The Withings Activité Steel gives a different spin to the concept of smartwatches

Withings Activité Steel

French fitness accessories manufacturer #Withings has just unveiled the #ActivitéSteel #smartwatch which features an analog watch face and no touchscreen functionality. However, the wearable can manage to track your fitness data like steps, calories burnt and even swimming.

Data can be synced with your smartphone using the Health Mate app that is available on major app hubs. Just to make it clear, the Activité Steel isn’t capable of showing phone related notifications, so by definition it is merely an analog wrist watch with some level of “smart” inside.

The wearable has been priced at $169.95 and will be available for purchase across major Withings retail locations of the world. The company is known for its fitness accessories and devices, so the release of a device such as this doesn’t really come as a surprise to us.

Do you think the lack of proper notifications support will dent the chances of the Activité Steel in the market? Let us know.
