There are many fitness trackers that aim to look the part of being rugged and able to withstand the harsh environments, but that’s not the case with the Withings Activité. For the record, it looks just like an ordinary wristwatch. Even though it does look very inconspicuous for an activity tracker, it is among the best that performs pretty well for what it can do. It is able to track steps, runs, and even sleeps. If you want to add a little luxury in your gym-time, or when you’re out-and-about on your runs around town, then why not take a look at this particular tracker.
The Withings Activité is the Culmination of Old and New
For what you have to pay to get the Withings Activité, it has to look good, and it does. It is available on the market in either white with a brown leather strap and blue accents, or a with a dominating black color with a black leather strap and orange accents. This watch is more fashion item than fitness tracker in terms of looks.
However, looks alone do not explain why the Activité costs more than your average fitness tracker (in fact, it costs twice as much as the Withings Activité Pop). It all boils down to the materials used in the creation of this particular wearable. It is made out of stainless steel, and the packaging comes with two extra straps at the ready. There is one strap that is made out of leather (for when you just want to stroll about town), and a gym-friendly one which is made out of rubber. There is also an extra battery thrown into the standard packaging.
Herein lies a bit of a downside as it does not come with a rechargeable battery. However, Withings claims that the battery can last up to 8-months before needing to be replaced.
What makes this device so attractive is because of its simplicity. You wouldn’t dream that it can track your activities as it looks like it can do nothing more than just tell you the time. It is not a full-blown smartwatch, however, but it is a smarter watch.
But when it does come to activity tracking, this wearable tech performs without problems. It can accurately record daily steps with great consistency. It does struggle a bit when it comes to mixed activities, but this is not unusual especially with this type of tracker. Sleep tracking also works decently, but users do provide the guess work when it comes to discerning between deep and light sleep.
Overall, the Withings Activité is a stylish and outstanding smarter watch that can track activities. It is a more luxurious way to track fitness, unless you don’t mind the price attached to it.
