Tiny Withings Smart Activity Tracker Debuts at CES 2013

Withings announced at the CES 2013 its newest health monitoring device, Smart Activity Tracker, a powerful and pocket-sized personal tracking tool designed to help users achieve their personal health and fitness goals.  For the first time ever seen on an activity tracker, the Smart Activity Tracker adds pulse measurement to the number of steps taken, strides run, distances covered, calories burned, and quality of sleep.  The device syncs via Bluetooth Smart with the Withings Health Mate App where all the data is collected and stored in real time.      

Cédric Hutchings, CEO and co-founder of Withings says: “Understanding how to analyse your fitness is the first step to improving it! The amount of technology that we’ve packed into this tiny sized and easy to use new-generation personal trainer will take us further into a new dimension of connected health and wellbeing where device, user and services are closely and permanently linked”.

The new Withings Smart Activity Tracker is tiny, but packed with features. No larger than a small memory stick, Smart Activity Tracker is designed to be unobtrusive. It can be inserted into a pocket or used with the included belt clip and/or arm band. The front of the device features a fully functioning touch surface that will allow users to navigate from screen to screen and the back houses the heart rate sensor where users simply place their finger to take their readings. The device has a two week battery life and has an on-board micro USB port for recharging.    

Smart Activity Monitor tracks not only the number of steps taken in a day, but differentiates moderate from vigorous activity.  The device also calculates the number of stairs climbed and calories burned depending on the users’ body composition.  The duration of sleep, plus the quality of that sleep is also calculated when the device is worn during sleep.  By adding heart rate to the tracker, users can paint a larger picture of their total health by monitoring their resting heart rates and heart rates after physical activity.      

The Withings Health Mate app collects all the information provided by the Smart Activity Tracker via Bluetooth and categorizes it into 3 different health categories-Activity, Heart and Sleep.  This data can be easily shared with a physician, dietitian, sports coach, support group or social media network.
