These days techies like us are enjoying the myriad of choices available in the market for smart wearables. We have smartwatches, fitness trackers, connected watches, and hybrid models. As of now, Apple, Samsung, and a few other sport-oriented brands are the go-to options for consumers. If you fancy a conventional-looking timepiece with smart functions and fitness-tracking capabilities, the Withings Steel HR Sport could be the device that meets your expectations.
Its design might be immediately familiar for some people who followed Nokia’s resurrection as a brand. During its journey to reestablish the marque, it acquired Withings and produced several hybrid watches along the way. Now, that the latter is back on its own two feet, it went back to what it does best and produced the latest version of its popular hybrid wearable.
The hybrid watch arrives in a stainless steel case that houses both analog and digital components. The dial is available in black or white and features an LCD display on the 12 o’clock portion and another smaller dial on the 6 o’clock area. You can use it to monitor your heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, the number of steps you’ve taken, and more. It wirelessly pairs with your smartphone for notifications and GPS tracking. Withings claims that the Steel HR Sport can last up to 25 days on a single charge.
