The word Smartwatch is widely associated to big colorful screens attached to large wrist bands, full inter-connectivity with smartphones, tablets and everything else around, notifications, calls, SMS, social media, Bluetooth and so on…
Well, Withings, the health smart devices company behind the Pulse Fitness Gadget and the Blood Pressure Monitor we featured earlier, has a different take on how a Smartwatch should look an work. Their latest health gadget, the Withing Activite, is designed to look like a classic analog watch. But don’t be fooled by its classy looks! The Activite packs a lot of technology and sensors in its fancy body! The Activite can measure distance you run, walk or swim, can analyses sleep quality and count calories burned during the day. While the sensors which track and analyze the information are located in the wristwatch, the information reading, report analysis and sensors setup is done via the Withings Health Mate app available for PC, iPad and iPhone.
The Withings Activite smartwatch is designed in Paris and manufactured in Switzerland (that’s what explains its cool looks!!!), is equipped with morning alarm, automatic time zone switcher (so you no longer have to set time when traveling around the world) and is powered by a battery which lasts for 1 full year of usage! Available as of August 2014.
