Withings Activité, the high-end watch with smart fitness hiding inside

Smartwatches
[MUSIC] Looking for a fitness tracker with a little bit of style? Maybe that's so invisible that it just looks like a watch? I'm Scott Stein, and hey, I'm goin' out at night. I look at my wrist, and what's this? It's a high-end watch. Actually, this is the fitness tracker. This is the Withings Activité. And it looks like a regular analog watch. That's the whole point. This is a Swiss design watch. Which the French company Withings explains to great length on their website. It has a sapphire crystal on top. French calves leather strap. Stainless steel. And it's water resistant to five A.T.M. like a regular watch. And it's got a battery that lasts about eight months to a year. But inside, it's actually got high tech guts. This has got bluetooth, it also vibrates to wake you up, it tracks your steps, it tracks your sleep, and it syncs with your iPhone. Android is coming soon. And the Withings app, which has already been available for some time, works with a variety of other Withings fitness trackers plus Smart Scale, plus Blood Pressure Monitor and a couple of other apps like Run Keeper and My Fitness Pal. So under the hood, it's pretty high tech. At least as high tech as your recent generation of FitBits or Jawbones. Or misfits. It doesn't have heart rate tracking however, that stuff's a little half baked anyhow. The design of it again, this looks like a regular watch and the only indication that it's not is a secondary dial which tells you your daily activity progress and that goes by your daily step goal, 10,000 steps or whatever you set it to. And then if you want to set an alarm it will buzz gently to wake you up. You can double check that. By double tapping and it will go right to your alarm time. That's the only nifty trick it's got up it's sleeve. The rest of it is really meant to not stand out and if you want to go swimming with this there is going to be a firmware update to allow swim tracking and it comes with a silicon band that you can easily snap on and off. Is this something you want to get? Well consider that it's $450 yes, more expensive than the entry level Apple watch. And it's in limited supply. However, it might set the bar for slightly smarter watches down the road. Expect this to be a trend with major watch manufacturers who start sneaking in some features like fitness tracking into regular watches. I'm Scott Stein and this is the Withings Activité, which my mom said was the nicest looking activity tracker. That I've worn all year. [MUSIC] [NOISE]
