The Withings Activité is a premium watch, one that has the added bonus of being an activity and sleep tracker. If you think of it as a tracker first, however, you'll be sorely disappointed. But as a watch, it's classy and unassuming.

Beautiful and built to last, the Activité is best-looking smartwatch yet, but lacks Android compatibility.

Finally, a fitness tracker that doesn't look like a fitness tracker

from The Telegraph

So what, then, is the inevitable catch? Price. At £320, this is a far more considered purchase than a rubber fitness tracker for around a quarter of the cost. But if you have a fitness tracker and know you enjoy using it, but would crave a bit of discretion, then this could be for you. Alte... More

So what, then, is the inevitable catch? Price. At £320, this is a far more considered purchase than a rubber fitness tracker for around a quarter of the cost. But if you have a fitness tracker and know you enjoy using it, but would crave a bit of discretion, then this could be for you. Alternatively, there is a cheaper £120 version called the Activité Pop which lacks the high build quality and comes in brighter colours, slightly Swatch-esque colours.

It's simple, subtle and the perfect balance between form and function

The Withings Activité is a beautifully designed device that, without a shadow of a doubt, delivers on its promise of being a wearable that you'll actually want to wear. It looks fantastic and we have happily replaced our standard watch with it. But its Swiss-made stamp means it isn't cheap, at nearly £100 more than the expected starting price for the Apple Watch.

We could accept the price if it wasn't for a few issues that need ironing out. There's automatic running detection and sleep tracking accuracy glitches, the inability to change your daily step goal from 10,000, frustration at the percentage dial resetting once the day's goal is achieved, and the lack of Android support, among other foibles. It also offers less features than some of the competition.

But what really sells the Activité is just how good it looks. It's made from quality materials that exude a premium feel, the effort that went into designing this device being more than apparent. The Health Mate app is a true delight to use too - assuming you don't want to sync more than one Withings device - delivering all the detailed information you need.

If you're after a stylish activity tracker, the Withings Activité hits the nail firmly on the head. It's simple, subtle and the perfect balance between form and function.

If you're in the market for a high-end, waterproof watch with a leather band that's swappable, and a look that's elegant enough to wear to business meeting, you might like the Withings Activité. Maybe. But if you have any real interest in tracking your fitness, increasing your daily activity, logging your runs, doing heart-rate training, or anything more involved than simple step and sleep monitoring, you'll be much happier with a device that is a fitness tracker first and costs half or a third of the price.

A slightly smarter watch

If it’s a smartwatch, it’s the least capable smartwatch I’ve ever seen. What the Activité actually represents is the new table stakes for a watch, the new minimum for a device that looks like this and costs this much. Watches can already blare sound to wake you up in the morning, so why can’t they buzz quietly? Why can’t I swap bands before I get in the pool and have it track my splits? It’s all clearly possible, and I don’t think it’ll be long before those features are as commonplace as a sweeping second-hand. Rolex, Timex, and Bulgari have all already done the hard part: building a beautiful watch. So did Withings. And it proved that the other half, the technological half, doesn’t require sacrifice.

The Activité is a single, but smarter buy for tech that’s genuinely useful, and yet genuinely fashionable at the same time

That said, the Activité isn’t priced for the mass market: At $450, it’s comparable to very nice quartz wristwatches, rather than other fitness bands on the market. Most people won’t spend that much on a watch, however, and I expect they won’t be convinced to essentially quadruple the price of a Jawbone UP just to get a nice timepiece in the mix, either.

Ultimately, though, the Withings Activité is the only fitness tracker out there likely to grace the majority of owner wrists for more than a couple months at max. It’s the first wearable device that will actually appeal to watch fans, regardless of any previous claims to that effect, and that will help it find a niche audience willing to spend the price Withings is asking. Another way to think about is to consider that most wearables fans would probably accrue four or five different fitness devices in the next year anyway: The Activité is a single, but smarter buy for tech that’s genuinely useful, and yet genuinely fashionable at the same time.

The Activité is exactly what I want from a smartwatch. It looks fantastic and records movement and sleep without compromising on design or battery life. The app is free, simple to use and provides just the right amount of information - although a little more customisation and snappier syncing would be welcome.

I'd also like the option of setting alarms at different times on different days, while the lack of Android support is frustrating for now, but will apparently be added soon.

At £320, it's more expensive than other smartwatches, and will be about on par with the entry level Apple Watch when that arrives early next year.

It may not have the household name of Apple or Samsung, or the plethora of usual smartwatch features, but instead the Activité does something far more important - it proves less really can be more.
