Withings made a smartwatch you might actually want to wear


Although the watch—designed in Paris and made in Switzerland—resembles its analog ancestors, it contains all the technology of a fitness tracker. It monitors distance covered (walking, running, or swimming), calories burned, and quantity and quality of sleep, all of which will sync with Withing’s existing Health Mate app. The watch, called Activité, can also tell time. It will automatically adjust to changing time zones, and its battery will last a year.

The watch will be available for $390 this autumn, in two unisex color options.

It certainly is a nice looking watch. Not my “personal style” but simple and elegant looking – which I’m not.
