Withings launches new midrange fitness-tracking smartwatch

Withings is releasing a new midrange fitness-tracking smartwatch called the Activité Steel.

The watch has two hand dials, one showing the time and another showing the percentage of daily activity goal achieved. The activity goal (e.g. 10,000 steps) is set within the free Withings Health Mate application.

It has a stainless steel case, chrome hands, silicone straps and a tachymeter-inspired sub-dial.withings-activite-smartwatch-fitnes

The wearable is capable of tracking walking, running, swimming, sleep and more. The smartwatch, which looks like an average wristwatch, connects to a user’s smartphone via Bluetooth 4.0, and is compatible with the iPhone 4S and above and all Android devices with Bluetooth Low Energy.

The watch it’s powered by a standard battery which can last for up to eight months – so the device does not require recharging. It is water-resistant up to 50 meters.


“While the tracker market is booming we see growing demand from health conscious people who are not willing to compromise their style,” says Cédric Hutchings, CEO of Withings. “Steel is the perfect Christmas gift for those demanding trendsetters.”

The watch is available online for $169.95.
