Withings Activité Swiss-made Smartwatch
Hodinkee turns us to the Withings Activité, a Swiss-made smartwatch that features a clean, minimalistic design. In fact, at first glance, you wouldn’t even know it was a smartwatch. It’s got a classic mechanical look with a subdial between 4 and 5 o’clock that’s linked to a digital tracker and accelerometer. The watch connects to iOS devices via Bluetooth Low Energy so you can set preset targets and track overall progress on the Health Mate app. Your progress is then shown in percent complete on the subdial. The sapphire crystal integrates a vibration sensor so you can do things like tapping it twice to display a pre-set alarm time by moving the hands of the watch. Different sequences of taps will alternate between various functions of the watch. Head to Hodinkee for more details.
