Withings Activité activity trackers are beautiful, but limited


Don't be fooled its the lower price tag: There's nothing the premium Activité can do that the less expensive Pop can't. There aren't any high-end materials here, but the end result is a wearable that looks great, tracks steps with ease and won't make...

Beautiful design and materials ; Step counter works well ; Easy-to-understand user interface

Hefty price tag ; Companion app lacks polish ; Limited functionality

I love the Activité, but man is it a hard sell sometimes. If we take a moment to zoom out, it's exactly the sort of wearable I think people -- regular people -- would embrace. It's simple -- elegant, even. You can set it up through your phone and, in...

Withings Activite Steel


If you want an elegant, waterproof timepiece that tracks very basic fitness stats, the Withings Activite Steel could be your watch. But runners and more serious athletes will want something more robust.

Tracks calories, runs, sleep, swims, and walks. Sleek, classic design. Lightweight. Long battery life.

Unreliable activity switching and inaccurate sleep readings in testing. Watch face lacks detailed fitness information. No health or workout guidance.

Conclusions The Withings Activité Steel, like its predecessors, is more like a traditional watch with some fitness tracking capabilities thrown in than the other way around. Whether it works for you depends on what you want out of a fitness tracker. If...

Withings Activité Steel review: This stylish $170 watch is an undercover fitness tracker


Analog watch meets activity tracker in this fashionable, affordable addition to the Withings Activité lineup.

Affordably stylish ; Great app that gathers activity, sleep patterns, and calorie logs in one central place

Band isn’t the highest quality ; May be too small for some wrists

The Withings Activité Steel is a sleek fitness tracker masquerading as an analog watch, but could use more band options.

Withings Activité Steel review


The Activité Steel is a great looking watch, but how does it stack up against other fitness trackers out there? Find out in our full Withings Activité Steel review!

Amazing battery life ; Beautiful design ; Comfortable to wear all day ; Affordable price ; Waterproof

One size may not fit all ; Companion app isn't very intuitive ; Limited in functionality

If you hate the look of fitness trackers and want to keep an eye on your daily activity, you should definitely check out the Withings Activité Steel. It's accurate, elegant and inexpensive, which are three key things many other wearables can't say for...

Withings Activité Steel Review


With their Activité line of fitness trackers, Withings has taken a very different sort of approach toward wrist-worn wearables. Rather than rely on LCD or e paper displays, Withings has instead built regular, stylish analog watches first, adding light...

Withings Activité Steel Review


If you want a fitness tracker that doesn't look like a fitness tracker, the Withings Activité Steel is your best bet. Although it costs just $179, it looks like a much more expensive timepiece, and still does a good job of monitoring your daily steps,...

Attractive ; Automatic sleep tracking ; Long battery life

No heart rate tracking

If you want a fitness tracker that looks like a real watch and you don't need heart rate tracking, the Withings Activité Steel is the one to get.

Withings Activité Steel review: This stylish $170 watch is an undercover fitness tracker


Some fitness bands look like chunky rubber bracelets with tiny screens that flash numbers at you. They're purely utilitarian. On the other end of the spectrum, there are activity trackers masked as pieces of jewelry. They don't track much beyond your...

The Activité Steel is a solid, stylish smartwatch that is less expensive than other, less fashionable fitness trackers.

Withings Activité Steel unveiled with stainless steel design


Withings impressed us earlier this year with the Activité, a classy wristwatch with fitness tracking capabilities but an intimidating $450 price tag. It wasn't long before the company returned with the significantly cheaper $150 Activité Pop. Now it's...

You can order the Withings Activité Steel now. The first 300 orders ship on November 17. After that you’ll have to wait another week until the 25th.

Withings Activite Steel HR review: Nokia has its finger on the pulse


The Withings Nokia Activite Steel HR is a beautifully designed device that does a great job of delivering style and smarts in a one package. For those

Beautiful ; Solid design ; Looks like a standard watch ; Good heart rate tracking ; Waterproof for swim tracking ; Great app platform ; Excellent battery life

Quite expensive for activity tracker ; No GPS or connected GPS ; Charger ridiculously fiddly ; Inconsistent step tracking ; On-demand heart rate not always perfect

The Withings Nokia Activité Steel HR is a beautifully designed device that does a great job of delivering style and smarts in a one package. It offers a classic design with premium materials and it's certainly an activity tracker that steps away from...

Withings Activite Steel review: Step-tracking with style


Withings is no stranger to beautiful design. Its original Activité fitness tracker was one of the most wearable wearables of 2015 , which is probably why the cheaper Activité Pop and newer mid-level Activité Steel both adopt a similar design. The...

Great design, good Health Mate app, step-tracking and distance accurate, colour options for strap, premium build, great for the price

No heart-rate sensor, no altimeter, automatic exercise detection doesn't always work, face a little fussier than previous models

The Activité Steel is another beautiful and well-made activity tracker from Withings. For the £180 saving compared to the original Activité , you do have to make a couple of compromises - but that's to be expected. There's no sapphire glass, no leather...
