Withings’ Activité and Activité Pop used to only work with iOS devices, but now the company has finally introduced an Android version of its Health Mate app. As such, the company’s smart, fitness-tracking watches will now sync easily with Android smartphones.
Withings’ Health Mate app connects with either the Activité or Activité Pop via Bluetooth Low Energy. Once the watch syncs with the app, you can view your sleep metrics, activity, and set a vibrating alarm. The Health Mate app will show you your activity and sleeping patterns over time in handy graphs, too. The app will even track your weight, heart rate, and more if you enter the data, or happen to own Withings’ smart scale, sleeping system, and heart rate monitor as well.
When they first arrived on the market, the Withings’ Activité and Activité Pop were widely regarded as two of the most beautiful fitness-trackers around. Both feature a traditional wrist watch look. The original Activité is much more premium with its Swiss-made branding, real leather strap, polished stainless steel case, and sapphire watch face. However, it’s major downfall is its high $450 price.
Meanwhile, the Actvité Pop has all the same features, but it’s made with less high-end materials. The best part about the Pop is its low, $150 price tag. Now, both iOS and Android users can flock to Withings for attractive fitness trackers that look deceptively like high-end wristwatches.
