Stylish Smartwatch, The Withings Steel HR
Withings Steel HR: global availability of world’s first analog activity tracking watch, now integrates new automatic recognition for 10 additional activities
Withings Steel HR, a connected health watch with fully-featured activity tracking, heart rate monitoring and smartphone notifications, will be globally available from January 4th 2017 through Withings.com and retail stores.
Steel HR balances a fitness tracker and classic timepiece, allowing users to get the most up-to-date health tracking information without compromising on style. In addition, the watch now features new tracking capabilities with automatic activity recognition for up to 10 new activities. Supported activities in this update include tennis, ping pong, squash, badminton, weightlifting, basketball, soccer, volleyball, dance, and boxing. Plus, over 30 activities can be logged manually. When Steel HR detects a new activity, it asks the user what it was. The tracker will then learn the user’s previously unrecognized activities and be able to automatically detect supported activities.
Boasting a 25-day battery life, the longest of any heart rate tracker, Steel HR is the first and only analog-style watch that offers heart rate monitoring. Steel HR can automatically measure continuous heart rate during workouts, average heart rate during the day, and resting heart rate while sleeping, while also offering a dynamic digital screen that displays your overall health data and smartphone notifications.
Steel HR will be available in two sizes: 36mm, which will retail for USD179.95 and 40mm, which will retail for USD199.95. Surprise, surprise, did you know that ‘Withings’ is part of the Nokia group?
