“Withings Activite” an unusual smart watch that does not take the usual route

LWhen it comes to smart watches, people first think of smart watches such as Apple Watch and MOTO 360, but today we are going to talk about a smart watch that is not so smart, Withings Activite .

Strictly speaking, Withings Activite cannot even be considered a smart watch. Whether it is a traditional dial design or a so-called “smart” function, it is at best a “watch that can be connected to a mobile phone.”

It doesn’t run stand-alone apps like other smart watches, nor can it make calls or send text messages, and it doesn’t have any black technology to show off to friends. It only has the functions of step counting and sleep quality monitoring. Although it also has the function of vibrating the alarm clock, it is very tasteless, because almost everyone will take off their watches when they are sleeping.

Even so, Withings Activite still has a large group of its own fans. The main reason is the appearance, the design style of Bauhaus can fascinate a large group of people. The leather strap, sapphire glass, and Swiss OEM production make people feel that Withings wants to make a delicate watch, not an electronic product like a mobile phone that drops in half in price every year.

Withings Activite is available in black and white with two dial styles, with black and brown straps respectively. No matter which style it is, it is versatile for everyday use. The white plate and brown belt are particularly gentlemanly and full of leisure; the black plate and black belt are full of technology and business style.

There is no non-stop rotating second hand on the dial, only the design of the hour and minute hands, which is not only simple, but also allows people to recognize the time faster. The dial is divided into two: a large dial and a small dial. The large dial is responsible for displaying the time; the small dial shows the amount of daily exercise, and 50 and 100 represent the percentage of exercise completed that day.

In addition, Withings Activite does not provide a charging function like other smart devices on the market today. When it is out of power, you have to take off the battery and replace it with a new one. However, the battery can last for 8 months to 1 year. Compared with ordinary smart watches, the battery life is a complete victory. However, if you turn on the vibration or exercise too much, it will increase the power consumption and shorten the battery life.

There is also a small design that has to be mentioned. The strap of Withings Activite is a quick-change spring bar design. In addition to the standard French calfskin strap, it is also equipped with a gray silicone wrist strap, which is convenient for swimming or swimming. Quickly change the strap during other sports.

But it should be noted that when the official promoted Withings Activite, it deliberately avoided the issue of its thickness. In fact, the thickness of its dial is similar to that of a traditional mechanical watch, not as thin as the promotional picture. In addition, the dial is not big, and boys will look smaller when they wear it.

In addition, if Withings Activite is too expensive, there is now a cheaper Withings Activite Pop to choose from.
