This paper discusses the problem of fostering lifestyle changes towards healthier habits via tailored user guidance. We present a novel multisensory device, the Wize Mirror, which will be able to detect semeiotic face signs related to cardio-metabolic risk, and encourage users to reduce their risk by improving their lifestyle. Offering a proper user guidance requires solving three main issues: user profiling, definition of a wellness index based on biophysical data, and personalized guidance by means of coaching and supportive messages. For each of these issues, the solutions proposed in the EU FP7 Project SEMEOTICONS are presented, highlighting their advantages with respect to the state-of-the-art.
