Withings’ lastest ScanWatch is a health wearable in a league of its own. Surpassing its predecessors, the smartwatch has been equipped with a built-in ECG to help detect atrial fibrillation and sleep apnea. The ScanWatch monitors the wearer’s heart rate and notifies them if an irregular heartbeat is detected. If an irregular heartbeat is indeed detected, you can take an ECG reading, via the three built-in electrodes placed on the watch’s bezel. The final results are available in the Health Mate app. You can even forward the results to your doctor in a PDF format!
Another great upgrade is that the watch uses a SpO2 sensor to monitor for sleep apnea, providing you with daily reports, and alerting you of any apneic episodes. The ScanWatch features the aesthetics of a classic timepiece. A dual-subdial face has been equipped with a PMOLED display, that showcases updates and notifications. The crown allows you to switch between trackers on the screen, so there’s no need for a touch screen. The lack of a touch screen leads to longer battery life, allowing the watch to last up to 30 days!
The ScanWatch comes in two models, a 38mm and a 42mm version. Winner of three CES Innovation Awards categories in 2020, the ScanWatch is considered to be a hybrid watch, because though it functions as a smart health wearable, it maintains a timeless analog look, providing you with the best of both worlds.
