetings per month and etools.Around 39 bucks which is a really good deal.

It's pretty much the same thing, except for meetings.

With regular WW, if you do the monthly pass (instead of paying each week separately), you get to use the online Etools as part of the membership (as well as being able to go to meetings).

With WW Online, it's basically just using the Etools & the website.

The website's features are referred to as Etools.

The at work sessions do not offer etools as part of the program but you can purchase etools separate if you wish. I did do that for a few months before we were able to do monthly pass in our area. I like etools

I think I decided not to do the at work meetings. I'm not sure if I want to do meetings and it is actually more expensive at work for some reason. Since I like the online stuff, I may try that out for a while. It also looks like there are 2 weight watcher centers near me (I didn't even know weight watchers had centers) so I can always try meetings if I change my mind later.

This is not entirely true. Many regions don't offer monthly pass but offer the e-tools. My region is this way. I pay $12.95 a month for e-tools plus my $12 a week meeting fees.

Yep, what Kelly S says. We didn't have monthly pass and I paid for etools. I think that's what I meant to post. But our franchise was bought by national so we now have monthly pass and I love it
