WITHINGS STEEL HR

I have reviewed several other Withings products in the past and the Steel HR watch was when my most anticipated products for awhile.  I was truly ready for this piece of technology and style all-in-one. This watch has a style that I’ve never seen in the smartwatches, it automatically tracks over 10 different activities in your life. Heart rate is monitors whether you’re running or in the full workout mode and is embedded in the face of the watch not to take away from its sleek professional look. The watch is very reasonably priced and comes in 2 sizes 36 mm at $179 and 40 mm $199 which is very comparable to all the other health trackers on the market. Steel is water resistant up to 50 meters whether you’re in the pool, showering over the torrential downpour while running to the office. Upgraded from the previous Steel has both heart rate and personalized smartphone notifications which was a huge upgrade to the Withings watch product. Via Bluetooth you are connected to receive text messages, calls and any other events on your calendar to keep you on target. It’s quite impressive that the watch has 25 days of battery life. Health Mate App automatically synchronizes with the watch to give you analysis of your daily activity, sleep or workout progress. The Withings Steel HR is a superior fitness and activity tracker with excellent heart rate and text alerts that is available for a very affordable price.
