Withings Activité e Activité Pop: gli orologi analogici ma smart, diventano compatibili con Android
Il panorama degli smartwatch è in piena espansione e ad oggi la scelta è già discreta, con dispositivi avanzati e ricchi di funzioni come quelli offerti, ad esempio, dalle piattaforme Android Wear o Apple iWatch. Ma la complessità e l'ingombro di questi smartwatch non fanno certamente per tutti e per questo Withings ha pensato a delle alternative un po' smart e un po' analogiche.
Activité e Activité Pop sono stati presentati al passato CES 2015 come orologi classici, che non rinunciano a funzioni avanzate come il monitoraggio dell'attività fisica.
Questi indossabili, che non rinunciano allo stile classico, sono adesso compatibili con tutti gli smartphone Android, ed in particolare con Google Fit, dove l'utente potrà tenere traccia dell'attività fisica e fruire delle altre funzioni come il cambio automatico dell'ora in base al fuso orario, la sveglia con vibrazione e il monitoraggio del sonno.
Entrambe i modelli sono impermeabili fino a 30 metri di profondità ed offrono autonomie di otto mesi con una semplice pila da orologio (intercambiabile).
Withings, the leader in the connected health revolution, has today announced that both
the Withings Activité and the Activité Pop are compatible with Android mobile platform.
The two analogue watches are innovating the space of wearable health trackers by making
the convergence of fashion and mobile technology accessible to everyone, including
Android users across the globe. Withings also reiterates its commitment to the Android
ecosystem by announcing compatibility with Google Fit, the new health hub by Google.
Activity trackers made for everyone
Activité and Activité Pop are at the crossroads between timekeeping and activity tracking,
they are fashionable accessories that bring a new face to smartwatches. By fitting into
anyone’s lifestyle, Activité and Activité Pop are the first watches that will address a global
audience, going beyond the tech‐savvy user. The introduction of the two analog watches at
CES 2015 has generated high expectations about their potential. Android compatibility
was then a priority for Withings; it is now available, one month after the European launch
of Activité Pop, and right on time for the US launch.
“Following on from the overwhelming reception that both the Activité and Activité Pop have
received on their elegance and design, we have listened to our dynamic Android community
and it seemed natural for us to quickly provide Android compatibility for each product,“ said
Cédric Hutchings, CEO of Withings.
Withings and Android, a long term relationship
Withings has always acknowledged the potential of the Android community, and was
committed to provide compatibility as soon as possible. Most devices of the ecosystem are
already Android compatible, such as the Smart Body Analyzer, Withings’ bestseller, and
the Smart Blood Pressure Monitor, now coming with Bluetooth connectivity. Withings
Aura and Home will also soon be compatible.
Moreover, Withings Health Mate app offers the same features for iOS and Android; the app
allows its users to track their steps on the largest range of iOS and Android smartphones.
Withings is also announcing compatibility with Google Fit, the new health hub by Google,
to enable its users to automatically upload their Health Mate data into Google fit
application. With its wide range of devices, Withings will be a key actor for Google Fit
users, sharing the following measures: ‐ Smart Body Analyzer: Weight
‐ Withings Pulse 0x: Steps, Heart Rate
‐ Withings Health Mate app: Steps
Activité and Activité Pop, revolutionising activity tracking
Apart from their design and dual compatibility, both Activité and Activité Pop include a set
of game‐changing features that make them truly wearable in the long run. Always up‐to‐
date, Activité’s hands move automatically when it crosses time zones or the clock changes.
There is no need to recharge it as a single standard watch battery powers it and lasts up to
eight months. Activité and Activité pop are both waterproof up to 30 meters and can be
worn during any type of activity. “The activity tracker category has a huge problem with abandonment, and so consumers
don’t really get to see the benefit of long-term data and the impact it can have on their
health,” said Cedric Hutchings. “The Activité and Activité Pop’s design, ease of use and now
Android compatibility combine for the most accessible activity tracker that we’ve ever seen.”
Activité is available to buy from Withings.com for a MSRP of €390.00
Activité Pop is available to buy from Withings.com for a MSRP of €149.95
