Withings is a brand many of us know to deliver excellent fitness and health tracking and monitoring features. It continues to come up with products that don’t only look good but also offer top-notch performance.
The latest to be added to the smartwatch lineup is the Withings ScanWatch Horizon. It looks like a luxury divers watch, but it’s really just a fitness watch. The wearable device is a health hybrid smartwatch that’s been inspired by luxury diver watches.
The connected health category is here to stay, and Withings will remain part of the revolution. The watch is now available in the United States with a $499 price tag. For a health and fitness-focused watch, the price is a little bit high, but it does look like a luxury watch. However, it is one stylish and elegant-looking timepiece that you can wear for a long time. Watch aficionados who value their health can consider this one from Withings if they want to start their fitness journey.
The Withings Scanwatch Horizon features the usual health tracking features: ECG and monitor heart rate, blood oxygen levels, breathing disturbances, physical activity, and sleep. In addition, the watch can be used underwater should you wish to use it while swimming or diving.
The Withings smartwatch comes in a luxurious sapphire-glass casing. The cover has an anti-reflection coating, while the rotating bezel is set in stainless steel. Like a real diver’s watch, its bezel has laser-engraved markings to show standard codes of diving practice. The watch also features Luminova hollow watch hands, indicators, and indices. This means you can use the watch even in low-light conditions.
A rubberized wristband can replace the ScanWatch Horizon’s stainless-steel band if you want a more sporty look and feel. In addition, the watch’s battery life can last up to 30 days on a single full charge. It also offers 10 ATM water resistance so that you can wear it for water sports, snorkeling, and swimming.
The watch works with a connected Health Mate app. It has the standard tech and fitness features, including ECG-tracking while underwater. That is not impossible because the watch has been clinically-validated. Its mirror-polished serrated bezel works as an electrode, so tracking and recording can be done with speed and convenience. Under normal circumstances, the 30-second ECG recording works. Results are then shown on the screen and checked in the compatible app. You can view there an in-depth diagnostic report of your health.
