CNET First Look
An e-ink fitness tracker, but not such a great watchThe Withings Go could have been a great little gadget, but it's not quite there yet. E-ink is a clever idea, though.
[MUSIC] [UNKNOWN] is a super simple Basic fitness tracker. It also has an E-Ink screen. That's it's coolest feature. It stays on all the time. For $80, the Go has both a band and a belt clip, lasts eight months on a battery, and can be used while swimming. But it doesn't do much. Automatic steps, sleep tracking, and swim strokes. It feels like a budget version of the fancier analog Withings Activite Pop. An always on [UNKNOWN] screen is a great idea, but you have to press the go to see the clock. More watch faces, please, or at least one that shows daily steps and time at once. And a slightly lower price would be nice, and I'd be a lot more interested. [MUSIC]
