Withings Steel HR – Activity Tracking Watch with Heart Rate Monitoring
Steel HR is the activity tracker with heart rate monitoring to offer a long-lasting battery life of up to 25 days, all housed in a classic watch perfect for transitioning from the gym to the office to a night out. Plus, stay connected with smartphone notifications that appear right on the watch screen.
All-Inclusive Heart Rate Monitoring
Because heart rate is a key indicator of overall health, Steel HR offers automatic heart rate tracking throughout the day and night. Explore daily heart rate variance and discover resting heart rate to understand how your heart responds to daily activities.
Steel HR continuously tracks heart rate during exercise to help you optimize workout performance. During workouts, see your heart rate with the push of a button. After, assess your overall performance with a personalized in-app report that delivers insights on maximum heart rate and time spent in each heart rate zone.
Track Activity and View Trends
Steel HR automatically recognizes walk, run, swim, and sleep and syncs data to the Health Mate app on your smartphone. In the app, visualize progress via detailed graphs and trend lines and get personalized coaching with insights, advice, and a leaderboard, where you can challenge friends.
Users can easily view their data on the digital display with a multifunctional button on the side of the watch. Each push of the button allows users to scroll through the date, heart rate, daily steps, calories burned, distance, and set alarm time.
On Time and In the Know
Steel HR provides enhanced connectivity with text, call, email, and event alerts right on the watch screen, as well as a silent vibrating alarm to help you get going in the morning, or off to your next meeting.
Long-Lasting and Water-Resistant
With a battery life of up to 25 days, Steel HR has one of the longest battery life of any heart rate tracker on the market, and fully recharges in just 2 hours. And with water resistance up to 50 meters, it can accompany you to the pool, hit the showers, and be ready for a night on the town.

What it does:
1. It tracks your steps, measures your heart rate, alarms, and displays notifications. The information you get: the time (either via old school hands or when you push a button via a VERY small but bright display), your steps (either a dedicated smaller dial or via the display), and then (only on the display): notifications (calls, texts, etc. pop up without intervention), your heart rate, miles traveled, battery level, and alarm.
2. The heart rate is “sampled” every few minutes 24x7. If you want, you can hold down the crown for a few seconds. This causes heart rate to be measured constantly during a workout; holding down the crown again stops the constant measurement.
3. You configure the watch and see the data on a companion phone app. You don’t have to have your phone with you to use the watch, but you need the app to change your time or date, time zone, etc., etc.
How well does it work? Do I like it?
1. For me, pretty well. The step count looks accurate, as does the heart rate.
2. It’s nicely made, doesn’t look “geeky,” and fits well on my large wrist. It sticks up a bit, but not overly so. (See pic.)
3. it’s nice that Withings ties all the data from all their instruments together. I have the blood pressure cuff, the Aura alarm/sleep monitor, the “thermo”(memeter), and the Cardio scale. Everything gets aggregated.
4. The battery life is fantastic. Days and days and days, even if using continuous heart rate during exercise.
What it doesn’t do (or doesn’t do well):
1. Play well with others. I use Strava for tracking bike rides, etc., and unlike Garmin and other sports-oriented watches, it’s not really practical to export heart rate data from Withings, e.g. in .FIT or .GPX. As a result, I wear two watches while running, and use a 2nd heart rate monitor for exercise. At a minimum, it would be nice if it broadcast heart rate over Bluetooth when in “constant measurement” mode.
2. Present the data in a great way. Withing’s web and mobile experience is easy to figure out, but sometimes simplicity is the enemy of clarity. For example, the scale on most of their graphs is almost impossible to read. See the pics: the "sleep" picture with the Lumosity graph are from the Aura... without is from this watch. Also, the watch heart rate is aggressively smoothed... more so than with the Aura.
3. Be easy to read. The hands are very narrow, and in low light are hard to read. And the digital display is REALLY tiny. Very annoying!
4. Accurately track sleep. The Aura and it disagree on when I go to sleep or get up; the Aura is right…
5. Be easy to charge. The charger dongle is custom (always a worry that you'll lose it). The phone can easily disconnect from it (just look at it funny). Why can't everyone just use wireless Qi charging?
So, what’s the bottom line?
It’s a great health watch, but only a so-so fitness watch. I will wear it proudly 24x7, but will also have to strap on my Garmin watch when working out. Honestly, most of the things getting in the way of it being a fitness watch could be fixed in their mobile app or web service.
And, any ideas for them? Yes! V2 of this watch should get rid of the small “steps” dial and instead have a “seconds” hand. Except that the “seconds” hand could be configured in the app to mean either seconds, “steps” (%age of goal), or “heart rate” (%age of max). Also, make the digital display a lot bigger. No need to have the funny small top small dial for it — just let it go across the entire watch face.
Caveat: I work for a company that's related to another company that makes watches, phones, and most everything else. I'm writing this as an individual, and have no interaction with the teams building consumer devices.
And a coda after using it constantly for a few weeks. I love the battery life and quick charge. I just toss the watch onto its charger for a few minutes once or twice a week. That's it. I definitely don't love its heart rate tracking, especially during a workout. Hit or miss, I'm afraid. It's good enough for the occasional samples 24x7, just not for anything else.

To clear up a few misconceptions I have seen about this product:
What this product is: a fitness tracker, with some more advanced fitness capabilities. This product is NOT a running watch, or intended to do split intervals and second accuracy for runner training, or be an advanced smart watch. It is intended to compete with fitbit, misfit, jawbone, garmin vivofit etc. This product is NOT intended to compete with apple watch, android ware, tomtom runner, garmin forerunner or polar smart sports watches.
My impressions coming from the activite pop:
- updated look, less "toy like" than the activite pop
- much lighter on the wrist
- the digital screen is not distracting, unless you are looking straight on and the light hits it just right. I glance at the screen more than anything
-the thickness is similar to the activite pop
-the dials are easier to read
-more accurate sleep tracking, the activite pop would tend to say i was sleeping for 5-10 minutes after I had gotten out of bed.
-the steps tracked seem to be lower. the same route I walk every day with the dog returns about 300 steps less than the activite pop would count.
-battery life, the product looses 2-3% battery for every day use which is very good.
-the constant activity tracking mode is easy to start (hold the dial for 3 seconds) and gives me better insight for running, compared to the activite pop
-HR tracking is reasonably accurate.
-the constant HR tracking though the day is useful to know when you should get up from your desk to walk around, however it does not prompt you to do so.
-notifications light up and buzz, but are not distracting
-since I had the activite pop associated to my withings account already, the steel HR setup process was supposed to automatically remove the activite pop and associate itself. setup failed twice, and the third time I manually removed the activite pop, and the steel HR setup went smoothly
-the charger can fall off in a stiff breeze, and takes me a few tries to attach to the back (even though there are magnets). it also doesn't come with a usb outlet charger, so you need to buy one, or charge from a computer. Thankfully you only have to deal with this for a few hours once a month. Which is better than fitbit needing to be charged every 36 hours.
-very limited notification options (phone, text, calendar). hopefully something that can be fixed with software updates
-the wrist band feels fragile

The only two negatives are: (1) the length of the watch band shipped with the 40mm is incredibly long. I order a Barton Band which is 1 1/2" shorter and a Snug deployment buckle band (adjustable) - quite a difference given there is no option to shorten the Withings band. Withings should either offer a shorter band or make it adjustable. I should note that the quick release pins make it very easy to change the bands and I like have that optionality. (2) there isn't a Health Mate app for the iPad. Not sure why. I should also note that I haven't had any problems reading the activity OLED display, even in sunlight.
Overall - this is the perfect activity tracker for anyone interested in having one but who prefers doing wearing one in a stealthy mode. It truly looks like a watch. I love it and wear it every day, much to the dismay of my much more expensive watches.
