Withings Activité is an Activity Tracker Disguised as a Swiss Watch

The technology of fitness trackers is something we could really do within our lives. The additional wrist luggage, however, not so much. Now someone has combined that technology with the simplicity and size of a watch, it makes so much sense that we can’t believe it hasn’t already been done. Fitted with a classic round face and a traditional analog watch display, the watch looks relatively unassuming. However, the Activité is fitted with two dials. The primary one tells the time, whilst the secondary sub-dial keeps track of your activity targets. It’s available in either black or silver, made out of stainless steel 316L and an “unbreakable” sapphire glass screen which also functions as a touchscreen.

The fitness tracker is able to monitor your steps, calories burned, distance traveled plus sleep patterns all via internal sensors. It can even wake you up using a vibrating alarm. It transmits the information to iOS devices using Bluetooth, where you can use the Withings Health Mate app to track your progress. The Withings Activité will retail this fall for $390 USD.
