Withings is onto something with its Activité smartwatches

Withings is onto something with its Activité smartwatches | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

For the past two weeks, I ditched my Apple Watch for the new Activité Steel, which is available exclusively through the Withings website. The $170 device, like the Activité Pop and Activité before it, is a 24/7 smartwatch that tracks physical activities during the day and sleep patterns at night.

Olivier Janin's insight:

Good review of the Withings Activité, well documented.

Richard Platt's curator insight, December 5, 2015 10:19 PM

Very comprehensive review of pretty good wearable design, particularly since they've differentiated along user profiles for what each of the  Activité  versions do.  The Activité Pop ($150), Activité Steel ($170), and Activité ($450) each target a different audience. At the same time, the Health Mate app guarantees that no one is missing out on the many features each watch offers. This is a brilliant move on Withings’ part and one that Apple is currently lacking with its Watch line, which starts at a pricey $349 for its entry-level model.

Withings Activité combines hi-end digital tech with classic mechanical fashion | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Withings Activité, a new generation watch combining time & activity tracking.

Olivier Janin's insight:

Well known for the cutting-edge quality its Smartbalance, Smart Tracker, Blood Pressure Monitor and its meaningfull tracking Apps "Health Mate", Withings introduced its smartwatch yesterday. 

 

"Withing Activité" is disruptive, combining the classic fashion world with the new tech of the digital health era. 

 

While Google is speading the market with very similar Android-wear Smartwatch, the French company delivers to the market a very bright product, able to fit to un-adressed segment of the wrist market. 

 

Will be available for $390

Boardroom To Bedroom: Should Your Boss 'Watch' You While You Sleep?

Boardroom To Bedroom: Should Your Boss 'Watch' You While You Sleep? | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it
Taking A Data-Driven Approach To Sleep Should companies take any interest in how their employees sleep? Sleep is one of the most intimate parts of our lives. Our dreams withhold our deepest fantasies, secrets and fears. As the head of a tech company devoted to health, I was asked to answer [...]
Olivier Janin's insight:

This is the third contribution of Cedric Hutchings - French Withings CEO - to Forbes in a couple of months. 

3 interesting notes about this paper : 

  • the insights about sleep-activity mashes up data collected through the Withings wearables and complementary surveys.
  • the trend for Wearables company is to publish articles that share deep insights ont their users data which became massive. Jawbone Lead Data scientist published such results a month ago ("What makes people happy?"). 
  • it is not banned to pusblish massified data even if they are guaranteed as anonymous in TOU.


By extension, it appears that such communication are able to reinsure audience and consumers, as well as nurturing the scientific research field. It definitely offers a positive image of the Wearable and Digital Health Tech companies (Samsung Simband ; Apple Research Kit ; Google Health Kit ...)
