Withings Activité Pre-Order Puts A New Price On The Undercover Activity Tracker

French health and fitness device-maker Withings has opened the pre orders for its Activité watch/activity tracker and a special pre-order page had been publicized today to customers who registered interest in availability. However, the website can be accessed by everyone so you can head over now and have a look at what they have to offer if you are one of those who have an inkling for such things. However, every good looking thing comes with a cost and this is no different. In the US these watches are going to be available for $450 each.

The company has discussed a price tag of $390 back in June but we expect these things to keep changing and so it did. Keeping in mind this price bracket, Apple had decided to stick with a price tag of $350 for their iWatch while most of the Android Wear devices retail for around $200 in the US. However, this isn’t a direct competitor to any of these devices as it falls more along the lines of the classic analogue watches. It comes with a Swiss-made dial, Swiss-made sapphire and stainless steel case, calf leather strap and a quartz watch movement powered by a standard watch battery for over eight months of usage. The design of the caseback is such that it allows for easy user replacement of said battery, which you can pick up basically anywhere, so it’s actually more convenient int that regard than your average wristwatch.

Of course we have already judged that this $450 price tag isn’t meant for everyone but if we think in terms of what they have to offer, then it isn’t a completely wrong move. it is usual for the high end quartz watches to sell at this price and they don’t even have any embedded activity tracking functions, and Withings also includes Bluetooth LE connectivity to not only sync activity measurement data back to your iPhone but also automatically updates the time when you are travelling and switching time zones.

Withings' gadget can likewise consequently track running and swimming, and can be prompted to screen rest data. It incorporates a vibrating alert to tell you when you've met your objective, and it incorporates a silicone strap in the case for changing out when you go on runs. The spring bars will fit standard straps, however they don't oblige the utilization of fiddly spring bar instruments to change out. The 36.3 mm breadth face ought to likewise look great on both extensive and little wrists, and the dim and white shade alternatives for the face both look great, as does the domed sapphire gem.
