Withings puts a new face on the activity tracker and smart watch sectors by unveiling the Withings Activité, an elegant, Swiss-made timepiece that seamlessly fuses haute- couture design with intuitive, discrete technology.
Defining a new category of elegantly designed, fashion-focused accessories, the Activité is delighting both the fashion and technology community with its beauty and brains. First and foremost a high-end beautiful watch, the Activité is also a sophisticated activity tracker that monitors steps taken, calories burned, distance traveled and sleep patterns.
An evolution of centuries of French and Swiss watch making heritage, the Activité is a premium timepiece with a classic round face and traditional analogue display. It features two hand dials, one showing the time and a sub dial showing percentage progress against specific activity targets such as steps or sleep.
Available in black or silver, the Activité maintains its luxury feel with the use of premium materials. The watchcase is made of stainless steel 316L, with a crystal of unbreakable sapphire glass which includes touch screen capabilities to tap between modes.
A discrete built-in digital system initiatively detects every move when you walk, run or swim and calculates your daily activities, distance covered and calories burned. After an action packed day, Activité will also monitor sleep patterns including time to fall asleep and length of light and deep sleep, all before waking you up with its vibrating alarm clock function. Its smart sensors automatic detect and switch between active and sleep mode.
The Activité will be available from selected retail partners and on Withings.com in Fall 2014. It will come in black or silver and will retail at USD 390.
