Withings probably isn’t the first name you think of when talking about fitness trackers, but perhaps you should give the French wearable maker another look when choosing your next activity tracker. Following the company’s two previous fitness devices, the Activité and Activité Pop, Withings has just announced a new wearable that marries luxury and everyday style.
In terms of functionality, the new Activité Steel is quite similar to its predecessors. It will track your steps, runs, swims and calories, and it will even analyze your sleep patterns. The device can connect to your Android or iOS device through Withings’ Health Mate app. It’s water-resistant up to 50 meters, which is definitely a plus for those who like to take their wearables swimming with them. There’s also no need to charge the device, as it runs on a standard watch battery and, according to Withings, will last up to 8 months on a single charge.
For many, choosing between a smartwatch and a fitness tracker is a difficult decision, and it looks like Withings brought the best of both worlds to the table with the Activité Steel. It’s available now in Black from Withings’ website for just $169.95. While not the most feature-rich device on the market, compared to other fitness trackers, this seems like a pretty great deal.
